Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:
The main objective of the project is to conduct research on Advanced Digital Design, in particular Design Automation, in the context of the construction industry. This advances ongoing work in Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC). This includes leveraging “Industry 4.0” approaches. The Post-Doctoral Research Associate has an opportunity to significantly shape the associated research program between DTU, NCC, the MADE consortium and other companies in the construction sector. The Post-Doctoral Research Associate will be part of the division of Engineering Systems at DTU’s Management Engineering Department, and is closely associated with the Virtual Design and Construction activities (VDC) at NCC (one of the leading construction and property development companies in the Nordic region) as well as Denmark’s leading industry network for the digitalization of manufacturing, MADE Digital. Responsibilities and tasks The research program is focused on a) development of approaches to translate business needs into specific requirements regarding Advanced Digital Design and Design Automation capabilities within BIM and VDC, b) development of approaches to effectively phase in Advanced Digital Design and Design Automation techniques into construction project execution, and c) leverage and exploit similar activities in the production industry in the context of “Industry 4.0” research. The expectation is that digitalization in the construction industry will lead to a significant productivity improvement through better design coordination, higher design quality, and reduced risk. Through the last years, DTU and NCC have strategically developed their capabilities within BIM and VDC. Strategic development opportunities for the candidate This research project has the strategic aim of establishing a significant research program at DTU. The overall funding framework includes, in addition to this 2-year Post Doctoral Research position, one additional 2-year PostDoc position at DTU, which may be considered to extend funding for this project if successful, and a related PostDoc project at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). Additionally, there are several specific grant opportunities for the candidate to acquire supporting PhD projects to build their own vibrant research group. The candidate has an opportunity to significantly contribute to the establishment of this research program, preparing them for a transition to a tenure track position. Denmark in general and DTU in particular offers the world’s best work-life balance and a very collegial work environment. It is particularly attractive for Post Doctoral Research Associates with young families. Qualifications Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent. We expect the candidate to have a strong academic track record in advanced digital design practices in the construction industry, including for example VDC and BIM practices, early design and architecture decisions, detailed design and engineering, as well as their extension and integration with the actual construction process. The candidate must have shown the ability to effectively engage with industry and other practitioner communities, and bridge between the academic and industry stakeholder communities. As the candidate will have the opportunity to assume a leadership role in shaping the academic direction of the research program, as well as build an effective industry alliance, demonstrated leadership experience is a plus. Similarly, a prior exposure to “Industry 4.0” activities in the production sector is a plus, particularly in the design context. Further qualifications include: •Excellent communication skills, fluent written and oral English. Danish language skills are not required, but considered a plus if present. •Ability to work results-driven and effectively towards self-imposed deadlines. •Team spirit and cooperation skills Ability to communicate results to a non-
