Open assistant/associate professor position  in distributed Systems Simulation at Delft University of Technology (Tenure Track)

Faculty Technology, Policy and Management, Delft University of Technology

Job description

The systems engineering group at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and
Management from Delft University of Technology has an open position
for a tenure track in the area of distributed systems simulations.
Research focuses on the development of distributed simulation methods,
techniques, and environments to analyse, design and implement
distributed dynamic systems, including interactive gaming.
Participatory system design requires truly distributed models,
concepts and tools, involving both first order dynamics (validly
modelling the dynamics within the system), second order dynamics
(modelling the evolution of the system over time), and combinations
thereof. Within the Systems Engineering section, both the
multi-formalism, distributed, object-oriented DSOL simulation
framework and the distributed multi-agent platform AgentScape are used
for research and for system design.

A Tenure Track, a process leading up to a permanent appointment with
the prospect of becoming an Associate or full Professor, offers young,
talented academics a clear and attractive career path. During the
Tenure Track, you will have the opportunity to develop into an
internationally acknowledged and recognised academic. We offer a
structured career and personal development programme designed to offer
individual academics as much support as possible. For more information
about the Tenure Track and the personal development programme, please
visit www.tudelft.nl/tenuretrack<http://www.tudelft.nl/tenuretrack>.


Applicants should have the following qualifications:

1. A background in technical, mathematical, computer or design
sciences, with strong computer science and mathematical skills;
2. Excellent scientific credentials, i.e. a PhD, excellent publications
and preferably experience as a post-doc;
3. Experience in the development and use of continuous and discrete
models and simulation environments for complex system design;
4. Demonstrated appreciation and ability to work in an academic,
interdisciplinary environment with technical and social scientists;
5. Excellent didactic qualities and experience in multidisciplinary
teaching programmes;
6. A track record of attracting external funding;
7. A strong (international) network within the academic, industrial
and national and international governmental organisations.

Faculty Technology, Policy and Management

The Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management contributes to
sustainable solutions for technical challenges in society by combining
the insights from engineering with the humanities and the social

Designing for participation in today’s networked society is one of the
main challenges in system design. This challenge is central to the
“Governance and Participation” research programme within the Faculty
of Technology, Policy and Management (TPM) at TU Delft. Understanding,
modelling and designing the dynamics of participatory, socio-technical
systems are the core of this programme. Real-time modelling and
distributed simulation of coordination in large-scale, distributed
environments provide insights into the dynamics of such systems.

The design and management of participatory systems is the focus of
Systems Engineering’s research programme (see
www.participatorysystems.org<http://www.participatorysystems.org/>). Participatory systems are
socio-technical systems that enable and support participation in
today’s networked society in which realities merge. Distributed energy
markets, the Smart Grid, dynamic supply chain management, and
crisis/emergency management are examples of such systems. The
increasing dynamics, enabled by communication technology, require the
ability to anticipate and respond flexibly to emergent phenomena,
requiring new models of systems dispersed in time and location.

Conditions of employment

Maximum employment 38 hours per week (1 FTE)
Duration of contract Tenure track
Salary scale Euro 3,259 to Euro 5,070 per month gross

TU Delft offers an attractive benefits package, including a flexible
work week, free high-speed Internet access from home, and the option
of assembling a customised compensation and benefits package (the
‘IKA’). Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective
Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

TU Delft sets specific standards for the English competency of the
teaching staff. TU Delft offers training to improve English
competency. Inspiring, excellent education is our central aim. If you
have less than five years of experience and have not yet obtained your
teaching certificate, we allow you up to three years to complete this.
