Diplom & Master


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Job description:Master thesis: Zooplankton adaptation to climate change

Background
In the division "Biosciences", section “Shelf Seas Systems Ecology” (Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) we are looking for a Master student (Biology/Ecology/Physiology). Zooplankton adaptation to climate change Global change places organisms under enormous pressure by radically changing the environment in which they live. Those shifts in abiotic conditions induce physiological acclimatization and genetic adaptations in populations which dampens the influence of new environmental settings on population dynamics and allows species to persist.

Tasks
This project will therefore investigate the effects of global change on zooplankton population dynamics and the associated evolutionary responses. We hypothesise that (1) with increasing strength of abiotic changes the selective pressure will also increase which could in turn decrease the genetic diversity of populations over time. We also hypothesise that (2) populations could adapt to global change which should be seen during transplant experiments in the performance of different selection lines.
This project will therefore provide information on the consequences of global change for zooplankton demographic features, grazing pressure, and nutrient recycling, all of which largely influence community interactions and ecosystem functioning.

Diplom & Master


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Job description:Master thesis: How will global changes impact planktonic food webs?

Background
In the division "Biosciences", section “Shelf Seas Systems Ecology” (Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) we are looking for a Master student (Biology/Ecology/Physiology).

How will global changes impact planktonic food webs?

Global change places organisms under enormous pressure by radically changing the environment in which they live. Despite this threat, our understanding of the consequences of global change is incomplete since most studies to date have focused on single stressors.

Tasks
This project will realistically assess the impact of simultaneous changes in temperature, pH, nutrients, and salinity on planktonic organisms and will provide a robust evaluation of how planktonic organisms are and will be affected by abiotic changes. To do so, the candidate will study the interactions between phytoplankton, microzooplankton, and mesozooplankton by conducting multifactorial laboratory experiments.

Job description:Master thesis: Antarctic marine sediment chronologies

Background
Research division: Marine Geochemistry/ Marine Geology

As part of the INSPIRES-funded project "Past Antarctic sea ice - ice shelf interactions", we are looking for a Masters student to work on sediment cores collected in the Weddell Sea, Antarctica.

The goal of the project is to establish robust age models for marine sediment cores by the application of radiometric methods (230Thex, 231Paex/230Thex). These chronologies are the base for paleoenvironmental reconstructions focusing on changes in sea ice coverage and how they relate to glacial-interglacial climate variability.
This is a geochemical project, performed mostly in a state-of-the-art specialized lab environment. It will require the handling of hazardous substances. Training will be provided.

Tasks
  • Sample preparation for geochemical analysis
  • Performing microwave assisted acid digestions
  • Separation and measurement of various natural radioactive isotopes and elements in marine sediments (SF-ICP-MS and ICP-OES)


Requirements
  • Basic experience in lab work
  • Interest in quantitative aspects of physics, chemistry, geology and biology
  • Ability and willingness to handle hazardous substances, while reliably following instructions and safety measures
  • willingness to work in an interdisciplinary team

Diplom & Master


Job description:Master of Science Project "Impact of heatwaves on microbial communities"

Background
Microbial communities in summer are more balanced and kept in check by grazers compared to spring bloom microbial communities. Blooms, if they occur, are rather rare and short lived. How this balance is changing with progressing climate change, and especially with heatwaves which are gaining in intensity and frequency is not yet know. To tackle this key scientific challenge, we compare ambient in situ conditions with a “heat wave” scenario mimicking occasionally occurring anomalous heat events in the North Sea. Within this Master thesis the candidate will focus on the influence of grazing on the microbial community composition. Is there a selective grazing on specific bacterial groups? Does the grazing preference shift to different prey bacteria under the influence of a heatwave?


Tasks
To answer these questions, samples will be analyzed by Fluorescence-In-Situ-Hybridization and automated counting at the Max-Planck-Institute (Bremen), and combined to sequencing and taxonomic data gained at the Alfred-Wegener-Institute.

Requirements
  • You should be enrolled at a University in a cursus of microbiology, or aquatic biology/ecology

Background: The SideStream Project aims to promote a reduction of waste in agriculture and aquaculture; these are recycled in the SIDESTREAM project as residual materials in the sense of a circular economy. To this end, it is to be examined which organisms are suitable for using residual flows from agriculture and aquaculture and thereby valuable components for other branches of industry e.g., fish feeds.

Tasks
During your time as a student, you will participate in the following tasks:
  • assistance in carrying out feeding experiments in recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) with the aim of investigating the effectiveness of different Astaxanthin sources and doses on rainbow trout (Oncorhynhuss mykiss)
  • participating in sampling campaigns to determine growth performance and dissection of fish for further laboratory analyses
  • execution, recording and evaluation of data from feeding experiments


Requirements
  • previous experience with aquaculture and RAS;
  • experienced lab worker;
  • team worker
  • good cooperation and communication skills
  • good organisation and documentation skills
  • good in English and German language

Diplom & Master


Job description:MSc Thesis on Beryllium isotopes in the Arctic Ocean: Influence of galactic cosmic rays, river-input and advection

Background
The cosmogenic radionuclide Beryllium-10 (10Be) is produced in the atmosphere at varying rates, which depend on the flux of galactic cosmic rays. Hence, paleo-records of 10Be provide a tool to reconstruct variations in the galactic cosmic ray flux, which in turn holds information about the geomagnetic field and solar activity. These records also allow linking different climate archives to each other by this “cosmic footprint” providing a novel means to improve the chronologies of marine sediements. However, in order to achieve this, the different sources and fluxes of the cosmogenic 10Be and terrestrial 9Be must be understood.
This thesis is aimed at investigating the mixing between Beryllium isotopes supplied by rivers, meteoric fallout, and advection of water masses from the open ocean. The study will be focussed on the high Arctic (e.g., Russian Arctic, Laptev Sea) and characterize the 10Be/9Be of surface sediment samples along a transect as well as down-core.

Tasks
  • Chemical extraction and purification of Beryllium from sediments
  • Measurement of stable Beryllium using ICP-OES
  • Interpretation of results using simple mixing models
  • Comparison to other geochemical data from the area
  • Comparison to other cosmogenic radionuclide records from ice cores and tree-rings


Requirements
  • Good to very good BSc-Thesis (Environmental Science, Geology, Geography, or similar)
  • Good knowledge of geochemistry
  • Laboratory experience
  • Data analysis skills
  • Good English skills
  • Commitment

PHD Thesis


Job description:

Your Job:

Gravitational waves from colliding black holes, exploding stars or maybe from dark ages of the universe tell us about the evolution of our cosmos. Following the Nobel Prize in physics of 2017, we are now planning the next generation of even more sensitive observations. The so-called "Einstein-Telescope" (ET) is European`s future in gravitational wave detection. It might be built in the Euregio. For more information, see www.einsteintelescope.nl or www.et-gw.eu

Gravitational waves are detected by laser interferometers based on the concept of the Michelson Interferometer. The ET will include six of those interferometers with arm lengths of 10 km each in an underground, triangular configuration. To avoid interaction of the laser beams with air or any residual gas the laser beams will travel in ultrahigh vacuum tubes (UHV) with a diameter of approximately 1 m. In total, there will be 120 km of those tubes. It will be by far the largest UHV system ever built. You will work on the design of the vacuum system.

Your main topics will be:

  • General layout of vacuum system; simulation of the vacuum conditions; estimate of the pumping capacities
  • Engineering of the pumping stations, including several types of pumps, gauges, values, etc.
  • Layout of an emergency shut-off for different sections of the system, including the design and suitable protection valves; testing of prototypes of these values
  • Development of strategies for leakage detection, -repair and corrosion detection
  • Development of a procedure for bake-out the system; heat management during bake-out in the tunnels; dimensioning of the insulation to stabilize the vacuum tube temperature
  • Project planning including time and cost estimation
  • Cooperation with groups and companies working on the production and installation process of the vacuum pipes and their frames



Most of your work will be at ZEA-1 in close collaboration with the groups involved in the development of the ET at RWTH Aachen University.

Your Profile:

  • Successfully completed technical or scientific university studies (Master) in the field of general mechanical engineering, process engineering or experimental physics
  • Very good knowledge of vacuum technology, especially in materials science for UHV suitable materials
  • Very good knowledge in the field of design engineering

  • Interest in experimental work, the design and construction of test systems and the supervision of test runs
  • High degree of initiative and ability to work in an international team
  • Ability for collaborative work, interdisciplinary and cross-topical thinking
  • Very good communication skills in English, spoken and written
  • Knowledge of German is an advantage

Our Offer:

We work on the very latest issues that impact our society and are offering you the chance to actively help in shaping the change! We offer ideal conditions for you to complete your doctoral degree:

  • A highly motivated working group as well as an international and interdisciplinary working environment at one of Europe’s largest research establishments
  • Outstanding scientific and technical infrastructure
  • Opportunity to participate in (international) conferences and project meetings
  • Continuous scientific mentoring by your scientific advisor
  • Supervision of your dissertation by the ZEA-1 Institute Director, Professor Natour, chair at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University

For this purpose, we plan to operate three Doppler wind lidars (DWL) and a microwave radiometer (MWR) at the site. Measurements with these instruments allow to capture the state of the flow field in and around the wind farm as well as the atmospheric stratification throughout the boundary layer. The wind farm is well suited for investigations of the interaction of wind turbines with undisturbed atmospheric flow as well as the influence of wind turbine wakes on loads and efficiency of downstream turbines. One DWL will initially be installed on the nacelle of a turbine.

The PostDoc shall operate the instruments in the field and develop new measurement strategies to characterize the average flow field and turbulence in the wind farm. A close cooperation and synthesis with numerical models up to the point of data assimilation is envisioned for the future. The PostDoc is encouraged to develop new project ideas and contribute actively to the scientific community.

Subtasks of the work:

  • analysis of existing datasets that were collected at the research wind farm site prior to wind turbine installation
  • installation, operation and maintenance of measurement equipment at the site (i.e. three DWL and one MWR)
  • validation of existing measurement strategies that were developed for wind turbine wake measurements and turbulence retrievals at the wind farm
  • development and validation of nacelle-based long-range DWL measurements
  • preparation of data for comparison with numerical models and data assimilation
  • mesoscale simulations can be included in the work

Laborkräfte,Other


Job description:

The aim of the Institute of Quantum Technologies in Ulm is to develop precision instruments for space applications based on quantum technologies and to bring them to prototype maturity in close cooperation with industry. Together with the Institute for Satellite Geodesy and Inertial Sensing in Hannover and the Galileo Competence Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, the institute in Ulm plays a pioneering role in these fields of research and application.

Within the institute, the quantum engineering department engages in development of applicable quantum technologies for space missions as well as terrestrial areas. This involves design, simulation, realization and testing of prototype systems. A major goal is their miniaturization especially under the severe constraints and harsh conditions that space missions are facing. To achieve this, it is necessary to master individual manufacturing processes and methods, such as assembly and integration of systems containing quantum optical, cryogenic, or vacuum technologies.

Investigations into the foundations of quantum mechanics and their link to gravity and general relativity require sensitive quantum experiments. To provide ultimate insight, the realization of experiments in space will sooner or later become a necessity. Quantum technologies and among them quantum memories are providing novel approaches to reach conclusive experimental results. A better operational understanding of quantum technologies in space is furthermore crucial for large scale technological development of satellite-based quantum-communications networks.

Our department is therefore looking into the development of quantum memories. As a first step, we are building an optical quantum memory based on rare-earth-ion-doped crystals (REID). This setup will serve as a platform to investigate applications and possible strategies for miniaturization. To support this effort, we highly benefit from our involvement in project BECCAL, which will offer the capability to operate a quantum memory on the International Space Station.

It is possible to create a master’s thesis as part of this job.

Your Task

  • You are part of a team which investigates the requirements for deployment of quantum memories in space.
  • You will perform theoretical investigations and simulations of quantum-memory-assisted science experiments in space.
  • You will provide a feasibility study geared towards future experiment design and technological development.

Receive your master’s degree in this innovative area. Be part of our team and lay the foundation for future development of quantum technologies.

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other


Job description:

The DLR Institute of Atmospheric Physics studies the physics and chemistry of the global atmosphere from the ground to the upper edge of the middle atmosphere at an altitude of about 120 km. As an institute of the German Aerospace Center, the institute addresses questions regarding the atmosphere relevant to DLR in the HGF programs of Aeronautics, Space, Transport and Energy. To this end, the institute covers the entire spectrum of methods ranging from sensor development, observations on different spatial scales (local to global), analysis, theory to numerical modeling including future projections.

The Earth System Model Evaluation and Analysis Department develops innovative methods to improve Earth system models and their evaluation with observations with the aim to better understand and project climate change. The evaluation and ensemble analysis of Earth system models is essential to continuously improve the models and a prerequisite for reliable climate projections of the 21st century, which are used in climate policy guidelines. In order to improve the routine and comprehensive evaluation of climate models, the department is leading the development of the Earth System Model Evaluation Tool (ESMValTool). A major focus of the department is the development and application of machine learning (ML) methods to improve the understanding and modeling of the Earth system.
Quantum computers are one of the ground-breaking novel technologies of the 21st century. They will make it possible to perform calculations and simulations that conventional computers would need a prohibitive amount of time for. With the Quantum Computing Initiative, DLR has begun a concerted effort to build quantum computers for Europe and unlock their potential for pioneering applications.

Building on work that is done in the European Research Council (ERC) Synergy Grant on „Understanding and Modelling the Earth System with Machine Learning (USMILE, www.usmile-erc.eu/)“, a new project on “Improving Climate Models with Quantum Machine Learning for Robust Technology Assessments and Mitigation (KLIM-QML)” within the Earth System Model Evaluation and Analysis Department will develop a prototype for a quantum machine learning (QML) based climate model where physical sub-grid scale parametrizations are replaced with QML approaches. The unique opportunities that quantum computing offers are explored to help make climate models and their development process better and faster. This work will be done in close collaboration with industry partners.

In this position, you will first develop a concept to use existing hybrid quantum/conventional machine learning algorithms to improve parameterizations of the general atmospheric circulation model ICOsahedral Nonhydrostatic (ICON). As a next step, you will implement these algorithms on quantum computers or simulators to develop quantum machine learning based parameterizations. Then, you will couple the improved parameterizations with the ICON model and evaluate the model’s performance using the ESMValTool developed at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics.

Improving global climate models using quantum machine learning techniques

  • development of parameterizations for global climate models using hybrid machine learning methods on conventional and quantum computers
  • integration of the newly developed parameterizations into a global climate model for the development of ICON-QML
  • performing ICON-QML simulations
  • evaluation of the model with the ESMValTool
  • application to a use case
  • publication of the results
  • documentation of results and software

Developing a concept for hybrid conventional/quantum computing techniques to improve climate models

  • literature research and application to conceptualize how to improve climate models using existing hybrid computational methods (conventional/quantum computing)
  • documentation and publication of results

You will be based in Ulm or Hamburg Lockstedt.

