Area of research:

Starting date:

17.10.2016


Contract time limit:

1476686111


Job description:

Background:Quantifying the activity of enzymes operating within the large-scale biochemical network is a fundamental challenge in Systems Bio(tech)nology. Here the unknown quantities must be inferred from models that are incomplete and measurements that involve errors. For such challenges, Bayesian analysis using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) has become a standard tool.

Project description:For addressing high dimensional parameter inference problems with Bayesian statistics, powerful MCMC methods have emerged, for example the MCMC differential evolution and the Riemann Manifold Langevin Monte Carlo method. Because of the specific structure of the inference problems occurring in metabolic models, direct application of these MCMC algorithms is not possible.

In this project, you will bring MCMC methods into the setting of metabolic flux inference and with inspiration from existing algorithms, develop tailored MCMC algorithm(s). The ensuing algorithm(s) will be implemented in an existing C++ framework, validated and benchmarked with a realistic case study. The focus of the project can develop either more in the mathematical theory of MCMC or practical implementation of code for the Jülich supercomputers.

Your skills:You are highly motivated, with an interest in probability theory and mathematics. Very good practical C++ programming skills allow you to make your ideas happen and you have strong interest in curiosity-driven multidisciplinary research.

About us: The “Modeling and Simulation Group” is part of the IBG-1, located at the Research Center Jülich (Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH). We offer a multidisciplinary and interesting research environment within a young and dynamic group. The project is an excellent example for research at the interface of computational systems biology and mathematics.

Diploma & Master Thesis


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.

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.

IEK-10 - Modellierung von Energiesystemen


Area of research:

PHD Thesis


Job description:

You want to apply your data science knowledge to the basic research questions and societal challenges of our modern world? Our scientists in HDS-LEE address some of the most pressing issues of our time, such as energy transition, climate change and resource scarcity, brain function, drug design, identification of diseases at very early stages. As Helmholtz School for Data Science in Life, Earth and Energy (HDS-LEE), we aim to educate and train the next generation of data scientists during their doctoral thesis in close contact to domain-specific knowledge and research in three application domains: Life and medical science, earth science, energy systems and material science. Visit HDS-LEE at: www.hds-lee.de/This HDS-LEE PhD position will be located at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research, Energy Systems Engineering (IEK-10) at Forschungszentrum Jülich. At IEK-10 we focus on the development of models and algorithms for simulation and optimization of decentralized, integrated energy systems. Such systems are characterized by high spatial and temporal variability of energy supply and demand as well as by a high degree of interdependence of material and energy flows. Research at IEK-10 aims to provide scalable and real-time capable methods and tools which enable the energy-optimal, cost-efficient and safe design and operation of future energy systems.

Your Job:

Optimization-based design of future energy systems is subject to uncertainties that stem from the intermittent and non-dispatchable renewable electricity sources. Fluctuation in local renewable electricity supply usually can be balanced via grid connection. However, some systems, e.g., island systems, require robustness against the uncertainty in their electricity sources. Robust optimization techniques allow to arrive at robust system designs but rely on accurate distribution models for the uncertain data at hand. In particular, distribution models for uncertain time series like renewable electricity generation remain a largely unexplored field in robust design. The scope of this PhD project therefore is (i) to find efficient ways to model potentially correlated distributions using machine learning, particularly artificial neural networks (ANNs), and (ii) to utilize global optimization for robust sampling of the derived distribution models.Your tasks in detail:

  • Advance preliminary work on neural network-based distribution models for energy time series
  • Combine machine learning with robust programming and global optimization
  • Extend our in-house framework for energy systems optimization by efficient formulations and algorithms for design and operation of energy systems with embedded ANNs
  • Apply the new method and algorithms to challenging design and operations problems

Your Profile:

  • You have a high interest to apply your data science knowledge to energy science
  • Excellent Master`s degree in computational engineering, energy/process systems engineering, simulation science, or a relevant discipline
  • Expert knowledge of at least one programming language (preferably Python and C++)
  • Expertise in numerical optimization and machine learning
  • Excellent skills in spoken and written English
  • Excellent organizational skills and the ability to work independently
  • Excellent cooperation and communication skills and ability to work as part of a team
  • High level of scholarship as indicated by bachelor and master study transcripts and two reference letters

Our Offer:

The HDS-LEE PhD position will be located at IEK-10, Forschungszentrum Jülich. We offer:

  • Outstanding scientific and technical infrastructure – ideal conditions for successfully completing a doctoral degree
  • A highly motivated group as well as an international and interdisciplinary working environment at one of Europe’s largest research establishments
  • Continuous scientific mentoring by your scientific advisors
  • Chance of participating in (international) conferences
  • Unique HDS-LEE graduate school program
  • Qualification that is highly welcome in industry

  • Further development of your personal strengths, e.g., via a comprehensive further training program - 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/judocs

Please upload the following documents with your application:

  • Application letter explaining the motivation for the position and research interests
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Bachelor and master or diploma study transcripts
  • English skills: TOEFL score or equivalent evidence of English-speaking skills (high school diploma “Abitur” with English as main school subject)
  • Two letters of recommendation/ reference letters (alternatively you can provide the name and contact details of two referees)

Diploma & Master Thesis


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

Diploma & Master Thesis


Starting date:

01.12.2021


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. The goal of the work is the acquisition of sensor data, the execution of a complex mathematical analysis, and the display of meaningful results in real-time to the user. You are expected to build a full data chain from data acquisition through data processing to data storage and integrate it with the existing control application. Particularly, you will develop a fast implementation of Goertzel algorithm using OpenMP and SIMD intrinsics. The experiment is performed within the collaboration between Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Michigan State University (MSU). The working place is at KIT.

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,PHD Thesis


Job description:

Currently, primary and secondary surveillance radars, Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B), and Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) are used for air traffic surveillance and collision avoidance. Using TCAS, near mid-air collisions can be avoided even with no ground control. This is of particular importance for aircraft flying over remote regions, which make up 70% of the world. Additionally, ADS-B equipped aircraft also benefit from an increased situational awareness in the sky. Nevertheless, both ADS-B and TCAS require all aircraft to be cooperative. Due to their dependence on a working transponder, these technologies become ineffective in case of transponder malfunctions or under jamming conditions. 

We are therefore interested to develop new and modern concepts for  collision avoidance and situational awareness in the sky. To allow for this, we propose to exploit the satellite navigation signals as ``signals of opportunity’’ and use their reflections off nearby aircraft to passively detect and estimate the position and velocity of these aircraft at the aircraft of interest, essentially realizing a passive multistatic radar system. The main advantage of using the satellite navigation signals as signals of opportunity is that they are ubiquitously available, therefore providing a continuous and global coverage of the sky. The low transmit power and the associated weak signal reflections remain however one of the major challenges. 

Your research focus is on the development of surveillance concepts to enable the detection of neighboring aircraft while using the satellite navigation signals as signals of opportunity. The use of smart signal processing techniques in conjunction with artificial intelligence methods is needed to overcome the low power limitations and ensure a successful detection of neighboring aircraft.

We expect and highly encourage that you utilize your research work at DLR to pursue earning a PhD degree.

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:Master thesis: Quantification and characterization of potentially pathogenic Vibrio spp. in the Helgoland Oyster Hatchery

Background
Oyster reefs generate habitat complexity and enhance biodiversity by provision of food, shelter, and settlement substratum for a characteristic species assemblage. The European Oyster Ostrea edulis has been classified as an extinct species within the German Bight.

Against the background of ongoing and future planned reintroduction measures, the PROCEED project establishes an innovative and sustainable seed oyster production of the European oyster Ostrea edulis to support long-term reintroduction projects in the North Sea. The Helgoland Oyster Hatchery is operated at the AWI Helgoland since 2019. The associated research supports the technical optimization of juvenile oyster production and also includes topics such as genetic diversity and effects/control of pathogens.

In the season of production 2020, a critical concentration of bacteria, namely Vibrio spp., was observed in different compartments of the Helgoland Oyster Hatchery. The goal of the proposed Master’s thesis is to further investigate the quantity as well as the quality (species identification) of this Vibrio presence and thereby evaluate their possible pathogenic influence on European oysters of different age classes within the hatchery.


Tasks
As part of the master's thesis, water samples from different origins within the hatchery will be analyzed for Vibrio spp. by using culture dependent microbiological techniques (enrichment on selective media) and identification of isolates by using MALDI-TOF.


Requirements
  • Master student in marine biology, microbiology, veterinary sciences or a related field
  • A strong background in microbiological techniques is required.

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

The optical communication group of DLR’s Institute of Communications and Navigation develops experimental laser communication systems for optical data links between airborne carriers such as airplanes or satellites and optical ground stations. Optical signals are usually amplified by the use of erbium doped fiber amplifiers in order to achieve optical output powers of several Watts. Commercially available driver circuits are mainly based on linear circuits, which results on low efficiency. This is critical for the use in satellites. In order to design these amplifiers as power efficient as possible, a switched laser diode current driver should be developed.

Tasks:

  • circuit design and simulation of switched current source
  • hardware implementation on breadboard level
  • test of circuit on prototype system
  • optimization of circuit with focus of efficiency and current ripple

Diploma & Master Thesis


Starting date:

03.01.2022


Job description:

One major field of research for the forthcoming generations of nanoelectronic and nanophotonic devices is the integration of III-V semiconductors with the silicon-based CMOS technology. A very promising approach is the growth of III-V nanowires (NWs) on silicon substrates. While the fabrication of NWs of several materials on Si(111) is well established, the growth of InAs NWs remains a challenge due to the narrow window of suitable parameters. On the other hand, InAs exhibits among the highest values of electron mobility in semiconductors and therefore the integration of InAs NWs on Si is highly desirable.

It was shown for GaAs NWs that a specific surface manipulation procedure prior to the actual nanowire growth can significantly improve the sample quality in several aspects. During this process Ga droplets are deposited on the SiO2 oxide layer covering the Si(111) surface in order to etch nanoholes into the oxide to form nucleation sites. In a second step, again Ga precursor droplets are deposited to fill the nanoholes and to form nucleation seeds for the subsequent growth of GaAs nanowires. The quality of the nanowires is determined by the properties of these precursor droplets, such as wetting angle, size, filling ratio of the nanoholes, etc. Aim of this thesis is to transfer the knowledge from the case of GaAs to the growth of high-quality InAs nanowires. Main objective will be the morphological characterization of the etched nanoholes and the In droplets by in situ atomic force microscopy (AFM). The UHV-Cluster at IPS offers the unique possibility to conduct both, growth and characterization by AFM, under ultra-high-vacuum conditions, avoiding the deterioration of the specimen by oxidation or other contaminations. In the course of this work, you will acquire knowledge and hands-on experience in ultrahigh vacuum technology, growth of nanostructures by molecular beam epitaxy and various surface characterization methods.

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

Quantum communication technologies are becoming ever more prominent, promising to revolutionize the technological sector. The main application for quantum communication is currently Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), which enables unconditionally secure encryptions with security established directly at the physical communication layer. Beyond QKD, quantum communication may enable distributed quantum sensing, networked quantum computing, and advanced cryptographic tasks. Two technologies that will be essential for next-generation quantum communications, and in particular for the quantum internet, will be quantum memories and appropriate photonic interconnects. Quantum memories allow to reliably store quantum information (qubits) in matter systems, such as trapped atoms or quantum-dots, while photonic interconnects allow to transfer information from and to photons that carry quantum information over long distances.

The DLR Institute of Communications and Navigation performs research on transferring quantum information from a mobile node to a quantum memory. These mobile nodes may be flying quantum transmitters in the troposphere, stratosphere or space, with the quantum receiver being located on the ground. The quantum channel in this dynamic scenario is the focus of the research, i.e. the investigation of the impact the flight dynamics and the turbulent atmosphere.

