R&D Engineer

What are we looking for?

  • The responsibilities are multidisciplinary. You will participate in engineering research projects about natural ventilation, safety, thermal insulation, strength, energy performance of buildings and acoustics. You are closely involved in ongoing projects and you realise a number of key projects yourself.

    • Design optimization based on acting stresses and displacements
    • Improvement of thermal insulation
    • Estimation and calculation of acoustic performance based on test results
    • Advice about bomb blast and earthquake resistance
