Researcher Digital Production (0,4 fte)

Your challenge
You will be involved in the project: Circular Wood for the Neighborhood. In this project the DPRG  is investigating with partners (Ymere, Rochdale, Metabolic, TNO, TU Delft and many others) how to give new life to wood that is released during housing building renovations. Researchers are using robots to make the circular applications  of waste wood, in a viable and efficient way. The project is already running for a year. We are looking for a researcher who can work with the current team on  several applied case studies, this includes designing and making prototypes, guiding interns and calculating the impact of designs (with the KPI framework which has been developed in the project).

About you
You are an experienced computational design and digital fabrication researcher with a relevant master and/or academic / practical  background in architecture or engineering (preferably ‘mechatronica and robotica’, building engineering or industrial design engineering). Includes:

•    Experience with Rhino, Grasshopper and Adobe Cloud
•    Experience with making and building (models, prototypes, CNC technologies) 
•    Experience in  robotic production (preferably with a specific focus on non-standard timber assemblies/structures).

Dutch is the language of instruction at the AUAS but within the international team of DPRG English is spoken so we expect you to have relevant skills in both languages, or the willingness to learn Dutch. With your passion for research you can inspire your students and team members. You are a creative thinker, innovator, and motivator.

Where will you be working

The group carries out Research and Educational activities at the Robot Studio, in relation to three profiling themes of the Faculty of Technology: Smart Industry, Circular Transition and Designing Future Cities.