The aim of the thesis is to identify the relevant quantum channel disturbances, quantify the impact on the link performance and support the development of a dedicated experiment. The work will start with a literature research, comparing different quantum memory technologies and photon sources (including e.g. lasers, single photon sources, entanglement sources) and analysing the quantum link models. This will then be used to determine what are the boundary conditions and requirements for a future experiment: for the free-space optical channel (e.g., total endpoint-to-endpoint loss and background light); for the photon sources (e.g., frequency and phase stability); for the photonic interfaces in the receiving unit (e.g., spatial mode and beam shaping); and for the quantum memory itself (e.g., quantum state writing and read-out).

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 un-hackable, encrypted communications 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.

As well as new opportunities, free space links present new challenges. The light must travel through turbulence in the atmosphere which causes instabilities in the link. 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 into a communications system. The light transmitted from the ground station to the satellite is also stabilised in similar manner.

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 wave-front sensing techniques and optimising the control software that underpins the whole system.

Among others, you will be responsible for the following tasks:

  • development and optimisation of Adaptive Optics control software
  • exploration of novel adaptive optics real-time control techniques, such as the use of Graphical Processing Units (GPUs), or Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)
  • investigations into new wave-front sensing techniques for Adaptive Optics
  • development of control and automated calibration techniques for adaptive optics systems and free space optical communications terminals in general.
  • management of various Adaptive Optics and Free Space Optical Communications based Projects

We offer you a very good working atmosphere in a successful research and development group, state-of-the-art equipment and an environment with national and international cooperation. You will work in an international team and develop forward-looking results. Opportunities for professional development (e.g. PhD, PMP Project Management) are given.

We are looking for dedicated PhD students for the modeling and simulation of all-solid-state batteries within the national competence cluster FestBatt. All-solid-state batteries potentially provide significant improvements in energy density and battery safety. However, challenges are e.g. a lower power density and lifetime compared to state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries. Both properties are significantly influenced by the design and microstructure of the electrodes and cells. Therefore, we develop physico-chemical models of all-solid-state batteries which explicitly resolve the microstructure of the electrodes and degradation processes at the interface to the electrolyte. The models serve as a basis for the optimization of the next-generation of all-solid-state batteries.

As a member of an internationally leading research team in the field of microstructure-resolved simulation of batteries, you will make an important contribution to the understanding and optimization of this key technology. We offer you an attractive research environment, room for your own ideas and international visibility. In return, we expect you to have an excellent degree - preferably in one of the above-mentioned disciplines - as well as an interest in using innovative methods of scientific computing.

Scientific support staff,Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

The Internet of things (IoT) is attracting an increasing attention from both industry and academia, and will be a core component of next generation 6G systems. In an IoT network, a potentially massive number of low-cost, low-complexity devices generate traffic to be reported to a common receiver monitoring the situation. Relevant examples include asset tracking, industrial and environmental monitoring, smart cities, as well as cyber-physical systems. In such settings, the overall goal is to maintain an up-to-date, or fresh, perception of the status of a monitored process, and performance criteria that are traditionally employed to design and evaluate wireless systems, e.g. throughput or reliability, may fall to capture fundamental tradeoffs. To overcome this limitation, novel metrics such as the age of information have recently been proposed to capture the notion of information freshness, and will become paramount for the design of next generation wireless systems.

This thesis will focus on the analysis of such metrics by means of analysis and network simulations. The aim will be to study advanced information freshness metrics, e.g., based on the notion of entropy of the monitored process, and to identify novel and key performance trends, focusing on the relevant setup in which a large number of terminals share a common channel following a random-access policy. The student will have the chance to learn about IoT systems, link layer solutions, as well as to become familiar with important protocol design criteria that will be reflected in next-generation wireless systems.

Job description:

A challenge in boundary-layer meteorology is measuring the turbulent, instationary flows in time and space in order to understand its structure and the underlying physical processes. With conventional instruments, assumptions have to be made with regards to stationarity or homogeneity, because measurements are either made at a fixed point over long periods (as done with meteorological towers) or over an area within a certain time period (as done with scanning lidars or airborne systems). The use of a large number of multicopters which synchronously measure the wind in-situ at many locations that can be defined in a flexible way enables new kinds of measurements. In this work, a swarm of commercially available drones will be enabled and deployed to collect this new kind of data.

Your tasks will be:

  • development, test, and validation of wind measurement with multicopters:
    • comparison of different algorithms and flight strategies
    • calibration and validation of wind and turbulence measurements in a wind tunnel.
    • setup of experiments for validation against established instrumentation (e.g. sonic anemometer, lidar etc.)
  • development of optimized flight patterns and swarm formations with a large number of multicopters to capture complex three-dimensional wind fields, coherent structures  and turbulence
    • virtual measurements in simulated three-dimensional turbulent wind fields
    • improvement of real-time data visualization and interpretation
  • conducting field experiments with the swarm
    • validation experiments against reference instruments
    • investigating complex terrain flow to determine the contribution of turbulent structures to energy transport
  • data analysis and scientific documentation

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

Solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs) are expected to play a crucial role in the conversion of electrical energy from sustainable sources into chemical compounds. The co-electrolysis of carbon dioxide with steam is seen as a potential source of synthesis gas. A key step during co-electrolysis is the energy conversion at the cermet fuel electrode through electro-reduction. This electro-reduction is commonly believed to take place at the triple phase boundary (TPB) between nickel, oxygen ion conducting ceramics and gas. Recent studies show that, due to the high electro-catalytic activity and mixed ionic and electronic conductivity (MIEC) of the ceria phase, the electrochemically active electrode area on Ni/Gadolinium-doped ceria (CGO) electrodes further extends to the double phase boundary (DPB) between CGO surface and gas phase. However, it is still unclear whether DPB or TPB pathways dominate the electrochemical reduction in industrially used porous electrodes.

In order to investigate physical processes during the operation of an electrolysis cells a numerical framework NEOPARD-X was developed. The framework includes submodels for detailed gas and surface kinetics, detailed gas and ion transport. For the model development, electrochemical experiments were performed including current-voltage curves and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy with different cell configurations. In order to study the effect of gas transport processes different gas flow rates were studied. With cross-section images from scanning electron microscope seven layers with different material properties were identified.

The purpose of this work is to develop an electrochemical model of the fuel Ni-CGO electrode for co-electrolysis. This includes parametrisation of submodes within NEOPARD-X framework, e.g. material properties, and the improvement of the kinetic mechanism for the catalytic processes at the CGO surface.

Your responsibility:

  • development of electro-chemical Model for hightemperature Co-Electrolysis at Ni-CGO Fuel Electrode
  • model parametrisation, i.e. Material properties and Coefficients for Elementary Reactions
  • improvement of the kinetic mechanism for the catalytic processes at the CGO surface

Job description:

Satellite optical communications enable high throughput data links between satellites as well as between satellites and ground infrastructure. These links extend the terrestrial network to space, providing capacities that can reach multiple terabits-per-second. The tight mass and size budgets of the satellite platform requires optimised and highly integrated solutions for the optics, photonics and electronics to reduce the size, weight, power and heat dissipation of critical communications components. A robust design that enables a higher level of components integration is foreseen to meet the aforementioned challenges.

The research goal is to elaborate designs of photonic integrated circuits to support on-board signal switching and transmission, considering realistic environmental as well as operational requirements.

Starting date:

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.

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.

  • 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;

Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

17.02.2022


Job description:

Decentralized directly coupled photovoltaic-powered Nanofiltrration/Reverse Osmosis (PV-NF/RO) systems are a promising solution for groundwater desalination in off-grid rural areas such as developing countries. In such systems, mineral scaling developing on membranes is a common challenge that results in loss of membrane performance and an increase in energy consumption. On the other hand, solar irradiance fluctuations cause non steady state operations that lead to the occurrence of direct osmotic backwash (OB). OB is a potential self-cleaning method to mitigate scaling and maintain membrane performance. The impact of OB on scaling during the solar irradiance fluctuations is to date unclear and will be the main purpose of this study.

The aim of this project is to carry out a range of scaling and OB experiments under variable solar irradiance fluctuation conditions to evaluate the cleaning effectiveness of OB as a self-cleaning method for mineral scaling.

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

  • Literature review on the topic (membrane scaling, cleaning methods for scaling, direct osmotic backwash mechanism, photovoltaic powered membrane system, etc.).
  • Prepare scaling solutions and perform scaling and OB experiments with a lab-scale macro cross-flow system powered by a solar array simulator (SAS).
  • Perform membrane autopsy (scanning electron microscope, deposited mass analysis) after scaling experiments to evaluate the cleaning effectiveness of OB.
  • Analyze experimental data and write/co-author a research publication (in English).

Diploma & Master Thesis


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

17.02.2022


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

Job description:

The Institute for Energy and Climate Research (IEK-14), Electrochemical Process Engineering at Forschungszentrum Jülich with more than 20 years of experience in electrochemical energy conversion, is at the forefront of innovative solutions for clean and sustainable energy conversion devices. In collaboration with national and international partners from research and industry, we develop solutions for mobile, portable and stationary applications and research the use of liquid energy carriers as fuels as well as their efficient and environmentally friendly production and use. Hydrogen is considered the best alternative to fossil fuels; if it is generated with renewable electricity, it is an excellent energy carrier that can be used and converted without carbon dioxide emissions. Low-temperature water electrolysis is considered the preferred route for the large-scale production of hydrogen. However, the efficiency of water electrolysis is highly dependent on the activity of the electrocatalysts. Thus, the development of highly effective, stable, and inexpensive materials for the oxygen evolution reaction would have a significant impact. Recently, single-atom catalysts have emerged as the new frontier in catalysis science due to their maximum utilization of atoms and excellent catalytic reaction activity. The synthesis of these materials will provide a better understanding of the mechanism beyond activity and stability for the oxygen evolution reaction in an acidic medium.

Your Job:

The focus of this master thesis is to design highly effective, stable, and cheap materials for the oxygen evolution reaction. The activity will be studied by conduction half-cell electrochemical characterization and study the degradation behaviour to obtain strategies for minimizing corrosion while boosting the performance. Insights into the mechanism will accelerate the introduction of low-loading Platinum-Group-Metal materials for the PEM water electrolyzer. Your Tasks in detail:

  • Synthesis of Ir and Ru single atom catalysts
  • Development and planning of the synthesis procedure
  • Electrochemical screening of the materials
  • Physical-chemical characterization of the materials
  • Depending on the catalysts performance; manufacturing of MEA based on the synthesized catalysts and analysis of them

Scientific support staff,Other


Job description:

Suitable datasets are an integral part of robotics research, especially for training neural networks in robot perception. However, in many domains, suitable real-world data are scarce and cannot be easily obtained. This problem is especially prevalent for unstructured outdoor environments, in particular, planetary ones. Recent advances in photorealistic simulations help researchers to simulate close-to-real data in many domains. Synthetic planetary data requires careful modeling and annotation of many different terrain aspect and details, such as textures and distributions of rocks, to become a valuable test-bed for robotics. To fill this gap, DLR developed OAISYS, a simulator specifically designed for the needs of planetary robotics visual tasks, but also applicable for other outdoor environments. The simulator is capable of generating large varieties of (planetary) outdoor scenes with rich generation of meta data, such as multi-level semantic and instance annotations.

We are seeking to further improve our simulator in many aspects and need your help in doing so. You will help to develop new modules for the simulator, which will be used for current and future robotic missions. Furthermore, you will contribute to the further development of the core code of the simulator.

This is an excellent opportunity to work on a cutting-edge topic, together with a great team, to get creative in simulation and see your work applied to real robots.

Your tasks:

  • literature search on possible new methods and techniques for the simulator
  • develop new modules for OAISYS
  • develop on core software architecture of OAISYS

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 analyse 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).

You 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

Job description:

Free Space Optical (FSO) communications not only overcome the bandwidth limitations of RF systems, but also offer better power efficiency, security and higher data rates compared to their traditional RF counterparts. The Institute of Communications and Navigation has developed flight terminals and ground stations to demonstrate FSO in aeronautical and Space applications.

Currently, the software running on an optical terminal is tested mostly in a lab, using flight hardware. This can lead to bottle-necks both in terms of software development and access to the test setup itself. The development of a simulator for the hardware components will greatly increase the development flexibility of the whole system.

