Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Miniaturised Space Systems

The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology invites applications for a Tenure Track Assistant Professor position of Miniaturised Space Systems.

Future space systems will heavily rely on miniaturized satellites. These satellites may have limited capacity as compared to large satellites, but they can be very cost- and time effective. Furthermore, when they work together, the system performance can be enhanced, and in some cases, unprecedented functionalities can be realized. An example is CubeSats, which boosted the development of very small satellites and enabled new applications such as the daily update of global remote sensing observations. These applications stress the potential, in particular, of scientific opportunities using miniaturized space systems. However, the advancement of such systems requires further research to optimize their capabilities at various levels.

Duration: A tenure-track position for 6 years.


  • Salary and benefits are by the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
  • The TU Delft offers a customizable compensation package and a monthly work costs contribution.
