The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Energy Systems of Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus-Senftenberg invites applicants for a

Professorship (W2)
Image based measurement techniques
(Bildgebende Messverfahren)

with research-oriented focus.
The candidate will be appointed as university professor at the BTU Cottbus- Senftenberg and granted leave (Jülicher Model) to the Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Göttingen to assume research and management tasks.
The development of the following core areas is desired:
  • Development and application of image based measurement methods for turbulent and rotating flows
  • Development and application of advanced particle based Lagrangian tracking methods (LPT) and Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) for highly resolved optical measurements in (turbulent) flow- and transport processes
  • Adaptation and application of image based measurement methods for high Reynolds number multi-disciplinary research in experimental aerodynamics, -elastics and -acoustics
  • Support of experimental validation procedures for advanced numerical simulation methods
It is expected, that candidates have appropriate experience in more than one of these fields of research and are willing to participate in joint research projects with other departments of the faculty and the university and to continue current research activities of the department.
The professorship is member of the Institute of Traffic Engineering at BTU. Furthermore, a close cooperation with the BTU Center for Flow- and Transport Phenomena (CFTMM) is desired which aims at focusing on fluid mechanics within the interdisciplinary research between engineering, environmental science, mathematics, physics and process engineering.
A personality is sought-after which is able to represent and address the related scientific topics in research and teaching comprehensively and is well cross-linked in the national and international community. The future holder of the position should be experienced in the acquisition and implementation of collaborative projects with partners from industry and science. In teaching, the candidate is expected to collaborate in all study courses of mechanical engineering as well as in other engineering study courses. The teaching responsibility will be 2 hours per week during the semester.
