Apply online The Department of Wind Energy has a vacancy for a Software Development Engineering position in the Loads and Control Section (LAC) at DTU Risø Campus. DTU Wind Energy is a mission driven university department with a vision to be the preferred university partner for the global wind energy sector. The department creates value for society through integration of research with education, innovation and research-based consultancy within key fields central to the development and use of wind energy. DTU Wind Energy develops state-of-the-art design methods to ensure the best performance, lowest cost and overall structural integrity of wind turbines as well as advance the design, operation and control of entire wind power plants for the future needs of the evolving energy system. This is a highly multi-disciplinary issue involving modeling of wind flow, aerodynamics, structures, controls, and more at varying levels of fidelity. LAC focuses on engineering models for loads and dynamics, aeroelastic stability, wind turbine and farm control, and wind farm design optimization, and implements its research in software tools and in courses to the benefit of the wind energy community in general. The position as a software development engineer is being posted in parallel with a researcher position with a similar focus on wind farm optimization. See the post here Responsibilities and tasks Your work will mainly be focused within systems engineering and optimization activities in research and commercial projects in Loads and Control Section at DTU Wind Energy.