Other,Diplom & Master,Praktikum


Job description:

At the Centre for Lightweight-Production-Technology in Stade, the department of Composite Process Technology is concerned, among other things, with highly productive fiberplacement processes for large-scale structural components. The research platform GroFi (Large Fiber Placement Plant) is a highly flexible multi-robot system for the automated production of fiber composite components on a real scale. The objective is a significant increase in both the effectiveness and the efficiency of the manufacturing process.

An important aspect for the prediction of production-related defects in the fiberplacement process is the knowledge of the adhesive force of the material to be processed to the substrate. In addition to the material used, this also depends on the process parameters applied. In a previous work, a model approach was therefore developed which depicts the relationship of the resulting adhesion force as a function of the process parameters for dry fibermaterials.

Within the scope of the present work, the elaborated model approach is to be validated by extensive tests andadapted if necessary.

You will process the following tasks:

  • familiarisation with the topic of automated fiberplacement processes
  • familiarisation with the topic of the existing model approach as well as the corresponding test procedure
  • elaboration of influencing material parameters
  • carrying out extensive tests for model validation
  • if necessary, modification of the model approach on the basis of the test results

It is possible to combine your thesis with an internship. The scope of the thesis can be adjusted if necessary.

Job description:

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have become indispensable in various research fields such as physics, chemistry and medicine. They provide a non-invasive and non-destructive method for characterizing or imaging of a wide range of samples.

Recently, Raser-MRI (a new contrast mechanism without radio frequency pulses) has been developed, allowing for inexpensive hardware, higher resolution, and imaging without external rf-excitation. However, the contrast is based on cooperative nonlinear interaction between all slices of the image.

To efficiently model and correct for image artefacts, deep learning methods could be utilized to process MRI images.

Your task: You will use deep learning techniques to map simulated and acquired free induction decay (FID) signals to (1D+2D) MRI images. Your task includes finding the most suitable architecture structure (e.g. convolutional vs fully-connected vs recurrent neural network) to correlate FIDs to 1D MRI profiles, and to implement a functioning pipeline in pytorch.

You will be part of Prof. Korvink’s research group where you can get support from members with expertise in NMR theory, methodology, hardware, and simulation.

Job description:

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has become indispensable in various fields of research such as physics, chemistry and medicine. It provides a non-invasive and non-destructive method for examining a wide range of samples, for example to find out the composition of SARS-CoV-2 at an atomic level.

A homogeneous magnetic field is essential for an accurate and precise result, but this is – among other factors – altered by the sample to be examined. The magnetic field can be adjusted by so-called "shim coils", but this procedure must, in many times, be carried out manually and requires a lot of time and experience. This process is called "shimming".

To make this work easier, various algorithms have been used that relieve humans of this task, including deep learning (DL) based methods. However, a major challenge to train those DL methods is the availability of data. Here, simulations come in handy and could be used to support data accessibility. Unfortunately, the available simulations lack properties of real hardware (like non-idealities, non-symmetric behaviour), and thus, cannot be used efficiently.

Your task: You will extend recent simulation tools to incorporate real-world properties. You either improve a custom python-based simulation, or create a Comsol simulation to mimic the physics of a real-world magnetic field.

You will be part of Prof. Korvink’s research group where you can get support from members with expertise in NMR theory, methodology, hardware, and simulation.

Job description:

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has become indispensable in various research fields such as physics, chemistry and medicine. It provides a non-invasive and non-destructive method for examining a wide range of samples, for example, to find out the composition of SARS-CoV-2 at an atomic level. 

The outcome of such NMR measurements is often a spectrum, which precisely describes the content of the examined sample. Deep learning methods are currently utilized to process the spectrum and extract features. However, the spectra are often of high dimensions, and thus, the computational demands for processing them are high. 

Luckily, spectra contain unimportant information like noise, and a small set of variables can often describe the critical features.  

Your task: You will use deep learning techniques to compress spectra into a set of descriptive features that are enough to reconstruct the spectrum from them. Specifically, autoencoders (or encoder-decoder networks) are a promising approach: The encoder compresses the input to a small latent representation, and the decoder can reconstruct the input given this latent space. Your task includes finding the most suitable autoencoder structure (e.g. VAE) to compress NMR spectra, and to implement a functioning pipeline in pytorch (or similar).

You will be part of Prof. Korvink’s research group where you can get support from members with expertise in NMR theory, methodology, hardware, and simulation.

Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

13.09.2022


Job description:

Progress in virtually all areas of physics research relies on recording and analyzing enormous amounts of data. This is equally true for the high energy physics at LHC, planned future lepton and neutrino detectors, as well as for experiments at high-intensity light sources such as the EU-XFEL or PETRA III. Recent improvements in detector instrumentation provide unprecedented detail to researchers. At the same time data rates far outpace the improvements in the performance of storage systems.  Online data reduction is crucial for the next generation of detectors.

We aim to establish a closer integration of the data acquisition workflows with cloud-enabled HPC centers. The goal of this work is to build infrastructure to push data from the detector directly into the local HPC data center and rely on the HPC resources for data processing and reduction. The rapid advances in the Ethernet technology allow sufficient readout bandwidth, but efficient data distribution methods relaying on RDMA technologies are required to utilize network capacity efficiently. One of the challenges is to design an efficient protocol to facilitate communication between DAQ hardware and data processing cluster and to simplify development of scalable data reduction modules. As a pilot project, we aim to enable deployment of extremely complex Machine Learning models which can be executed across multiple nodes and accelerated using FPGAs, GPUs, or/and custom neuro-computers. We aim to enable real-time data reduction and classification of data streams with rates in the 10 - 20 GB/s range per detector (multi-detector systems are envisaged).

The student is expected to perform a subset of the following tasks:

Benchmark high-speed communication protocols, e.g. UDP, STCP, QUIC. Research available high-throughput alternatives to the standard Linux network stack, e.g. DPDK or LibVMA.

Latest Mellanox adapters allow offloading part of packet processing into the hardware. Investigate the provided features and suggest if they can be used to further increase network throughput.

Evaluate available RDMA extensions to deliver data directly to the computation accelerators like FPGAs or GPUs, e.g. RoCE or iWARP.

Design an application layer protocol integrating Ethernet-connected detectors with data-processing clusters. The protocol should include control channel for setting and reading detector parameters (registers) and high-speed data streaming channel.

Evaluate different methods to scale data flow across multiple cluster nodes. Assess scalability potential, fault tolerance, costs and simplicity of implementation.

Job description:

Computed Tomography and Laminography are indispensable tools for studying inner structures in materials and biological spices. New instruments relaying on different types of energy-matter interaction principles, technological advances in instrumentation and detection technologies open a way for increasing number of new applications. Many of these applications, however, pose a challenge for a high quality reconstruction due to low signal-to-noise ratio, limited or non-standard acquisition trajectory, etc. Traditional reconstruction algorithms are ill suited for the low-dose, limited angle, or spectral tomography. Instead regularized iterative reconstruction techniques are recommended to improve reconstruction quality through incorporation of available prior information. While a proof-of-concept has been already established in mathematical community, there are significant challenges in adapting them for a wider use in labs and research facilities. One of the main aspects is extremely high requirements in terms of memory consumption and computing power.

There is an ongoing international effort to build a modular reconstruction framework providing an extensive library of regularization techniques and also practically viable for cutting-edge scientific and industrial applications where conventional algorithms fail. You will join the project and will contribute your numerical and computing skills to optimize the performance of reconstruction and regularization pipelines. The project is performed as a collaboration between the University of Manchester (UK), STFC (UK), DTU (Denmark) and KIT.

We can offer multiple tasks widely varying in terms of complexity and focus. The available options range from simple integration and benchmarking tasks (offered as internship only) to a more complex projects like careful optimization of selected regularization algorithms for recent hardware architectures. The tomographic reconstruction is a data-intensive task and the performance is heavily dependent on efficient usage of processor caches. We are interested in both fine-tuning of traditional multi-threaded CPU codes and also in leveraging the massively parallel architectures like GPUs and FPGAs. To reduce memory consumption, mixed-precision computations are envisaged. The actual task within project will be offered during the interview depending on applicant skills and interests.

Job description:

High-speed streaming cameras are used in an increasing number of industrial and scientific applications. Real-time imaging here is of indisputable value as it opens the way for interactive monitoring, image[1]based control scenarios, and online data reduction. However, processing large streams of data is a challenging task requiring orchestration of an efficient data flow and implementation of efficient parallel algorithms suitable for modern hardware architectures. In this project, you will build an online data acquisition and image processing system for high-throughput chemical screening using advanced spectroscopic methods. Real-time data processing will enable identification of high-value targets for further analysis, thereby accelerating scientific discovery over traditional methods. Specifically, a high-speed array sensor will collect spectroscopic data at speeds exceeding 10,000 frames per second at data streams of up to 8 GB/s.

Job description:

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) has the goal to be able to describe the complete system of a gas turbine in aviation and power generation as a virtual engine using numerical methods. At the Institute of Propulsion Technology, we pursue this goal in close collaboration with the recently founded Institute of Test and Simulation for Gas Turbines.

A key ingredient is the highly accurate description of the flow within the gas turbine. For this purpose, the department of Numerical Methods of the Institute of Propulsion Technology has been developing the DLR CFD solver for turbomachinery flows TRACE since 1989. TRACE is applied in research as well as in the design process at our industry partners (MTU Aero Engines, Siemens Energy). Besides the routinely applied RANS methods, which rely on a statistical modelling of turbulence, we intensively study the development of methods which resolve a great part of the turbulent scales (LES). We apply both finite volume (FV) and discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods. Both methods enable us to investigate complex flows in turbomachinery in great detail and gain insights for physical modelling, amongst others using methods of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

We are looking for a highly motivated team member to develop and optimise discontinuous Galerkin methods in TRACE for massively parallel computations with respect to node-level performance, scalability and flexibility. You will investigate the new methods in pioneering applications and present your work to the international research community at both national and international conferences as well as in scientific journals. You will become a part of the realization of a numerical test rig for compressor and turbine cascades and its application to modern blade profile families. You will work in a dynamic, interdisciplinary team with more than 20 scientists, which comprehensively deals with the problem of turbomachinery flow simulations. On the basis of modern software engineering methods, you will use your fluid mechanics and software development expertise to bring in your own ideas.

If you would like to work at the interface between fluid mechanics and software development and want to become a member of our team, we are looking forward to your convincing application.

Job description:

3D printing of carbon materials enables fabrication of 3D complex architectures of carbon materials, which have shown great promise in a variety of applications starting from energy materials to tissue engineering scaffolds. The fabrication process includes 3D designs using CAD modelling, followed by 3D printing a precursor materials and high-temperature carbonization. A significant shrinkage of the geometry occurs during carbonization of the 3D printed precursor. The shrinkage phenomenon often imparts catastrophic impact on the geometry, particularly for large-scale structures. Here, we aim to understand the shrinkage phenomenon of large-scale 3D printed geometries and incorporate the shrinkage artifacts in the design so that the carbonization process self-corrects the design during shrinkage.

The specific tasks within the project will be:

  • CAD modelling of 3D architectures,
  • 3D printing of precursor architectures using stereolithography;
  • carbonization of 3D printed structures; and
  • characterization of the carbonized parts for material properties.

Job description:

The aim of the Institute of Quantum Technologies in Ulm is to develop precision instruments for space applications based on quantum technologies and to bring them to prototype maturity in close cooperation with industry. Together with the Institute for Satellite Geodesy and Inertial Sensing in Hannover and the Galileo Competence Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, the institute in Ulm plays a pioneering role in these fields of research and application.

Within the institute, the quantum engineering department engages in development of applicable quantum technologies for space missions as well as terrestrial areas. This involves design, simulation, realization and testing of prototype systems. A major goal is their miniaturization especially under the severe constraints and harsh conditions that space missions are facing. To achieve this, it is necessary to master individual manufacturing processes and methods, such as assembly and integration of systems containing quantum optical, cryogenic or vacuum technologies.

Quantum memories for fundamental science in space

Investigations into the foundations of quantum mechanics and their link to gravity and general relativity require sensitive quantum experiments. To provide ultimate insight, the realization of experiments in space will sooner or later become a necessity. Quantum technologies and among them quantum memories are providing novel approaches to reach conclusive experimental results. A better operational understanding of quantum technologies in space is furthermore crucial for large-scale technological development of satellite-based quantum-communications networks.

Our department is therefore looking into the development of quantum memories. As a first step, we are building an optical quantum memory based on rare-earth-ion-doped crystals (REID). This setup will serve as a platform to investigate applications and possible strategies for miniaturization. To support this effort, we highly benefit from our involvement in project BECCAL, which will offer the capability to operate a quantum memory on the International Space Station.

Your tasks:

  • You are part of a team which investigates the requirements for deployment of quantum memories in space.
  • You will build quantum optical experiments for characterization of quantum memories.
  • You will implement memory protocols with relevance for scientific applications and fundamental research in space.
  • Based on your results, you will develop further experiments in order to achieve necessary miniaturization of quantum memories for space flight or terrestrial field applications.

Receive your doctorate in this innovative area. Be part of our team and lay the foundation for future development of quantum technologies.

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other


Job description:

The research group “Data access and processing” develops innovative methods for storing, managing, and processing large volumes of multi-dimensional data (e.g., from Earth Observation) in distributed IT infrastructures. In particular the storage, management, and analysis of high-resolution time series data from the DLR areas space, aeronautics, transportation, and energy poses huge challenges to database management systems with respect to the expected data volume and velocity. For this, novel database management solutions have to be developed, which can store and process large volumes of time series data (e.g., coming from a large number of sensors). The solution should consider a scalable system infrastructure as well as modern data storage hardware (e.g., SSDs and persistent memory).

The position holder will develop methods and tools for efficiently storing, managing, and analyzing time series and telemetry data from various application domains, such as robotics, connected energy systems, and satellite on-board telemetry data. The focus is on the development of concepts, which can scale to large data volumes and can be adapted to different execution environments (e.g., cloud, edge, embedded). The developed methods shall be integrated into database management systems and accompanied by modern software development processes.

We offer a challenging work and research environment where family friendliness and your healthiness are our highest priorities.

