Professorship (W3) in the Field of Thermal Energy Technology
Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH)
In line with the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg's ambition to further develop the city into a knowledge metropolis, Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) is expanding its activities in research and teaching. With its strategy of growth TUHH aims to expand its position as a leading international, interdisciplinary, and innovative university of technology.
TUHH is a modern and dynamic university, striving for international excellence in research and teaching. It sets the ideal conditions for unlocking the knowledge and innovation potential of today's technological challenges by combining its engineering expertise in the three focal areas Green Technologies, Life Science Technologies and Aviation and Maritime Systems with cross-cutting research on digitization and new materials.
As a part of its educational strategy TUHH is developing new, international degree programs for tomorrow's engineers, building on its excellent reputation for innovation in teaching and learning for the engineering sciences.
TUHH's strategy of growth envisages closer collaboration and networking with other scientific institutions in the Hamburg metropolitan region as well as strategic collaboration with industrial partners in application-oriented research.
Research Center for Energy Systems (CES)
TUHH will establish a Research Center for Energy Systems (CES) to meet the technical and societal challenges resulting from the ongoing transition towards a greenhouse gas neutral energy supply system. This research center will be part of the "Green Technologies" focal area of TUHH and will bring together seven different institutes to work on inter- and trans-disciplinary research topics. The goal is to tackle key research questions crossing technological, economic and environmental research fields.
The advertised positions for professorships in this context include management functions and are located at the intersection of process engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and civil engineering.
Willingness and ability to cooperate and collaborate, therefore, is considered essential for the success of the center. The positions are to be filled at the earliest convenience.
PROFESSORSHIP W3 IN THE FIELD OF THERMAL ENERGY TECHNOLOGY
Ref. No. P-19-10
The ideal candidate will have a background in mechanical engineering with experience related to aspects of thermal energy conversion systems based on solid, liquid and gaseous energy carrier. The scientific focus of this professorship as part of the School of Mechanical Engineering is on research and technological development of efficient and environmentally friendly aspects of sustainable combustion-based energy technologies. Research activities from one or more of the following subject areas are expected:
Development of advanced thermal energy conversion systems, processes and plants
Optimization of combined heat and power plants (CHP) with different thermal capacities for solid, liquid and gaseous energy carrier meeting given sustainability criteria
Technological challenges related to the use of special fuels (waste incineration, use of industrial residues, flue gas cleaning, carbon capture, ash related problems, innovative materials)
The successful candidate is expected to offer courses at least in:
Combined heat and power plants
Thermal energy conversion plants
The TUHH acknowledges exceptional and innovative teaching achievements and capabilities. Successful applicants will therefore contribute to TUHH's prominent profile of innovative teaching methods with high quality undergraduate (B.Sc.) and graduate (M.Sc.) courses. The courses are in English and German; for non-German speakers a willingness to learn German is expected.
TUHH is an equal opportunity employer and particularly welcomes and encourages applications from women. It is certified as a family-friendly university and supports dual careers. Applications by disabled persons with equal qualifications will be given preference.
The deadline for applications is February 2, 2020.
