Using TCAS, near mid-air collisions can be avoided even with no ground control. This is of particular importance for aircraft flying over remote regions, which make up 70% of the world. Additionally, ADS-B equipped aircraft also benefit from an increased situational awareness in the sky. Nevertheless, both ADS-B and TCAS require all aircraft to be cooperative. Due to their dependence on a working transponder, these technologies become ineffective in case of transponder malfunctions or under jamming conditions.&nbsp;</p><p>We are therefore interested to develop new and modern concepts for&nbsp; collision avoidance and situational awareness in the sky. To allow for this, we propose to exploit the satellite navigation signals as ``signals of opportunity’’ and use their reflections off nearby aircraft to passively detect and estimate the position and velocity of these aircraft at the aircraft of interest, essentially realizing a passive multistatic radar system. The main advantage of using the satellite navigation signals as signals of opportunity is that they are ubiquitously available, therefore providing a continuous and global coverage of the sky. The low transmit power and the associated weak signal reflections remain however one of the major challenges.&nbsp;</p><p>Your research focus is on the development of surveillance concepts to enable the detection of neighboring aircraft while using the satellite navigation signals as signals of opportunity. The use of smart signal processing techniques in conjunction with artificial intelligence methods is needed to overcome the low power limitations and ensure a successful detection of neighboring aircraft.</p><p>We expect and highly encourage that you utilize your research work at DLR to pursue earning a PhD degree.</p><p><i>This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.

Research topics cover areas from atmospheric (optical) turbulence and compensation of its influence to development of optical communications systems for the Ground as well as for the space segment. To do that, we cover all areas from the theory through simulation to the laboratory and channel measurements during experimental demonstrations.<br/>The development of such systems is highly complex: for instance, the optical signals travelling through the atmospheric channel are extremely distorted. This prevents reliable communications links that require pointing precision of 1 millionth of a degree. Furthermore, the very high datarate requirements pose extreme challenge for space systems that need to not only accommodate large volumes and weight, but also increase the energy consumption of the payloads. Hence, photonic integration and an efficient signal processing as well as an efficient routing, each assuming corresponding algorithms are required in order to minimize the SWaP of the space segment. The research team is developing in this manner the next generation of communication systems for satellite communications. In your future tasks, you will focus on the technology development for very high throughput satellite optical communications systems in a range of Tbps. This includes system concepts as well as on-board signal processing assuming operational requirements in the context of the mission. You will develop prototypes using methods of model-based system engineering, take charge in the planning and leading of measurement campaigns and space qualification nationally and internationally.</p><p>We offer you a pleasant working environment in a core research and development area of our Institute, modern facilities and equipment and an opportunity to work with national and international partners on the research projects. You will work in an international team and develop pioneering results.

With approximately 1,300 employees our key mission is to secure a profound understanding of the systems and processes of solid Earth, to develop strategies and options for action in addressing global change and its impacts on a regional level, to understand natural hazards and to minimize associated risks, to ensure the sustainable provision of energy and raw materials for a high-tech society and to evaluate the influence of human activity on system Earth. As a partner in Geo.X, the GFZ has access to an excellent network of other geoscience institutions in Potsdam and Berlin. This largest regional concentration of geoscientific competence in Europe offers first-class cooperation and development opportunities.&nbsp;For Section 4.7, Earth Surface Process Modelling (Department 4, “Geosystems”), we are looking for a: <h3>Reference Number 6131</h3> <p>The evolution of landscapes containing carbonate rocks is arduous to accurately simulate with most landscape evolution models. A significant amount of water is routed in the subsurface and this breaks down the common, and fundamental, assumption that drainage area is a predictable proxy for river discharge. As a result, the effective watersheds at the land and groundwater surfaces can differ and the geometry of surface catchments cannot inform landscape evolution alone.</p> <p>We are looking to hiring a postdoctoral research scientist to study the role of subsurface water flow in landscape evolution at timescales of ca. 10 kyr to several Myrs. The specific research targets are open but could be the ways groundwater can promote or hinder river capture; the effect of lithologies of variable permeability for relief evolution; the role of subsurface flow in stabilizing closed basins in mountains; or the effect of non-uniform permeability in three-dimensionally resolved bedrock. The researcher would be tasked with the development or adaptation of a groundwater model and its integration in a landscape evolution framework (CHONK, Gailleton et al., in prep.). The exact objectives of the project will be defined together with the successful candidate. Depending on their skills and interests, the work could focus more on numerical development and improvement of models, or more on more fundamental hydrogeological work necessary for the integration of groundwater and surface process models.</p><p>We also welcome and support the development of outreach activities using numerical models of landscape evolution as part of the postdoctoral project if the successful candidate is interested.</p><p>The successful candidate should have the vision and ability to participate in collaborative and interdisciplinary research activities and discussions within our research group and with local and international collaborators. The main collaborators will be Luca Malatesta (group leader at GFZ) and Boris Gailleton (postdoc at U. Rennes).&nbsp;Researchers in the Earth Surface Process Modelling section work on a broad range of themes and come from widely different backgrounds.

