Qualification Details

We have positions open for new Post-Doc researchers. If you hold an MSc in Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering or equivalent, and want to join us in one of these positions, please send us your motivation and CV. Experience in superconductivity and/or cryogenics is recommended.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The research group Energy, Materials and Systems of the faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Twente is looking for talented and ambitiousPost-Doctoral researchers to join us in research on superconductivity and cryogenics

The research of EMS is application-oriented and focused on high-current superconductivity and on cryogenics. A large part of the R&D effort is on sustainable energy, with the ambition of developing technologies, materials and systems that play a key role in emerging energy chains. Superconducting solutions are for instance explored in wind turbines, material separation (for recycling technology) and future cryo-mechatronics. Apart from the cooling of superconducting magnets, cryogenics is relevant in life science, in food and medical applications and is also developed for low-vibration applications such as quantum technology and gravitational wave observatories.

EMS greatly benefits from its internationally recognized expertise and unique infrastructure and has an excellent track record in international projects that enable Big Science in organizations such as CERN, ESA and ITER.

About the Department/Section/Group

The research of EMS is application oriented and greatly benefits from its internationally recognized expertise and unique infrastructure on applied superconductivity and cryogenics. The main focus is on sustainable energy, with the ambition of developing technologies, materials and systems that play a key role in our future energy chains. We investigate the application of superconductivity in the power grid (e.g. superconducting cables for transport of electric power), as well as the application of cryogenic technologies and materials for liquid energy carriers such as liquid natural gas and hydrogen. The group has an excellent track record in international pioneering projects on sustainable energy (such as ITER on nuclear fusion), but also in non-energy related, but very challenging, projects at CERN and ESA.

The Faculty of Science & Technology (Technische Natuurwetenschappen, TNW) engages some 700 staff members and 2000 students in education and research on the cutting edge of chemical technology, applied physics and biomedical technology. Our fields of application include sustainable energy, process technology and materials science, nanotechnology and technical medicine. As part of a people-first tech university that aims to shape society, individuals and connections, our faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad, and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders. Our research has a high profile both in the Netherlands and internationally and is strengthened by the many young researchers working on innovative projects with as doctoral candidates and post-docs. It has been accommodated in three multidisciplinary UT research institutes: Mesa+ Institute, TechMed Centre and Digital Society Institute.
