    About Research project

    You will work closely with the other members of the research group and the external partners in the project.  We therefore expect that you have strong communication and collaboration skills and are prepared to work in interdisciplinary research setting. The research is expected to lead to several journal papers and we therefore expected good dissemination skills documented through a strong publication track record.  As a postdoc, you will have the opportunity to contribute to other on-going research projects in the group as well as opportunities to contribute to supervision of Masters and PhD students

    The postdoctoral fellowship is funded by Innovation Fund Denmark. There is funding for 3 years of employment. For international applicants, Aarhus University offer help with relocation, housing and formalities

    About the Department

    Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Electrical and computer engineering are closely related engineering disciplines that focus on the development of hardware and software for intelligent units and networks. This includes hardware at system and component levels as well as many different types of software for controlling electronic devices and networks.


    • Letter of reference : If you want a referee to upload a letter of reference on your behalf, please state the referee’s contact information when you submit your application. We strongly recommend that you make an agreement with the person in question before you enter the referee’s contact information, and that you ensure that the referee has enough time to write the letter of reference before the application deadline. Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure that letters of reference received after the application deadline will be taken into consideration
    • Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity
