Research Assistant - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

under the reserve that funds are granted - part-time employment may be possible

Working field:

The Process Dynamics and Operations Group is looking for a new colleague for participation in an exciting new research project on development and testing of a new process for CO2-absorption using rotating packed beds (RPB). The project is carried out in cooperation with industrial partners, testing the process on-site in industrial environments. A mobile mini-plant is to be planned, constructed, and integrated into an existing industrial scale process. Using long-term experimental campaigns, the dynamic operation behavior and CO2 separation efficiency of RPB are to be evaluated. Using experimental results, suitable model structures for RPB are to be developed.

Specific tasks within the project are:
  • Design, sizing, and construction of a mobile mini-plant for CO2-absorption using RPB and programming of process control systems
  • Integration of the mini-plant into an existing industrial scale process at the site of a German industrial partner
  • Long-term operation campaign at the site of the industrial partner
  • Development and improvement of suitable process models for describing the dynamic process behavior of RPB
  • Test of hybrid processes combining RPB and conventional packed columns for CO2-absorption
  • Development of strategies for optimal process operation

The department is based in chemical engineering, but candidates from other engineering disciplines and backgrounds are always welcome. Regarding the described position, we are interested in colleagues with the following qualifications:


  • Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in a suitable discipline (Process Engineering, Chemical Engineering or similar)
  • Excellent knowledge in chemical engineering, particularly on thermal separation processes and fluid dynamics
  • Required are experiences in design and operation of experimental test stands or mini-plants
  • Ideally you provide knowledge on process control systems and process automatization
  • Knowledge on process modeling of chemical engineering systems is welcome
  • We are a very international team. Hence, language skills in English are always of help and we expect you to be willing to learn German
  • Autonomous, well organized applicants are preferred
