Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty V - Insti­tute of Machine Tools and Fact­ory Man­age­ment / Chair of Assembly and Hand­ling Tech­no­logy

Research assist­ant - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

Work­ing field:

As a research assist­ant at the Chair of Hand­ling and Assembly Tech­no­logy, you stand for a value stream ana­lysis in man­u­fac­tur­ing. The focus of the chair is resource plan­ning, flex­ible assembly auto­ma­tion and the pro­cess-ori­ented devel­op­ment and estab­lish­ment of tech­no­lo­gical an organ­isa­tional improve­ment.
The team is cur­rently look­ing for sup­port in the area of data ana­lysis in a research pro­ject with sev­eral indus­trial and research part­ners. The pro­ject deals with used products which are returned and need to be iden­ti­fied and eval­u­ated. The aim is to sup­port employ­ees with digital assist­ance sys­tems in real time. The sys­tem should ana­lyse avail­able data to provide decision sup­port and to reduce error rates and lead times.
You will be respons­ible for the achieve­ment of sci­entific goals and the organ­isa­tion of the pro­ject. There­fore, you com­mu­nic­ate with pro­ject part­ners and spon­sors, define deliv­er­ables and work to achieve them.
From a man­u­fac­tur­ing engin­eer­ing per­spect­ive, you develop a concept for bet­ter product iden­ti­fic­a­tion by a worker based on avail­able sys­tem inform­a­tion. You imple­ment and test this concept at some work­sta­tions of the indus­trial part­ners. With your exper­i­ence in the area of human-sys­tem inter­faces, you will con­trib­ute to design a user-friendly and eas­ily con­fig­ur­able sys­tem. You will rep­res­ent the pro­ject and the chair region­ally and inter­na­tion­ally in order to dis­sem­in­ate the pro­ject res­ults. As a valu­able mem­ber you will act­ively lead to the fur­ther devel­op­ment of the chair based on your per­son­al­ity, know-how and exper­i­ence.


  • suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­loma or equi­val­ent) in pro­duc­tion tech­no­logy or mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing with pro­duc­tion-related focus
  • know­ledge in arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI), machine learn­ing or a related field
  • exper­i­ences in design­ing assist­ance for pre­defined and com­plex tasks that can be adjus­ted to the users know­ledge and exper­i­ence
  • exper­i­ence in pro­to­typ­ical imple­ment­a­tion and super­vi­sion of exper­i­mental test-beds
  • know­ledge in sus­tain­able man­u­fac­tur­ing, espe­cially reverse logist­ics are desired
Fur­ther Require­ments:
  • will­ing to intensely par­ti­cip­ate in fur­ther devel­op­ment of the research area at the depart­ment
  • pro­act­ive learner and maker men­tal­ity com­bined with design think­ing skills
  • high level of abil­ity for self-organ­iz­a­tion and tak­ing respons­ib­il­ity
  • motiv­ated approach to work
  • high abil­ity to com­mu­nic­ate and work in teams
