Postdoc in composite manufacturing

The research group SDU Robotics at the University of Southern Denmark invites applications for a two-year position as Post Doc in automating manufacturing of large composite structures. The position is associated with the national project MADE Digital, funded by the Innovation Fund Denmark and will be executed in close collaboration with several Danish industrial partners. 


The main research objectives for the Post Doc will be: 


- To develop concepts for how to efficiently manufacture large composite structures. 

- To develop the necessary process models and perform scale experiments to validate models and thereby overall concept feasibility. 

- To implement and run simulations at various levels of detail to document the capabilities and expected output of the concepts. 


Candidates should hold a PhD related to robotics/automation or manufacturing of composite structures. The work will require a good intuition about mechanical design and the preferred candidate is able to design and do 3D drawing of mechanical solutions. Furthermore, the candidate should have strong mathematical skills to develop the necessary process models and be experienced with object oriented programming. Prior experience with 3D simulation will be an advantage. 


Further information can be obtained from Head of SDU Robotics, Professor Henrik Gordon Petersen, Phone: +45 6550 7931 or e-mail or to Associate Professor Lars-Peter Ellekilde, Phone +45 6550 7939 ore-mail
