The Section for Manufacturing Engineering at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, performs research based on a multi-disciplinary use of process technology, materials science, solid and fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics in the analysis, modelling and development of manufacturing processes. The research objective of the Section is to promote ‘Precision Manufacturing’ to meet the performance, durability, reliability, size, and cost requirements of modern products. 

We invite applications for a 3-year PhD position to join an exciting new research group in the field of “Development of Sustainable Materials for Construction 3D Printing” to work on a project, where the goal is to develop a new eco-friendly and intelligent composite material system to overcome the limitations of existing 3D printable concrete materials. The position is funded by the VILLUM Foundation Young Investigator Programme. 

Responsibilities and tasks
The merging of 3D printing in construction is providing sophisticated tools to open up new technology avenues in the field of construction and interior design. However, as with any new technology, there are still significant challenges related to construction materials, cost, technology and environmental impacts that need to be addressed to achieve desirable sustainable structural properties in construction and building sectors.Therefore, this PhD project is dedicated to create conceptually novel printable sustainable construction materials that not only is able to overcome the limitations of existing 3D printable concrete materials, but also provides other functionalities during the lifecycle of the building. 

Your main responsibilities will be to: 

  • maintain accurate and complete records of all findings
  • ensure the validity and reliability of data at all times
  • write progress reports and prepare results for publication and dissemination via journals, presentations and the web
  • take initiatives in the planning of research
  • collaborate closely with leading European research partners
  • work within and for a wider research project requiring deliveries of modular and tightly connected project tasks
