Qualification Details

The candidate should have a Master's degree in an area relevant to the subject, e.g. aerospace engineering, atmospheric science, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, (applied) physics, or other related area. For the postdoc position, the candidate should hold a PhD in an area relevant to the subject.

- A combination of good analytical skills and advanced programming skills with a strong interest in interdisciplinary work is advantageous for this position.

Responsibilities/Job Description

Aviation emissions adversely impact the environment, contributing both to air pollution and climate effects. The projected growth in aviation emissions and projected decline in emissions from other energy and transportation sectors, result in aviation emissions' impacts being increasingly important in both absolute terms and relative to other sectors.

State-of-the-art atmospheric models that simulate the chemical and physical processes in the atmosphere are employed to assess the resulting atmospheric effects of emissions, as well as to understand the underlying processes and how they may evolve in the future. This position aims to utilise such models, together with observations, to extract metrics applicable in engineering and regulatory decision-making for sustainable aviation. Outcomes of this research are aimed to help guide decisions towards minimising the associated environmental impact of future aircraft and operations.

Application Method: Online Application
Ref. No.: TUD01481

Application Procedure

The application should include a detailed CV, 2 reference contacts, proof of English language level and copies of your BSc and MSc degrees and transcripts, along with a motivation letter by 31 May 2022.

If your MSc diploma and transcript are not in Dutch or English and you will be the selected candidate, the TU Delft will ask you to deliver a certified translation.

About the Department/Section/Group

The PhD or Postdoc position will be hosted in the Aircraft Noise and Climate Effects Section of the Department of Control and Operations of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering. The mission of the Department of Control and Operations is to improve the safety and efficiency of operations in aerospace and to reduce the impact on the environment. The department comprises three sections: Control and Simulation, which focuses on the development of advanced automatic control systems (including the role of the human operator), Air Transport Operations, which aims to improve operational performance in terms of capacity, safety and economy, and Aircraft Noise and Climate Effects, which focuses on reducing aircraft noise, emissions and the effects of aviation on climate change and air quality.