Job description:

The phenomena of evaporative liquid droplets impacting onto heated wall of high temperature are relevance of many engineering problems, such as sprinkler systems for spray cooling, impingement of oil droplets on turbine engines. When the wall temperature is high enough, the vapor pressure generated from the droplet evaporation prevents the direct contact of the droplet with the solid surface. The heat transfer between them will be hindered. The aim of this work is to conduct a three-dimensional numerical simulation of droplet impact on a hot wall.

The individual tasks are as follows:

  • Literature review
  • CFD simulation of droplet impact on a hot wall using ANSYS Software
  • Investigate the parameters affect Leidenfrost temperature
  • Calculate the evaporation rate of droplets

Job description:

The use of hydrogen on large scale may be one of the ways to realize a future carbon-neutral and carbon-free energy society, gaining nowadays in momentum, backed strongly by government financial support and regulations. The conversion of electricity into hydrogen is a process of storage and valorization of excess electricity (as this is many times the case for renewables). In the next two decades the cost of renewable hydrogen is expected to successively break even those of low-carbon and gray hydrogen. The hydrogen may become in the mid-term future the most competitive low-carbon solution for many end applications, including commercial vehicles, trains, aviation and shipping. One should remind here also the paramount importance of hydrogen use in P2G and P2X technologies, and refinery, fertilizer and steel productions.

Tasks of the thesis:

  • Literature review
  • Explore the hydrogen supply sources and the hydrogen applications
  • Economic evaluations
  • Conclusions and recommendations

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

Recently, physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) have emerged as an alternative tool to classical solvers of partial differential equations. Based on an adapted loss function that reflects the physics modelled by the partial differential equations, these networks are able to describe several physical phenomena after proper training. In particular, wave propagation can be modelled by using such a PINN. Modelling wave propagation is relevant for applications in seismic imaging. Here, forward solvers of the wave equation are required to synthesize seismograms at receivers. Specifically, the full waveform inversion (FWI) relies heavily on wave propagators to obtain a subsurface image using the received seismograms.

In this thesis, the aim is to select one PINN for solving the wave equation and use it with FWI to image a subsurface based on seismogram data. After a thorough literature research on PINNs for wave propagation, different solutions need to be implemented, analyzed and compared with each other. Then a proper PINN shall be selected and the FWI needs to be implemented using this wave propagator. Using synthetic as well as real seismic data, the implementation has to be verified and appropriate performance evaluations shall be performed.

Job description:

The Remote Sensing Technology Institute develops signal processing algorithms for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and software processors for ground segments in order to process the instrument raw data from the German Earth observation satellites TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X as well as the European SAR missions Sentinel-1 etc. into precise remote sensing products. As part of the VERITAS project, the institute is developing a processor together with JPL/NASA (USA) to process radar data from a future Venus mission. This is intended to generate a complete interferometric Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of Venus. This processor is based on existing processors that have already been used on Earth, but Venus has special conditions, such as the absence of GPS and significant atmospheric density and temperature. Therefore, the effects of these conditions need to be analysed and, as a result, significant adjustments to the algorithms need to be made. Also, the systems to be developed must be adapted to low data rates and on-board pre-processing.

The field of activity extends in detail to:

Development of algorithms for SAR interferometry and digital elevation models:

  • literature research and assessment of scientific publications on the subject area
  • development of new mathematical methods for SAR interferometry and interferometric
  • DEM generation that go beyond the current state of scientific knowledge and span fundamentally different disciplines, in particular the following points:
    • scientific analysis of the previously unexplored special wave propagation conditions for bi-static SAR remote sensing in the Venus atmosphere, taking into account the latest findings in planetology and meteorology.
    • development of mathematical models and hypotheses for new algorithms to take into account the special physics of wave propagation
    • determination of coordinates on Venus with modern geodesy and astronomical orbit
    • determination methods
    • simulation of data to test the hypotheses and models
    • critically discuss the hypotheses and models and agree with the NASA project scientists on the processing algorithms to be used.
  • development of algorithms for the global mosaicking of individual data sets into a global
  • elevation model of Venus
  • implementing the procedures in prototypes and testing them
  • coding of the procedures in efficient code (e.g. Python, parallel C++)
  • publications of own research work
  • presentation at conferences and publications in journals

Project tasks in the VERITAS mission:

  • documentation of algorithms and results in English for international cooperation with JPL/NASA
  • close coordination with the project partners in terms of scheduling and content as well as
  • representation of the project contributions in reviews and project meetings
  • verification and end-to-end testing of the processing systems

Diploma & Master Thesis


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

Other,Diploma & Master Thesis


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 networked together. 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.

In order to quantify the performance of the ScOSA system and compare it objectively with other on-board computers, benchmark applications need to be run on the system and the results collected. These benchmarks can be run on the ground to help guide development of the system, before being run in orbit to demonstrate the achieved performance.

Various standard benchmarks are available, including general purpose benchmarks which have been used on a wide variety of systems, and space-specific benchmarks (e.g. from the European Space Agency) tailored to the particulars of on-board computers and space applications. Such benchmarks can cover performance when executing image processing, encryption/decryption, artificial intelligence inference, linear algebra algorithms and more. These benchmarks need to be assessed and compared so appropriate ones can be selected, then these need to be implemented and run on the ScOSA system. In addition some ScOSA-specific benchmarks need to be designed and implemented.

The thesis includes the following tasks:

  • Collect and document requirements for the ScOSA benchmark application
  • Research of possible general purpose and space-specific benchmarks
  • Selection and implementation of the selected benchmark
  • Evaluation and execution of the implemented benchmarks
  • Writing a Master thesis

IEK-3 - Techno-ökonomische Systemanalyse


Area of research:

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

Among other research topics, at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research - Techno-economic Systems Analysis (IEK-3) we work on international energy concepts in which the integration of renewable energy sources into the energy system of the future is investigated. Green hydrogen is considered an emerging energy carrier that can bridge seasonal renewable energy supply gaps and can easily be transported. Due to large potentials in less populated Southern world regions and high demands in industrialized countries, we also expect hydrogen to play a considerable role in a global energy trade market.However, the recent invasion in Ukraine with its dramatic consequences for the local population and international politics also sparks the question of energy security in European gas markets due to our strong dependency on Russian energy imports. One way out could be the accelerated transition to a fully renewable energy system. But how can we avoid navigating ourselves into new energy dependencies due to future hydrogen import schemes? And how can we quantify this risk?

Your Job:

In your thesis, you will develop an approach to classify and evaluate the relevant risk factors regarding country related infrastructure investments and global energy supply contracts for green hydrogen. Your work will focus on two main fields: The individual (exporter) country risk and risk accumulation on the importer side. Individual (export) country risks are determined by a multitude of factors. In order to complete the transformation of the current global energy system into a global greenhouse gas-neutral energy system, extensive investments in energy infrastructure, such as wind turbines, hydrogen storage or electrical transmission networks are necessary. Depending on the respective circumstances in countries in a global view, the investments are subject to different economic, political and safety risks that should be included in models of IEK-3. In general, higher investment risks will lead to higher generation costs for electricity and related infrastructure in affected areas. The risk accumulation on the import side depends on factors such as the degree of diversification of imports and political and economic ties between the different import countries. A concentration of supply on few interdependent suppliers with high institutional risk must (depending on the individual export country ratings) result in increased risk premiums when considering long-term security of supply.Various methods exist to connect potential investment risks with a monetary impact concerning the model’s outcome, however, due to the great effect of investment risks on results of energy system models, the application of country ratings concerning investment risks must be analyzed carefully. Your task is to develop a hydrogen-specific country rating scheme and derive an approach to quantify security of supply in a green hydrogen import scheme. Specific steps of your thesis are:

  • research of existing approaches with regard to reliability of supply (institutional quality), e.g, political stability, economic relationships etc.
  • identify critical parameters and develop a weighted rating approach
  • sensitivity analysis to show the influence of individual stability parameters
  • find and analyze energy system vulnerability concepts for gas imports
  • analyze parallels and differences between today’s fossil gas markets and future green hydrogen markets
  • develop recommendations for hydrogen import diversification to ensure robust supply

Depending on the scope of the thesis (Bachelor or Master thesis), additional sub-national risk factors in exporting countries may be incorporated as well. Your thesis can be written in English or German.

Your Profile:

You are about to complete a scientific university degree with very good academic records in economy, business, business administration and engineering (Wirtschaftsingenieur), energy economy, international politics or comparable fields. You are furthermore characterized by:

  • Interest in today’s global energy challenges and its economic impact
  • High individual motivation and taking pleasure in solving complex challenges
  • Independent and analytical way of working
  • Basic programming knowledge is advantageous but not required (the thesis can be written completely in MS Word and Excel)
  • Very good knowledge of English/German language

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 support you in your work with:

  • An interesting and socially relevant topic for your thesis with future-oriented themes
  • Ideal conditions for gaining practical experience alongside your studies
  • An interdisciplinary collaboration on projects in an international, committed and collegial team
  • Excellent technical equipment and the newest technology
  • Qualified support through your scientific colleagues
  • The chance to independently prepare and work on your tasks
  • Flexible working hours as well as a reasonable payment
  • A large research campus with green spaces, offering the best possible means for networking with colleagues and pursuing sports alongside work

The position is available for the duration of the thesis.We welcome applications from people with diverse backgrounds, e.g. in terms of age, gender, disability, sexual orientation / identity, and social, ethnic and religious origin. A diverse and inclusive working environment with equal opportunities in which everyone can realize their potential is important to us.

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:Master thesis: Calculation of long-term synergies of Phytoplankton Funtional Types from OLCI and TROPOMI measurements

Background
Phytoplankton play an important role in the aquatic biogeochemical cycling such as for the formation of organic matter by photosynthetic processes through the fixation of carbon dioxide, and assimilation of macro- and micronutrients depending on their metabolic needs. These processes are common to all phytoplankton; however, some phytoplankton groups have specific needs and thus play different functional roles in the biogeochemical cycle. Information on the phytoplankton groups (PFTs) can be obtained from satellite observations such as the Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) on board of Sentinel-3 as well as the TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) on board the Copernicus Sentinel-5 Precursor satellite. PFTs global ocean abundance from multispectral satellites can be estimated based on the OC-PFT algorithm which is based on the assumption that a marker pigment for a specific PFT varies in dependence to the chlorophyll-a concentration. While PFTs from hyperspectral satellite measurements, as from TROPOMI, can be estimated by Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) method. Chlorophyll-a concentration for three main phytoplankton functional types (diatoms, coccolithophores and cyanobacteria) are derived by combining retrievals from space-borne measurements at a high spatial resolution by the empirical OC-PFT algorithm applied to OLCI data with data retrieved from TROPOMI at measurements high spectral resolution by analytical method (Phyto-DOAS). Previous algorithm and data set based on OC-PFT retrievals applied to OC-CCI Chlorophyll-a product and Phyto-DOAS retrievals from SCIAMACHY data have shown the validity and high quality of the synergistic PFT product.

Tasks
  • Evaluation of PFT time series from OLCI and TROPOMI
  • Evaluation of different synergistic approaches for sample dataset
  • Long-term computation of synergistic from OLCI and TROPOMI (2018-2021)


Requirements
  • Strong background in physics or biology
  • Interest in quantitative aspects of physics, chemistry and biology
  • Basic knowledge of programming in python
  • Willingness to work in an interdisciplinary team

Other,Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

The department "Chemical Kinetics and Analytics" of the Institute of Combustion Technology deals with the chemical composition of (alternative) fuels, experimental and numerical reaction kinetics, and the formation and release of pollutants.

Focus of our group is the measurement of airborne particles from different emission sources. In particular, very small, so-called ultrafine particles (<100 nm), are of high health relevance, since they penetrate deep into the lungs. However, the measurement of these particles is complex.

