Engineer, Physicist or similar (f/m/x)

The aim of the DLR Institute of Quantum Technologies in Ulm is to develop precision instruments for space applications based on quantum technologies and, in close cooperation with industry, mature them into prototypes. It thus provides a bridge between fundamental research and industry. Together with the DLR-Institute for Satellite Geodesy and Inertial Sensing in Hannover and the Galileo Competence Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, the institute in Ulm plays a pioneering role in these fields of research and application. The research of the four core departments Quantum Metrology, Quantum Information and Communication, Quantum Nanophysics, and Quantum Control of Charged Matter Waves is complemented by support from three cross-sectional departments of Quantum Engineering, Integration of Micro- and Nanosystems, and Theoretical Quantum Physics. The institute works in an interdisciplinary way, where fundamental theoretical research and experimental tests meets engineering.

Technologies of nano and micro technology are used for the realization of miniaturized quantum technical systems. The current field of application of such systems is limited to the terrestrial environment. Therefore, the known technologies and the resulting systems are to be tested for their suitability for use in space. In addition, there are a wide variety of assembly and connection technologies that need to be evaluated in order to meet the required reliability aspects.

In cooperation with the other departments, the named questions are to be processed. For this it is necessary to map the tasks of the physically shaped departments in a system-technical manner. For this purpose, the scientific research on the raised questions are necessary in an interface function. Ideally, this can be implemented by an interdisciplinary trained engineer who can translate the requirements into a corresponding process development.

Your tasks include:

  • You will develop an opto-mechanical inertial sensor.
  • You will design, simulate and analyze sensor systems based on quantum mechanical principles.
  • You use the most advanced micro-production technology to optimize the manufacturing process for the development of miniaturized quantum sensors and investigate relationships with different materials.
  • You are responsible for the process development and support of individual micro production systems. You are the source of ideas for extensions, new developments and new acquisitions.
  • You present the scientific results at conferences and publications.
  • Completed scientific university study (Diploma Uni / Master) in engineering or natural sciences (e.g. mechanical engineering, materials science, micro or nanotechnology) or other courses relevant to the job
  • Experience with micro production systems in the clean room
  • Experience in the field of rapid prototyping of microsystems
  • Experience in the field of assembly and connection technology
  • Good knowledge of the English and German language, both spoken and written

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.
