By exploring and prototyping mathematical optimization techniques, you generate alternative designs for complex products (machines, vehicles,…).
Companies are looking forward to take the next step towards an innovative design process. As a researcher in multidisciplinary design optimization, you will have the opportunity to work on challenging optimization problems and apply various optimization techniques to generate solutions for machine designers. Typical design problems are constraint-based and multiobjective, requiring advanced non-linear mixed-integer solvers.
Any experience with applications on machines and/or vehicles, or affinity with modelling software (Simscape, Amesim, Matlab, Simulink) is a plus.
Experienced engineers will also coach young researchers and lead projects.
Depending on your place of residence or preference, you can work on one of our sites (flexible workplace policy).
Flanders Make is the strategic research centre for the manufacturing industry. From our sites in Lommel, Leuven and Kortrijk, we stimulate open innovation through excellent research.
Our purpose: realising a top-level research network in Flanders that delivers full support to the innovation projects of manufacturing companies. This way, we want to contribute to new products and production processes that help to realise the vehicles, machines and factories of the future.
Because of our unique position between industry and research, our teams combine application and system proficiency with technological and scientific knowledge. We focus on 4 key competences, all based on modelling and virtualisation:
