The Division of Dynamics at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences seeks applicants for a position as Associate Professor in Dynamics and Control of Mechanical Systems. Your research interests should fall within the broad range of topics, from theoretical modeling to advanced applied engineering problems in cooperation with industry. There are numerous of opportunities for collaboration with other researchers and research groups at Chalmers as well as with several possible industrial partners in the region. Alongside the research program you are expected to actively take part in and develop teaching activities within the department.
Information about the division
The Division of Dynamics has ten faculty members and ten PhD students and has its research activities organized through four research groups: Mechanical systems, Structural dynamics, Wave propagation and Railway mechanics. The research at the Division of Dynamics is mainly focused on a variety of solid dynamics problems, such as vibrational problems, fatigue, wear, contact mechanics, wave propagation, optimization and dynamics of smart material. The teaching activities of the Division of Dynamics are very broad, from several courses at bachelor level on mechanics and solid mechanics to masters' level courses such as finite element methods, rigid body dynamics, structural dynamics, fatigue and fracture mechanics.
There are plenty of research opportunities within the area of Dynamics and Control of Mechanical Systems; from fundamental modeling and development of algorithms to the study of applied engineering problems in cooperation with industry. This could include control and reliability of mechanical systems, mechatronics, computational kinematics, multibody dynamics, nonlinear vibrations, or modeling of active smart material structures. Possible application areas may be within sustainable energy (wind, water, wave) and transportation systems (road, rail, marine and aircraft industries) but other areas such as flexible manufacturing and robotics, biomechanics, micromachines and artificial intelligent systems are also welcome.
As an Associate Professor you are expected to take an active part in the advancement of the research and teaching activities related to the area of Dynamics and Control of Mechanical Systems. Primary responsibilities for this position include:
• Develop research within the relevant field in cooperation with academy and industry.
• Participate in and develop teaching on bachelor and master's level within the solid mechanics field.
• Attract funding from industrial partners and research agencies.
• Contribute to research centers at Chalmers, e.g., the six Areas of Advance.
• Take an active part in contributing to a well-functioning academic environment and collegial activities at the department.
• Fulfilling the department goals on outreach activities together with current and future partners, within Sweden and internationally.
Full-time permanent employment.
As an Associate Professor you are expected to have the full range of qualifications, experience and abilities to fulfil the primary responsibilities, which include but are not limited to:
• Doctoral degree in mechanical engineering or a related field, e.g., applied physics.
• Proven, or potential for, high quality scientific research as evidenced by publication records. The ability to achieve results through cooperation with other researchers, both locally and globally, is of particular importance for this position.
• Proven pedagogical track record and accustomed to supervision and teaching within various courses related to mechanics at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
• Capability to attract funding and lead projects with various partners; both within academia and with industry.
For all Associate Professors at Chalmers
For a definition of the academic level for the position of Associate Professor, please consult our Appointment regulations, section 6.3. Your qualifications and academic level will be evaluated by the department, by Chalmers Faculty Appointment Committee, and by external expert evaluators.
We require all our teaching faculty to have courses in higher education pedagogics in accordance with SUHF’s recommendations. If you have not had the possibility to take courses on teaching and learning in higher education, you will be required to take such courses at Chalmers within the first two years of employment. General information about pedagogical qualifications at Chalmers can be found here.
The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, we would like you to be able to teach in Swedish on undergraduate level after two years. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the coastal city of Gothenburg.
