Type of employment

Full-time (part-time possible)

In the Department of Energy System Integration, our Low Temperature Electrolysis Systems (NTE) group researches systems for alkaline water electrolysis. For this purpose, they are investigated experimentally and numerically in process engineering systems in practice-relevant sizes. Thus, the electrochemical production of hydrogen, but also its further processing in downstream processes are analysed. The aim is to find solutions to eliminate the conflicting goals of efficiency, operating time, safety and costs, and thus make an important
contribution to the energy transition.

With your work, you will support our team in the design, development, construction and commissioning of test facilities for the investigation of alkaline water electrolysers and associated system components. You will be responsible for the procurement of components, including the preparation of performance specifications and coordination of the purchasing, awarding and delivery processes. You will also prepare documentation and support the implementation of research tasks in the field of alkaline water electrolysis.

Your qualifications:

  • completed technical university degree in engineering (e.g. mechanical engineering, mechatronics, process engineering, electrical engineering or comparable)
  • In-depth knowledge in the field of process engineering systems
  • good knowledge of English
  • several years of experience in the following areas is an advantage: electrolysis or fuel cell technology, test stand/facility design, development and construction; planning, carrying out research tasks on process engineering test stands/plants and evaluating the results

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 unparalleled 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 (f/m/x). Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
