Job description

Today’s bachelor students are expected to resolve tomorrow’s societal challenges, ranging from breakthroughs in healthcare to the energy transition. This is why, at TU Delft’s Electrical Engineering Education (EEE) team, we care deeply about education and our students. Not just in terms of teaching the basics, but helping students bridge theory, research and practice in a societal and ethical context but also on personal growth.

Lecturing theory and supervising the accompanying laboratory courses, tutoring integrated projects, you strive to implement theory and research in real-life challenges as an integral part of our education offering. You will also mentor and assess individual students. and supervise their undergraduate graduation projects. Based on your vision, you will improve, innovate current courses. You may be creating content in any relevant subject, e.g. including but not limited to quantum computing, bioelectronics and terahertz technologies. In addition, you will have an opportunity to teach mathematics and physics embedded in core engineering courses, focusing on circuit design or target technologies geared to stabilise multi-energy systems. Within the electrical engineering themes of our faculty, we offer you full flexibility to pioneer and contribute to outstanding undergraduate education, including our Honours Programme.

You will join our diverse team of educators who share a heart for education, striving for excellence and creating ethical awareness among our students. At EEE we foster an inclusive, safe, collaborative and supportive environment. We all bring our authentic selves to work, and share knowledge and experiences. The position also provides an opportunity to use an average of 20% of your time to conduct research in one of the EE-sections or the TU Delft’s Teaching Academy, our lecturers’ community geared to strengthening engineering education across faculty boundaries. If you wish to disseminate knowledge at conferences, we encourage you to do so.

Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three scientific disciplines. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we all use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make completely sustainable and future-proof. At the same time, we are developing the chips and sensors of the future, whilst also setting the foundations for the software technologies to run on this new generation of equipment – which of course includes AI. Meanwhile we are pushing the limits of applied mathematics, for example mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. In other words: there is plenty of room at the faculty for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1000 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
