Type of employment

Full-time

Your mission:

The optical communication group of DLR’s Institute of Communications and Navigation develops experimental laser communication systems for optical data links between airborne carriers such as airplanes or satellites and optical ground stations. The system development covers several disciplines such as optics, mechanics, electronics and programming.

The successful applicant will support our team in the development of optical and optomechanical systems. Furthermore he/she will perform system tests and possibly will support the team during scientific measurement campaigns. It is an excellent opportunity to work in a cutting edge topic, gain experience on real optical hardware, and improve your engineering skills.

The subject offers several internship and Master´s Thesis topics like:

  • electronics design for mechatronics of the optical terminal
  • firmware and control design
  • measurement of external mechanical disturbances such as vibration or temperature drift in the optical terminal and development of potential compensation measures
  • integration of electronics, mechanics and optics

Your qualifications:

  • study direction of Electrical Engineering
  • practical experience with hardware development
  • usage of electronics CAD software (e.g. Altium)
  • programming of 32bit micro controllers in C

Your benefits:

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. We are striving to increase the proportion of female employees and therefore particularly welcome applications from women. Disabled applicants with equivalent qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
