dinsdag, november 6, 2018 - 15:13

The position
As lecturer-researcher you will participate in the execution and development of the Bachelor of Science curriculum in the area of Flight Operations Engineering. Flight Operations Engineering (FOE) strives for optimal standards for aircraft operational performance with maximum fuel-efficiency, capacity, safety and environmental sustainability. The field of FOE includes support and optimization for flight operations as well as air traffic management and navigation, aeronautical information and charting. Knowledge of aircraft performance is required.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • teaching classes and workshops;
  • supporting students in their study process and their personal, professional and research skills;
  • supervising internship and graduation students dependent on your experience and skills;
  • improving the quality of the educational program;
  • strengthening the cohesion in the curriculum;
  • expanding your network in the industry;
  • promoting innovation in education and the curriculum and matching it to current and future industry expectations.

Most courses are given in English. With respect to your teaching responsibilities you will report to the team manager Aviation Engineering, who is also the responsible line manager.

At the moment we do not foresee any separate research activities in this position. However, when we see research opportunities, you may also play a role within the Aviation Engineering research program in the future. In that research role, you could participate in (inter)national research projects, assist in formulating (international) research proposals, write scientific and professional publications and, as a member of the faculty, make an active contribution to the roadmap and implementation of the research program. With respect to any future research responsibilities you will report to the Professor of Aviation Engineering.

The Aviation Academy has a comprehensive relation and knowledge network within the aviation sector in the Netherlands and abroad, consisting of companies, government institutions and educational establishments. For example, the Aviation Academy is the initiator of the new Air Transport and Aeronautics Education and Research Association (ATAERA) network. Eleven aviation programs in Europe and across the globe are now working closely together in the areas of education, research and partnerships with the aviation industry. In the context of your responsibilities you will be maintaining and expanding this network and will contribute to the (inter)national positioning of the Aviation Academy.


What we are looking for
We are looking for a master-level aviation professional with at least several years of broad, relevant and practical experience working for an airline or similar. Preferably your experience covers operational aircraft performance, flight planning and aircraft systems.
You have a positive and supporting attitude towards students. Coaching and motivating of students should be second nature. You also have good verbal and written skills in English. You have a teaching endorsement or are prepared to obtain one (with our support).


The above responsibilities are equivalent to the position of lecturer-researcher 2. Wage scale 11 (HBO CAO - Collective Labour Agreement for Bachelor-level Education) applies for this position and the actual salary depends on your qualifications and experience. The maximum salary is €4,661,- gross per month for a full appointment. Initially this is a temporary appointment for one year. Extension of the appointment after one year is foreseen but may depend on proven suitability, staff capacity levels and the influx of new students.
