    Type of employment

    Full-time (part-time possible)

    The newly established Institute for Maritime Energy Systems researches and develops innovative solutions for decarbonization and emission reduction in shipping and transfers them into practice by cooperation with industry. The institute is building a large-scale infrastructure to test and trial the new energy systems to be developed in a standardized laboratory environment as well as under real conditions on a research vessel. A subdivision of the institute into four departments serves to achieve the goals. The System Demonstration Department investigates configurations of energy networks on ships as well as supply networks for heating and cooling. Optimization can achieve CO2 savings potentials that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption.

    We need support for a project of the department. This project will investigate, design, build, and test the use of DC power grids to power ships.

    Your tasks will include:

    • You will perform ongoing literature research on existing methods.
    • You will select scientific methods and tools on this basis
    • You will develop concepts for the design and construction of line electronics for the medium voltage range on ships
    • You build the components and develop methods for safety assessment
    • You will set up a laboratory for testing the line electronics
    • You test and validate the components to be developed and define certification requirements for approval
    • You plan the work and procedures and carry them out
    • You evaluate the research results scientifically and publish them
    • You use the research results to create patents and samples
    • You then plan new research projects and acquire them
    • You supervise students (interns, bachelor, master) in connection with the research topic
    • You take care of the acquisition of third-party funding

    In case of successful acquisition of external funding, you will have the opportunity to take over the project management in coordination with the head of department.

    A team is waiting for you, in which friendly cooperation and solidarity are capitalized.

    • Completed scientific university degree in the field of electrical engineering or in a field of study relevant to the research topic (diploma/master's degree)
    • Experience in construction and design of DC voltage systems
    • Experience in validation of DC voltage systems
    • Extensive English language skills
    • Several years of professional experience in the field of the research topic is desirable

    Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x). Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
