Research Assistant - salary grade E 13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

part-time employement may be possible; under the reserve that funds are granted

Working field:

The aim of the "SecondLife" project is to develop efficient and sustainable technology options for decarbonizing the process steam supply of a refinery site, integrating the existing infrastructure of a site, and exploiting possible synergy potentials. In this context, simulation and optimization methods as well as energy-based methods are to be further developed and applied.

The tasks essentially include collaboration in project processing. This includes, among other things, the development and further development of the methods used, the preparation and documentation of project results, the preparation and implementation of project meetings of the project network and public workshops, the supervision of student theses within the framework of the project as well as the publication of project results within the framework of reports and scientific papers.