In the traffic sector, particulate matter is generated during the combustion process and through the abrasion of tires and brakes. In the ZEDU-1 project (Zero Emission Drive Unit - Generation 1), the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is developing and testing an innovative vehicle concept for reducing particulate emissions through mechanical processes. Part of the new concept is a so-called hybrid brake in which the braking effect is largely achieved by induced eddy currents. Mechanical braking is used only in the low speed range.

Within the scope of this work, the particle emissions of the newly developed hybrid brake are to be determined and characterized physiochemically. Online parameters such as particle number, particle size distribution and particle mass are measured by test rig experiments. In addition, the morphology and elemental composition of collected particle samples will be investigated using energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) in a scanning electron microscope (SEM).

In our interdisciplinary institute you will work closely with scientists from the fields of engineering, physics and chemistry as well as mechanics.

The work includes the following:

  • introduction to the subject matter and literature research
  • development of a measurement concept to investigate the ultra-fine particle emissions of a newly designed vehicle brake
  • carrying out preliminary tests
  • planning and execution of a measurement campaign
  • acquisition and evaluation of measurement data
  • examination of the samples with the scanning electron microscope
  • presentation of the results and documentation in the form of a final report

Area of research:

Scientific / postdoctoral posts


Job description:

The Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine - Computational Biomedicine (INM-9) at Forschungszentrum Jülich develops and uses computational methods going from multi-scale molecular simulations to bioinformatics and drug design to face the challenge of understanding the molecular basis of cellular (especially neuronal) signaling processes. Because of the complexity of the systems under study, simulation approaches require massive parallel computing resources such as those available at the Jülich Supercomputing Center (JSC) at Forschungszentrum Jülich. The offered position is part of an ambitious European project funded by the Horizon 2020 FET Open program, aiming at deciphering the role of long-range electrodynamic interactions (LEDIs) on protein-protein recognition processes. The research will be conducted in close collaboration with Professor Marco Pettini (Centre de Physique Théorique, France), as well as experimentalists in the field of THz spectroscopy, time-resolved X-ray and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.

Your Job:

In living matter, a complex network of molecular events involving hundreds of different molecules, which have to diffuse, meet and interact at the correct time in the correct place, is responsible for the transmission of information through cells. All these biochemical reactions are highly spatially organized and coordinated. This project aims at extending the paradigm of the self-organization of the intracellular living matter, by exploring the existence of long-range electrodynamic interactions (LEDIs) between proteins. Energy condensation phenomena in the THz frequency band, upon suitable energy injection rate, have been hypothesized as possible mechanism for LEDIs activation. Your tasks in this context are:

  • Using out-of-equilibrium MD simulations to study the possible activation mechanisms of LEDIs in solvated proteins
  • Writing scientific publications and reports
  • Presenting the results in international conferences and meetings with the collaborators

Your Profile:

  • Excellent university degree (Master) in either physics, biophysics or biochemistry
  • PhD degree in one of the above disciplines

Other,Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

The department of controller assistance develops prototypic support systems for Air Traffic Controllers (ATCOs). This also encompasses human machine interfaces and functionalities for information visualisation to the air traffic operator.

The Controller working Position (CWP) is one of the most critical components of an ATM system as it serves as a main working environment and tool for ATCOs. It fuses complex multimodal information and visualizes a simplistic view of the information to avoid overcrowding the display screen. However, in different scenarios, ATCOs need more information, which can be explicitly requested from the CWP via additional mouse clicks and by search for keywords. This additional search can be cumbersome and might impact the situation awareness of the ATCO.

Smart system support based on the situation is a hot topic in the area of automation of Air Traffic Control. In order to create a valuable support system, it is important to assess ATCOs’ opinion about the support and help provided by the current system. This serves as a first impression of how to structure a situation-aware automated support system. The aim of this project is to design and conduct a scenario-based interactive survey, which can collect ATCOs’ feedback about the current information access mechanism and envisioned situation-aware support system.

In the course of your master’s/bachelor’s thesis, you will perform the following tasks:

  • Familiarisation with air traffic control concepts and CWP systems
  • Design scenario-based survey to assess the existing and expected controller support in CWP systems
  • Create a set of air traffic scenarios to address the research question
  • Development of an interactive application for scenario-based survey (web application with ability to store information in the database)
  • Conduct survey and analyse results to address the research question
  • Complementary literature research about surveys in aviation and other domains
  • Continuous documentation of working steps and results

Job description:

While the recent breakthroughs in the field of quantum computing have brought us closer than ever to the realization of a completely new computing paradigm, state-of-the-art quantum computers are not yet suitable for any useful application. For successfully running useful quantum algorithms, a larger number of interconnected qubits are required, and/or qubits with a lower error rate. Therefore, there is currently a lot of interest and research activity on optimizing and developing novel qubit platforms for improving significantly with respect to these two aspects. A particularly promising alternative to existing qubit platforms is to use so-called Majorana bound states. These elusive states have been predicted to appear in certain materials and structures, and there are proposals to realize highly error-resilient qubits with them. At Forschungszentrum Jülich in Peter Grünberg Institute-9, we are investigating a promising experimental platform for the realization of such Majorana bound states, based on hybrid devices composed of topological and superconducting materials.

  • Implementing and benchmarking parallelization and acceleration methods in simulation package Kwant
  • Simulating (magnetic) topological insulator-based Majorana devices (e.g., tunnel junctions, multiterminal devices)
  • Working out an optimization routine for improving device dimensions and parameters with respect to realization and detection of Majorana bound states
  • Interacting with experimental colleagues that are involved in fabrication and characterization of topological material-based devices, and with HPC experts of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre

Job description:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technology that uses the phenomenon of nuclear magnetic resonance to produce anatomical images. Magnetic Resonance Microscopy (MRM) is essentially MRI at a microscopic level with spatial resolution in the order of microns. The spatial resolution obtained using MRM is still not comparable to that of optical microscopy. One way to address this problem is to use a multimodal approach where both MRM and optical microscopy is used together to get complementary information. This can be achieved by developing an integrated optical microscopy setup with an MR scanner. An initial setup has already been developed [1]. The goal of this project is to design, develop and characterize an MR compatible optical microscope with an 11.7T MR scanner.

Job description:

Carbon is an interesting material with unique properties which enables its use in several applications ranging from energy materials to tissue engineering scaffolds. However, the fabrication of 3D complex architectures of carbon is still challenging. Additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) enables the fabrication of 3D complex structures of variety of polymeric material. Carbonization of 3D printed polymeric material can lead to carbon 3D architectures. Using this strategy, here we aim to fabricate 3D carbon architecture using microstereolithography systems. Design-guided fabrication of microarchitected carbon structures will be investigated for superior structural and material properties, that can expand the design and material toolbox of microachitectured materials.

The specific tasks within the project will be: (i) 3D printing of precursor architectures using stereolithography; (ii) carbonization of 3D printed structures; (iii) characterization of the carbonized parts for material properties; and (iv) characterization of the structural properties of the 3D carbon structures such as mechanical strength and stiffness.

Diploma & Master Thesis


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

28.02.2022


Job description:

CORREL Lab stands for the “correlative characterization laboratory” and is a state-of-the-art facility newly built at the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT) where nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and X-ray imaging (XRI) investigations will be performed on the same sample, in the same location and at the same time. The advantage of this unique approach is to gather complementary information about dynamic processes. NMR provides exquisite information about the chemical composition of a sample, while XRI provides information about the structure and structural modifications of the sample. Dynamic processes are processes which evolve in time, therefore the sample cannot be measured in a sequential manner, i.e., by transferring it between two different measurement locations, one for NMR, the other for XRI characterization. Examples of dynamic processes to be studied are: polymerization processes, self-healing materials, electro-chemical reactions, catalytic reactions.

CORREL Lab is equipped with a 7T horizontal bore magnet (similar to what is being used in hospitals for clinical investigation of human patients with magnetic resonance imaging – MRI) for NMR characterization and an Excillum X-ray source for XRI measurements. The optical axis of the X-ray setup passes right through the middle of the NMR magnet bore, so that a sample undergoes simultaneous X-ray imaging while it is being analyzed by NMR.

The main goal of the Master thesis is to design and test the world’s first NMR and X-ray imaging correlative characterization probehead at CORREL Lab.

This is a task which comes with multiple challenges related to the construction of the probehead, requiring a unified approach that takes into account optical, mechanical and electrical engineering aspects: for example, space constraints inside the bore of the magnet, the use of non-magnetic materials, the use of materials with low absorption in the X-ray spectrum etc.

Are you passionate about physics and engineering in general, and more specifically about the intersection of various domains in one single experiment? Are you ready to challenge yourself to build the world’s first NMR and X-ray imaging correlative characterization probehead? If the answer is “yes”, we are looking for you!

The specific tasks within the project will be: (i) design of a simple proof-of-concept experiment to be investigated by both NMR and XRI at the same time; (ii) fabrication in an NMR- and X-ray-compatible manner of a probehead including the sample holder for the proof-of-concept experiment; (iii) probehead testing. During the Master thesis, you will get hands-on experience on NMR and X-ray imaging characterization basics, design and manufacturing techniques, having the opportunity to get exposure to a wide range of instruments and techniques.

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, RF testing equipment, and state of the art 7T NMR scanner. 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:

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.

You will extend and improve recent advances of DL-based NMR shimming (see doi.org/10.1016/j.jmr.2022.107151). First, by improving the theoretical limitations of current approaches through state-of-the-art techniques. And second, the method will be transferred and tested on real-world experiments.

 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:

06.04.2022


Job description:
  • Extensive research effort over the last decade as well as excellent optoelectronic properties enabled perovskite photovoltaics (PV) to exceed 25% power conversion efficiency (PCE). As record PCEs have so far been only demonstrated for laboratory scale solar cells, several key challenges remain unsolved and have to be tackled in order to bring the technology to industrial maturity for its commercialization. The instability of the photoactive perovskite absorber material to environmental factors such as oxygen, moisture, UV light and elevated temperatures pose a particularly critical challenge.
  • In this regard, a multitude of encapsulation strategies has been employed to prevent degradation. Conventional encapsulation is mostly relying on glass-glass-packaging of the devices, utilizing various thermo- or UV-curable encapsulant adhesives and edge sealants to ensure hermeticity during prolonged field exposure. Despite great progress, chemical reactivity with perovskites, incompatible processing conditions, insufficient mechanical stability or too high water vapor permeability of adhesives and sealants still hinders optimal long-term stability. A potential solution presents the application of hermetic laser sealing of glass frits, being an established process in the smartphone manufacturing industry. Glass frit encapsulation is providing excellent hermeticity in regard to moisture and oxygen, accordingly, first results showed a very promising retention of device performance over 500h. However, in-depth optimization of process parameters as well as contacting layouts has to be performed in order to compete with obtained PCEs of other encapsulation approaches. Furthermore, the application for state-of-the-art layer stacks has still to be proven, current results being based on HTL-free perovskite solar cells.
  • In order to get familiar with the topic, the scope of work includes a short literature review regarding the current state of the art. Setting optimal preconditions, the employed laser setup is then calibrated. Subsequently, experiments are designed and conducted to obtain optimal laser sealing parameters based on quantitative results. The work concludes with the application of the encapsulation approach to perovskite solar modules and the characterization of their long-term performance.
  • The facilities of the Institute of Microstructure Technology, Light Technology Institute and Institute of Applied Materials (Applied Material Physics) will provide a perfect environment for insights in interdisciplinary work between physics, mechanical and electrical engineering. The candidate will get the opportunity to work in a young and highly motivated international team and will get precious experience.

Job description:

The Institute for microstructure technology is currently investigating and developing different methods of micro hot embossing. The structures obtained with this technique can be used in many applications such as photovoltaics and micro fluidics. A limiting factor of hot embossing has always been the limitation to relatively small areas. Producing molds with a sufficient area can – depending on the structures – be a challenge as well. Upscaling the hot embossing process would greatly increase the efficiency of this technique.

This thesis is therefore about developing a system for stitching hot embossed parts together very precisely. The stitched parts could then be used to produce larger molds, which in turn could be used in either classical hot embossing or in an “endless” roll to roll process structuring large (multiple square meters) areas. Besides the lateral placement of the parts next to each other, the vertical alignment and minimizing gaps between parts is a major challenge.

