Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:

If you are interested in gaining the qualifications and experience to pursue a career where advanced mathematical techniques are developed and used in areas such as digital manufacturing, then a PhD in mathematics from DTU Compute is an ideal start. We seek two ambitious and highly motivated PhD candidates with a strong background in mathematics and an interest in developing new geometric concepts and algorithms for potential applications in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction sector.  The positions will be at the Section for Mathematics at DTU Compute, in the greater Copenhagen area, and will involve collaboration with project partner SINTEF AS in Norway.

The positions are funded by the EIC Pathfinder Challenge project STACK, the objective of which is to pioneer a mathematical framework and develop computational design tools for freeform surface “stackability”, complemented by 3D elastica theory, for potential applications in advanced digital fabrication workflows.

Responsibilities and qualifications

For both positions you are expected to:

  • Develop novel mathematically based theory and algorithms directed towards the goals and milestones of the STACK project. 
  • Publish results in international academic journals and present results at conferences.
  • Collaborate with partners within the STACK consortium.
  • Perform some limited teaching and other departmental duties.

Additionally, the requirements for the two positions are:

Position 1:

You will work on theory and algorithms related to surface “stackability”, the basic idea of which is to decompose a surface into groups of pieces that are geometrically similar. This involves finding algorithms for general surfaces, based on local and global geometric properties, as well as considering special surface classes for this property. A mathematically related degree and knowledge of, and an interest in, geometry of surfaces in 3-space is an essential prerequisite.  Knowledge of computational geometric algorithms, optimization, and machine learning techniques would be favourably regarded.

Position 2:

You will focus on the problem of mathematical modelling with 3D elastic curves, applications in hot blade cutting, as well as relations with stackability. A mathematically related degree, with knowledge of, and an interest in, geometry, physics, and mathematical modelling is a prerequisite. Knowledge of optimization and machine learning techniques is an advantage.

Applicable for all scholarships

You must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.

Approval and Enrolment


The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see DTU's rules for the PhD education



The assessment of the application will be made by Associate Professor David Brander.

We offer

DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment.

Salary and appointment terms 

The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years. 

The preferred starting date for both positions is 1 October 2024, or according to mutual agreement. The positions are full-time.
