Holder of the chair of electrical machines and drives at TECHNISCHE UNIVERSITAT DRESDEN (TU DRESDEN)

To TU Dresden, Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Institute of Electrical Engineering invites applications for the

Chair (W3) of Electrical Machines and Drives

to provide for earliest possible date.

You (m/f/x) will represent the field of research and teaching within the study programs in electrical engineering, mechatronics, regenerative energy systems, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering and teaching in close collaboration with the three faculties of the School of Engineering. Research and teaching in the field should be viewed holistically in the following energy systems in the sense of a cross-cutting subject: heterogeneous power plants, decentralized hybrid power generation and distribution structures, electro-thermodynamic machines and turbines hybrids as well as for environmentally friendly alternative energy sources (hydrogen, renewable energy sources, etc.). In addition, synergies in the logistics networking of electrical machines and drives with energy storage systems as well as in building energy technology systems, in storage concepts for sustainable mobility and robotics, new environmentally friendly materials for electrical machines and drives to increase efficiency and performance as well as for efficient miniaturization are to be researched and incorporated. We wish to strengthen the priority areas of research Energy, Mobility and Environment by networking research activities within the university and await the acquisition of third-party funds as well as your participation in academic self-administration.

You will have the opportunity to evolve in the following areas:

  • Electromagnetic energy converters and controlled drives using new functional materials, manufacturing technologies or machine learning methods,
  • Networked drive systems for industrial and mobile applications under the special aspects of digitalization for Industry 4.0, electromobility and the transformation of the energy system and
  • Resilient and networkable machines and drives for heterogeneous energy networks.

We look forward to your substantial support in

  • Theory, design, modeling, multiphysics simulation and design of energy efficient components and systems,
  • Control of mechatronic components and systems, etc. with AI algorithms,
  • Digital interaction with higher level IT protection and control systems,
  • Design using new materials and additive manufacturing processes,
  • High-speed drives and rotating energy storage devices, including magnetic bearings,
  • Intelligent cooling of drive components and
  • Controllable transformers for mains-coupled power supply.

We are looking for you as a scientific expert with international scientific credentials in the fields of electromagnetic and electromechanical energy conversion. You must prove successful scientific activity in one of the current fields of the nomination area, excellent research achievements with high development potential, experience in teaching the subject of electrical engineering, outstanding didactic skills as well as achievements in obtaining third-party research grants and in managing major research projects.

We want a dynamic, committed and conscientious researcher who inspires our students in teaching by demonstrating great motivational and didactic skills. Through relevant research experience, you will shape the contemporary and future profile of our faculty. Willingness to cooperate with professors of the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, especially in the field of electrical engineering, is a prerequisite. Applicants must fulfill the professional qualification requirements of § 58 of the Law on the Autonomy of Higher Education Institutions of the Free State of Saxony (SächsHSFG). Fluency in German is not a prerequisite for appointment. However, we expect the successful candidate to acquire sufficient German language skills to carry out teaching and administrative tasks within two years of appointment.

For any other questions, please contact the Dean of the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karlheinz Bock, e-mail: [email protected] or the head of the nomination committee, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Steffen Bernet, tel. +49 351 463-42137; Email: [email protected]

TU Dresden seeks to employ more female teachers. Accordingly, we particularly encourage women to apply. Applications from candidates with disabilities or requiring additional support are welcome. The University is a certified family-friendly university and offers a dual career service. If you have any questions on these topics, please contact the Equal Opportunities Officer of the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Ms. Lena Elspaß, tel. +49 351 463-40517) or the representative for employees with disabilities (Mr. Roberto Lemmrich, phone +49 351 463-33175).

Please submit your application, including a CV in tabular form, a description of your scientific career, a list of your scientific publications, and a list of courses taught, assessment results (preferably from the last three years) as well as a certified copy of the certificate of your highest university degree in hard copy to TU Dresden, Dekan der Fakultät Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, Herrn Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karlheinz Bock, Helmholtzstr. 10, 01069 Dresden, Germany and in electronic form via the TU Dresden SecureMail portal https://securemail.tu-dresden.de by sending it to [email protected] by October 6, 2022 (the arrival date stamped from the university’s central mail service applies).