Your tasks include:

  • literature survey and identification of research trends in the area of data management and data processing on univariate and multivariate time series data
  • identification and preparation of research problems related to the management of large time series data volumes in various execution environments (e.g., cloud, edge)
  • development and evaluation of data management systems for time series data based on requirements derived from concrete use cases
  • software development for evaluation and integration of modern computer hardware (e.g., novel data storage and processor technologies) in existing time series data management systems or development of time series data management systems based on novel computer hardware technologies
  • optimization and specialization of time series data management systems to concrete use cases with the help of performance profiling tools and standardized performance benchmarks
  • design and creation of system architectures for complex time series data management systems by using modern software development processes (e.g., Scrum) and incremental adjustments of the system architecture in case of changing user requirements
  • identification and development of new application areas with time series data management challenges, which cannot be solved by existing state-of-the-art time series data management systems
  • publication and presentation of research results at national and international conferences

Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

29.09.2022


Job description:

Nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) technologies are widely used for drinking water production. RO membranes are applied for water desalination giving their ability to remove monovalent salts up to ~99%, while NF membranes are commonly used to remove micropollutants and treatment of natural waters contaminated by inorganics such as fluoride, nitrates and arsenic.

In treatment plants, NF/RO membranes are typically designed for continuous operation without considering water quality variations. However, in locations with extreme climate variability, NF/RO membranes can face radical variations in terms of hardness, salinity as well as the content of natural organic matter (NOM). Such variations can therefore affect the separation process, energy consumption and ultimately operational costs.

The aim of this project is to carry out experiments to evaluate the resilience of NF/RO membranes to remove inorganic water contaminants (e.g. fluoride, arsenic, nitrate) with varying water salinity, hardness and in presence of NOM. NF/RO separation mechanisms will be also investigated.

Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

Job description:

Biocatalysis combined with membrane filtration is a growing research area in water treatment as the water contaminants can be degraded by the enzyme while filtrating water. The design of a biocatalytic membrane able to keep the enzymatic activity of the enzyme free in solution is still an ongoing challenge. In this case, the use of biocompatible hydrogel coating to encapsulate the enzyme within the membrane is a promising strategy to improve the stability of the enzyme and keep the enzymatic activity during filtration. The aim of this project is to carry out a range of experiments to evaluate the enzymatic activity of the biocatalytic membrane, where the enzyme is entrapped in a hydrogel coating for the removal of micropollutants steroid hormones from water.

The following specific task will be performed as part of the project:

  • Literature review on the topic (biocatalytic membranes with a focus on micropollutants removal; encapsulation of enzymes within hydrogel coatings, degradation mechanism of steroid hormones by the enzyme)
  • Develop the hydrogel coating on the UF membrane and encapsulate the enzyme;
  • Perform experiments with a dead end stirred cell to evaluate the enzymatic activity of the membrane and degradation of the hormones in filtration;
  • Analyse experimental data and write/co-author a research publication (in English) if the provided results are promising

Diplom & Master


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

29.09.2022


Job description:

The consumption of drinking water contaminated with elevated levels of inorganic ions such as fluoride, nitrate and uranium is a major health concern. A low energy filtration process such as ultrafiltration (UF) would be a viable option for water treatment in remote areas, at the same time challenging as it cannot perform ion removal like nanofiltration or reverse osmosis. Composite UF membranes involving inorganic adsorbents such as zeolite would enhance the ion removal ability.

This project is a part of a DFG funded collaborative programme with KNUST, Ghana.  As the synthesis of zeolites is feasible from the locally available clay materials in Ghana, treatment of the local water using a low energy filtration route involving zeolite is more interesting.

The aim of this project is to establish the feasibility of using composite zeolite UF membranes for the removal of inorganic ion pollutants common in Ghana waters. The following specific task will be performed as a part of the project:

  • establish the fundamental principles of adsorption by zeolites
  • infiltrate the zeolite into a UF membrane
  • Perform ultrafiltration experiments with a dead end stirred cell to evaluate the performance of zeolite composite membrane for ion removal
  • Master student will have the opportunity to co-author a research publication, provided the results are promising
  • Take part in group activities, oral presentation in group meeting and writing of reports (medium of all communications and writing will be in English)

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


Job description:To automate information retrieval in complex environments, the use of multiple autonomous robotic agents - robot swarm - is of significant advantage in terms of robustness and efficiency. Instead of a single, comparatively large and expensive drone or rover platform, a swarm enables faster and more robust exploration. Robustness is achieved by being able to compensate for the failure of a single drone, as the computational, sensing and decision-making processes are distributed across multiple, typically smaller and cheaper platforms. To exploit this potential, suitable algorithms for decentralized data processing and acquisition - swarm exploration algorithms - are being developed and tested. The Swarm Exploration Research Group investigates exploration algorithms for robust monitoring and mapping applications using swarms of drones. We are considering the use of RGB and thermal infrared cameras integrated on robotic platforms. The goal of the proposed research is to develop efficient exploration algorithms based on processing of the image data collected by the agents in the swarm, to combine and experimentally validate them with using appropriate communication and navigation algorithms to construct an intelligent mapping system.  For this purpose, new exploration algorithms should be developed that take into account different sources of uncertainty, such as positioning and orientation uncertainty, or the uncertainty in the parameter estimation. This uncertainty information should in turn be used to develop intelligent, information-driven swarm coordination and exploration strategies based on information-theoretic principles that are widely used in communications engineering, image and signal processing. The developed algorithms should exploit a decentralized architecture and generate optimal sensing positions in real time by using distributed computing and communication resources on the robots. The methods should first be developed and tested using numerical simulations and later validated on robot platforms under realistic operations.
  • basic literature research in the field of autonomous swarm exploration, image and signal processing over networks, robotics, preparation and evaluation of this research.
  • model-based and data driven methods of image processing for mapping and monitoring tasks with single and multiple robotic platforms.
  • analysis of the developed procedures by theoretical evaluation and by computer-aided simulation
  • comparison of the performance of the newly developed methods with the performance of the state-of-the-art methods on the basis of KPIs (key performance indicators) such as speed of exploration and energy consumption of the swarm elements; analysis of the performance differences
  • validation of the developed swarm exploration procedures in experiments
  • adaptation of the developed methods to the computers used on the experimental platforms and to the real-time capability required in the experiments
  • development of methods to increase the robustness of the swarm exploration algorithms
  • integration of sensors and algorithms on the experimental platforms
  • design, preparation and execution of experiments in outdoor environments
  • evaluation of the results obtained in the experiments using KPI. Comparison with the theoretically obtained results and interpretation of differences between theory and experiments
  • publication of the results in international journals and at professional conferences

Diplom & Master


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

10.10.2022


Job description:

In Germany, refrigeration accounts for 14% of electricity consumption. Cooling on a small scale, as it is required, e.g., in electronic chips, lab-on-chip systems, chemical and biological analysis, is often performed by miniaturization-compatible thermoelectric cooling, which is however rather in-efficient.

The search for energy-efficient, ’green’ alternatives has recently lead to increased interest in solid-state cooling based on caloric effects. Among these, the elastocaloric effect in shape memory alloys exhibits particularly high temperature changes and material-level coefficients of performance (COP) exceeding 80% of the thermodynamic maximum. Shape memory alloys belong to the class of smart materials showing heat absorption, heat generation, actuation and sensing. The goal will be to explore the potential of the elastocaloric effect in these materials for small-scale or ’microcooling’ applications, making use of shape memory films. Although this thesis is targeted at miniature scale cooling, it may also be used for larger scales in parallel architectures.

Your Tasks:

  • Characterization of the elastocaloric effect in SMA film materials
  • Modelling (Matlab, Simscape) and design
  • Prototype development: Fabrication, performance tests, characterization

 

To carry out the work, the IMT has extensive state-of-the-art equipment (600 m² clean room, rapid prototyping processes such as 3D printing and laser cutting, assembly and joining technology laboratories, various metrological laboratories). Intensive support ensures that the work can be carried out within the given time frame.

Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

10.10.2022


Job description:

Among the various transducer materials, shape memory alloys (SMAs) offer a number of unique properties including thermoelasticity, superelasticity, actuation at highest work densities up to 107 Jm-3 and self-sensing. SMA actuators make use of temperature-induced martensitic transformation allowing for high actuation force and stroke length. Their characteristic of being a “smart material” becomes particularly advantageous upon miniaturization, as technology constraints pose severe limitations on the number, geometry and size of functional structures.

The goal of the Master Thesis will be to explore the potential of the shape memory effect in a novel out-of-plane actuator design for miniature actuation applications, with emphasis on utilization of low-grade heat as heat source < 200 ℃.

Diplom & Master


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

12.10.2022


Job description:

An electron-beam microscopy system encodes the sample properties, being exposed to the beam, in the path and phase of the electrons. An external magnetic field enables us to manipulate the electron path and scan the surface of the sample. Magnetizing coils can be utilized for this purpose. Limited space inside the device restricts the size of the coils. Besides, the coil shall be capable of providing the required magnetic field while the power dissipation is kept minimum in order to avoid any thermal load to the system and distort the temperature inside the chamber.

Miniaturized magnetizing coils are a good candidate for this purpose since their size can be adjusted according to the space requirements. Furthermore, they produce a relatively high magnetic field for a unit applied power. These coils also can focus the field at a small spot and avoid stray fields.

This project is a collaboration between Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT-KIT) and the center for microscopy and spectroscopy with electrons of Forschungszentrum Jülich. The main objective of this project is to tailor miniaturized coils for E-Beam systems.

As a part of this collaboration, we are employing enthusiastic students who would like to work on the challenging and novel topic to design, simulate, and fabricate a microchip with the required characteristics.

You will be integrated in the larger team of the Spin & Photon Applications (SPA-) Laboratory. Within this project, you will use the infrastructure existent at the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT), i.e., microfabrication facilities and micro-characterization equipment. This is a complete project, offering the possibility to fabricate and test the devices, giving you the opportunity to co-author conference and/or journal publications.

Job description:

Augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) are important tools for accelerating digital transformation. These technologies enable virtual content to be superimposed on the real environment in the form of holograms and allows users to interact with the data.Augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) are important tools for accelerating digital transformation. These technologies enable virtual content to be superimposed on the real environment in the form of holograms and to interact with them.

We at the Institute of Software Technology are developing concepts to take advantage of mobile AR devices, such as the Microsoft HoloLens data glasses, in the field of geospatial data verification. In particular, traffic infrastructure data will become increasingly relevant in the future regarding the context of automated driving assistance systems, but also for efficient urban planning, and the correctness of these data will thus become more and more critical. We use AR visualizations to overlay the nominal state of traffic infrastructure (signs, traffic lights, lane markings, ...) directly over the real environment, making it easier to detect discrepancies in the datasets and report them directly from within the AR application. 

The AR application shall use AI-based recognition of the real traffic infrastructure to alert the AR user to possible discrepancies between the target and actual state of the infrastructure. For this purpose, different state-of-the-art object recognition models will be tested for their applicability for real-time AR visualization on the HoloLens and compared with each other. The most promising models will then be integrated into the existing AR application as a plug-in

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


Job description:The Swarm Exploration Research Group, propose a development of an intelligent, autonomous multi-agent system for modeling smoke propagation from forest fires, as well as for automating early forest fire detections. The system will be based on fusing two types of in-situ sensing mechanisms. First, it is an in-situ sensing of smoke concentrations and wind information with a) a swarm of drones carrying smoke sensors and b) firefighters on site carrying ground-based sensors. Second, it is a visual information obtained based on satellite imagery and RGB/thermal infrared cameras likewise carried by the swarm. We plan to combine this information in real time in order to compute realistic 3D maps of smoke concentrations. The goal is to provide smoke concentrations above, as well as below tree foliage (and in this way identify safety zones for ground personnel) as well as to predict smoke dynamics over the territory of interest. The solution will incorporate four main components: 
  • an integrated sensor package carried by the swarm, as well as smoke sensors carried by firefighters
  • robotic platforms used to carry the sensors
  • AI-based algorithms for processing of the sensed data, smoke propagation modeling, and development of corresponding strategies for intelligent navigation of the drones for more accurate map calculation 
  • interfaces to Virtual reality/Augmented reality interfaces and other decision support platforms, and validations of the systems in controlled environments as well as in predefined use case scenarios
  • The developed algorithms should exploit a decentralized architecture by using distributed computing and communication resources on the robots. The methods should first be developed and tested using numerical simulations and later validated on robot platforms under realistic operations.
    • basic literature research in the field of autonomous swarm exploration, image and signal processing over networks, robotics, computational fluid dynamics, preparation and evaluation of this research.
    • development of theoretically optimal procedures for autonomous swarm exploration of gases as well as procedures based on artificial intelligence methods, among others
    • analysis of the developed procedures by theoretical evaluation and by computer-aided simulation
    • comparison of the performance of the newly developed methods with the performance of the state-of-the-art methods on the basis of KPIs (key performance indicators) such as speed of exploration and energy consumption of the swarm elements; analysis of the performance differences
    • validation of the developed swarm exploration procedures in experiments
    • adaptation of the developed methods to the computers used on the experimental platforms and to the real-time capability required in the experiments
    • development of methods to increase the robustness of the swarm exploration algorithms
    • integration of sensors and algorithms on the experimental platforms
    • design, preparation and execution of experiments in outdoor environments
    • evaluation of the results obtained in the experiments using KPI. Comparison with the theoretically obtained results and interpretation of differences between theory and experiments
    • publication of the results in international journals and at professional conferences

    Part-Time Suitability:

    The position is suitable for part-time employment.


    Starting date:

    25.10.2022


    Job description:

    Within the ongoing energy transition, increasing amounts of different Lithium-Ion secondary batteries (LiB) will be needed for stationary and mobile applications. This goes along with concerns about resource availability and criticality. In particular supply chains have to be considered to anticipate potential hotspots when building up a European battery production. There are several criticality based indicators and models available nowadays, which provide mostly a static picture of current situations, so to say only a snapshot of the present. There is a lack to display dynamic changes in production, in products and/or activities over time. Here agent-based modelling and simulation can help to identify in a more dynamic way potentials of supply risks. This is done by translating demand emerges from individual agent decisions and interaction into a dynamic material flow model, representing the materials' stocks and flows of Li, Ni, Mn, Co and natural Graphite. Doing so, it is critical to consider also potential waste flows that can be recycled.     

