Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty III - Insti­tute of Chem­ical and Pro­cess Engin­eer­ing / Pro­cess Dynam­ics and Oper­a­tions Group

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 an excit­ing new pro­ject (gran­ted DFG pro­ject) on exper­i­men­tal chara­ter­iz­a­tion of the Rayl­eigh-Tay­lor Insta­bil­it­ies (RTI) in han­ging film flows for var­ied sur­face geo­met­ries. The goal is to resolve and quan­tify cor­rel­a­tions of sur­face geo­met­ries and devel­op­ing RTIs.
Spe­cific tasks wit­hin the pro­ject are:
  • Exten­sion of an exist­ing test stand for chara­ter­iz­a­tion of han­ging film flows
  • Exper­i­men­tal invest­ig­a­tions using the method of Light Indu­ced Fluor­es­cence to cap­ture film thick­ness
  • Devel­op­ment of advan­ced data pro­ces­sing algo­rithms in Mat­lab, Python etc.
  • Devel­op­ment of empri­cial model for­mu­la­tions based on exper­i­men­tal data

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


  • suc­cess­fully com­ple­ted uni­ver­sity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in energy and pro­cess engin­eer­ing, mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing (focus fluid mech­an­ics) or alike; above aver­age degree desi­red
  • know­ledge on fluid dynam­ics, ther­mo­dy­nam­ics, energy and mass trans­fer phe­nom­ena, as well as respect­ive mod­el­ling
  • know­ledge on opti­cal meas­ure­ment meth­ods, such as LIF and PIV, as well as exper­i­ence in design and oper­a­tion of test stands is highly wel­come
  • ide­ally you pro­vide pro­found pro­gram­ming skills in Mat­lab or Python
  • Good com­mand of Ger­man and/or Eng­lish requi­red; the will­ing­ness to learn eit­her Eng­lish or Ger­man is expec­ted
