part-time employment may be possible

Working field:

Double face grinding with planetary kinematics (DPMP) is a manufacturing process for the machining of components with high requirements in terms of surface quality and plane parallelism, such as wafers. To ensure the challenging quality demands and maximise productivity, the used grinding wheels must be conditioned depending on the engagement conditions during grinding. Within a project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the conditioning process and its interactions with the grinding process as well as the grinding results are being analysed.
  • research in the field of machining with geometrically undefined cutting edge, specifically in the area of grinding technology
  • experimental investigations of the dressing and cleaning process of the grinding wheels in double face grinding with planetary kinematics (DPMP)
  • analysis of the causal effects for the formation of the grinding wheel topography depending on the process parameters
  • analysis of the transferability of the gained findings on conditioning at DPMP to path-controlled grinding processes
  • process modelling based on experimental results for the purpose of designing optimised conditioning process
  • independent planning, execution, and evaluation of research work
  • in addition to operational work, the tasks also include the coordination of further research tasks, communication with project partners
  • presentation of results at milestone and final meetings and at international conferences


  • successfully completed scientific university studies (Diplom, Master or equivalent) in mechanical engineering or related engineering sciences.
  • advanced knowledge of production engineering and materials science
  • knowledge in regard to machining technology in particular grinding technology desirable
  • good knowledge of programming languages such as Python or Matlab
  • experience in the field of experiment design, in the operation of CNC machine tools as well as measuring and control technology desirable
  • experience in the field of project management
  • independent, systematic and structured way of working
  • advanced skills in written and spoken English, German at least C1
