Within the NWO Perspectief Programs Circular Circuits and SUBLIME are new vacancies open for application.

NWO Perspectief Program – Circular Circuits
The Circular Circuits project will develop a fully circular generation of electronics. It will develop solutions to overcome technical, economic and societal bottlenecks for lifetime extension, reuse, repair, refurbishment and recycling through development of a new generation of electronic components, product-service design, new business models and advanced recycling technology.

1 x PhD (M2i project number N21006c) at TU Delft, Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering, Corrosion technology and electrochemistry group in close collaboration with the Electronic components, technology and materials group , on understanding degradation of micro-electronics and enhancing their circularity. Link to vacancy: TUD03330 PhD Position Material degradation of micro-electronics.

1 x PhD (M2i project number N21006d) at TU Delft, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science – Electronic Components, Technology and Materials (ECTM) group, on the fundamental understanding of processes and phenomena that drive degradation and failure processes. Translate the multi-disciplinary knowledge basis into principles for prognostics and health monitoring and degradation sensors. Link to vacancy: Openings at ECTM.

NWO Perspectief Program – SUBLIME
Large steel infrastructures (bridges, sheet piles, lock doors) degrade in time through corrosion and fatigue. The goals of SUBLIME project are to increase the reliability and circularity of these infrastructures and to develop governance recommendations that operationalize the technical knowledge. Predictive digital twins will be developed that integrate structural health monitoring and prediction models. This will enable a much longer – but safe – use of these infrastructures. The consequent socioeconomic and environmental benefits will be assessed as well, and this unique combination of scientific expertise will result in specific technical and governance recommendations to achieve sustainable and reliable steel infrastructures