    In particular, the work comprises the following tasks:

    • Review of existing publications on criticality of energy storage and raw materials (e.g. metals)
    • Analysis of hypothetical disruptive changes in supply chains and familiarisation with criticality indicators
    • Familiarisation with FRAMESS, an existing framework for agent-based analysis and optimization
    • Determination of raw material origins and main destinies of waste batteries (material flow analysis)
    • Quantification material flows benefits and consideration of a sensitivity analysis.
    • Integration into FRAMESS and development of a suitable modelling approach for dynamic assessments
    • Critical reflection of the outcomes

    IEK-3 - Techno-ökonomische Systemanalyse


    Area of research:

    Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    Your Job:

    Energy system modelling is a common approach for policy advice, which often seeks for minimum occurring costs regarding various exogenous factors. However, on global scale investment costs and risks cannot be assumed equal. Investment risks are commonly applied as a discount factor in energy system models and the massive impact of including differentiated risks is already proven. Nevertheless, no realistic approach exists so far to reflect the cost impact of the various risks within these models. Besides differentiating discount rates, the investment cost of the required hydrogen infrastructure can differ country-wise as well. Often, either uncertain and intransparent approaches are applied, or the risks are not differentiated at all This leads to under-, or overestimation of the energy cost conducted in models and, finally, could end up in misleading results for policy advice as those results are highly sensitive to these costs and discount rates. Your task will be to develop globally applicable, transparent approaches to include risk and capacity cost differences into energy system models. Therefore, you will first compare existing approaches for inclusion of differentiated discount rates and investment costs. After that, you will develop our models further by applying your gained knowledge and your own ideas further. Concrete steps could be but are not limited to:

    • Literature research on existing approaches to integrate risks and to differentiate investment costs in energy system modelling regarding various technologies and countries
    • Developing your own approach to include regional and technological risks considering exogenous factors
    • Developing your own approach to differentiate investment costs of the required hydrogen infrastructure
    • Implementation of your ideas in existing python-based models
    • Evaluation of the impact of your approach

    Your Profile:

    • You are in your master studies of economics, industrial engineering, or a comparable course of study.
    • Interest in today`s challenges of the energy transition and the economic consequences
    • High self-motivation to solve complex problems
    • Independent way of working

    Job description:

    The DLR Institute of Atmospheric Physics studies the physics and chemistry of the global atmosphere from the ground to the upper edge of the middle atmosphere at an altitude of about 120 km. As an institute of the German Aerospace Center, the institute addresses questions regarding the atmosphere relevant to DLR in the HGF programs of Aeronautics, Space, Transport and Energy. To this end, the institute covers the entire spectrum of methods ranging from sensor development, observations on different spatial scales (local to global), analysis, theory to numerical modeling including future projections.
    The Earth System Model Evaluation and Analysis Department develops innovative methods to improve Earth system models and their evaluation with observations with the aim to better understand and project climate change. The evaluation and ensemble analysis of Earth system models is essential to continuously improve the models and a prerequisite for reliable climate projections of the 21st century, which are used in climate policy guidelines. In order to improve the routine and comprehensive evaluation of climate models, the department is leading the development of the Earth System Model Evaluation Tool (ESMValTool). A major focus of the department is the development and application of machine learning (ML) methods to improve the understanding and modeling of the Earth system.

    Quantum computers are one of the ground-breaking novel technologies of the 21st century. They will make it possible to perform calculations and simulations that conventional computers would need a prohibitive amount of time for. With the Quantum Computing Initiative, DLR has begun a concerted effort to build quantum computers for Europe and unlock their potential for pioneering applications.

The unique opportunities that quantum computing offers are explored to help make climate models and their development process better and faster. This work will be done in close collaboration with industry partners. 

    In this position, you will further develop hybrid conventional/quantum algorithms for learning parameterizations for a global climate model are technically and support the KLIM-QML team in the application and implementation of these algorithms into the ICON climate model. In addition, you will run simulations with the newly developed ICON-QML and evaluate them in comparison with observations using the ESMValTool developed at the institute.

    Area of research:

    PHD Thesis


    Job description:

    Your Job:

    Current political events highlight the high importance of a robust and affordable energy supply. The transformation towards a greenhouse gas-neutral renewable energy system can foster independence from fossil fuels, but at the same time also create new uncertainties in supply. In this doctoral thesis, you will investigate which disruptive events and crises could jeopardise the transformation and what an effective strategy for a robust renewable energy supply could consist of. You will analyse how robust renewable, greenhouse gas-neutral energy systems can be and which disruptive events could affect the energy system and in which way. The first step is to identify disruptive events for a secure, renewable energy supply. Then, with the help of the "Modelling to Generate Alternatives (MGA)" technique, the solution space of energy system optimization models will be examined for near-optimal solutions that would be as robust as possible to the disruptive events. For this purpose, you will further develop existing models for energy system analysis in Python and perform the following work:

    • Creative, science-based development of a definition of robustness or resilience of renewable energy supply to disruptive events
    • Identification and modelling of disruptive events and scenarios for renewable energy supply
    • Integration of the methodology "Modelling to Generate Alternatives (MGA)" into the IEK-3 framework for energy system modelling "FINE" in Python ( github.com/FZJ-IEK3-VSA/FINE )
    • Identification of robust transformation pathways under international crises for the energy system and their path dependencies.
    • Identification of robust transformation pathways and analysis of the robustness of the German energy system under disruptive events and crises for the renewable energy supply
    • Active participation in the scientific and public discourse (including publication of results in renowned scientific journals)

    Your Profile:

    • A completed master`s degree in the field of natural or (industrial) engineering, informatics, or a related field of study.
    • Good knowledge of mathematical optimization methods (knowledge of robust optimization is an advantage)
    • Very good knowledge of energy technology and economics
    • Programming skills are an advantage (e.g. Python)
    • High degree of independence and willingness to show great commitment
    • Very reliable and conscientious work style
    • Fluent English and German language skills, both written and spoken

    Our Offer:

    We work on the very latest issues that impact our society and are offering you the chance to actively help in shaping the change! We offer ideal conditions for you to complete your doctoral degree:

    • Strong collaboration in a project team in the RESUR project (https://www.fz-juelich.de/en/iek/iek-3/projects/resur)
    • The opportunity to complete a doctoral thesis within 3 years through professional supervision and internal support services; time taken to submit the final thesis for the last 16 doctoral students at IEK-3: 2.7 - 3.4 years
    • A highly motivated working group as well as an international and interdisciplinary working environment in one of the largest research institutions in Europe
    • Active further development of a comprehensive energy system model in order to support energy policy decision-makers in a scientifically sound manner
    • Excellent scientific and technical infrastructure
    • Opportunity to participate in (international) conferences and project meetings
    • Continuous professional support by your scientific supervisor(s)
    • A large research campus in the countryside, which offers the best opportunities for networking with colleagues as well as for a sporty balance besides work
    • Best conditions for successful work in a home office (moving to the Aachen-Düsseldorf-Cologne region is not absolutely necessary)
    • 30 days of annual leave and provision for days off between public holidays and weekends (e.g. between Christmas and New Year)
    • Further development of your personal strengths, e.g. through an extensive range of training courses; a structured program of continuing education and networking opportunities specifically for doctoral researchers via JuDocS, the Jülich Center for Doctoral Researchers and Supervisors: www.fz-juelich.de/en/judocs

    Job description:

    The Department of Aerogels and Aerogel Composites at the Institute of Materials Research is well-known for their research on the development of highly open-porous nanostructured materials based on organic and inorganic sources by means of the sol-gel process. The research focus lies in application-oriented development of organic, inorganic, carbon, and biopolymer aerogels and their composites by employing state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical/computational methods.

    The research group Atomistic and Microstructure Simulation of Aerogels concerns itself with modeling and simulation of the above-mentioned materials either by applying or developing new theoretical methodologies at the atomistic scale using methods such as density functional theory or molecular dynamics simulations and at the microstructure scale by using coarse grained or cellular automata-based models. Additionally, machine learning methods are employed for predictive modeling and inverse design of materials towards reverse engineering.

    For one of our projects, we are looking for a student with experience in supporting software development. We are looking for someone with primary experience in front-end as well as back-end programming. The work within the framework of this position would comprise of: 

    • development of the backend and front end of an in-house-developed tool
    • converting the state-of-the-art Python code into an object-oriented C++ code
    • optimization, parallelization, and scaling of the code
    • literature and patent research
    • development on Windows and Linux

    Other,Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    A particular challenge for autonomous vehicle development is to become safer and more fuel-efficient as requirements of the vehicle increase. For instance, with the increasing level of road-traffic autonomy (SAE Level 5), the importance of occupant protection will increase. For instance, the undefined occupant positioning during a possible crash load results in uncertainty of the loads and injuries sustained by the occupant. Therefore, a more detailed understanding of them is required for the structural design of the vehicle. This is only possible via a detailed modelling of the human physiology (human models) throughout the crash phase. The first step of the work should develop an overview of the state of research in the field of human modelling. Subsequently, numerical human models (THUMS) will be analyzed for their capabilities and limitations in order to derive a suitable strategy for the integration of human modelling. Finally, an initial assessment of the “out-of-positioning” risks will be carried out via the implementation of the human models into the crash model of the Urban Modular Vehicle.

    Content of the work:

    • literature research of autonomous vehicle crash concepts for occupant protection
    • literature research of human modelling in crash simulation
    • research of existing approaches and solutions to “out-of-position” seating
    • comparison of crash behaviour between dummy and human models
    • evaluation of the crash safety performance of the Urban Modular Vehicle with the aid of human models
    • documentation of the work accomplished

    Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    It is conventional for satellites and Earth-based stations to communicate using radio transmissions. At these wavelengths the atmosphere is transparent. However, a revolutionary technology is emerging that harnesses the capability of performing these transmissions at optical wavelengths. A compelling advantage of free-space optical communication is that it would increase the current rate of data transfer by many orders of magnitude. It is believed that this will lead the way towards future generations having worldwide high-speed internet access. Another driving force is that the realisation of this technology would transform deep space exploration.

    Optical wavefronts from a celestial source propagate freely through outer space. It is only in the last fraction of their journey towards the Earth – where they propagate through atmospheric turbulence – that they become perturbed. The source of this image blurring is the constant mixing of different temperatures throughout the atmosphere, causing the wavefront to travel through regions of varying refractive index. These aberrations are so severe that they prevent optical ground-space links from being established.

    One of the most promising solutions for mitigating the effects of atmospheric turbulence is Adaptive Optics (AO) – a real-time technology that corrects for wavefront aberrations by first measuring their integrated strength. The wind drives atmospheric turbulence. Therefore, these AO systems must be updated thousands of times per second. The entire performance of the AO system depends on the strength and speed distribution of turbulent layers throughout the atmosphere. Characterising these atmospheric parameters is critical for optimised AO performance, AO performance verification and automated site ranking, i.e. spacecraft can use this information to select the ground station currently best suited for stable communication.

    The project will focus on optimising AO system performance for free-space optical communication. Its research topics will cover techniques for characterising the effects of atmospheric turbulence. DLR has already developed a number of sophisticated instruments that have taken data at world-leading observatories. The student will be tasked with further developing existing software tools for analysing this data. They will have access to advanced simulation software and high-performance computing hardware. It is hoped that they will support scientific measurement campaigns, and use this opportunity to test their developed concepts on-sky. Novel ideas will be encouraged.

    Activities:

    • theoretical analysis of optical wavefront propagation
    • implementation and performance analysis of novel algorithms
    • evaluation of measurements and analysis of the results
    • writing and maintaining advanced software packages
    • concise presentation of results and further ideas
    • possible participation in on-sky measurement campaigns

    Area of research:

    Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    Your Job:

    The use of bipolar memory devices to achieve synaptic connectivity in neural networks is highly dependent on the ability of the devices to perform analogue conductance modulation using electrical stimuli in the form of identical voltage pulses. Typically, the filamentary components of the valence change memory (VCM) type exhibit abrupt SET switching behaviour and gradual RESET switching behaviour. Therefore, obtaining an analogue modulation of the conductance during SET and RESET is a challenge. In order to achieve analogue writing modes with ultra-short pulses, using a Bias tee, we can simultaneously apply a series of ultra-short pulses (ps) and a continuous read voltage. So one can measure the resistance changes while applying pulse trains. The aim of the thesis is to

    • characterize irreversible processes (such as ion migration), investigate analogue modes of operation
    • realize STP/LTP by gradual stepwise switching events in resistive switching valence change memory (VCM)
    • track the change of resistance upon application of ultra-short pulses in order to
    • generate a linear relationship between the change in resistance and the number of pulses
    • electrical characterization on our ultra-fast RF setup, using bias tee, SMU, pulse generator and oscilloscope
    • control measurements and evaluate data via python code

    PHD Thesis


    Job description:

    Your Job:

    The current state of lithium batteries as a promising energy storage system suffers from limited voltages and low capacities and does not meet the growing demands of the future energy storage market. In this regard, a transition from the current phase to next-generation of batteries with higher energy densities, lower cost, and longer cycle life is inevitable. Solid-state batteries (SSBs) are regarded as promising next-generation energy storage devices because of their increased safety and energy density. However, a prospective transition from the conventional to next-generation SBBs includes not only the development and modification of high-performance solid-state electrolyte formulations but also the boundary of the electrolytes with electrodes (so-called "interphase"). An in-depth understanding of the processes at the interface/interphase in SSBs is essential because it provides critical information on the interfacial products, structure, conductivity, and their various effects on cell stability and electronic performance.

    The Ph.D. project is designed to develop novel electrolyte formulations to improve the chemical and physical properties of the interphase in SBBs. The developed interphases will be investigated with advanced state-of-the-art in situ Raman and FTIR spectroscopy techniques to acquire a molecular-level understanding of the interface phenomena in SBBS.

    • Electrochemical (potentiostatic/galvanostatic cycling, LSV, and EIS ) and analytical characterization of battery cell components
    • Analysis of the electrochemical and vibrational spectroscopy data
    • Writing papers and presenting the results at conferences

    Your Profile:

    • Excellent university degree (Master) in chemistry or materials science or a comparable field of study
    • Excellent knowledge and proven interest in the field of electrochemistry
    • Basic knowledge of organic chemistry; preferably in polymer chemistry
    • Willingness to learn the relevant topics of advanced vibrational spectroscopy
    • Strong interest in working in the interdisciplinary fields of energy storage and operando analysis
    • Ability to show initiative and work independently
    • Excellent cooperation, communication, and teamwork abilities
    • Excellent English proficiency in spoken and written

    We work on the very latest issues that impact our society and are offering you the chance to actively help in shaping the change! We offer ideal conditions for you to complete your doctoral degree:

    • A lively scientific environment within HI MS and possibilities for cooperation with our partners at RWTH Aachen, Forschungszentrum Jülich, and WWU Münster
    • Excellent environment to perform high-quality research and to implement own ideas in the development process
    • Excellent scientific and technical infrastructures
    • Extensive company health management
    • Ideal conditions for balancing work and private life, as well as a family-friendly corporate policy
    • International and interdisciplinary working environment

    Job description:

    Free-Space Optical (FSO) communication enables ultra-high-rate data transmission and is an enabling technology for long distance Quantum Key Distribution (QKD). FSO communication systems, on the other hand, are complex technologies that include a number of subsystems that must all function in unison. Therefore, determining the quality of the link that can be established in a particular communication context is a challenging task in and of itself. The classical data rate in a conventional communication scenario or the secure key rate of a QKD protocol can be determined using the predicted signal intensity (i.e., the link budget). Creating software to calculate overall transmissivity and, consequently, the signal strength seen at the receiver, will be the task at hand. This software will be instrumental for the design of FSO communication systems at DLR.

