Apologies for cross-postings.

The Knowledge Center Building & Systems TNO-TU/e will be offering
three PhD studentships starting in the autumn of 2001 for four years
at Technische Universiteit Eindhoven in The Netherlands.

The research will be in the general area of building performance
simulation. The research projects will focus on:
- simulation based design of innovative integrated building control,
- simulation based design of innovative integrated building systems,
- building performance simulation for post-design applications, or
- building performance simulation for early design phase applications

These studentships include salary and there is no tuition fee. There
is no need to be fluent in Dutch.

Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e) (www.tue.nl) and Netherlands
Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) (www.tno.nl) have
recently joined forces in research of building physics, building
services and human health.
A multi-disciplinary and international approach is the cornerstone of
this endeavor that will embrace PhD students, some postdocs and visiting
professors from different nations. 

The center will generate scientific, technological and (design) process
knowledge to contribute internationally to human well-being and welfare
in a sustainable built environment. The overall theme of research is Building
Design Support. It incorporates in-depth scientific and engineering knowledge
into new and innovative ICT-tools and knowledge to support the design of
modern buildings. The research incorporates 7 sub-themes: building acoustics,
heat and moisture, lighting, public health engineering, renewable energy
systems, strategic design support tools and building performance simulation.

General information for doctoral degree students at TU/e is available

Please do not hesistate to contact me for further information.

Applications, including a curriculum vitae and two named references, should
be emailed to the address below not later than 15 August 2001.