In contrast to the currently commercially used techniques, the focus of the institute's research is on ensuring the reliability and integrity of the determined position information. The idea is that fully autonomous flying in urban environments is only possible if it is proven that visual navigation is safe within the framework of certifications.</p><p>To achieve the goal, we analyze the effects of different types of measurement errors and how they propagate statistically through the different processing stages.

However, the requirement as well as the environment in urban vertiports is quite different from the protected deployment area for GBAS at airports. For example, the deployment site should be more compact and flexible in cities. In addition, due to size and cost constraints, the scale and quality of sensors and antennas applied may not be as high as for conventional aviation applications. The accuracy requirement for UAM applications is higher compared to classical aeronautical applications, so GNSS position determination using carrier phase measurements may be required. However, ensuring the integrity of carrier-phase-based positioning is a major challenge.

Space weather not only affects the functionality and orbital data of satellites, but also the propagation of radio waves, which is used for terrestrial and satellite communications as well as in satellite navigation. Given the ever-increasing dependence of society on the accuracy, availability, and reliability of satellite-based radio systems, preventive measures are needed to protect human lives and technical systems from the effects of space weather. Observation and modeling of the state of the ionosphere, which are critical components of these measures, have been conducted at DLR's Neustrelitz site for many years. Predicting the state of the ionosphere is a major challenge because it is based on complex interactions between the thermosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere, which must be observed and scientifically studied and described using modern methods.</p><p>For this purpose, we at DLR are developing state-of-the-art remote sensing instruments, including optical Fabry-Perot interferometers (FPI) and lidars (optical radars) to study winds and temperatures in the Earth's upper atmosphere (90-700 km altitude).

Special emphasis will be placed on the development of mathematical retrieval techniques to improve primarily the analysis of FPI observations, but also that of EISCAT and the lidar observations.</p><p>The analysis of remote sensing observations is an ill-posed inverse problem. This means that the observed data can correspond to very different physical objects.

A further focus is given by the exploitation of such interlinked data from various sources. An ever-growing amount of heterogeneous data increasingly poses significant challenges to researches when trying to identify and reuse existing data for new projects. Based on the FAIR-criteria and domain-specific knowledge graphs we want to develop new solutions to cope with this data deluge and to help researchers of all domains access previously hidden treasures.&nbsp;The position holder will develop innovative methods and approaches allowing experts to maintain and extend domain-specific knowledge graphs without requiring extensive support by data engineers. On the one hand, the results have to provide intuitive interfaces for domain experts. These experts often do not have prior experience with knowledge modelling but should still be able to independently adjust the knowledge graphs to new developments in their respective domains (e.g., by adding new concepts or via interlinking with other knowledge graphs). On the other hand, the consistency of well-formed knowledge graphs is of utmost importance which requires extensive skills in structuring and modelling knowledge. The goal of this project is to bridge this gap, e.g., by using suitable assistance systems empowering domain experts themselves to drive the development of their knowledge graphs without losing out on the quality of those graphs. The position is embedded in multiple existing projects with various partners both within the DLR itself (e.g., from the areas of space and transport) as well as beyond (e.g., with the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy).&nbsp;Your tasks include:<ul> <li>literature survey and identification of current trends in the evolution of knowledge graphs</li> <li>identification and preparation of scientific challenges related to supporting users in knowledge graph maintenance</li> <li>development and evaluation of assistance systems (e.g., recommender or user guidance systems) to allow users without prior experience to continuously enhance existing knowledge graphs</li> <li>development of suitable criteria to measure consequences of edits (e.g., possible reasoning results and introduced inconsistencies or redundancies) efficiently in knowledge graphs and present the results in a suitable manner to users</li> <li>design and implementation of prototypes to demonstrate and evaluate the developed techniques adhering to suitable software engineering best practices (e.g., versioning and test-driven-development)</li> <li>identification and addressing new challenges arising from discussion with experts of various domains&nbsp;</li> <li>publication of research result and presentations at national and international conference</li></ul><p><i>This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.

The new global monitoring team should foster the next level of global Earth Observation data, tools and products (incl. calibration and validation) from, i.e. hyperspectral, LIDAR, or RADAR time series data (i.e. next generation Sentinels). You will ensure the section continues to evolve into an attractive and innovative environment for a diverse group of people and ideas. You strengthen the profile of the group in national and international networks, and for generating impact both within and outside academia; including a small role in student supervision and university-level education.

