Data scientist, mathematician or similar (f/m/x)


The focus of the DLR Institute for Data Science in Jena is on finding solutions to the major challenges of the digitalization age. Research here focuses on the areas of data acquisition and mobilization, data management and enrichment, and data analysis and intelligence.

In the "Information Extraction and Interoperability" working group, we research and develop solutions for digitalization and information consistency in heterogeneous systems, particularly in the context of production.

The position advertised here is set up to develop new scientific methods and tools to improve data and process interoperability. Various data models (digital shadows) are to be integrated over the life cycle of products, following the FAIR principles. In addition to classic product information, life cycle assessment (LCA) models for evaluating the CO2 impact also play a role here.

In particular, your duties will include:

  • identification of use cases and requirements from the technical domains in the corresponding projects
  • literature research on the state of the art in science and technology, evaluation and application to the use cases; improvement and new development of methods where necessary
  • building on this, implementation of prototypes to address the use cases and testing together with domain institutes in the projects
  • scientific publication of results in the form of peer-reviewed publications and presentations
  • technical supervision of student work and internships
  • presentation of project results to the public, e.g. at the "Long Night of Science", open days, etc.

Your qualifications:

  • completed academic university studies (Master / Diploma Uni) in computer science, mathematics or other relevant studies for the job
  • research experience in the area of interoperability, preferably with a focus on semantic interoperability
  • good programming skills, preferably experience with software development in teams
  • good knowledge of German
  • good knowledge of English
  • experience in life cycle assessment desirable
  • experience in product life cycle and manufacturing processes desirable

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.
