Professor on AM at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)

At Norwegian University of Science and Technology(NTNU) in Gjøvik, Faculty of Technology and Mangement, there is a permanent 100% position as Professor/Associate Professor available.

Additive manufacturing (AM) is one of the strategic research areas for the faculty and in our laboratory we have an ARCAM EBM machine for metals and an EOSINT machine for polymers. The professor will be a member of our AM research team. We have AM focused projects with industry and is a partner in the Centre for Research Based Innovation SFI Manufacturing, where our focus is on Atomic scale modelling and AM.

Our faculty is located in Gjøvik approx. 100 km North of the Capital Oslo and close to the Raufoss Industry Park with automotive, aerospace and defence industry.

Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to develop strong, externally-funded research programs, participate in current Additive Manufacturing research activities at the faculty and teach graduate courses in the area of manufacturing and mechanical engineering with focus on AM. The hired professor will be the supervisor of 2-4 PhD students. Applicants with industrial background and ability to work across disciplines are especially encouraged to apply.
