    As part of a research project funded by the European Commission, the Technical University of Delft (TU Delft) has three PhD positions opened at the Air Transport and Operations group from the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering. These are full-time positions in the area of aircraft maintenance and operations research. The three topics are:

    • Maintenance Planning Optimisation under Uncertainty (LR18.07)
    • Risk Modelling and Simulation for Aircraft Maintenance (LR18.08)
    • Predictive Maintenance for Aircraft Systems (LR18.09)

    We are looking for talented and motivated candidates, with a passion for developing theory and models that can be implemented in decision-support tools. The PhD candidates will have the opportunity to work with several European partners in solving real operational problems. For all three positions, advanced analytical and modelling skills are required. Additional experience with operations optimization, data-driven techniques, or stochastic methods would be advantageous.

    Application deadline: April 15th 2018.
    For more information, please refer to the full announcement at TU Delft website.

    The same candidate can apply to more than one position if they match the interest and background of the candidate. To apply, please e-mail a detailed CV and letter of application to Refer to the position code when applying.
