We really are a diverse bunch.

Join the team!

We are always on the lookout for new students and colleagues!
For example there are a couple of opportunities for postdocs!

If you would like to join the group, please contact the group leader, Prof. Andrei Lavrinenko. 

You may also find it valuable to consult the list of open positions at DTU.
