SITE ASSESSMENT SOIL CONDITIONS
What we expect from you
You have successfully completed a degree in an Engineering or Natural Sciences major or have comparable expertise. Furthermore, you have worked professionally in industry or industry-oriented research, ideally coupled with responsibility for staff, budgets and acquisitions. Professionally, you are specialized in geophysical site surveying for offshore wind farms with a focus on seismoacoustic methods. Experience in the development of offshore wind farms, the performance of geophysical measuring campaigns at sea, or the generation of geological models of the seabed is desirable. Since Fraunhofer IWES performs a variety of duties at an international level, an excellent command of both English and German is a prerequisite. You possess refined organizational, communication, and leadership skills, a high level of self-motivation, creativity and flexibility, plus you enjoy working as part of a team.
What you can expect from us
The aim of the group »Site Assessment Soil Conditions« is to develop geophysical methods and instruments which will be used in industry for the planning and erection of offshore wind farms in the future and generate an added value for industry and society alike. The primary activity of the group revolves around the multichannel seismics developed in cooperation with the University of Bremen, which are used on behalf of wind farm developers for site surveying and in the scope of research projects for geophysical matters in offshore wind energy.
You will take on a role with leadership responsibilities in a motivated team passionate about offshore site surveying. The focuses are on multichannel seismics and the use of geophysical and geotechnical methods in wind energy. As team leader, you will be responsible for the professional and disciplinary management and organization as well as the strategic and technological orientation and further development of the team. In addition, you will also be responsible for the acquisition of new industry projects and the initiation of publicly funded research projects at both national and European level.
We offer responsible and varied work and the challenging environment of an international research institute. In addition, we offer a cooperative, open working climate, a broad range of duties, a very well equipped technical infrastructure as well as excellent personal and professional development opportunities.
