The Institute of Wind Energy Systems invites applications for a position as a
Research Assistant (m/f) (Salary Scale 13 TV-L)
to be appointed January 1, 2017. The position is limited to 3 years. Conferral of a doctorate in the framework of the position is welcome.

Responsibilities and duties
Responsibilities and duties include contributions in the fields of research and education. This also covers e.g. the realization and acquisition of research projects, the execution of education tutorials, and the supervision of student works such as Bachelor’s or Master’s theses.

The research topic considers aeroelastic stability of wind turbine rotor blades. In particular, an existing methodology for the calculation of critical inflow velocities shall be automized and exten­ded. The position is embedded in a coordinated research project that focusses on so-called smart rotor blade concepts. In strong collaboration with cooperation partners, aeroelastic stability analy­ses have to be carried out for different rotor blade concepts, and results have to be evaluated in the context of the wind turbine system.

Employment conditions
To qualify for the position, applicants (m/f) must hold a Diploma or Master’s degree of a scientific engineering study with a strong background in aeroelastics. Specialist skills and knowledge in aeroelastic stability and wind energy engineering are advantageous. Very good English skills are compulsory. We expect a highly motivated and independent team worker with very good communication and organization skills.

The position may be filled with part-time employees, provided it will thereby be covered to the full extent.

As an equal opportunities employer, Leibniz Universität Hannover intends to promote women and men in the context of statutory requirements.
