    Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

    Because of the multidisciplinary nature of the projects, you are expected to possess strong fundamental engineering competencies, i.e. in mathematics, programming, signal processing, and documentation, and be able to learn independently. You must be able to handle theoretical, numerical, as well as experimental tasks


    • Knowledge and/or experience with numerical and mathematical modeling
    • Knowledge and/or experience in the fields of signal processing
    • Knowledge and/or experience in the fields of data-based modeling
    • Knowledge and/or experience with laboratory and/or field experiments
    • Experience with embedded and electro-mechanical systems is preferred
    • Ability to work independently to plan and carry out complicated tasks and to be a part of a large dynamic group
    • Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken is required

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    Your overall focus will be to strengthen the department’s competencies within computational modeling of design and optimization of mechatronic components for the development of novel electro-mechanical machine elements to be used in rotating machines. It means a good background in Rotordynamics and Experimental Mechanics is fundamental. You will work with nearby colleagues, and with academic and industrial partners in Denmark as well as abroad. Your primary tasks will be to:

    • Plan, design, and carry out laboratory experiments
    • Perform data acquisition and processing
    • Select and develop relevant physics-based and data-driven models
    • Develop models for maintenance applications
    • Collaborate and communicate with both academic and industrial partners
    • Co-supervise BSc and MSc student projects with a focus on experimental tasks