The thesis will consist of a literature research and evaluation of existing methods, design and implementation of different stitching techniques as well as measuring and characterizing the obtained parts/molds.

The thesis can be written in German or English.

Job description:

At the IMT many types of Micro- and nanostructuring processes for surfaces are being developed. Some of these surfaces equip solar panels with self-cleaning effects, let water drop off of them or improve on light coupling or reflection properties of the surface. A big challenge in the application of microstructured surfaces is the area to be structured – e.g. for solar cell coatings many hundreds of square meters have to be covered in microstructures.

To achieve this a roll to roll process for micro imprinting is being developed at the IMT. Microstructures are to be imprinted into thin polymeric films directly after extrusion. This process enables the structuring of large areas in a short amount of time. In previous works a fastening system for the molds has been developed and the process has been proven to work in principal.

This thesis is now about optimizing the imprinting process. This starts with the design and fabrication of appropriate test structures, the development and execution of a systematic test protocol as well as measuring oft he produced structures with optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, white light interferometry, etc. The IMT has the necessary technologies and expertise directly in house – furthermore an in-house workshop can assist with possible changes to machines or tools.

This thesis can either be written in German or English language.

Job description:

As a part of the energy transition to renewables, photovoltaics will deliver a big contribution to global energy production in the foreseeable future. Thus the Institute of Microstructure Technology is currently developing novel microstructured coatings for photovoltaic panels for the use in sunny but extremely dry climates. These coatings enable dry (i.e. without water) self-cleaning of sand and dust particles for the panels thereby increasing overall efficiency. The coatings are now to be tested under controlled conditions to optimize various parameters of the microstructures.

In a previous thesis a vibration table has been developed serving as a test bed for the coatings. The first part of this thesis will be developing the experimental setup consisting of an optimized control for the vibration stage, application of the particles, observation with optical microscopes as well as an automated way of data evaluation.

Diploma & Master Thesis


Starting date:

07.12.2021


Job description:

In Germany, refrigeration accounts for 14% of electricity consumption. This proportion is expected to increase steadily in the future. Innovations in cooling technology can therefore make an important contribution to climate and environmental protection.

Elastocaloric cooling is a new emerging solid-state cooling technology with the potential to provide environmentally friendly cooling with high efficiency. Currently, superelastic shape memory alloys (SMA) are the most promising elastocaloric materials. They respond to the application and release of stress by self-heating and -cooling, respectively, due to a reversible solid-to-solid phase transformation. SMA films are especially promising for elastocaloric cooling, since they combine a high elastocaloric effect size with highly efficient heat transfer due to the large surface-to-volume ratio of film geometries. In previous work, first SMA film-based elastocaloric cooling demonstrators have been fabricated and tested successfully. The present work intends to extend the demonstrator concept to cascaded and parallel designs to enhance the temperature range and cooling power.

Your Tasks:

  • Characterization of SMA material properties (structure, mechanical, thermal)
  • Design development based on lumped element modelling (Matlab/Simulink)

     And/or

  • Prototype development including fabrication technology, performance control and 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.

Job description:

Control systems of large scientific experiments include multiple thousands sensors monitoring operation of used instrumentation and properties of ongoing experiment. This information is crucial for understanding of  measured data and it should be preserved for a long time after the active experimentation is finished. Often proper manual data interpretation and quality assurance is difficult or even impossible due to the tremendously increase of both number and size of datasets. This raises the need for novel automatic or semi-automatic data analysis methods and tools. Recording and organization of control data also present a few challenges due to increasing sampling rates and sheer amount of stored data during experiment lifetime. 

The internship is integrated into the project aimed to design a novel cloud-based architecture for control systems of large-scale scientific experiments. The system will integrate the data recorded by various subsystems and make it available to users in a uniform, comprehensible, and easy-to-use fashion. Scientists at IPE are working with a wide range of advanced technologies to realize real-time monitoring, ensure uninterrupted recording of data, and provide sophisticated data analysis and visualization platform working with terabytes of historical data. We offer students a possibility to join the project and apply their skills to solving practical problems at intersection of science and IT technology. The successful candidate will contribute to the instrumentation for large-scale physical experiment like Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino and future dark matter experiments. He will work with cutting-edge control, cloud, database, and web technologies. The specific topic will be agreed based on the applicant skills and interests during the interview.

Job description:

The THESTRAL project focuses on the development of the first ultra-fast pixelated terahertz camera operating at a frame rate of 500 Mfps in continuous readout mode. Such a device is indispensable for the next generation of beam diagnostics instrumentation of current and future synchrotrons and plasma accelerators.

One THz-pixel of the camera consists of a THz sensor connected to preamplifier (TIA) and peak detector for excellent energy resolution.

The design of the peak detector is challenging as it has to be synchronized with the high frame rate and requires high bandwidth, high linearity and offset compensation. However, it is most important to realize low power consumption as there will be one peak detector per pixel.

Several detectors will be read out together with one channel of an external ADC. Therefor a very fast analog multiplexer and output buffer are required.

This thesis will focus on the design of the peak detector, the analog multiplexer and the output buffer in Silicon Germanium (SiGe) BiCMOS technology from IHP.

Your tasks:

  • Study the special requirements of the IHP SG12G2 SiGe BiCMOS Technology
  • Comparison of different peak detector topologies
  • Design of low power, high bandwidth peak detector
  • Design of analog multiplexer
  • Design of output buffer

Job description:

Apache Kafka is an event streaming framework for distributed systems. It can manage the flow of thousands of events in fault-tolerant highly-available and scalable clusters. The events can be messages produced in some web applications, or even events produced by sensors in an industrial control system of a large-scale scientific experiment like KATRIN. Kafka is resourceful in events processing, it provides easy integrations with event stream processing platforms, e.g. Apache Flink, and data analytics platforms, e.g. Apache Spark, as well as an API called Kafka Connect to provide easy interoperability with all event producers and consumers.

Apache Kafka is an I/O-intensive application that relies on disk storage and advanced networking techniques to achieve high throughput and low latency. However, deploying Kafka in cloud computing environments has an impact on its performance because of the added I/O abstraction layers. In this master's thesis, the student is expected to plan and evaluate a high-performance event streaming system architecture based on Apache Kafka in a Kubernetes cloud computing environment for the KATRIN control system. The platform should be able to extract events from sensors, then to load them to the Kafka message broker, and to collect and monitor operational statistics of the running cluster.

Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

15.03.2022


Job description:

Technologies like Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence rely on heterogeneous and high performance computing (HPC) resources to deliver high processing and analytical capabilities to scientific data. However, HPC resources are expensive and require special IT administration techniques and technologies that are not easy to maintain in small computing infrastructures. On the other hand, HPC services e.g. HPCaaS are provided for the public by super computing centers and public clouds like AWS with negligible maintenance.

Using third-party HPC services in small computing infrastructures would increase their computing power by folds and enhance their processing and analytical capabilities. However, the integration should be automatic and seamless with the existing IT infrastructure and should provide users with easy interfaces to deploy their code e.g. Linux containers.

In this Master’s Thesis, you are expected to build a HPC data processing pipeline that would make HPC resources available to small cloud computing infrastructures by relying on 3rd party HPC services and containers. You are expected to get familiarized with Kubernetes cloud platform and container technologies for HPC e.g. Singularity. You will extend Kubernetes cloud platform to add the 3rd party HPC services as cloud resources and propose an efficient interface to use them based on container-native workflows.

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:Master-Thesis: Seasonal variation and tissue distribution of enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants in marine invertebrates

Background
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are continuously generated in cells as metabolic by-products. An excessive accumulation of ROS due to environmental factors or intoxication causes oxidative stress, leading to damage of cellular structures. Organisms possess cascades of enzymatic and non-enzymatic protective mechanisms, which consistently convert excess ROS into less reactive molecules. The natural variability of these antioxidants is widely unknown but essential for the interpretation of natural and anthropogenic stress responses.


Tasks
You will collect tissue samples of relevant marine invertebrates (mollusks, crustaceans, anne­lids) from the southern North Sea and determine the enzymatic (e.g. SOD, Catalase, GPX) and non-enzymatic (ORAC) anti-oxidative capacity. We aim to establish background data for seasonal and interspecific comparison and interpretation of stress reaction. Besides field sampling, laboratory experiments will be carried out to explore stress responses in differ­ent seasons.


Requirements
  • You study marine biology or a related subject
  • You are interested in physiology, bioche­mistry, and ecotoxicology

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


Job description:

A central research area of the Satellite Networks department is optical satellite communications for links from low and geostationary orbit to the ground and between satellites. In this topic, the Department is the world-leader thanks to applying highly innovative approaches.

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

We offer you a pleasant working environment in a core research and development area of our Institute, modern facilities and equipment and an opportunity to work with national and international partners on the research projects. You will work in an international team and develop pioneering results. Personal as well as professional development (e.g. PhD, PMP project management etc.) are given.

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

Our Institute is contributing to multi-institutional research projects developing metallic latent thermal storage systems for energy and transport applications. The research group is looking for enthusiastic students to upgrade scientific apparatus at the institute and contribute to cutting edge research.

Molten metals offer a promising alternative as thermal energy storage materials given their high latent heat, but interactions with potential housings must be evaluated to ensure that corrosion is not an issue for their use. Depending on the material pair, a reaction between melt and container may be possible, although many melts relevant to thermal storage form a passivating oxide layer.

The interactions between the molten metal and housing leading to their degradation can also be accelerated by experimental conditions, such as relative motion between the container and the melt or the submission to continuous melting-solidification cycles. In materials used to store thermal energy through latent heat, the effect of thermal cycling is especially important and the endurance of the housing must be ensured.

A successful candidate will contribute to the growth of a vibrant research group. This will involve the creation of a positive group culture, collaboration with other institutes in Germany and abroad and potential engagement with the wider scientific community through publications and conference attendance.

Your tasks in detail are:

  • Commissioning of an upgraded of a high-temperature furnace for cycling experiments
  • Development of new protocols for thermal cycling reaction experiments according to the capabilities of the set-up and the characteristics of the materials tested.
  • Demonstration of thermal cycling reactions and creation of an operational manual for future use of the device.

Area of research:

Diploma & Master Thesis


Job description:

One of the research topics at the Institute of Biological Information Processing (IBI-3) of the Forschungszentrum Jülich is the development of neuroelectronic implants, whose potential applications include, among many, the study and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. As a question of fundamental research, we’re studying biocompatible materials and coatings that optimize the long term stability of such implants.Surface Plasmon Resonance Microscopy (SPRM) and Refractive Index Microscopy (RIM) are two label-free methods that can be used to probe optical and structural properties of cell-chip interfaces. At our subinstitute we have developed a combined SPRM and RIM setup that can measure layer thicknesses in the axial direction with a sensitivity in the sub-nanometer range and refractive indices (RI) with a sensitivity of 0.001 RIU.

Your Job:

Due to the immense sensitivity of the SPRM, its measurements are also prone to all sorts of artifacts and aberrations. And in some places, the prototype nature of the setup gets in the way of rapid sample examination. While the current state of the project dictates some modifications to the optics, hardware, and software of the experiment, its subsequent applications are virtually unlimited.To be more specific: Modifying the scanning routine of the piezoelectric sample stage and modifying the illumination light path are two developmental tasks you would need to undertake. In your subsequent employment of the microscope, a possible application would be in the studying of lipid bilayers of various compositions and formation protocols. But, and this is probably the biggest appeal of this position: as part of the project, you get to have a say in all decisions. Both in the development of the setup and in setting your research goals. Your input will not only be considered, but is also explicitly encouraged.In an overview, your tasks will be:

  • Rewriting the scanning & image acquisition routine of the microscope`s software
  • Readjustment of the minimum coherence laser illumination pathway of the setup
  • Learning and applying sample preparation, SLB formation & cell culture protocols
  • Designing, conducting, and analyzing SPRM experiments to carry out a quantitative study, the content of which you will participate in defining

Your Profile:

Scientific expertise and soft skills the applicant should have:

  • Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in the field of physics or a comparable course of study
  • Basic programming skills
  • Interests in the field of Bioelectronics and Neuroscience
  • Willingness to familiarise yourself with new methods
  • Fluent / good knowledge of written and spoken English

Further desirable qualifications:

  • High degree of independence, motivation and reliability / independent and analytical working style
  • Very reliable and conscientious style of working
  • Excellent ability to cooperate and work in a team

Desirable additional qualifications:

  • Experiences of using LabView, Python and Gitlab
  • Experiences with electronic hardware handling
  • Experiences with sterile cell culture work

Please feel free to apply for the position even if you do not have all the required skills and knowledge. We may be able to teach you missing skills during your induction.

