The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Energy Systems of Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus-Senftenberg, invites applications for a
Junior Professorship (W1)
Automated Drive Systems
You are a highly talented researcher and a qualified scientist in the area of Automated Drive Systems with the ambition to establish a high-profile and internationally recognized research line. Besides excellent knowledge in research you will contribute to teaching at different levels and university duties. Possible research topics are:
- optimization of electromechanical power transmission with the goal of exploring electromechanical energy converter and low inertia and high torque drive motors and the design of suitable control and regulation techniques
- reliability, availability and preventive diagnosis and fault tolerance of electric power transmission
- generating electrical energy from renewable sources in the range of very small benefits for mobile applications or for rural landscape
The successful candidate must have a strong experimental background in the application and development of scientific findings or methods in the area of automated driving systems.
The professorship is part of the Institute of Electrical Systems and Energy Logistics and thus strongly connected to the chairs of Electrical Engineering and System Engineering.
A close cooperation with the related fields in the Institute of Engineering and Management is expected.