    Other,Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    A virtual reality simulation of our solar system is being developed at the Institute for Software Technology. The framework consists of the open source application CosmoScout VR. With level-of-detail algorithms, high-resolution digital elevation models and satellite images, entire planets and space missions can be explored in real time. At the DLR large amounts of scientific data are accumulated, which come from a wide variety of sources, such as sensors and simulations. In order to be able to analyze this data, different visualization techniques for CosmoScout VR are developed, which help to get a better insight into the data.

    The goal of this work is to extend CosmoScout VR with an audio framework that can sonify georeferenced scientific data. It should be possible for the user to move through a scalar field and perceive the data spatially through sonification. This can be done, for example, through metaphors such as rain. If the user is at a point with low scalar values, the rain is quiet and if the user is at a point with high scalar values, the rain is louder. Extreme values could possibly also be provided with special sounds, like thunder.

    A literature review on sonication for spatial analysis of scientific data shall be conducted. Then, an audio plug-in for CosmoScout VR shall be developed and prototypically selected sonification metaphors shall be integrated. In the end, the audio framework shall be tested and evaluated on a data set with noise emissions. Acceptance studies will round out the work.

    Other,Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    DLR is developing and implementing approaches to reduce space debris in low-Earth orbit. Modern robotic systems make it possible to repair satellites directly in orbit and thus extend their service life. In the event of irreparable damage, satellites can be selectively deorbited to avoid collisions with other objects.

    Since the satellites to be repaired could behave uncontrollably in some cases, the repair can only be automated to a limited extent. Instead, concepts for teleoperation are being developed, which, with the help of virtual reality (VR) visualizations, enable the operator to take the perspective of the robotic system and manually control the repair process. Using three-dimensional visualization and real-time attitude information, a clearer overview of the current situation can be obtained and informed decisions can be made.

    During the manual control of robotic systems, various problems, both human and technical, can occur, leading to unintended movements. One approach to avoid such errors are so called Virtual Fixtures. Virtual barriers make it possible to specifically restrict the freedom of movement of robotic systems and thus prevent unintentional actions. These barriers define three-dimensional areas in which the robotic system may be located. Due to the non-collaborative behavior of the system to be repaired, these virtual fixtures can seldom be placed automatically. Instead, they should be strategically placed for the teleoperator by other experts.

    In the context of this thesis, the integration of such Virtual Fixtures in Augmented Reality for the above described scenario of on-orbit repair shall be investigated. For this purpose, existing approaches of virtual barriers, as well as their application scenarios shall be identified first. Then, the influence of different aspects, such as input methods during placement, output method (2D, VR, AR) or the geometry of the virtual barriers on the usability of virtual barriers for our scenario shall be investigated. Finally, the different approaches are to be compared, evaluated as part of a user study and finally presented.

    Job description:

    UAVs represent one of the most relevant emerging technologies in the remote sensing domain of the last two decades, becoming a valid alternative to traditional acquisition techniques in a wide range of applications. However, the generation of image-derived 3D point clouds and the semantic understanding of the scene are usually generated after the acquisition flight, strongly limiting the applicability of UAVs in dynamic and complex contexts. Examples of UAVs able to generate 3D real-time semantic maps from UAV data are still in their very early stage. However, these solutions would promise to revolutionize the use of UAVs in many applications, such as mapping in emergency scenarios. 

    The candidate will work at the crossroad of photogrammetric computer vision and deep learning to develop the next generation of real-time algorithms for the reliable generation of 3D semantic maps from UAV data. Both onboard processing and remote/cloud solutions will be considered for this task to deliver flexible solutions usable on both high-end and low-cost UAV platforms. Different operational scenarios will be considered during the PhD, with specific regard to times of emergency after disaster events. The candidate should have an MSc in geomatics, computer science or robotics, with expertise in deep learning and computer vision. Specific experience in C++ programming will be needed to develop the algorithms and embed them in the already existing DLR solutions.

    The PhD will be developed at the German Aerospace Centre, Institute of Optical Sensor Systems – in Berlin (Germany). At the same time, you will be enrolled as PhD student at the University of Twente.

    The PhD will be co-supervised by DLR researchers and academic staff of the University of Twente. The PhD degree will be awarded by the University of Twente (The Netherlands) within a collaboration framework between the UAV Centre of the University of Twente and the Department Security Research and Applications of DLR.

    Job description:

    Major economies are adopting laws to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Meeting the increasing demand for heat and the associated wide-ranging and diverse challenges requires exploiting energy resources in the most efficient, cost-effective and sustainable way possible. Novel systems to improve the fuel-to-heat efficiency in domestic heating applications are required. In this thesis, a techno-economic comparative study is conducted to assess the competitiveness of four technologies for domestic heating in Germany:

    • electricity-driven standalone heat pumps;
    • electricity-driven solar-assisted heat pumps;
    • hydrogen-driven absorption heat pumps; and
    • conventional natural gas boilers, for different scenarios.

    The overall aim of the research is to present a methodology for identifying promising heat pump technologies that can be used to meet the demand for space heating and hot water in domestic applications. The trade-offs between the cost and performance of different current and disruptive heat-pump solutions will be explored and the techno-economic potential of innovative systems will be assessed and compared against conventional natural gas-fired heating technologies. The objectives of the thesis are:

    • To compare heat pump solutions in terms of payback time, total lifetime cost, levelized cost of energy, total cost, consumed electricity power and environmental impact
    • To compare heat pump solutions under different fuel prices, i.e., electricity, natural gas and hydrogen prices
    • To compare heat pump solutions under different price-reduction predictions for solar panels, absorption heat pumps and electricity-driven heat pumps
    • To compare heat pump solutions under different economic parameters, i.e., market discount rate and fuel inflation rate
    • To explore potential incentives (e.g., subsidies, grants) that can lead towards optimal technology uptake and heat decarbonisation

    Job description:

    Microfluidics concerns fluidic application with characteristic dimensions bellow 1mm. With strong influence of surface and interface effects, microfluidics opens the door to novel and interesting perspectives, enabling the automation of operations and a repeatable and concise sample handling. Recent developments have contributed to the widespread popularization of these technics to a wider public and ranges of applications, such as flow chemistry. Nonetheless, the area is still not mature enough that clear standards exist for fabrication techniques, materials, connections and measurements.

    In the context of the micro Nuclear Magnetic Resonance team of the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT), you will investigate the existing standards and methods available in the IMT and in the literature. Next, you will develop and optimize these methods to build benchmark microfluidics chips. These chips in turn will be tested through different orthogonal methods and the results compared with analytical and simulation predictions.

    Of particular interest are the measurement carried out using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). NMR is the measurement of the evolution of an nuclear spin system under a controlled radiofrequency perturbation. This method allows for a very deep insight into the behavior of the flow without the need of tracers or modifications to the flow and with negligible bias, orders of magnitude below that of current competing methods. However, the use of NMR to characterize microfluidic flows adds new and interesting constrains and challenges.

    Given the high degree of interdisciplinarity of this thesis, candidates lacking knowledge in one of the mentioned areas, but with a good background on the others, will be tutored and instructed in the needed topics. It is also possible to join the team at IMT before the master thesis as a student scientific aid (HiWi), to gain familiarity with the microfluidic and MRI hardware, software and manufacturing techniques available in situ. The exact focus of the thesis can be determined upon discussion.

    Job description:

    Solar energy is one of the most abundant renewable energy sources and effective solar technologies have a great potential to alleviate the grand challenges of satisfying rising energy demands, while reducing the associated emissions. Of particular interest in this context is the solar combined cooling, heating and power systems based on advanced hybrid photovoltaic-thermal (PVT) collectors, which offers an attractive option that is more reliable and less costly for building applications.

    This study will present a comprehensive analysis of the energetic, economic and environmental potentials of hybrid PVT-based solar energy systems for combined heating, cooling and power provision in building applications. In addition, four types of solar-based combined heat and/or power systems have been compared comprehensively to the PVT solar system, namely:

    • a PVT combined heating and power system,
    • a PV power system,
    • a solar-thermal heating system, and
    • a solar-thermal based heating and cooling system.

    This thesis is expected to provide valuable guidance to determine the optimal design of solar systems for each scenario, for further development of solar energy systems for their practical applications.

    The objectives of the thesis are:

    • Transient operation of solar combined heating, cooling and power system
    • Monthly and annual results of demands, coverages and excesses of the electricity, cooling and thermal energy
    • Annual economic and environmental performance

    Job description:

    At the Institute for Software Technology, georeferenced data are processed for visual analysis in various projects. The goal of this thesis is to improve the visualisation by an intuitive acoustic perception of multidimensional, georeferenced data. For this purpose, novel representation metaphors will be investigated and combined with auralisation methods. The focus will be on different approaches for mapping scientific data to rainfall scenarios. Georeferenced scale fields are to be represented audiovisually, e.g., by a weather metaphor such as rain splashing or cloudiness, and conveyed in a way that is intuitively understandable even to laypersons. One idea could be to present the data ranges at one end of the scale as clear skies and sunny weather, and at the other end of the scale as a dark cloud cover with a rumble of thunder. Extreme ranges can be highlighted by a flashing cloud cover, other severe weather symptoms or sunbeams (crepuscular rays). Further rain metaphors are to be developed, compared with the state of the art, and finally evaluated by a user study.

    The Sustainable Materials Group (FS-SMA) at DESY focuses on functionalized polymeric materials on bio-basis. Especially we focus on sustainable processes, for example additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing often requires photopolymerization to induce cross-linking. However, little is known about the physical transformations occurring during the photo-induced chemical reactions. In the framework of a German-Swedish-Dutch collaboration between KTH, DESY, U Eindhoven, and TUM, we aim at understanding the fundamental processes during photopolymerization and their influence on optical and mechanical properties of monolayer and multilayer devices. Here, we plan to apply our recently developed real-time monitoring with synchrotron- and neutron-based grazing incidence scattering. Thus, we are looking for a motivated PhD student. The PhD student will be located at DESY and will be enrolled at TU Munich in the TUM School of Natural Sciences.

    Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    Free-Space optical communication is an enabling technology, which due to its compactness and power efficiency allows for high-bandwidth connections on even the smallest orbital platforms such as CubeSATs whereas its scalability make terabit per second links with larger payloads practical. In contrast to classical communications, quantum key distribution (QKD) are only possible with optical wavelengths. Light absorption in optical fibres limits the practical reach of such connections to approx. 200 km. Combined with free-space optical communication technology quantum links can be realized over large geographical spans.

    The Optical Communication Systems Group at the Institute of Communications and Navigation has been developing an optical communication payload for small satellites, CubeSats, atmospheric platforms, etc.  For ensuring operability in a space environment, the communication terminals must be tested and characterised. In the lab this is done with an optical setup (optical ground support equipment, OGSE) which simulates the deployment environment of the terminal.  In the scope of this project, an OGSE system is to be developed, which will be used for optical adjustments and characterisation of tracking performance of various laser communication terminals.

    Therefore, the following main tasks will be:

    • assembly of optical systems
    • preparation of test setups
    • evaluation of measurement data

    Job description:

    Your Job:

    Current political events highlight the high importance of a robust and affordable energy supply. The transformation towards a greenhouse gas-neutral renewable energy system can foster independence from fossil fuels, but at the same time also create new uncertainties in supply. Disruptive events as well as changing political, social and technological framework conditions can influence the security of supply of the existing and future sector-coupled German energy system. In this thesis, you will identify and systematize possible disruptive events from the perspective of the energy infrastructure and derive short- and medium-term scenarios to investigate the impact on the German energy system and its robust design with existing energy system models of IEK-3. In doing so, you will pursue various questions, such as: How can security of supply be modeled in a future energy system model considering sector coupling? Which disruptive events, crises, political decisions, and technological innovations would be conceivable and how do they affect the design of energy infrastructures? To answer these questions, you will enhance an existing energy system model in Python and perform the following work:

    • Identify and systematize disruptive events for the integrated energy system from the energy infrastructure perspective
    • Further development of an existing energy system model to integrate the representation of the security of supply on different levels

    Diplom & Master,Praktikum


    Job description:The Institute of Solar Research of the DLR conducts research into the technical and economic optimization of solar thermal energy generation at four different locations in Germany and southern Spain. The research and development activities are always application-oriented and close to industry. In the Solar Power Plant Technology department, scientists and engineers are developing the autonomous solar power tower of the future. At solar power tower, optical measurement methods already support operation by providing a variety of different image and video data. For future applications, the researchers plan to collect these image and video data via a common media infrastructure and store them in a data platform so that they can be made available to the various control, regulation and monitoring applications for further processing, preferably in real time. Your task is to develop the basis of this media infrastructure and test it in use at our research power plant in Jülich. You will first design a concept for connecting heterogeneous camera systems to a data platform based on an (OpenVidu/Kurento) media server. The system should include the following functions:image/video data processing: 
    • flexible acquisition of raw data from different camera systems 
    • storage of the raw and metadata of the camera in an (already existing) data platform
    UI for management of cameras and media: 
    • live display of image and video data from each camera system when the power plant is in operation 
    • functions to start and stop as well as to configure the camera systems
    In the course of your work, you will implement this architecture prototypically at the solar tower in Jülich. For this purpose, an existing camera for flux density measurement has to be connected to the data platform by means of the media infrastructure as an example. Moreover, it should provide for the user an interface for visualization and administration of the camera systems.

    Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


    Job description:

    Free Space Optical Communications with satellites is currently an exciting topic of development, with the potential to provide high bandwidth communications links for allowing broadband internet into remote areas, or providing unbreakable encrypted channels using Quantum Key Distribution. This becomes increasingly important in our world which requires global connectivity, and in which Quantum computers are becoming available that threaten existing encryption techniques.

    Free space links present new challenges as well as new opportunities. The light must travel through the atmosphere which causes instabilities. At the Institute for Communications and Navigations at DLR, we are developing technologies that can correct the light in real-time to provide stable and efficient communications links, such as Adaptive Optics. Adaptive Optics systems detect the wave-front error imparted on the light incoming to the Optical Ground Station, and perform correction using a "deformable mirror" that changes its shape to match the incoming wave. In this way, the light is better coupled to a communications system and the light transmitted from the ground station to the satellite is also stabilised.