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 support you in your work with:

  • An interesting and interdisciplinary project with many different aspects like software development, the work at an optical prototype setup and cell culture work

Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

Job description:

A reliable, reproducible, and stable beam injection process with a simple set-up and operation can considerably shorten the turnaround time, i.e. the time between beam dump and stable top-energy beams, which can be used by the experimental beamlines. Ideally, it would also allow to inject the maximum number of particles with a low fraction of beam loss and with a minimum perturbation to any circulating beam. At KIT the first steps in automating the injection process have been taken, applying Bayesian optimization with promising results. This project will focus on extending the algorithm to a multiobjective Bayesian optimization one. A multiobjective Bayesian optimization algorithm would allow to simultaneously trade-off between multiple objectives and find optimal settings for user-specific cases, which is of particular interest during special runs. More precisely, the algorithm will include the beam orbit as a new objective. The beam orbit is distorted by the algorithm creating unnecessary trajectory deviations, which could lead to beam losses at higher currents. This project can continue into a doctoral thesis.

By joining forces with the Institute for Advanced Simulations (IAS-8), we aim to study and create machine learning techniques to fully enumerate the likely molecular geometries involved for both reactants and transition state, and rank them by their estimated relative energies. This information then allows for reduction in computational effort, as well as enabling hybrid approaches for subsets of the structures. Your tasks:You will investigate the applicability and performance of machine learning techniques to the prediction of molecular geometries, and their energybased ranking. This includes benchmarking the reduction of computational cost for the prediction of chemical reactivity, as well as demonstrating the general applicability of the approach based on relevant examples in various application domains. The project includes:

  • Preparing and encoding training and validation data sets based on available quantum chemical data
  • Implementing, applying, and benchmarking various machine learning techniques to the problem
  • Adapting and extending promising machine learning techniques for more performant analysis
  • Expanding the most promising techniques from smaller to more complex medium-sized molecules
  • Demonstrating the applicability to reactions in atmospheric and/or combustion chemistry

Your Profile:

  • You have a high interest to apply your data science knowledge to molecular modelling
  • M. Sc. degree in physics, mathematics, chemistry, meteorology, or a related field

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


Job description:

Communication plays an important role both in manned and unmanned aviation. Especially in the latter case, the safe operation of an air vehicle heavily depends on a reliable communication link. This link can be subject to different attacks: Besides common “cyber-attacks” on higher protocol layers, attacks on the physical layer of the link are a possible threat. Because of the availability of cheap radio hardware and software defined radios (SDR), resilience against these physical layer attacks becomes more and more relevant in the design of wireless aeronautical communication systems.

Your research shall evaluate the threat of physical layer attacks on state-of-the-art wireless communication systems used in aviation – with a focus on systems applying orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM). Based on previous findings, you will analyse current and upcoming aeronautical communication systems, identify possible vulnerabilities, and develop the corresponding attacks theoretically. In a next step, you will implement the attacks into software to observe the actual effect on the attacked system. Based on the knowledge gained from the threat analysis, you will develop concepts for effective countermeasures. You will implement your concepts in software and evaluate their performance in detail.

Scientific / postdoctoral posts


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 1,300 employees our key mission is to secure a profound understanding of the systems and processes of solid Earth, to develop strategies and options for action in addressing global change and its impacts on a regional level, to understand natural hazards and to minimize associated risks, to ensure the sustainable provision of energy and raw materials for a high-tech society and to evaluate the influence of human activity on system Earth. As a partner in Geo.X, the GFZ has access to an excellent network of other geoscience institutions in Potsdam and Berlin. This largest regional concentration of geoscientific competence in Europe offers first-class cooperation and development opportunities. For Section 4.7, Earth Surface Process Modelling (Department 4, “Geosystems”), we are looking for a:

Reference Number 6131

The evolution of landscapes containing carbonate rocks is arduous to accurately simulate with most landscape evolution models. A significant amount of water is routed in the subsurface and this breaks down the common, and fundamental, assumption that drainage area is a predictable proxy for river discharge. As a result, the effective watersheds at the land and groundwater surfaces can differ and the geometry of surface catchments cannot inform landscape evolution alone.

We are looking to hiring a postdoctoral research scientist to study the role of subsurface water flow in landscape evolution at timescales of ca. 10 kyr to several Myrs. The specific research targets are open but could be the ways groundwater can promote or hinder river capture; the effect of lithologies of variable permeability for relief evolution; the role of subsurface flow in stabilizing closed basins in mountains; or the effect of non-uniform permeability in three-dimensionally resolved bedrock. The researcher would be tasked with the development or adaptation of a groundwater model and its integration in a landscape evolution framework (CHONK, Gailleton et al., in prep.). The exact objectives of the project will be defined together with the successful candidate. Depending on their skills and interests, the work could focus more on numerical development and improvement of models, or more on more fundamental hydrogeological work necessary for the integration of groundwater and surface process models.

We also welcome and support the development of outreach activities using numerical models of landscape evolution as part of the postdoctoral project if the successful candidate is interested.

The successful candidate should have the vision and ability to participate in collaborative and interdisciplinary research activities and discussions within our research group and with local and international collaborators. The main collaborators will be Luca Malatesta (group leader at GFZ) and Boris Gailleton (postdoc at U. Rennes). Researchers in the Earth Surface Process Modelling section work on a broad range of themes and come from widely different backgrounds. We are committed to a collaborative environment to ensure that members can rely on each other’s support. We value the development of meaningful skills and experience for the personal careers of our members. We believe that a diverse team is a stronger team.

Your responsibilities:

  • Integrate a groundwater model in a landscape evolution framework
  • Calibrate the coupled model with existing datasets
  • Anchor the study of coupled groundwater-surface process models in an up-to-date bibliographic context
  • Investigate the influence of groundwater flow on landscape evolution based on numerical simulations
  • Actively engage in scientific discussion and activities with other members of the section and collaborating sections at the GFZ
  • Present, publish and communicate research results at scientific meetings and in scholarly journals

Your qualifications:

  • PhD in Earth Sciences or Hydrology (by the time of contract start)
  • MSc in natural sciences, computer sciences, or equivalent
  • Demonstrated advanced knowledge in the development of hydrogeological models and/or in the field of hydrogeology applied in a geomorphological context
  • Demonstrated experience in a scientific programming language (Python and/or C++ are strongly desirable but not a must-have)
  • Demonstrated familiarity with long timescales (10 kyr – Myr) and the relevant climatic and (hydro-) geological processes operating during them
  • Demonstrated familiarity with geomorphological and/or hydrogeological dynamics at landscape scale
  • Desirable familiarity with landscape evolution models
  • Demonstrated excellence in publication (articles in revision will be taken into account)
  • Demonstrated capacity for international teamwork and excellent communication skills
  • Proficiency in spoken and written English

Start date: earliest 01.07.2022, latest 01/10/22
Fixed-term: 24 months
Salary: The position is classed as salary group 13 according to “TVöD Bund (Tarifgebiet Ost)”. The salary group is determined on the basis of the Collective Wage Agreement and the respective personal qualifications.
Working hours: Full-time (currently 39 h/week); The position is generally suitable for part-time work.
Place of work: Potsdam

What we offer:

  • Ambitious and varied tasks in a dynamic and international research environment

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


Job description:

Within the scope of various projects, our institute is developing new methods for reliable navigation to enable autonomous urban air mobility (UAM, e.g., air-taxis) or autonomous driving of other modes of transport. These vehicles typically operate in environments such as urban environments, where classical radio-based positioning methods (satellite navigation, mobile radio-based navigation) are subject to strong errors such as shadowing and multipath effects.

Visual navigation plays a significant role in reliable multisensor navigation, as computer vision methods allow accurate position determination even in aforementioned environments. In contrast to the currently commercially used techniques, the focus of the institute's research is on ensuring the reliability and integrity of the determined position information. The idea is that fully autonomous flying in urban environments is only possible if it is proven that visual navigation is safe within the framework of certifications.

To achieve the goal, we analyze the effects of different types of measurement errors and how they propagate statistically through the different processing stages. This is very difficult for the neural networks typically used today and hence we want to develop, analyze and evaluate new integrity-oriented approaches.

You will contribute to the development of these reliable methods for visual navigation in the future. Your tasks will include in detail:

  • design and development of algorithms to improve visual navigation with increased safety requirements for urban air mobility.
  • development of integrity-oriented computer vision and machine learning-based procedures for autonomous landing of drones
  • design of methods for estimating error propagation from camera images for positioning solution
  • development of methods to quantify the integrity of the output of the methods
  • development and implementation of a suitable evaluation environment using programming language such as C/C++, Python, and Matlab
  • implementation of the developed methods in a hardware demonstrator to demonstrate the performance in measurement campaigns

We offer you a very good working atmosphere in a successful research and development group, state-of-the-art equipment and an environment with national and international collaborations. You will work in an international team and develop forward-looking results. Opportunities for professional development (e.g. PhD, PMP Project Management) are given.

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other,PHD Thesis


Job description:

Within the scope of various projects, our institute is developing new methods for reliable navigation to enable autonomous urban air mobility (UAM, e.g., air-taxis) or autonomous driving of other modes of transport. These vehicles typically operate in environments such as urban environments, where classical radio-based positioning methods (satellite navigation, mobile radio-based navigation) are subject to strong errors such as shadowing and multipath effects.

Ground-based augmentation system (GBAS) is a powerful augmentation system to provide real-time differential corrections for GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) signals for the purpose of aircraft landings with high accuracy and high integrity. However, the requirement as well as the environment in urban vertiports is quite different from the protected deployment area for GBAS at airports. For example, the deployment site should be more compact and flexible in cities. In addition, due to size and cost constraints, the scale and quality of sensors and antennas applied may not be as high as for conventional aviation applications. The accuracy requirement for UAM applications is higher compared to classical aeronautical applications, so GNSS position determination using carrier phase measurements may be required. However, ensuring the integrity of carrier-phase-based positioning is a major challenge. An innovative U-GBAS system will address the above challenges and provide solutions.

Based on the ongoing research on the aforementioned topic at the institute, you will significantly contribute to the development and analysis of high-reliability methods for U-GBAS. Your tasks will include in detail:

  • investigating the impact of sensor and antenna equipment quality and size on GBAS performance
  • investigation and modelling of multipath effects in urban environments on GBAS performance
  • development and analysis of methods for modelling and monitoring specific measurement errors in urban environments
  • development and analysis of innovative methods to monitor the integrity of carrier-based positioning
  • development of innovative methods to provide the corrections from a moving station, e.g. from a hovering drone
  • development and implementation of a suitable simulation/evaluation environment using programming language such as C/C++ and Python
  • implementation of the developed methods in a hardware demonstrator to demonstrate the performance in measurement campaigns.

We offer you a very good working atmosphere in a successful research and development group, state-of-the-art equipment and an environment with national and international collaborations. You will work in an international team and develop forward-looking results. Opportunities for professional development (e.g. PhD, PMP Project Management) are given.

