Can you turn the outcome of our research in railway operations and engineering into attractive education?

Job description

DelftRail aims to enhance the significance of advanced research in railway engineering and operations, thereby establishing a sustainable, robust and future proof railway system. DelftRail contributes to promoting the railway as Europe’s primary means of sustainable mobility, attracting additional research funding and fostering the education of interdisciplinary railway experts so urgently needed in the coming decades.

Throughout the years we have created a vast amount of knowledge through our research. The time has now come to make this knowledge available for educational purposes, not only within TU Delft but also for practitioners. 

In the first months you will meet with the different stakeholders to assess the existing resources and determine areas of educational demand. After this stage, you will work towards creating engaging courses and materials. It goes without saying this is done in close collaboration with the subject matter experts. Not only within the four faculties (Civil Engineering and Geosciences - Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering - Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science - Technology, Policy and Management) but also among our external partners. 

As you can see on you do not have to start from scratch, but we do expect you to take us to the next level! 


  • Collaborate with faculties and (external) stakeholders to design and develop a comprehensive curriculum for a university-wide master’s program (system engineering).
  • Ensure compliance with quality standards and accreditation requirements through regular reviews and assessments.
  • Contribute to the selection of learning resources, textbooks and multimedia content to support the master’s program.
  • Provide guidance and support to faculty members in instructional design and implementation of effective teaching practices.


Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)


If you have 

  • a background in educational science or another relevant academic discipline;
  • up to date knowledge about learning technology and the (im)possibilities of ICT in education;
  • innovative ideas about digital and online learning;
  • strong project management and coordination skills;
  • the ability to work closely and intensively with professors, senior lecturers, and other relevant stakeholders;
  • excellent communications skills and are fluent both in English and Dutch;

we look forward to receiving you application.

Experience with and/or knowledge of Systems Engineering is a big plus.
