Associate Professor in Multiphase Flow, Chalmers Tekniska Högskola AB
This position offers the successful candidate close engage in research, education and innovation in processes that involve multiphase flows. You will join an open and collaborative working environment focused on developing methods and solutions that enable a sustainable and competitive Swedish industry in areas where multiphase flows are present. You will also be encouraged to explore your own research trajectory in relation to current societal challenges.
Information about the research
Multiphase flows form the basis for a large number of natural and industrial phenomena of great significance for humans and the environment. Multiphase flows are by nature highly interdisciplinary and interface with many other subject areas and applications. The heart of multiphase flows lies in the presence of interfaces between gases, liquids and solids, and a strong connection between physical, chemical and mechanical phenomena in such systems. Several large industrial paradigm shifts may be enabled and/or significantly enhanced by the availability of more fundamental knowledge about multiphase flows, e.g. within nanotechnology, biotechnology, energy technology and porous media applications.
We aim to further strengthen Chalmers' position and visibility within the multiphase flow area, as well as to continue to forge new alliances and open up new collaborations to address current and forthcoming applications of relevance to society and Swedish industry. In this process, there is also a need to maintain a proper balance between fundamental and applied research within the multiphase flow subject area. Such a continued strategic development of multiphase flow research at Chalmers has the potential to significantly contribute to the realisation our overall vision for a sustainable future.
As an Associate Professor in Multiphase Flow, you will attract and lead externally funded research projects related to the multiphase flow subject area (in a broad sense). One of your major responsibilities as associate professor is to perform research, either as a member or head of a research group.
Over time, you will also contribute to Chalmers' education at all levels, by supervision of students, teaching and participation in improvement of courses. Furthermore, you are expected to develop an industrial network to utilize the results of your research activities and to enable the identification of coming industrial trends and challenges within the multiphase flow area.
You will be expected to take part in leadership and administration. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large.
Full-time permanent employment.
You are an independent researcher with a good overview of the multiphase flow research field. You have an aptitude and ability to supervise students, to mentor young researchers/post-docs and to manage research efforts. Your scientific output is well documented and your ability and will to collaborate with the external environment are strong and sincere. Requirement comprises either experience from performing academic research or qualified research and development in industry/the public sector.
The position of Associate Professor requires scientific expertise that is considerably higher than that required for a doctoral degree (corresponding to admission as docent) and at least 15 higher education credits in teaching and learning in higher education, as well as a course in supervision of research students. External candidates are expected to complete these educational requirements within two years of employment. You must be accustomed to teaching and be a skilled educator. For this reason, we place a great deal of emphasis on your pedagogical portfolio.
You enjoy working in a team and have the skill to lead and develop people. You also have the ability to network and connect with different stakeholders, both nationally and internationally.
The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, you should be able to teach in Swedish on the undergraduate level after two years. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