Other,PHD Thesis


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Job description:

At the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics, near-Earth space weather is observed, studied, and modeled. Space weather not only affects the functionality and orbital data of satellites, but also the propagation of radio waves, which is used for terrestrial and satellite communications as well as in satellite navigation. Given the ever-increasing dependence of society on the accuracy, availability, and reliability of satellite-based radio systems, preventive measures are needed to protect human lives and technical systems from the effects of space weather. Observation and modeling of the state of the ionosphere, which are critical components of these measures, have been conducted at DLR's Neustrelitz site for many years. Predicting the state of the ionosphere is a major challenge because it is based on complex interactions between the thermosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere, which must be observed and scientifically studied and described using modern methods.

For this purpose, we at DLR are developing state-of-the-art remote sensing instruments, including optical Fabry-Perot interferometers (FPI) and lidars (optical radars) to study winds and temperatures in the Earth's upper atmosphere (90-700 km altitude). Our institute is also participating in the European project eiscat.se (Incoherent Scatter Radar) to study the ionosphere, space weather and space climate.

Your mission will be a contribution to the development of these unique state-of-the-art instruments and observation techniques. Special emphasis will be placed on the development of mathematical retrieval techniques to improve primarily the analysis of FPI observations, but also that of EISCAT and the lidar observations.

The analysis of remote sensing observations is an ill-posed inverse problem. This means that the observed data can correspond to very different physical objects. To find the unique solution, additional information is added about the possible shape, motion, or other characteristics of the observed object. Over the past 70 years, mathematical retrieval techniques have led to groundbreaking advances in many research areas, including geophysics, atmospheric science, and space science.

Your work performance will be 19.25 hours per week. The remuneration is 75% of German TVöD group 13.

Your tasks include:

  • Reviewing the literature with the goal of critically evaluating proven and new mathematical methods and making them useful for your work, and deriving possible solutions.
  • Implementation of a retrieval algorithm for processing FPI observations
  • Investigation of atmospheric dynamics in connection with tidal waves or gravity waves
  • Planning and execution of measurement campaigns
  • Publication of results in scientific journals and presentation of results at national and international conferences

Job description:PostDoc position (m/f/d) in "The politics of diversity knowledge to understand change" (HIPP Pos #1)

Background
The Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB) is a new institute on interdisciplinary marine biodiversity research, established on the campus of the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg. It joins the scientific profiles of the Institute of Chemistry and Biology of Marine Systems (ICBM) Oldenburg and the Alfred Wegener Institute – Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research Bremerhaven (AWI). In order to advance early career development and to bring in novel perspectives into the institute, HIFMB has created an integrative postdoc pool, HIPP, that offers postdoctoral scientists the opportunity to develop their own research ideas and to actively shape their scientific careers. For this call, the HIFMB is announcing an exciting, cross-disciplinary cohort project “The Great Poleward Shift” with scholars from humanities, social and natural sciences together considering how climate change affects ecosystems and global biodiversity. The cohort will investigate marine communities on the move and evaluate the consequences of those movements for nature and people through varying disciplinary approaches including: marine ecologists, (more-than) human geographers, computer scientists, science and technology scholars, mathematical modellers, and biologists. Within this cohort project, HIFMB offers

1 Postdoc position: The politics of diversity knowledge to understand change (#1)

The position will be financed for a fixed term of 3 years (100% TVöD E13, Jan 1 2023 to Dec 31 2025).


Overview
A warming planet forces organisms to respond, triggering a general shift toward cooler habitats. As members of different clades of life move at different speeds, communities are reshuffled, ecosystems are reassembled, and knock-on effects are triggered. How can we understand these movements both through both social and natural science frames? How do we understand what inherently ‘belongs’ where, and why? What will the outcome of these changes be? How can one model and predict the change in diversity, quantify the impact of climate change on macroecological patterns and global biodiversity, and to what end? How can one measure and document this ongoing shift or detect it in existing ‘omics and datasets on geographical distributions of marine organisms? What are the politics of such measuring - who funds the modelling, does the measuring, defines the fundamental units of diversity and determines the object of study as a relevant one (and for whom) in the first place? Finally, how does humanity have to adapt to a major restructuring of our ecological environment?

How many different 'kinds' of life are there on our planet? How should we define the boundaries between them? From our ancient desire to partition all entities of life into distinct groups has emerged taxonomy, an ancient science which only worked to a certain degree to classify plants and animals into cohesive species. Since the discovery of microbes, however, it is not even considered HIPP to suggest that the meaning of the term species is less clear to us than it was to Aristotle. But, what are the implications of not having a precise, reproducible, and comprehensive definition of the fundamental units of life? How does it impact our quantitative understanding of biodiversity, and our ability to measure change or discuss native versus invasive, cryptic versus conventional, or beneficial versus detrimental?

The purpose of this project is to (1) critically interrogate our recent data-driven learnings of the diversity of life in relation to our historical and incomplete understanding of it, and (2) to understand what the gap between the two means in the context of political ecology and 'invasion' biology, and its implications for governance of the marine environment.

We offer
  • An interdisciplinary research environment with expertise in experimental and field oriented marine ecology, data science, modelling, marine governance and political ecology.
  • Career development support through transdisciplinary workshops, seminars and mentoring at the Graduate Academy of Oldenburg University and AWI’s postdoc office PROCEED.
  • A lively international atmosphere and family-friendly environment.

How can we understand these movements through both social and natural science frames? How do we understand what inherently ‘belongs’ where, and why? What will the outcome of these changes be? How can one model and predict the change in diversity, quantify the impact of climate change on macroecological patterns and global biodiversity, and to what end? How can one measure and document this ongoing shift or detect it in existing ‘omics and datasets on geographical distributions of marine organisms? What are the politics of such measuring - who funds the modelling, does the measuring, defines the fundamental units of diversity and determines the object of study as a relevant one (and for whom) in the first place? Finally, how does humanity have to adapt to a major restructuring of our ecological environment?


Overview
For decades monitoring of temporal and spatial changes in marine metazoan communities have mainly relied on data from morphological identifications and observations. With the advent of molecular genetic multispecies identification techniques, we use sequence data at different threshold levels as a measure of diversity. With these approaches, we identify many more taxonomic entities both in sparsely and regularly sampled ecosystems due to the identification of undescribed, sibling and cryptic complexes. Moreover, just genetic traces in the water column or sediment referred to as environmental DNA (eDNA) are used to identify diversity and shifts. But how much genetic material is needed to realistically represent communities and to identify shifts in diversity and structure? How patchiness and dynamic drifting affects the view on an overall biodiversity inferred from analysing genetic material as biodiversity measure? And how can we handle the „new view“ on diversity from amplicon sequence data when connecting them to long-term data from morphological identifications and observations to identify temporal and spatial shifts in marine communities?

This project aims at (1) developing and comparing strategies to reconcile the cryptic and higher diversity revealed by high-resolution informatics applied to bulk organismal and environmental amplicon sequence data, and classifications of metazoan organisms based on their morphological diagnostic characters/traits and elucidating the implications of purely data-driven characterizations of diversity and morphology-based classification of organisms from the same ecosystems, and how they influence our quantification of change, and (2) modelling what it takes to map diversity and communities in the field from analysing sequence data from genetic traces in the water column and sediment and to develop a perspective for the use of these methods in the context of conservation and monitoring of geographical shifts of species and communities in areas with high species turnover forecasts.

Job description:PostDoc position (m/f/d) in "Borders, boundaries, zones: The emergence and construction of space" (HIPP Pos #3a)

Background
The Helmholtz-Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB) is a new institute on interdisciplinary marine biodiversity research, established on the campus of the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg. It joins the scientific profiles of the Institute of Chemistry and Biology of Marine Systems (ICBM) Oldenburg and the Alfred Wegener Institute – Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research Bremerhaven (AWI). In order to advance early career development and to bring in novel perspectives into the institute, HIFMB has created an integrative postdoc pool, HIPP, that offers postdoctoral scientists the opportunity to develop their own research ideas and to actively shape their scientific careers. For this call, the HIFMB is announcing an exciting, cross-disciplinary cohort project “The Great Poleward Shift” with scholars from humanities, social and natural sciences together considering how climate change affects ecosystems and global biodiversity. The cohort will investigate marine communities on the move and evaluate the consequences of those movements for nature and people through varying disciplinary approaches including: marine ecologists, (more-than) human geographers, computer scientists, science and technology scholars, mathematical modellers, and biologists. Within this cohort project, HIFMB offers

1 PostDoc position (m/f/d) in  "Borders, boundaries, zones: The emergence and construction of space" (HIPP Pos #3a)

The position will be financed for a fixed term of 3 years (100% TVöD E13, Jan 1 2023 to Dec 31 2025).


Overview
All phenomena take place in space. The world does not exist outside of a geographical context. l. Accordingly, spatial tropes and tools are often used as a means to understand the processes linked to given phenomena and to manage them. Space becomes enfolded into a variety of abstract constructs, ranging from mathematical models to legislation. Often this is done by subdividing areas of interest into regions that are (at least thought to be) internally homogeneous. We thus construct a world consisting of homogeneous patches, separated by sharp boundaries. Such acts are evident in much marine management. But how do such boundaries form in an ecological context? How do they arise and shift when conditions change? And what errors are we making if our models impose sharp boundaries on a system that is actually smooth and gradual?

This project offers two positions to address this question from a geophilosophical and a mathematical perspective. The project aims to, via this position (#3a) interrogate the spatial modes and techniques used to partition, border and bound marine space for the purpose of marine management and investigate the historical development and current persistence of such practices, and the ways it has been naturalised as a dominant way of knowing the ocean for governance. The project further aims, via the other position to (#3b) use mathematical methods to study the persistence and coexistence of cooperation (mean field approximation and its refinements) that? fail in spatially embedded systems. By analyzing this failure we will develop better tools for exploration of ecological dynamics. Moreover, the insights gained open up a new way of understanding how space affects dynamics, and thus may lead to answers of some of the questions raised above on marine management. We aim to gain mathematical understanding of why spatial boundaries form in systems and how and when they need to be taken into account in analysis.

We offer
  • An interdisciplinary research environment with expertise in experimental and field oriented marine ecology, data science, modelling, marine governance and political ecology.
  • Career development support through transdisciplinary workshops, seminars and mentoring at the Graduate Academy of Oldenburg University and AWI’s postdoc office PROCEED.

The position will be financed for a fixed term of 3 years (100% TVöD E13, Jan 1 2023 to Dec 31 2025).


Overview
As a consequence of the poleward shift ecological communities will be reshuffled. Theoretical ecology has long studied invasion scenarios where single species are brought into a preexisting food web. However what happens when two different food webs are suddenly brought into contact or many different species are exchanged in some specific way, e.g. according to a certain allometric pattern?

In this project we will use state-of-the-art modelling approaches to explore what happens when food webs are brought together and reshuffled. Using both artificially constructed (e.g. niche model food webs) and real world food webs from data we will explore the dynamical consequences of strong disturbances that occur when for instance two food webs are brought newly in contact or if all species on higher trophic levels can suddenly access regions where another food web is already established.

The position will be financed for a fixed term of 3 years (100% TVöD E13, Jan 1 2023 to Dec 31 2025).

Overview
The goals of protecting ocean ecosystems and biodiversity are inherently tied up in how we measure change: what technologies are used, what scales are measured, which baselines are measured against, and what is defined as natural versus anthropogenic change? Determining what nature ‘should’ look like now, and in the future, is a normative practice that is impacted by how we mediate knowledges about the ‘natural’ world. The entanglement of technology, history, politics, and power all impact how ocean changes are evaluated against the rates of change of multiple factors -- from extinction rates to shifts in marine ecoregions. What is the right baseline from which to measure change? How do goals set for future biodiversity loss impact its measurement now? Who decides what (or when) is the right nature?

This project aims to explore the rulers we use to measure past natures and the goals set to articulate acceptable future natures. This project will use data from science and policy projects to examine the epistemologies and technologies of measurement in producing and comparing natures. These concepts will be examined alongside how we understand of the 'kinds' of life as explored in Project #1.

  • An interdisciplinary research environment with expertise in experimental and field oriented marine ecology, data science, modelling, marine governance and political ecology.