    As part of our team, you would be developing the next generation of Adaptive Optics systems for free space optical communications. This includes development and testing of new control systems, algorithms and software for the Adaptive Optics system. Among others, you will be responsible for the following tasks:

    • development and optimisation of Adaptive Optics control software
    • software integration of new and novel hardware into the adaptive optics system
    • exploration of novel adaptive optics real-time control techniques, such as the use of Graphical Processing Units (GPUs), or Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)
    • development of advanced control algorithms for the Adaptive Optics control loop
    • development of control and automated calibration techniques for adaptive optics systems and free space optical communications terminals in general
    • participation in measurement campaigns in Germany and further afield to test Adaptive Optics systems in real satellite links

    Job description:

    Help make aviation more sustainable and climate-neutral. How? Quite simple: Join the alternative fuels team at the Institute of Combustion Technology and do research in the field of sustainable aviation fuels!

    There are currently no technological alternatives to liquid fuels, particularly for medium- and long-haul flights. At the same time, a large part of the harmful climate and environmental impact of aviation occurs on these routes. To address this, sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) are being extensively researched at the DLR Institute of Combustion Technology. The institute is involved in a number of large European research projects, both in the field of fuel production and fuel use. The aim is to develop sustainable fuels with a particular focus on minimizing the impact on the climate to enable a world of tomorrow worth living in.

    In the last few years, unique data sets on the effects of a wide variety of fuels have been collected in international ground and flight measurement campaigns. On this basis, our team in the department of Multiphase Flow and Alternative Fuels (MAT) develops and applies data-based methods (big data, machine learning, digital twin) to maximize the benefits of sustainable fuels. As part of the department, you will work in an international team of about 12 scientists from Germany and abroad.

    Although the demand for SAF by the market and legislation is increasing, the introduction of alternative fuels is associated with major challenges for the aviation industry. On the one hand, it is desirable to approve the largest possible number of fuels. On the other hand, no risk must arise from the use of a new fuel. Therefore, a wide variety of fuel properties need to be tested and critically reviewed in an elaborate approval process. In this context, our team developed the ASTM-approved DLR prescreening process on the basis of probabilistic machine learning algorithms to evaluate new fuel candidates with regard to requirements for fuel approval. Furthermore, we provide partners with the information necessary for a holistic product development.

    Machine learning models - such as those developed at DLR - are flexible algorithms, which demonstrated the capability of predicting a wide range of properties. The quality of the prediction however depends significantly on the training data set. This raises the question of how the training data must be distributed to achieve the desired predictive capability. Why is this important? Owing to novel production routes, the composition of new sustainable kerosene products will most likely differ significantly from conventional kerosene and other already approved fuels. In this context, your mission will be the evaluation and enhancement of current predictive capabilities with respect to new fuel production routes.

    Your Tasks:

    • training und validation of probabilistic machine learning models
    • evaluation of the current predictive capabilities with respect to new fuel production routes and the influence of the distribution of the training data sets
    • identification of gaps in the fuel data and closing of those gaps by defining data points for the training of the ML models in collaboration with the DLR-VT analytics department
    • development of similarity metrics to identify risks and loss in accuracy, precision and reliability of the probabilistic ML models when being applied to novel fuel samples
    • evaluation of the potential of embedding general physical laws into the ML methodology
    • critical analysis and improvement of the methodology
    • tasks as part of the maintenance of the fuel data base
    • make specific data sets accessible via web-based dashboards
    • screening of fuel products with respect to present and future (100% SAF) approval standards
    • analysis and Identification of promising fuel candidates with respect to added values, e.g. minimize emissions and thus environmental impact
    • tasks as part of research projects
    • presentation and publication of (scientific) work results
    • there is the opportunity to do a PhD

    Job description:

    The Institute for the Protection of Terrestrial Infrastructures aims at the stable supply of society. The development of methods for detecting and defending against threats is just as much a part of the tasks as improved management in the event of major emergencies. In the department "Digital Twins for Infrastructures", complex networked supply systems, socio-technical interrelationships as well as buildings and technical facilities are modeled and simulated in terms of structure and behavior. By tracking the models with real-time data and providing intelligent tools for crisis teams and emergency forces, digital twins are created that provide new possibilities for monitoring and responding to crises. They also provide a basis for analyzing and optimizing the resilience of terrestrial infrastructures.

    To use the Digital Twin effectively, it must provide attractive tools, whose added value contributes to e.g. the decision making in crisis situations or the possibility to investigate different scenarios to improve the resilience. To reach this goal, an agent-based simulation with predictive power is developed.

    Socio-technical models used in Digital Twins have to include human factors i.e. the interaction between people and their environment, e.g., the operation and maintenance of technical systems or the transport of resources. Currently, the generation of such socio-technical models is time-intensive due to the high amount of manual work that is necessary within the modeling process. Thus, the application is limited to the previously selected infrastructure.

    Within the project Automated Model Generation new methods should be developed to automate the information extraction from real-world data and its use to generate models. To adapt these methods to human factors and apply them on Digital Twins as an agent-based model, agent types has to be defined and described including their roles and goals within the infrastructures as well as their moving behavior and interaction with technical systems.

    Your mission is the automated modeling and simulation of pedestrian flows and socio-technical interactions as part of the Digital Twin generation process. This includes the following responsibilities:

    • analysis, verification and validation of existing models and software
    • development of a method to automatically initiate the pedestrian flow simulation. This includes:
      • automated generation of navigation fields based on components for geometry and technical systems
      • development of a Role- and Functionality catalogue for persons, their goals and related processes
      • definition of interaction between agents
    • conception of a method to enhance the pedestrian flow simulation model by interaction for
      • the connection to real-time data
      • and the coupling with other simulators
    • application of the methods on real, representative infrastructures and companies throughout projects

    You will contribute to a research project that deals with the automatization of the creation of Digital Twins for critical infrastructures and functional, interactive Virtual Environments. The fast and efficient generation of Digital Twins enables its application within crisis situation and therefore supports during all phases of current and historical crisis situations.

    You will implement your ideas in a dynamic and innovative institute of the German Aerospace Center. You can expect an advanced team spirit, excellent infrastructure with state-of-the-art equipment and current development environments. We also actively support you in your professional and scientific development.

    Job description:

    You want to combine state of the art machine learning and data science methods with real world sensor data to help reducing aviation’s climate impact? At the Multiphase Flows and Alternative Fuels Department of the DLR Institute of Combustion Technology we got the right mission for you!

    At the DLR Institute of Combustion Technology, we span the bridge from fundamental to applied sciences on research topics related to combustion and fuel. About 100 employees from various scientific fields utilize modern experimental and computing facilities, and diagnostics and numerical methods, to design and optimize clean combustion systems and to asses and optimize sustainable fuels. In the department of Multiphase Flow and Alternative Fuels (MAT) in Stuttgart, you will conduct and initiate projects in the field of alternative fuels for aviation, road transport, and the energy sector. Your research work will contribute to reducing, now, our impact on the environment and the climate.

    In a team of about 10 scientists from Germany and abroad your research work ranges from the development of numerical methods and models, to the identification of promising fuel candidates using in-house computer codes and data science, to the coordination of flight tests aiming at characterizing the emissions of sustainable aviation fuels. One particular focus of the department is the holistic evaluation and optimization of fuels: fuel design. The aim is to explore possibilities for a climate-neutral use of fuels by means of digital methods. For this purpose, information and data must be collected and made available over the entire product life cycle. Since risk-related decisions are made on the basis of this information, uncertainties in data and models must be systematically recorded and evaluated. To facilitate this, a digital thread for representing process and information chains by means of digital twins for fuels shall be established within the scope of the position being advertised.

    Within your mission, a hybrid sensor system for the fast online measurement of jet fuel properties (e.g. aromatic content, energy content) will be developed and its utilization at the airport and in fuel logistics will be demonstrated. This sensor system will combine sensor measurements and machine learning models and offers the potential to replace costly laboratory analytics. This could enable new potentials for reducing the climate impact of a flight mission, for example by adapting the flight routing to the available fuel or by optimized refueling strategies.

    Part-Time Suitability:

    The position is suitable for part-time employment.


    Job description:

    Since the increasing demand for renewable energy has led to many developments in the field of solar energy storage, the storage of solar energy as thermal energy has gained a lot of attention recently. Concentrated solar power (CSP) technology utilizes concentrating solar radiation to heat a heat transfer fluid (HTF), simultaneously used as thermal energy storage (TES) medium, to later drive a high temperature steam cycle. TES also allows leveling of the electricity demand by reducing short-term fluctuation. One of the most promising HTF/TES media based on molten salt used nowadays is a mixture of sodium nitrate and potassium nitrate also commonly known as Solar Salt.

    To increase the efficiency of TES by increasing the operation temperature, a deeper understanding of the nitrate salt chemistry is very important to gain a fundamental understanding of any limiting decomposition reaction at high temperatures. Solar Salt can decompose at high temperatures and to form a variety of ionic species, such as Nitrite-, Oxide ions, and different gas species such as oxygen and nitrous gases. The oxide ion is known to be highly corrosive species, that is produced as a decomposition product. In order to improve the stability and lower the corrosiveness of the solar salt it is important to understand the oxide ion chemistry inside the molten salt. The “Thermal Systems for Fluids” group specializes in understanding the molten salt chemistry and utilizing this know-how to stabilize the molten salts under operating conditions. The envisaged work, performed in the frame of a master thesis, includes experimental investigations on the oxide ion chemistry in nitrate melts, methodology development for analytic methods experimental and theoretical approaches. You will be part of a highly motivated and internationally recognized research team, performing research close to the needs of a growing energy sector.

    Your tasks:

    • in depth literature review on salt chemistry in nitrate melts
    • development of a methodology to qualitatively and quantitatively analyse oxide ion species
    • proof of concept by experimental work
    • finalizing and defending a bachelor/master thesis

    Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    With the ongoing development of quantum computers, the security of “classical” encryption techniques based on prime number factorisation is getting weaker. This is caused by the fact that current encryption systems rely on the long times a computer needs to solve a specific problem for encryption without knowing the key. These kinds of problems can be solved orders of magnitude faster with a quantum computer, therefore also future encryption must be quantum-safe and has to rely on phenomena that cannot be reverse-engineered by a quantum algorithm. The inherent randomness of quantum mechanics can be exploited to encrypt information against even all-powerful adversaries, as it is not based on an algorithm that can be inverted.

    QKD is part of a quantum-safe encryption system, where a key is generated and distributed to encrypt data with state-of-the-art encryption techniques. The creation of a quantum key generally involves an entity which generates random physical states of photons. Widely proposed system either use the polarisation or phase of photons which are further manipulated depending on the protocol in use.

    The department of Optical Satellite Links at the Institute of Communications and Navigation has been developing systems for QKD. This includes the generation of key material as well as the distribution via free space optical links. In the scope of this project, a directly pulsed laser will be characterised for its potential use in future QKD systems.

    Therefore, the following main tasks will be:

    • setting up a phase measurement system
    • control of driving parameter for the laser
    • evaluation of measurement data

    Diplom & Master


    Part-Time Suitability:

    The position is suitable for part-time employment.


    Starting date:

    02.06.2022


    Job description:

    The aim of this work is to propose a first setup for a breast cancer detecting wearable ultrasound detector system (“USCT Bra”) based on the 3D ultrasound Computer Tomography method of KIT. The industrial cooperation partner IcosaMed (CH) is working on the development of a first wearable monitoring device for women’s breasts, in a “smart bra”. This solution will offer a simple monitoring solution for women with genetic breast cancer risk factors or cancer history. These populations represent respectively 0.3% and 3% of all women, or 1.3 million and 13.8 million women in developed countries.

    The IPE at KIT developed a prototype for 3D ultrasound tomography (3D USCT) aimed at breast cancer diagnosis and carried out a first clinical study. The current prototype under commissioning is aimed at a larger multicenter study. The IPE also developed imaging algorithms and software as well as methods to optimize a given system layout. The current prototypes are stand-alone systems of the size of a patient bed with a transducer aperture with 34 cm diameter and 2304 ultrasound elements. The patient bed includes motion mechanics and data control and acquisition electronics.

    The main challenge of this feasibility study will be to combine the ideas of a wearable USCT bra with the patient bed design of 3D USCT, i.e. to miniaturize the system. In this first step the system layout of the ultrasound transducer aperture in form of a bra will be considered. The feasibility study should result in a proposal for the number, position and needed characteristics (center frequency, bandwidth, and opening angle) of the ultrasound transducers and make a prediction about reachable resolution and contrast of reflectivity imaging.

    Work plan:

    • Research of state of the art (1 month)
    • Simulation and optimization of bra aperture and transducers (3 months)
    • Simulation and reconstruction of breast images (1 month)
    •  Documentation of results (1 month)

    Diplom & Master,Praktikum


    Job description:

    At DLR's Institute of Solar Research, the scientists and engineers contribute with their work to making an environmentally friendly energy supply technically and economically possible. In the Solar Power Plant Technology department, we conduct experimental and computer-based research, development and testing for the intelligent and largely autonomous solar power tower of the future. The scientists and engineers are already using simulations as the operational basis for power plant operation. Here, artificial intelligence (AI) is playing an increasingly important role.

    In a solar power tower, a large number of biaxial tracking mirrors, so-called heliostats, concentrate the incident sunlight onto a receiver mounted on a tower. Each of these heliostats has individual errors which cause missing the designated aim point on the receiver. To counteract these errors, the heliostat must be calibrated regularly. For this purpose, a physical geometry model of the heliostat is created using the deviation from the designated aim point. However, this model does not fully represent the real heliostat and only uses the center of gravity of the focal spot.

    Your task is to replace the physical geometry model with the model of a neural network. This neural network is able to model further geometry errors as well as temporal errors of the heliostat, e.g. due to aging. For this purpose, you will use a simulation model based on a differentiable raytracer, which you will further develop together with our team of scientists and engineers. Raytracing involves tracking thousands of individual light rays. The differentiable character of this raytracer enables the inversion of the problem.

    At the end of your work, you will validate the data-based geometry model by your own experiments at the solar tower in Jülich. Together with our team, you will thus bring the differentiable raytracer into application.

    Area of research:

    PHD Thesis


    Job description:

    Your Job:

    The transformation of our energy system towards greenhouse gas neutrality requires large quantities of materials for the construction of new energy technologies. These include so-called critical materials whose availability may be limited due to geopolitical constraints and current recycling limits. This can lead to material shortages, which could endanger the energy transition. Therefore, the material requirements for the energy technologies that we urgently need for the energy transition will be determined in detail within the scope of this doctoral thesis. Based on this, it will be investigated whether and, if so, in what form these new material demands could lead to material bottlenecks.
    Among other things, you will analyze how the material demand of energy technologies could also develop in the future as a result of technical improvements. For this purpose, data and methods for the analysis of material flows and stocks will be researched and combined with possible future technology developments to form projections of material demands within scenarios. Within this scenarios, methods for learning curves and technology diffusion will be taken into account. The thesis will also investigate how increased product lifetime and different sizes of capacities (e.g. for very large wind turbines) could affect material demand. To this end, you will develop the demand part of a material system model that should be integrable with our energy system model FINE github.com/FZJ-IEK3-VSA/FINE and perform the following tasks:

    • Creative, science-based development of an approach for detailed determination of material demands for energy technologies.
    • Development and implementation of the material demand in an integrated energy material system model in Python
    • Integration of the required material data into the developed model
    • Identification of material demands of energy technologies for different possible future scenarios and possible path dependencies.
    • Analysis of possible material bottlenecks as a result of future material demands of energy technologies.

