Full-time (part-time possible)
Many applications at DLR produce large structured and unstructured datasets. They are not only related to scientific and technical applications but can also stem from public administrations and insurance companies. Even the public might provide data to the heterogeneous data pool (Citizen Science).
Access, exploration and analysis of that data allows humans to come to an understanding of complex processes and enables a purposive shaping of the world. In particular, data-driven modeling with methods of machine learning plays an increasingly important role here.
At Jena, the new DLR institute of Data Science is looking for computer scientists to investigate and develop new analysis and visualization approaches:
We are currently looking for an experienced scientist with proven multi-year research experience in information visualization or visual analytics. A completed PhD in this area is of great advantage. You should have an in-depth knowledge of software development and a solid education in math, data mining or machine learning. We see as a basic requirement that you have the power to put things into practice. In addition, basic knowledge in cognitive science and human-machine interaction are very helpful for system development and assessment.
We are looking for highly motivated people with the ambition to initiate new projects with other DLR institutes as well as research institutions located in Thuringia, Germany. We are offering an environment where people can bring in own ideas. We expect that new projects are inspired and advanced methods are investigated. Part of your job will also be the presentation of your research on international conferences and in scientific journals. We are offering an exciting, friendly, and flexible working environment which also provides part time.
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.
