Assistant Professor Cognitive Radar Signal Processing for Remote Sensing
Challenge: Embed cognitive processes into radar remote sensing.
Change: Closed-control loop in radar signal processing.
Impact: A multifaceted approach to health care and environmental challenges.
At TU Delft’s Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3) group, you’ll be working at the forefront of research into cognitive systems and remote sensing. The resulting applications range from long-term medical monitoring of elderly people, helping them remain in their homes longer, to enabling autonomous driving. The broad spectrum of applications includes also radar meteorology, sea state monitoring, subsurface sensing, bird spices classification at wind farms and some others

As Assistant Professor you will conduct scientific research, developing your vision and your scientific domain. You’ll grow your team to three or four PhD students whom you’ll be supervising to completion. For your research you’ll build your network of industrial partners and attract funding. You’ll be increasingly involved in teaching and supervising master’s students and possibly bachelor’s students. And you’ll develop academically challenging courses, helping us continuously improve our curriculum.
You’ll join our highly-motivated, supportive and cohesive team of professors, teachers, technicians, PhD students and master’s students. We will give you all the support you need to evolve in your tenure-track position, including a generous start-up package, as we’re used to growing talent at various academic levels. At MS3, you’ll find a
welcoming, friendly and open atmosphere. And we’re proud of having Europe’s leading radar infrastructure at our disposal! Our facilities include the fully reconfigurable polarimetric wideband radars PARSAX and MESEWI, our antenna measurement chamber DUCAT and our millimetre-wave and UWB radar indoor laboratory.
You thrive on generating and realising ground-breaking research, which you may demonstrate by e.g. embedding your ideas into operational radar systems, demonstrating their added value in applications, publishing and patenting your ideas. Leveraging your communication skills, you’ll connect with colleagues throughout the Faculty, helping us make our Faculty as a whole stronger. You also have the ability to build relevant networks and attract funding. In addition, you enjoy teaching and supervising students. Since the expected research is potentially dual-use, this position is only open to non-sensitive country nationals.
You also have:
- A PhD in electrical engineering, physics or applied mathematics.
- Demonstrable research experience in one or more relevant fields, such as remote sensing, radar, sonar, ultrasound or telecommunication, and a drive to work and learn in this multidisciplinary domain.
- Have a proven track record in your research field, as evidenced by refereed
publications in top quality journals.
- Show the potential to be an inspired and dedicated teacher.
- An excellent command of English, as TU Delft is an internationally diverse
If you feel this role would be a perfect match, but you cannot as yet tick all the boxes, we’d really like to get to know you, as you can learn and grow on the job!
Conditions of employment
A tenure-track position is offered for six years. In thesecondyear we’ll decide if you will be offered a permanent faculty position, based on performance indicators agreed upon
at the start of the appointment. We expect that you have the potential to grow towards an Associate Professor and/or Full Professor role in the future.
Inspiring, excellent education is our central aim. We expect you to obtain a University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) within three years if you have less than five years of teaching experience. This is provided by the TU Delft UTQ programme.
TU Delft sets high standards for the English competency of the teaching staff. The TU Delft offers training to improve English competency. If you do not speak Dutch, we offer courses to learn the Dutch language within three years.
Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount on health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution.
