According to the German TVöD 13
People at the DLR Institute of Optical Sensor Systems investigate and develop active and passive optical sensor systems for satellites, flying platforms and robotic systems. Our vision is to develop autonomous optical sensor systems in analogy to and extension of the human visual perception. The sensor systems are developed for applications spanning the UV, visible, infrared and THz spectral range. In the department Terahertz and Laser Spectroscopy, innovative technologies and instruments are developed for the exploration of the terahertz spectral range. Today, terahertz systems are already used in several application fields. Imaging systems are routinely employed for security controls and spectroscopic systems allow for highly specific and sensitive detection of gases.
You develop and investigate methods for high-resolution terahertz spectroscopy with quantum-cascade lasers. The task comprises the design, construction and evaluation of a spectrometer for broad-band molecular and solid state spectroscopy. In addition, you will be involved in the development of laser-based terahertz spectrometers for balloon and satellite missions.
You will be a member of the Helmholtz Research School on Security Technologies (HRSST). The mission of the Research School is to contribute to civil security by excellent research and by training and education of young researchers in technology fields which are highly relevant for civil security. The payment will be according to German TVÖD E13 or an equivalent scholarship by the HRSST.
Your working time will be 19,25 hours per week.
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.
Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (m/f/non-binary).
Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
