Post-doctoral Position: Dynamic Modelling for Sustainable Energy Systems Through Hydrogen Integration

The University of Twente is inviting applications for its 3-year postdoctoral position on dynamic modelling for sustainable energy systems through hydrogen integration.

In this 3-year project, candidates will develop a comprehensive dynamic model for green hydrogen production plants. Through detailed modelling, you will investigate the dynamic operation of these systems, ensuring seamless transitions between different operational states. They will analyze transient behaviors to identify the critical parameters affecting the dynamic performance of both the electrolyzers and the integrated systems. Additionally, they will conduct parametric analyses at multiple levels, including the stack, sub-system, and system levels, to determine the necessary measures to achieve predefined targets. Throughout this process, they will consider all relevant aspects related to dynamic behaviour and optimisation, encompassing emerging technologies and various forms of energy flow, including heat and power, within the model.

Duration: 3 years.


  • A gross salary between € 3.877 and € 5.090 per month, depending on experience and qualifications.
  • An annual holiday allowance of 8% of the gross annual salary and an annual end-of-year bonus of 8.3%.
  • A solid pension scheme.
  • Minimum of 29 leave days in the case of full-time employment.
  • Professional and personal development programme.

Job Requirements

Applicants for this position must meet the following criteria:

  • Hold a PhD degree in electrochemistry, sustainable energy technology, mechanical engineering, or chemical engineering in a field that is closely related to this position.
  • Have proven experience working in multidisciplinary teams. Have a set of cooperative skills that are essential to being effective in an international project.
  • Good writing skills and have written technical reports and/or scientific papers.
  • A creative person who shows initiative with a hands-on mentality.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Have previous experience in the dynamic modelling and analysis of electrolysers, fuel cell systems, integrated energy systems, and heat recovery.
  • Are fluent in English, both spoken and written.
  • A high degree of responsibility and independence while collaborating with close colleagues, researchers, and other university staff is strongly encouraged.
  • Willing to be involved in educational tasks.
