The Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands is seeking to fill the position of Project Developer, E-Refinery, Energy Storage and Geothermal Energy.

TU Delft in the Netherlands has published a job opening for a Project Developer Energy – E-Refinery, Energy Storage, Geothermal Energy. Deadline is July 7, 2019.

Job Description

How challenging is it to develop groundbreaking projects at TU Delft together with Dutch and European researchers, companies, starting entrepreneurs and students? We can only achieve this with the help of talented “project developers”. We think it is important that the development of such innovation and / or educational projects runs smoothly and with good prospects, so that they can actually be implemented with European and national subsidies. And let that be your specialty as a “project developer”.

You are going to do this

You help scientists and their (possible) business, academic and start-up partners develop projects and raise money for them. You do this by offering support in the entire process from project idea to fully developed project. TU Delft is an important partner in large leading European consortia, so-called Knowledge & Innovation Communities, within which projects are developed and implemented with subsidies from the European Union, among others. In addition, TU Delft has an X! Delft collaboration program with leading companies, from which research, innovative project ideas and initiatives arise. You interact frequently with TU Delft employees who generate these collaborations.

What does a working day look like? You initiate, facilitate the interaction between researchers and R&D employees of companies to formulate innovation and / or education projects that will have a social impact. You create the preconditions for successful project formulation and you write and exchange information between the intended partners in order to be able to start the project over time.

You interact with the intended partners in South Holland, the Netherlands and Europe by actively participating in network activities. You maintain proactive contact with all players in order to arrive at the strategically correct approach. You give presentations, arrange and organize workshops and meetings.

Together with your colleagues from the NL Research funding and EU Research funding departments and the project managers, you ensure that the project proposal that you have developed is submitted and funded if successful.

Job Requirements

This is you

You are a self-starter who does not shy away from a steep learning curve. You have good communication (Dutch and English) and (intercultural) cooperation skills and you are able to understand the essence of research and project ideas relatively quickly. You are good at writing, you are creative and you are able to distinguish between roles, tasks and functions of players in a project or program development process.

You have a friendly and patient way of communicating with others. Despite their different backgrounds and interests, you know how to connect people, through the content of research, their own motivation and by listening carefully. This allows you to effortlessly maintain a relevant network and work in a team context.

But you also know how to achieve the right results through your proactive attitude. This is partly because you perform your work precisely and always think in terms of solutions. Moreover, you can handle time pressure well. With important deadlines you always keep your cool. And are there peaks in the work stock? Then you flexibly adjust your schedule accordingly. We also ask:

  • At least an HBO level with relevant education, preferably civil engineering and related to geothermal energy, energy and soil science.
  • One to three years relevant work experience at a large company, a start-up or knowledge institute or university.
  • Knowledge of subsidy application processes is recommended.
  • Control of Microsoft Office applications such as Access.
  • Affinity with a complex and dynamic working environment, such as a university.
  • Excellent oral and written skills in Dutch and English.
