Research Assist­ant - 0.75 work­ing time - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len - 1st qual­i­fic­a­tion period (PhD can­did­ate)

Work­ing field:

For rein­for­cing our team we are look­ing for a com­mit­ted research assist­ant with strong interest in research and teach­ing in mater­i­als sci­ence.
Our research com­prises the devel­op­ment of hier­arch­ic­ally struc­tured mater­i­als and the char­ac­ter­isa­tion of struc­ture/mech­an­ical-prop­erty rela­tion­ships on dif­fer­ent length-scales. We focus on com­plex load­ing com­bin­a­tions, espe­cially fatigue. Spe­cific­ally, we are look­ing for a per­son­al­ity aim­ing at a doc­toral degree (Dr.-Ing. or Dr. rer. nat.) and inter­ested in bio­lo­gical and bio-inspired mater­i­als. Spe­cific­ally the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate should be inter­ested in invest­ig­at­ing the rela­tion­ship between micro­struc­ture and mech­an­ical prop­er­ties of nat­ural foamy mater­i­als, e.g. nut­shells and tree fungi, on dif­fer­ent length scales. Bio-inspired mater­i­als based on these tis­sues are pos­sibly integ­rated in the work.
As part of the research work, the depart­ment shall be rep­res­en­ted on national and inter­na­tional con­fer­ences, and the res­ults shall be pub­lished in renowned journ­als. The researcher is fur­ther respons­ible for the used machines and equip­ment.
The depart­ment offers a vari­ety of bach­elor and mas­ter courses for mater­i­als sci­ence and engin­eer­ing stu­dents, e.g. ”Mater­i­als Sci­ence“, ”Mater­i­als Selec­tion“, ”Fatigue“, or ”Bioin­spired Mater­i­als“. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will inde­pend­ently super­vise lab-courses, advise stu­dents, and sup­port the teach­ing admin­is­tra­tion. Fur­ther­more, the engaged and qual­i­fied super­vi­sion of bach­elor and mas­ter theses is expec­ted.
The future team mem­ber shall fur­ther take part in admin­is­trat­ive, organ­isa­tional and pub­lic rela­tion tasks within the depart­ment.


  • Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in mater­i­als sci­ence, mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing or sim­ilar dis­cip­lines;
  • keen interest and skill in the devel­op­ment and design of non-stand­ard test­ing set-ups and deep know­ledge of micro­struc­tural and mech­an­ical char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion meth­ods;
  • exper­i­ence and tal­ent in per­form­ing sci­entific exper­i­ments;
  • struc­tured work­ing, organ­isa­tional skills and good time man­age­ment;
  • abil­ity and keen interest to work in an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary, inter­cul­tural team, sense of respons­ib­il­ity and reli­ab­il­ity;
  • very good know­ledge of Ger­man and Eng­lish in writ­ing and speak­ing, so that courses can be given in both lan­guages;
  • excel­lent skills in writ­ing sci­entific texts and in present­ing and dis­cuss­ing sci­entific res­ults (in Eng­lish)
Advant­age­ous qual­i­fic­a­tions:
  • teach­ing exper­i­ence, interest in diversity top­ics and new teach­ing meth­ods;
  • know­ledge of the micro­struc­ture/mech­an­ical-prop­erty-rela­tion­ships of bio­lo­gical mater­i­als.

How to ap­ply:

Please send your writ­ten applic­a­tion with the ref­er­ence num­ber III-65/20 and the usual doc­u­ments to Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin - Der Präsid­ent - Fak­ultät III, Insti­tut für Werkstoffwis­senschaften und –tech­no­lo­gien, FG Werkstoff­tech­nik, Prof. Dr. Claudia Fleck, Sekr. EB 13, Straße des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Ber­lin or by e-mail (in one pdf-doc­u­ment) to Please note the ref­er­ence num­ber, and one or two of the top­ics lis­ted above that you are most inter­ested in.

To ensure equal oppor­tun­it­ies between women and men, applic­a­tions by women with the required qual­i­fic­a­tions are expli­citly desired. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored. The TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to the goals of equal oppor­tun­it­ies.

Please send cop­ies only. Ori­ginal doc­u­ments will not be returned.
