Chemist, Engineer Process Engineering, Electrical Engineering or similar (f/m/x)


Would you like to contribute to a rational and environmentally friendly energy supply?

The newly founded DLR Institute of Future Fuels investigates sustainable processes – in particular solar high-temperature processes – for the production of chemicals and fuels. In most cases, these are multi-stage thermo-chemical or thermo/electro-chemical cycles in which specially developed reaction materials and qualified construction materials are applied. Particularly promising is the sulphur dioxide depolarised electrolysis, the development of which is of great importance for the institute. Central activities in this context are the investigation and qualification of this electrolytical process, as well as the development and evaluation of technologies for the integration of solar high-temperature heat and solar power in corresponding laboratory, pilot scale set and demonstration plants.

Together with colleagues at the institute, you will be actively involved in the development and realisation of the processes. In national and international projects, you will independently carry out scientific development work in close coordination with internal and external partners. Your tasks include the preparation, acquisition and management of new projects as well as the supervision of students.

Your qualifications:

  • scientific university degree in electrical engineering, process engineering, mechanical engineering, physical chemistry, physics or similar
  • practical experience with the design, realisation and commissioning of lab and pilot-scale prototypes and their control
  • knowledge in numerical modelling and simulation as well as in hardware and process design
  • experience in the field of electrochemical processes and components, e.g. electrolysis systems or fuel cells
  • experience in cooperation with international partners and in the management of projects is desired
  • ability to work in a team, interdisciplinary cooperation, commitment and willingness to learn
  • very good oral and written expression skills in English
  • knowledge of concentrating solar plants and solar chemical plants is of advantage

Your benefits:

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.
