As an Assistant/Associate Professor your focus will be on the following tasks:

• Research in electrical sustainable energy in the field of the integration of renewable energy sources and energy storage (electric vehicles) in DC networks and systems and future DC transmission grids, including supervising PhD and Master students. The focus will be on innovative theoretical and experimental research of system integration of renewable energy and energy storage (electric vehicles) in DC networks and systems and future DC transmission grids; design, control and protection of DC networks; innovative power electronic interfaces and converters for charging of electric vehicles; and real time simulation and hardware in the loop of DC systems. Breakthroughs are expected from grid integration of electric vehicles and new storage technologies, innovative DC microgrids and multiterminal DC grids, and system integration with power electronic interfaces.

• Teaching in the area of DC grids on the MSc level but also related subjects at the BSc level. Acquisition and management of national and international research projects, and establishing strong collaborations with academic and industrial partners.

• Participation in international bodies such as IEEE. A holistic approach, in which design, implementation, deployment, and analysis are integrated, is strongly desired; we expect the applicant to actively collaborate with other researchers from academia and industry to realise this aim.
