The Delft University of Technology invites candidates to apply for the 
position of Full Professor and Section Leader in 'Fundamental Aspects of 
Materials and Energy' at the Faculty of Applied Sciences, Department 
Radiation, Radionuclides & Reactors.

Currently, the research of the section focuses on three main issues:
(1) Energy storage and conversion materials, that are relevant for the 
development of a sustainable energy economy, such as high power lithium 
ion batteries, hydrogen storage materials, solar cell materials and fuel 
cell materials
(2) Advanced construction materials, concentrating on the microscopic 
processes involved in optimizing high performance metal alloys
(3) Materials for (opto-)electronics applications, focusing on the 
development and advanced characterization of new materials (bulk and 
thin films) for improved opto-electronic devices, including solar cells

 Experimental activities are performed using the neutron scattering 
facilities and the intense positron beams of RID as well as the 
international facilities at ISIS and ILL. Computing is performed on an 
in-house PC cluster and at the national facility SARA. The group is part 
of a Center of Excellence on Sustainable Energy, a joint initiative of 
the three universities of technology in the Netherlands. In that 
capacity it hosts a chair on sustainable energy and the MSc program on 
Sustainable Energy Technologies. In addition, the group is part of the 
Delft Research Centers for Sustainable Energy and for Materials Science.

Job description:

The successful candidate will take overall responsibility and leadership 
of the section FAME in the capacity of section leader, and he/she will 
have educational tasks within the Faculty of Applied Sciences at the 
BSc, MSc and PhD level. The appointee will manage the section, leading 
scientific and technical staff, and supervising doctoral and 
postdoctoral researchers. In addition, the candidate will participate in 
organizational tasks and management issues of the whole department.

The ideal candidate:

has a PhD in physics or a closely related discipline and experience in 
neutron scattering, modeling, and/or other relevant methods; is creative 
with the ability to initiate and conduct research, particularly within 
the area of fundamental material sciences; has a proven track record of 
fundamental materials research in the area of sustainable energy or 
advanced construction materials; is a motivating leader, able to manage 
the section and to supervise doctoral and postdoctoral researchers; is 
an experienced teacher at all university levels; has established or is 
able to establish and maintain a network of interdisciplinary research 
collaboration; is able to attract external research funds.