    Your Profile:

    • A successfully completed Master`s degree in the field of natural or (industrial) engineering or a related field of study.
    • Good knowledge of material flow analysis methods
    • Very good knowledge of energy technology
    • Basic programming skills (e.g. Python)
    • High degree of independence and willingness to show great commitment
    • Very reliable and conscientious work style
    • Fluent written and spoken English, German language skills would be an advantage

    Your Job:

    The transformation of our energy system towards greenhouse gas neutrality requires large quantities of materials for the construction of new energy technologies. Among them are critical materials whose availability may be limited due to various constraints. These constraints include geological resources and reserves, geopolitical developments, current and future limits in recycling, and material demand from other sectors of the economy. This can lead to material bottlenecks that could subsequently jeopardize the energy transition. Against this background, your research should focus on the one hand on the future material demand by energy technologies together with a PhD student co-supervised by you and on the other hand on analyzing the availability of primary raw materials as well as the competing material demands of economic sectors beyond the energy system. Here, the following questions, for example, are to be addressed: How much of which primary raw material can be obtained where at what cost? What potential politically induced supply constraints might there be? Which materials are only available as co-products? How does material demand scale with lifetime and plant size? How might future technology developments impact material demand for energy technologies? How does material demand from other sectors of the economy evolve? Your creativity and expertise is needed to answer these questions. The results of your research should be integrated into a holistic open-source material energy system model in order to identify possible future material bottlenecks of the energy transition and options to avoid them. This is ideally compatible with our energy system model FINE: github.com/FZJ-IEK3-VSA/FINE

This collaborative action will train a new generation of researchers to develop marine microbial natural products from the seabed to the bedside, by expanding a conventional marine biodiscovery pipeline through cutting edge technologies. This will advance the bioactive microbial metabolites to the later stages of preclinical development.

    The consortium will welcome 13 early-stage researchers, who will develop their individual research projects for three years in the laboratories of one of the project partners. Within this network, the candidates will be introduced to every stage of the marine biodiscovery pipeline, while their individual research projects will be dedicated to certain steps of this pipeline. High quality training in transferable skills will also be provided by the network. The main research activities of the PhD students will be accompanied by secondments at different sites, as well as meetings, courses and practical workshops specifically crafted for the project. Through enrollment into local doctoral schools, fellows will get additional training to prepare them for a future career in any sector of science, both inside and outside academia.

    The HOTBIO consortium is composed of seven European beneficiaries from six countries (Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, Belgium, Norway), three partners from Switzerland and the United Kingdom, as well as associated partners from Austria, Ghana and India. HOTBIO consortium members hold vast expertise in microbiology, metabolomics, natural product chemistry, high throughput screening, genome mining, molecular biology, computational chemistry, chemical synthesis, target deconvolution, ADMET profiling, innovation and commercialization. The partners will work synergistically to optimise the learning experience for the candidates. The project is coordinated by the UiT - The Arctic University of Norway.

    Job description:

    ScOSA (Scalable On-board computing for Space Avionics) is an architecture for on-board computers which aims to provide reliability and high-performance processing for spacecraft. This is achieved by using a distributed computer consisting of multiple, heterogeneous processors connected by a network. Commercial-off-the-shelf processors providing high performance complement space-grade, radiation-hardened processors providing reliability. A custom-built middleware allows the processors to monitor each other for faults and provides an abstraction layer, which allows applications to execute using the computing resources of all nodes simultaneously, with minimal concern for the underlying complexities of the distributed system.

    ScOSA does not yet provide real-time services or to run applications with real-time requirements on all nodes. However, in the context of this master thesis, we aim to propose an extension of ScOSA that can guarantee a real-time reconfiguration of nodes and provide services to run applications with real-time requirements, hence, we call it RT-ScOSA. For that end, we will restrict our interest to a minimal version of ScOSA. This master thesis should propose the design and implementation changes that have to be considered to make ScOSA real-time capable.

    In this project, you will carry out the following tasks:

    • Investigate related work in the field
    • Understand the requirements of ScOSA and the services provided by it
    • Propose and implement the changes needed to make ScOSA real-time capable
    • Estimate the reconfiguration time for the developed RT-ScOSA 
    • Demonstrate by use-cases that RT-ScOSA can run real-time applications
    • Prepare a Master Thesis

    Other,PHD Thesis


    Part-Time Suitability:

    The position is suitable for part-time employment.


    Job description:

    Ambient air pollution caused by anthropogenic and natural emissions impacts human health and vegetation. An important pollutant is tropospheric ozone, which is a greenhouse gas and also a strong oxidant and therefore harmful to human health and vegetation. To reduce negative impacts of ambient air pollution, anthropogenic emissions, for example from road transport, must be reduced.

    In a changing climate, however, ambient air pollution can be worsening due to several feedback processes. Some of these processes are changing circulation patterns, changes in precipitation, and the increase of natural emissions due to higher air temperatures. Further, climate change affects human health and vegetation directly, for example during episodes of very high temperature (heat waves) and/or less precipitation (droughts). The combination of the direct effects with the effects of increased ambient air pollution might be a challenge for human health and vegetation in the future. Despite this, many aspects of the effect of ambient air pollution on human health and vegetation are not well understood. This limits the design of efficient mitigation and adaptation measures to reduce negative impacts of ambient air pollution in the future.

    To improve our knowledge of ambient air pollution in a changing climate and its effects on human health and vegetation, we will combine expertise from numerical air quality modelling with the expertise on epidemiology in an interdisciplinary team. As part of this team the research focus of your PhD project will be on changes of tropospheric ozone and its precursors under climate change. For this you will perform global/regional chemistry-climate simulations using our state-of-the-art model MECO(n). You will perform simulations for present day and future conditions with resolutions from the global scale down to a few kilometers. Based on the model results you will analyze how atmospheric metrics relevant for human health will change for future conditions. Using innovative model-based diagnostics, you will be able to disentangle the role of different driving factors (e.g. emissions, atmospheric dynamics) on ozone concentrations. Further, you will investigate how these future ozone-levels impact vegetation.

    Your work will be in close collaboration with experts in the field of epidemiology. You will support their research with your model results and expertise. Further, there will be a close collaboration with local authorities to ensure the practical relevance of your research.

    Part-Time Suitability:

    The position is suitable for part-time employment.


    Job description:

    The broad application of sustainable aviation fuel as a substitution for fossil kerosene is contingent upon low fuel production costs. The Fischer-Tropsch reactor design can have a significant impact on the process energy efficiency and production cost. An optimal reactor design integrated into an entire process model is needed for the market introduction of SAF.

    The proposed master thesis aims to use advanced Fischer-Tropsch reaction kinetics of an development partner (NTNU, Norway). Different models of a slurry bubble column reactor will be integrated into a Power-to-Liquid process model. The new kinetic reaction model will be implemented in a FORTRAN subroutine and subsequently integrated into the same Power-to-Liquid process model. A comparison focusing on energy and carbon efficiency will be conducted for both process designs. A techno economic assessment will be performed for both processes to quantify the benefit of improved kinetics.

    Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other


    Job description:

    The Institute of System Architectures in Aeronautics models aviation as a system spanning multiple levels, from the improvement of the entire transportation system via the design of future air vehicles to the consideration of the production of subcomponents. Research aims at developing novel system architectures, i.e. considering the interaction of all elements in this system of systems. In this way, the DLR Institute is working to establish the future paradigm for the design and optimization of products and systems. Using this, innovative aircraft systems can be realized in a time- and cost-efficient manner.

    For this purpose, digital design methods such as Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) are increasingly applied. This development is made possible by holistic approaches to modeling the product and operating environment, which are accompanied by a steady increase in digital models and data along the entire product life cycle. The handling of these very large amounts of data, respectively their evaluation and especially the derivation of knowledge for the design of improved products represents a central challenge in today’s product development processes. A promising approach to make interdependencies in the ever-growing design space tangible and usable is found in the application of machine learning (ML) methods, whose rapid development has produced a variety of possibilities for knowledge inference based on large data sets in recent years. In addition to the increasing understanding of dependencies in the higher-level design space, there is the possibility of generating knowledge fragments for generative product design based on Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) techniques. Enabling this capability enlarges the potential to obtain even better products by effectively evaluating and including previously unused data in the design process.

    Therefore, we are looking for a new employee, having PhD aspirations, focusing on the identification of which ML methods are most suited for knowledge inference along the entire design process and to work out how these can be made accessible in the design process for the design of future complex system architectures in aviation in a user-oriented way.

    Your main tasks will be:

    • development of methodological competences in the field of machine learning (ML)
    • identification of existing data/data sets along the entire aviation system, as well as their classification with regard to their suitability for knowledge inference
    • development and user-oriented provision of software to support data exploration and knowledge inference using ML methods

    Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other


    Job description:

    The use of alternative powertrain concepts in rail transport, e.g. battery and/or hydrogen trains, represent a technological solution for the decarbonisation of the transport sector. This is particularly true on route segments where electrification with overhead lines is economically unviable, so that diesel trains are the primary means of transport in today's operations. However, with the introduction of novel propulsion concepts, new requirements arise for the operation and the components used in rolling stock. One important aspect is the corresponding maintenance to ensure reliable, safe and sustainable operation. In this context, the changes in required spare material supply as well as man hours, resulting from new system components such as batteries, fuel cells or hydrogen tanks, need to be analysed and subsequently compared to conventional power concepts. Ultimately, these results can be used in the system design to support, among other things, the development of a maintenance-friendly concepts.

    As part of our team, you will be responsible for the following tasks:

    • analysis of the state of the art of maintenance processes and activities of rail vehicles
    • identification and definition of suitable maintenance-relevant performance criteria of rail vehicles with different drive concepts
    • development of a model for the quantitative estimation and evaluation of the corresponding maintenance effort (in terms of necessary spare material and man hours) for different operating scenarios and maintenance strategies
    • carrying out comparative studies regarding the maintenance of conventional rail vehicles and trains with novel propulsion concepts (e.g. hydrogen-based or battery-electric)
    • investigation of the use of prognostic-based planning approaches and their impact on the subsequent operation
    • scientific publication and presentation of results at project meetings and international conferences

    Laborkräfte


    Job description:Scientist: Boundary layer processes in the polar atmosphere (m/f/d)

    Background
    The polar climate and especially the atmospheric boundary layer are strongly influenced by air-ice-ocen interaction processes, which are governing the exchange of energy, humidity and momentum. A realistic description requires the inclusion of horizontally inhomogeneous sea ice and cloud cover. Even in high resolution climate models these processes can be accounted for only by parameterizations, which depend on sea ice roughness, thermal stratification in variable synoptic forcing, and on forcing by local clouds and radiation. To improve our understanding of the various processes, measurements in the polar regions will be combined with numerical modelling on various spatial and temporal scales.

    You will work on the topics turbulence and flow regimes as well as air mass transformation during their drift across the polar oceans. The position is part of the analysis of aircraft measurements at AWI-Bremerhaven in the group Polar Meteorology, which is a part of the research section “Atmospheric Physics”. Sea ice-atmosphere interaction in varying circulation regimes should be investigated and parameterized based on existing and new aircraft measurements (e.g. in the Fram Strait region between Greenland and Svalbard). The application of a meso/microscale model is of advantage. Results should be used for validation and improvement of turbulence parametrizations in climate models.

    During the first 3 years you should follow a DFG funded project (‚Arctic Amplification‘ (AC3)) and should become the PI of a subproject. Later, the topics can be extended and can be adjusted to the developing research questions. However, aircraft measurements and their analysis should be continued.

    Tasks
    • Analysis of existing and future measurements of air mass transformation and turbulent processes in the atmospheric boundary layer. New aircraft measurements will play an important role, which are obtained by instrumentation at the aircraft and at a new tethered sonde.
    • Planning and implementation of new airborne measurement programs for sea ice-ocean-atmosphere interaction. This should be done in connection with the stations AWIPEV (Svalbard) and Neumayer (Antarctica).
    • Validation and improvement of boundary layer parametrizations in climate models based on observations. Focus of this work will be the ICON-based model hierarchy of the section Atmospheric Physics.
    • Modellstudies using a mesoscale model, Large Eddy Simulation model (LES) or Boxmodel will be of advantage
    • It is expected that after some time the candidate will lead the group Polar Meteorology in the section Atmospheric Physics.


    Requirements
    • Excellent PhD in Physics, meteorology, or related subject.
    • Knowledge in numerical modelling of atmospheric processes and analysis of results, experience with the development of parametrizations or their application.
    • Knowledge about atmospheric boundary layer processes.
    • Profound skills in scientific programming, statistics and data analysis.
    • Excellent reporting and presentation abilities and demonstrated track record of presentations at international conferences and publications in high ranking scientific journals.


    Additional skills and knowlegde
    • Experience in application of flow models and analysis of their results.
    • Knowledge about turbulent processes and the determination of turbulent quantities based on high resolution measurements and their role in air mass transformation during horizontal transport.
    • Experience with the organization and implementation of polar expeditions or of other field campaigns.
    • Knowledge about polar climate processes.

    We are looking for a PhD student for the Research Training Group 2450 "Tailored Scale-Bridging Approaches to Computational Nanoscience" for the numerical simulation of lubricated mechanical contacts. The PhD deals with the coupling of theoretical-numerical descriptions on molecular and continuum mechanical scales.

    The microscopic processes underlying friction and lubrication have so far eluded quantitative description. The PhD aims at developing cross-scale simulation methods for the modeling of such processes. Here, the local viscoelastic material properties within the lubrication gap are to be described with molecular dynamics simulation methods and coupled to a global fluid mechanics simulation. Furthermore, the obtained pressure distribution in the lubrication gap leads to the deformation of the contacting solids, which is to be described by means of boundary element methods. The work builds on results of ongoing PhD studies within the project P1 of the Research Training Group 2450, in which a continuum mechanical solver was developed, which is in principle suitable for such a coupling.

    Other,Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    As a result of the desired transformation to climate neutral air traffic, hydrogen-based propulsion technologies are in focus. A core element of these propulsion systems is the pressure tank storing the liquid hydrogen. Linerless composite tanks for cryogenic hydrogen promise the greatest weight savings compared to tanks from other material or with orther liner variants. However, the CFRP strcuture must ensure the  gas tighness of the tank. The permeation properties of multidirectional CFRP laminates highly depend on the presence of cracks. Thus, a coupled analysis of cracking and permation is required to determine the gas tightness.

