Research assistant - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen
part-time employment may be possible
Conduct research as part of an international network within the project "Additively manufactured PLA-continuous fibre reinforced PLA-Composite for rural farming". Your key tasks will be:
Manufacturing of novel fibre reinforced plastic filaments for 3D printing using extrusion (in cooperation with the Dept. for Polymer Technology),
3D-printing (FDM) of test specimens using the novel filament,
Planning and conducting tensile experiments for material characterization,
Analytical and numerical modeling of the composite material (in cooperation with Uppsala Universitet),
Life-Cycle-Assessment (LCA) and analyses of recycling potentials as well as local needs for applications in rural farming in the context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (in cooperation with MichiganTech),
CAD modeling and possibly structural simulations of devices made from the novel material,
Discussion and further development of the project's guiding questions in the international team.
successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in engineering (mechanical engineering, materials engineering or similar).
Applicants should be able to work independently and as part as a team.
Spoken and written English on a high level is strictly necessary; good german language skills.
An interdisciplinary focus and interest in societal issues are explicitly welcome.
Ideally, applicants have initial experience in LCA, sustainable product development or similar areas.
Experience in mechanical modeling of materials and simulations is an advantage.