Both wireless and wired communication systems continue to approach technological limits. For example, today's mobile communications technology is already operating the available spectrum very close to its capacity limit – and the situation is similar with fiber-optic communication systems. In this context, KIT/IPQ is conducting research on potentially game-changing technologies such as data transmission at carrier frequencies in the (sub-)THz range and the utilization of multipath propagation in optical communications combined with efficient digital multiple-input multiple-output signal processing. This research will make it possible to significantly increase the data rates in future 6G mobile networks.

Meanwhile, you will develop a holistic understanding of the underlying system concepts and, on this basis, work out concepts for optimized transmit and receive structures. These structures, among other things, make use of the possibilities of digital signal processing and coding. At the same time, you will delve into related sub-aspects such as the development of ultra-compact 3D-printed spatial multiplexers for coherent fiber-optic systems or the design and implementation of novel digital signal processing methods on FPGAs.

A class of these structures, e.g., large heritage structures, is characterized by a high uncertainty level for degradation performance due to limited structural-aging data. The level of knowledge can be increased by measuring the actual structural properties by ambient vibration testing (AVT). The structural dynamic response from AVT is then utilized for updating numerical degradation models that can better identify the ongoing aging mechanism and the remaining useful life prior to interventions or damages. Recently, laser Doppler vibrometry (LDV) has been widely utilized for conducting AVT for large structures, e.g., towers and large bridges, thanks to its superior sensitivity and accessibility.</p><p>This project aimed to improve the structural dynamics characterization of large structures by exploring a new measurement setup. A drone carries a deflectable mirror to direct the LVD beam to different measuring points of the structure to be examined. As part of your work, you will implement and test concepts for high-precision positioning of the laser beam using the positionable mirror, as well as for processing the measurement signals obtained in order to be able to draw conclusions about possible damage to the structure. The aim of your work is further academic qualification in the form of a doctorate. The position is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).</p><p>In our department you will be part of an innovative and dynamic team. We give your efforts for personal and scientific development the necessary space and actively support you.

Max Delbrück, a Berlin native, was a Nobel laureate and one of the founders of molecular biology. At the MDC’s locations in Berlin-Buch and Mitte, researchers from some 60 countries analyze the human system – investigating the biological foundations of life from its most elementary building blocks to systems-wide mechanisms. By understanding what regulates or disrupts the dynamic equilibrium in a cell, an organ, or the entire body, we can prevent diseases, diagnose them earlier, and stop their progression with tailored therapies. Patients should benefit as soon as possible from basic research discoveries. The MDC therefore supports spin-off creation and participates in collaborative networks. It works in close partnership with Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin in the jointly run Experimental and Clinical Research Center (ECRC), the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) at Charité, and the German Center for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK). Founded in 1992, the MDC today employs 1,600 people and is funded 90 percent by the German federal government and 10 percent by the State of Berlin.<br/><br/>The Gouti lab seeks to understand the mechanisms that regulate the development of the human neuromuscular system and the molecular mechanisms that lead to neuromuscular diseases. To address these questions, we are constantly developing advanced 2D and 3D organoid technologies from human pluripotent stem cells to generate precise position specific in vitro models. During embryonic development spinal cord motor neurons are generated with high precision along the anterior-posterior (AP) axis and establish connections with skeletal muscles to control movement. Our lab has recently pioneered the generation of human neuromuscular organoids (NMOs) from pluripotent stem cell derived neuromesodermal progenitor (NMP) cells, which are the building blocks of the posterior neuromuscular system. The generation of NMOs has opened up new opportunities for the study and treatment of neuromuscular diseases, due to its great advantage of simultaneously generating spinal cord neurons and skeletal muscle cells that self-organise to form functional neuromuscular junctions in the "dish". <br/><br/>We are looking for highly motivated, talented postdoctoral fellows to work on the development of novel organoid technologies that will enhance our understanding of human neuromuscular system development and disease. <br/><br/>Job Description:<br/>A number of research projects are currently available which are summarized below:<br/><ul><li>Generation of Position Specific (GPS) organoids representing distinct spinal cord segments along the rostro-caudal axis with a focus on the identification of molecular mechanisms that regulate cell fate decisions in humans. </li><li> Largescale production of human neuromuscular organoids and development of a novel platform for drug screening and personalized medicine. </li><li> Generation and study of human corticospinal tracts in 3D through the fusion of human cerebral and neuromuscular organoids.</li></ul><br/><br/>Requirements:<br/>Applicants should have a solid experimental background in at least one of the following topics: stem cells, developmental biology, organoid technologies, tissue engineering, optogenetics and computational biology with a focus on the analysis of large-scale omics and imaging data.

