Applicants should have a university degree (MSc) in aerospace engineering, material science and engineering, mechanical engineering, or any other scientific or technical area relevant to the proposed research and have a strong background in numerical modeling and/or experimental testing. Experience in astrodynamics, mission analysis and design is considered a plus, but more important are a strong motivation, demonstration of high-quality work, and being well-organized, precise, and creative. Furthermore, the candidate should have excellent written and oral English communication skills. Doing a PhD at TU Delft requires English proficiency at a certain level to ensure that the candidate is able to communicate and interact well, participate in English-taught Doctoral Education courses, and write scientific articles and a final thesis.