    Within this thesis, an existing process of a winding simulation and a strength-driven tank design shall be extended by a permeation analysis. Based on layer thickness distributions and loads, a model for the damage initiation and the crack propagation shall be established for all tank regions. With this crack model, permeation coefficients  under consideration of cracks can be determined using existing equations. This allows the comparison of the total tank permeation with initial requirements  and enables the integration as a boundary condition in the design process. The resulting tank design changes and sensitivities will be evaluated and discussed. 

    Your tasks are divided into the following subareas:

    • familiarization with the topic and literature research
    • numerical damage analysis of the laminate
    • implementation of the permeation calculation for FEA
    • coupled analysis of crack propagation and permeation
    • integration of the permeation model at tank level into the design process

    Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


    Job description:

    Technological developments in recent years have transformed air cabs from a science fiction concept into a potential solution for urban transport of the future.

    The institute is developing new methods for reliable navigation within the framework of various projects, thereby enabling autonomous air transport (UAM, e.g. air cabs) or autonomous driving of other modes of transport.

    These vehicles typically operate in environments such as urban environments where high accuracy is required but the performance of satellite navigation techniques is degraded by local effects such as satellite signal shadowing and multipath. Efficient and safe landing of UAM vehicles in vertiports in urban areas is a challenge.

    A Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) is a powerful augmentation system to provide real-time differential corrections to GNSS signals during aircraft landings with high accuracy and high integrity.

    However, the technical requirements as well as the environment in urban vertiports are significantly different from the protected deployment area for GBAS in airports. For example, the deployment site should be more compact and flexible in cities, and the efficiency of the applied sensors and antennas may not be as high as for conventional aviation applications due to smaller size and cost constraints.

    In addition, a carrier-phase-based GNSS positioning solution is required due to the high accuracy requirements for UAM applications. However, integrity monitoring of the technology remains a key challenge. An innovative U-GBAS system should address aforementioned requirements and provide solution approaches.

    Join us in addressing this challenge. Based on our ongoing research, you will develop reliable navigation methods for U-GBAS. Among other things, you will do research for innovative methods for fault detection and exclusion in a U-GBAS network and demonstrate the developed systems in flight tests with drones.

    We offer a pleasant working atmosphere in a successful research and development group, state-of-the-art equipment and an environment with national and international cooperations. Opportunities for professional development (e.g. PhD, PMP Project Management) are given.

    Flexible working hours and an individual arrangement for mobile working are a matter of course for us. If we have made you curious, we look forward to getting to know you!

    Other,Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    Rust is developed to be a memory-safe programming language, which makes it promising for developing safety-critical applications. However, we need to bound the execution time of tasks in worst-case scenarios when the software has real-time requirements.

    In this project, we study the implications of Rust features on the worst-case execution time. The programming language impacts the flow-facts, i.e., indirect jumps, control-flow graphs, loop bounds, etc. Rust is not an OOP and more C-like language. Also, some new semantics and concepts are presented by Rust have never been studied, e.g., the "borrowing" feature. For example, the trait objects, which represents a useful interface, perform dynamic dispatching, which may cause indirect jumps similar to virtual methods in C++. Therefore, we would like to take a closer look and verify the analyzability of the developed code. The Rust compiler generates an LLVM intermediate representation (IR) of the code, which may make applying flow-facts computation on the IR possible.  In a previous project, we developed a flow-facts computation based on dynamic symbolic execution for C++.  We would like to verify and improve, if needed, our proposed solution (DELOOP) to cover the new programming language Rust.

    In this project, you will carry out the following tasks:

    • Investigate related work in the field
    • Generate the IR and binaries of use-cases written in C/C++ and Rust (the source code will be given to you)
    • From the binary, generate and compare the static control-flow graph
    • Analyze the generated IR to identify the implications of Rust on the CFG and indirect jumps
    • Compute flow-facts for the use-cases using the available tools
    • Prepare a Master Thesis

    Job description:

    The Institute of System Dynamics and Control contributes to the further development and application of advanced control methods to improve the performance, energy efficiency, safety and comfort of complex control systems. The institute is organized in three departments: Vehicle Systems Dynamics, Aircraft Systems Dynamics and Space Systems Dynamics.
    The research in the Department of Vehicle Systems Dynamics is focused on the sustainability of mobility and includes, among other things, the development and testing of procedures for monitoring and observing vehicle-track interaction in regular rail operations. On the one hand, these methods enable predictive maintenance of track and vehicle, which is of particular interest in projects with external partners. On the other hand, improved knowledge of the system states also allows for the integration of new control functions, such as mechatronic track guidance. An associated prototype in true scale is currently being built at the DLR site in Oberpfaffenhofen as a test and development environment for track guidance and other innovative functions as part of DLR's Next Generation Train (NGT) concept.

    These objectives are associated to the following tasks:

    • modeling of tracks, track irregularities, vehicles and running scenarios to represent the vehicle and track dynamics in simulations
    • analysis of measurement data from external partners, e.g. for optimization-based model identification and verification
    • design, layout and optimization of model-based observers for the track-vehicle interaction  
    • development and testing of concepts for the integration of data-based machine learning approaches into observer design
    • real-time capable implementation of the observer and its demonstration in software and hardware-in-the-loop scenarios including the true scale prototype as development environment
    • preparation of results and their presentation to DLR-internal and external partners in joint projects

    We offer you the opportunity to work scientifically within research projects and to write a dissertation in cooperation with an university.

    Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


    Job description:

    Circular economy is a concept in which products and components are reused and repaired over a long time period in order to extend the overall service life of the product or components and thus save resources. At the end of the life cycle, they should then be recycled as fully as possible and the contained materials be recovered. Aircraft are already very durable products that are overhauled and repaired at regular intervals. Some of the components and structures used in aircraft are made of very high-quality materials that are manufactured in energy-intensive production processes. However, it is often not clear what happens to replaced components and the materials they contain during maintenance or to the entire aircraft at the end of its service life. With regard to the concept of the circular economy, there are thus still many uncertainties, deficits as well as optimization potentials.

    Using appropriate tools and models, we model, simulate and analyze aircraft and their components from the initial concept phase through design, manufacture, operation and decommissioning. With a detailed materials and circular economy perspective on aircraft, we thus aim to identify opportunities for improvement not only for maintenance operations, but likewise for the entire life cycle of the aircraft. By applying this approach to both conventional and future aircraft concepts, e.g. with hybrid-electric propulsion, we aim to make material cycles in aviation more sustainable.

    As part of our team, you will be responsible for the following tasks, among others:

    • familiarisation with the topic of circular economy including aspects of environmental life cycle assessment
    • analysis and evaluation of existing circular economy approaches to identify application potentials in the aviation sector (especially maintenance)
    • identification of specific requirements for an aviation-specific circular economy approach
    • conceptual design of circular economy business models for existing and future aviation technologies
    • consideration of material cycles of aircraft systems and provision of recommendations for more sustainable maintenance strategies
    • scientific publication and presentation of the results at project meetings and international
    • conferences

    Job description:

    With the growing relevance of internet services for our global society and with the associated growth in data traffic, communication systems and networks demand continuous optimization in terms of data rates and energy efficiency. Both wireless and wired communication systems continue to push technological limits. For example, today's mobile networks are already operating over their licensed spectrum very close to their capacity limit – and the situation is similar with fiber-optic communication systems. In this context, the Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology is conducting research on potentially game-changing technologies such as Tbit/s wireless transmission at carrier frequencies in the (sub-)THz range and space-division multiplexing in optical communications combined with efficient digital multiple-input multiple-output signal processing. Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany, this research has the goal to significantly increase the data rates in future 6G mobile networks. Within the scope of your work, you will research, design, and realize, for example, a terahertz radio link or optical transmission systems using novel multimode or multicore fibers combining high data rates with superior reliability. 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 algorithms on FPGAs. The broad range of topics leaves room for creativity and self-selected focus areas. In addition to the scientific work, your responsibilities will include participation in project management and teaching.

    PHD Thesis


    Job description:The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national centre for geosphere research. As a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres we are part of the largest scientific organization in Germany. With approximately 1,400 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.For the Interface Geochemistry section at the GFZ (Department of Geochemistry), we are looking for an excellent and creative scientist to become part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral Network ICEBIO as a doctoral student focussing on:

    Reference Number 6744

    She/he/they will join an international and diverse team of researchers led by Liane G. Benning, who is very committed to fostering a fully inclusive research environment. Non-discrimination and equal treatment are integral parts of our group policy. 

    The Doctoral researcher will be based in Potsdam and will be one of 11 PhD students in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral Network ICEBIO. She/he/they will be registered as a PhD student at the Freie Universität Berlin.

    ICEBIO's mission is to train  predoctoral researchers in glacier microbiology and biogeochemistry. Glaciers and ice sheets were long believed to be sterile environments, but just like other large ecosystems (e.g., tropical forests, tundra), they are now widely recognized as one of the Earth’s biomes, teeming with life. Active algae, fungi, bacteria and viruses dominate the glacial environment and they have the ability to change the physical and chemical characteristics of the ice and snow, with global effects. Despite their global influence, many of the microbiological processes within the cryosphere remain poorly quantified. A deeper understanding of such processes is relevant to researchers interested in the possibility of life on icy extraterrestrial bodies, the survival and proliferation of life forms on our early Earth, and the positive and negative feedback that the cryosphere may have on global warming. The microbial communities living in association with icy environments may also harbour unique metabolic pathways, providing novel opportunities in biotechnology.

    The ICEBIO consortium comprises 6 leading research teams across Europe (Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Austria and Switzerland) and two industrial stakeholders (Germany and France).

    The main focus of this particular PhD project is to experimentally test and develop robust workflows and standard protocols for the in situ and time resolved analyses of nutrients - in particular phosphorous (P) and nitrogen (N) - that are produced, consumed, retained or exported in/ from particulate matter in seasonally changing snow and ice fields.

    The work will focus on low concentration P and N species and the evaluation of how they are cycled in cryogenic environments affected by algal blooms during snow and ice melting. This will include the testing and implementation of miniaturized low-concentration sensors that will allow us to analyse P and N species in situ and in a time resolved manner on glaciers and ice sheets.

    This PhD project is closely interlinked with other IceBio PhD projects and the successful PhD candidate for this post will have to spend several months/year on secondments at either AU for complementary analyses and at Clearwater Sensors to work on miniaturising low level NH4 and PO4 sensors.

    Your responsibilities:

    • Conduct original research related to in situ and time resolved nutrient cycling in snow and ice environments
    • Develop a robust analytical workflow for analyses of aqueous phosphorous and ammonia on/from glacial environments
    • Test these protocols with miniaturized real time analytical portable instrumentation
    • Conduct experiments with solid particulate matter (i.e., cryoconite and algae rich snow/ice particulate materials) to assess the seasonal cycling of all types of phosphorous species in glacial snow and ice environments
    • Publish in international peer-reviewed journals
    • Present research results at regular group, department, national and international meetings as posters or oral presentations
    • Become an integral part of the ICEBIO team 
    • Spend various extended time periods at other ICEBIO consortium partners to diversify your training and collaborations
    • Participate in Arctic field campaigns

    Your qualifications:

    • MSc in geochemistry or inorganic chemistry with an aqueous analytical focus
    • Documented experience in chemical thermodynamics and kinetics with a focus on aqueous inorganic processes
    • Hands-on training in analyses of ionic species in aqueous solutions
    • Robust laboratory skills are a must
    • Proficiency in spoken and written English

    Start date: 1st April 2023

    •  ~3400 €/month gross living allowance. This amount is different depending on the country of residence and depends on country- specific correction coefficients. This amount is subject to local taxes, social security deductions, etc
    • 600€/month gross to cover personal household, relocation and travel expenses. This amount is also subject to local taxes, social security deductions etc.
    • When applicable, a family allowance may also be provided in the amount of 660€/month. This amount is subject to local taxes, social security deductions etc.  Other possible allowances include long-term leave and special needs and more information can be provided if requested.
    Working hours: Full-time (currently 39 h/week)
    Place of work: Potsdam
    Eligibility Criteria: Candidates can only apply for a position in a country different from the one they have lived in for most of the time in the last three years. At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers should not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.

    Job description:

    The Cluster of Excellence SE²A - Sustainable and Energy Efficient Aviation is a DFG-funded interdisciplinary research center investigating technologies for a sustainable and eco-friendly air transport system. Scientists from engineering, economics, chemistry and biology are working on the reduction of drag, emissions and noise, life-cycle concepts for airframes, improvements in air traffic management and new technologies for energy storage and conversion. Technische Universität Braunschweig, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), the Braunschweig University of Art (HBK) and the National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) have joined forces in this scientific undertaking. The overall project is structured into the three core research areas “Assessment of the Air Transport System”, “Flight Physics and Vehicle Systems” and “Energy Storage & Conversion”. 

    The PhD candidate will investigate novel methodologies for the design and the validation of active flutter control functions and investigate the interplay between flutter control technologies and other flexible and “rigid-body” flight control functions (e.g. gust load alleviation, maneuver load alleviation, flight augmentation laws). The control design methodologies to be investigated in this framework will include approaches based on robust and modal control techniques.   The work will use a mid-range aircraft configuration which was designed and modeled during the last years in the SE²A cluster as well as the gust load alleviation controllers and control design tools already available at the DLR department Flight Dynamics and Simulation. The work is focused on the controller design and analysis, but some understanding of aeroelasticity may be required, e.g. to adapt the flexible structure such as flutter behavior occurs already at lower airspeeds.

    The research group from the SE2A cluster as well as the department Flight Dynamics and Simulation, which the PhD candidate will be part of, strongly rely on the close cooperation, exchange, and support between the employees from different background and disciplines. This contributes to a particularly attractive and interesting work environment in which young scientists can thrive.

    Other,Diplom & Master


    Job description:

    You are researching in the topic of formalizing differential equations (DEQ). A lot of temporal processes in the area of engineering can be described by DEQ. This can be systems such as mass-spring or charging a capacitor. You will apply temporal logic to this problem to define requirements for the described system and finally analyze which properties might be checked automatically.

    As part of your work you will:

    • analyze which classes of DEQs are common to engineering problems
    • analyze existing temporal logics for their application to DEQs
    • define a mapping for a set of selected temporal logics
    • evaluate the capabilities as well as pros and cons regarding the applicability for verifying properties of the DEQ
    • implement your findings into a prototype automatically checking a set of requirements for a given DEQ

    If you enjoy developing software and want to become a part of our team, we are looking forward to receiving your application. We are interested in highly motivated students who deliver high quality work. We offer you the possibility to bring in your own ideas and research topics.