Then you are exactly right with us!&nbsp;Producing green hydrogen constitutes one major step towards a carbon-neutral economy and society. Several solar thermal-based approaches can contribute to green hydrogen production in our world's sunbelt. Among them, the two-step thermochemical redox cycle and the membrane technology offer reaction paths to split water with theoretical high efficiencies. In the two-step thermochemical redox cycle, a metal oxide is oxidized by water in the first step, thereby producing hydrogen. In the second step, the oxidized metal oxide is reduced at high temperatures, making it ready for water splitting again. In contrast, membrane technology can produce hydrogen continuously by using a constant oxygen concentration gradient across a membrane as the driving force for water splitting. Both hydrogen production processes draw significant benefit from a low oxygen concentration in certain reactor compartments or during certain reaction steps.&nbsp;A novel emerging technology to efficiently achieve low oxygen partial pressures is the thermochemical oxygen pump. This pump applies another redox cycle where the metal oxide firstly takes up oxygen at low partial pressures by oxidation and secondly releases the captured oxygen again at elevated pressures by increasing the temperature. Thus, it can be operated solely on solar heat and requires no electrical energy input, which facilitates its coupling to a solar thermal-based hydrogen production.&nbsp;Your tasks during the PhD are:<ul> <li>Design and construct a thermochemical oxygen pump for semi-continuous operation.</li> <li>Perform experiments with the thermochemical oxygen pump as a stand-alone device and in combination with a reactor setup for hydrogen production.</li> <li>Numerical investigation of guiding principles for the transport of oxygen from the connected reactor setup to the thermochemical oxygen pump.</li> <li>Energetical optimization and determination of the pumping potential.</li></ul>DLR offers you the opportunity to advance your education by participating in extended trainings of the DLR Graduate Program. Flexible working hours allow you to balance work and family life, and we give you the freedom you need to fulfill your tasks.&nbsp;You will be part of an interdisciplinary and international team of engineers, physicists, chemists and material scientists.

The candidate will be part of an inter-disciplinary, multi-national team consisting of physicists, chemists, chemical, mechanical and materials engineers; will also have access to state-of-the-art chemical laboratories as well as a wide infrastructure of analytical and structure characterisation instrumentation available at DLR’s facility at Cologne, Porz-Wahn.</p><p>In the wider environmental, societal and political framework of a carbon-neutral future energy mix, the aim of the project is to demonstrate the proof-of-principle feasibility of the use of metal particles, iron in particular, as an effective energy carrier and means of storing and recovering at will renewable energy. The idea is to employ renewable (e.g. solar or wind) energy in order to reduce thermochemically iron oxide particles to iron metal ones and oxygen; the iron particles can then be stored, transported and oxidized at will to recover the energy stored therein during reduction, as the exothermic combustion reaction’s enthalpy without any carbon dioxide generation. In this second step the particles are re-converted to the original oxide ones, that can be hence reused in a cyclic reduction-oxidation process scheme. In this general context iron particles can be used as an energy carrier between regions where renewable-energy generation is favored and where energy is needed, as well as in the process of retrofitting existing lignite-fired power plants.<br/>Pure thermal-only reduction of such iron oxide particles to iron metal and oxygen requires impractically high temperatures; thus, a thermochemical process should be implemented instead, utilizing chemical “reducing” species like hydrogen synthesized by e.g. renewable-energy-powered electrolysis or carbon-containing yet carbon-neutral reduction media like biogas or synthetic green methane, synthesized via renewable pathways from water and (captured) carbon dioxide.</p><p>In this context and perspective, the main objectives and tasks of the Ph.D. dissertation are to:</p><ul> <li>study the thermochemical reduction of iron oxide particles in a Thermogravimetric Analyzer/Differential Scanning Calorimeter (TGA/DSC) apparatus test rig coupled with necessary monitoring, control and gas effluent analytic systems (e.g. mass-spectrometer, gas analyzers, oxygen sensors, etc.) as a function of temperature, reducing gas type -hydrogen or methane - as well as solid particles’ physicochemical properties (e.g. particle size, specific surface area, etc.)</li> <li>characterize the various iron powders to be used before and after multi-step cyclic reduction, via a variety of techniques like particle size distribution analysis, Scanning and Transition Electron Microscopy, specific surface area, pore size distribution, phase composition etc. to identify any adverse physicochemical effects on their long-term cyclic performance</li> <li>correlate the reduction reaction characteristics with the particles’ physicochemical properties, formulate plausible reaction models, extract reliable reaction kinetics, clarify the reaction mechanisms and controlling steps and compare the models and their results to relevant literature data</li> <li>devise reliable and reproducible approaches for handling of the iron particles produced before their subsequent oxidation in order to avoid undesired spontaneous ignition phenomena upon exposure to ambient air, by relevant techniques such as e.g. “surface passivation” via the controlled formation of an oxide layer on their external surface</li> <li>overall, develop “standardized” procedures and protocols in order to reproducibly obtain metallic iron particles with specific characteristics as required for their eventual targeted subsequent oxidation (combustion) step</li></ul><p><i>This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers.