PHD Thesis


Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Starting date:

21.04.2022


Job description:

For this PhD thesis, you will use a wide range of micro- and nanostructuring processes combined with various thin-film technologies to produce superconducting microstructures suitable for generating high magnetic fields. Initially, the phase transitions in the superconducting structures are to be modified "by design" .

With appropriate simulation tools, such as COMSOL Multiphysics, you will determine material and microstructure properties. In a further step, you are going to manufacture these structures based on micro and nanoscale process steps. In a following step, you characterize these structures in terms of current-carrying capacity, and of the magnetic field strengths that can be achieved with them. Important is also their homogeneity as a function of the ambient temperature. You compare these measurements with the simulation results. After these initial steps you then carry out an iterative optimisation of the structural properties and the required manufacturing process.

In a 2nd project phase, you take the challenge of building a completely microstructured superconducting electromagnet. You will pay particular attention to mechanical stability. You are going to optimize this intrinsically through appropriate micro- and nanostructuring methods.

In collaboration with the Institute for Technical Physics at KIT (ITEP), you use production methods such as pulsed laser deposition (PLD), and chemical solution deposition (CSD), to synthesize the superconducting layers. Depending on the process control, available lithographic and, if necessary, 3D printing processes, will be used by you at the Institute for Microstructure Technology at KIT (IMT) to obtain the desired microstructures.

Other,Diploma & Master Thesis,Praktikum


Job description:

The Urban Modular Vehicle is being developed by DLR as part of its next-generation automotive project. A specific challenge in vehicle development today is to ensure driving safety with high safety requirements. Various sensors (such as radar, lidar, GNSS) play an essential role in ensuring vehicle’s driving safety. For highly automated vehicles (AVs), sensor technology has to meet high safety requirements as its applications extend to safety-critical systems. In particular, sensor fusion utilizing multiple sensors mounted on autonomous vehicles can provide improved performance. Therefore, it is necessary to study the sensor fusion algorithm and evaluate its performance in terms of various performance indicators such as accuracy, availability (robustness), and integrated safety. In this study, sensor simulation using a driving simulator will be performed, and target tracking performance will be analyzed in terms of accuracy, availability (robustness), and integrated safety.  

Content of the work:

  • sensor simulation of a highly automated vehicle using Carla simulator for different sensor set scenarios
  • develop a sensor fusion algorithm (i.e., Kalman filter) that computes target tracking estimates
  • performance evaluation of the sensor set in terms of accuracy, availability (robustness), and integrated safety
  • documentation of the work

Part-Time Suitability:

The position is suitable for part-time employment.


Job description:

The Unified Modelling Language (UML) is an essential asset in Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). Unfortunately, UML is based on a fixed meta model providing classes and objects only. Multi Level Modeling (MLM) is breaking with this paradigm. It offers the notion of a Clabject, which is a hybrid of a Class and Object. With this new element it is possible to chain instantiations across multiple levels. This is a promising approach to simplify the models used in MBSE and to improve accessibility for our engineers.

Your mission is to conduct your doctoral studies in the fields of MLM and MBSE. Part of this activity is to:

  • Transform existing models and metamodels with methods of MLM,
  • Investigate the state of the art ion MLM
  • Extend and adjust existing methods,
  • Integrate your approaches into the MBSE Framework Virtual Satellite,
  • Write your doctoral thesis,
  • Exchange with scientists in the field of MLM.

If you enjoy developing software, and you want to become a part of our team, we are looking forward for your application. We are interested in highly motivated people, delivering high quality work. We offer the freedom to bring in your own ideas and research topics. You have the possibility to create new projects and to research in an exciting environment. You are encouraged to publish scientific results on international conferences and in scientific journals. Working in part time is an option we can offer.

Job description:

Mobility has a high priority in our society. People want to reach their destination safely, comfortably and quickly. Goods must be transported cost-effectively over short and long distances. The consequences of mobility can be seen in environmental pollution, accidents and traffic jams, which increase with the ever-growing volume of traffic. These are the challenges we face at the Institute of Transportation Systems. We develop solutions for the safe and efficient mobility of the future.

Instead of only looking at individual vehicles and vehicle functions, our focus is on whole traffic systems. We therefore put emphasis on the interaction between different road users and the interaction between road users and surrounding infrastructure by considering and enhancing most recent developments esp. in terms of connectivity, digitalization and automation. In addition, finding optimal solutions for changing the mode of transportation wherever required are part of our research.

We are looking for a new employee (computer scientist, engineer) for the development of automated driving functions in highly connected traffic systems. You will focus particularly on urban scenarios, where you will explore and develop new concepts of cooperative automated driving. Here, cooperation includes cooperation with other road users, but also cooperation with road side infrastructure. Therefore, you will work on the following topics among others:

  • Research on concepts of cooperative driving with other road users and intelligent road infrastructure
  • Development of algorithms dealing with vehicle automation, being part ofour OpenSource vehicle automation framework ADORe (Automated Driving Open Research)
  • Evaluation and test of new functionalities and prototypically implemented concepts with test drivers on the test track and on public roads
  • Acquiring information about most recent science projects in the domain incl. journals, standards and specifications, national and international
  • Presentation and publication of results to project partners, the international community and the public.
  • Support in the acquisition of new scientific projects
  • Professional guidance and coordination of student theses as well as student works and interns.

For your research, DLR offers you an integrated DLR-owned tool chain with numerous laboratories, (connected) simulators, automated test vehicles and research infrastructure in the field such as the Application platform for Intelligent Mobility (AIM) or the Test Bed Lower Saxony.

To achieve your goals, you work in an interdisciplinary team of computer scientists, engineers, and ergonomists and you rely on the experience of psychologists in conducting volunteer studies. You will encounter a stimulating research environment, plenty of room for own ideas and international visibility. You will take over tasks with high responsibility that help shape the European and national environment. Furthermore, DLR offers many attractive qualification and education opportunities, including to obtain a PhD if desired.

Postdoc (m/f/d) in Earth system modelling and assessing CO2 removal approaches

starting on September 1st, 2022.

Project Description

What happens to the Earth system once we reach our emissions goals? And how much does this reaction depend on how we got there?
The EU Horizon Europe research project “RESCUE: Response of the Earth system to overshoot, climate neutrality and negative emissions” will contribute fundamental knowledge that will bring us closer to understanding the response of the climate and the Earth system to global mean temperature stabilization following greenhouse gas emissions reduction, with or without overshoot. RESCUE will also assess the potential role of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) in reducing net greenhouse gas emissions as well as its environmental impacts, side effects and potential co-benefits.

Job Description

Initial work will involve running a state-of-the-art Earth system model (FOCI) to simulate temperature stabilization scenarios with and without overshoot to assess the climate dynamics and carbon cycle response of these different scenarios. The scientist is expected to explicitly implement four core carbon dioxide removal measures (ocean alkalinity enhancement, direct air carbon removal and storage, bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, afforestation) into FOCI. This will be done in collaboration with external partners with expertise in terrestrial modelling. A special focus of the analysis lies on efficiency, feedbacks and reversibility especially in the context of carbon cycle components. The candidate is expected to collaborate with other Earth system modelers as well as integrated assessment modelers.

Publishing results and contributing to interdisciplinary publications, reports, and synthesis products is expected.

Qualification

We are looking for a creative and committed scientist with PhD in a natural sciences subject and extensive knowledge of physical and/or biogeochemical modelling or Earth system modelling. Knowledge of carbon dioxide removal approaches and their assessment will be beneficial. Experience in working as part of an interdisciplinary team or with integrated assessment scenarios would be helpful.

Required:

  • A PhD in natural science subject
  • Experience in physical and/or biogeochemical modelling or Earth system modelling
  • Good knowledge of the global carbon-climate dynamics and associated feedbacks
  • Willingness to work with external partners and experience presenting results at international conferences
  • Excellent English language skills (oral and written)

Desired qualifications:

  • Experience in working with an interdisciplinary team
  • Experience with simulating climate change scenarios designed by integrated assessment models
  • Experience investigating carbon dioxide removal approaches (especially terrestrial CDR)

The position is available for a funding period of three years. The salary depends on qualification and could be up to the class 13 TVöD-Bund of the German tariff for public employees. This is a full-time position. The position is basically divisible. Flexible working time models are possible in principle.

Scientific / postdoctoral posts,Other


Job description:Located at the Institute of Data Science in Jena, the group “Metadata Management” develops innovative methods for gathering and processing semantically annotated metadata. A further focus is given by the exploitation of such interlinked data from various sources. An ever-growing amount of heterogeneous data increasingly poses significant challenges to researches when trying to identify and reuse existing data for new projects. Based on the FAIR-criteria and domain-specific knowledge graphs we want to develop new solutions to cope with this data deluge and to help researchers of all domains access previously hidden treasures. The position holder will develop innovative methods and approaches allowing experts to maintain and extend domain-specific knowledge graphs without requiring extensive support by data engineers. On the one hand, the results have to provide intuitive interfaces for domain experts. These experts often do not have prior experience with knowledge modelling but should still be able to independently adjust the knowledge graphs to new developments in their respective domains (e.g., by adding new concepts or via interlinking with other knowledge graphs). On the other hand, the consistency of well-formed knowledge graphs is of utmost importance which requires extensive skills in structuring and modelling knowledge. The goal of this project is to bridge this gap, e.g., by using suitable assistance systems empowering domain experts themselves to drive the development of their knowledge graphs without losing out on the quality of those graphs. The position is embedded in multiple existing projects with various partners both within the DLR itself (e.g., from the areas of space and transport) as well as beyond (e.g., with the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy). Your tasks include:
  • literature survey and identification of current trends in the evolution of knowledge graphs
  • identification and preparation of scientific challenges related to supporting users in knowledge graph maintenance
  • development and evaluation of assistance systems (e.g., recommender or user guidance systems) to allow users without prior experience to continuously enhance existing knowledge graphs

Scientific / postdoctoral posts


Starting date:

28.04.2022


Job description:

The position will be embedded into a highly collaborative research team, well connected to national and international networks and activities in the field of opportunistic sensing (e.g. opensenseaction.eu/), sensor data quality control and AI applications (https://www.helmholtz.ai/). We are committed to open-source software and FAIR research. Our offices at KIT-Campus Alpin (IMK-IFU) are located at the foothill of the Alps and offer a multi-disciplinary research environment with excellent research infrastructure (including an own HPC cluster with GPUs).

We are seeking for a researcher with a strong background in data science and deep learning. The position will be part of the project “RESEAD - Robust Environmental Sensor data using Explainable data-driven Anomaly Detection”, which is funded within the Helmholtz AI project call 2021 and coordinated by the Regional Climate and Hydrology Group climhydro.imk-ifu.kit.edu/english at KIT’s Campus Alpin (IMK-IFU). It is carried out in close collaboration with the Data Initiative www.imk-ifu.kit.edu/english/datainitiative.php at Campus Alpin (IMK-IFU) and the department for Environmental Sensor and Information Systems at the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research UFZ www.ufz.de/index.php.

The project and your tasks

The goal of the project RESEAD is to substantially improve the automated quality control of environmental sensor data. This task is becoming more and more challenging, and at the same time more and more important, with the increasing amount of observational data, also coming from the growing number of low-cost and opportunistic environmental sensors. Within RESEAD we will tackle this challenge by developing a combination of neural networks for feature embedding, ensemble imputation of missing data and detection of periods of low data quality, combined with an implementation to allow for the explainability of the classification. Your main tasks will be:

1) Development of a dense embedding of spatio-temporal information from multiple sensors

2) Deep generative modeling for probabilistic missing data imputation

3) Deep time-series segmentation and classification for automated sensor quality control

The partners from UFZ will work on the explainability of the classification and will lead the sustainable technical implementation (CI, containerization, interfaces) of all parts. Within the project we will mainly work with specific sensor data from KIT and UFZ, and, in particular, commercial microwave link attenuation data for rainfall estimation as well as SoilNet soil moisture sensor data. We strive to create a solution that is generic and allows applications beyond this project to a wider range of environmental sensor data.
