Research assist­ant - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

Work­ing field:

The research assist­ant will work within the pro­ject “eHaul: elec­tri­fic­a­tion of long haul heavy-duty com­mer­cial vehicles with auto­mated bat­tery swap­ping sta­tions” as a part of a team encom­passing uni­versity part­ners as well as the industry part­ners. The eHaul pro­ject aims at build­ing a bat­tery swap­ping sta­tion in the out­skirts of Ber­lin within the pro­ject dur­a­tion and use it for long-haul logist­ics. The research assist­ant will be loc­ated with the Smart Mobil­ity Sys­tems research group ( at TU Ber­lin and work as a team with other sci­entific staff in the pro­ject.

The can­did­ate will research on the char­ging infra­struc­ture for swap­pable bat­ter­ies in long-haul com­mer­cial vehicles. The can­did­ate will engage in a dis­cus­sion with the industry part­ners of the pro­ject to pro­cure the suit­able char­ging equip­ment and ensure that the require­ments of the swap­ping sta­tion from the per­spect­ive of the elec­trical sys­tem are met. The can­did­ate is also encour­aged to act­ively inter­act with other research insti­tu­tions to par­ti­cip­ate in the ana­lysis of the data acquired dur­ing the oper­a­tion of the pro­ject and per­form research.
