Engineer Aeronautics, Mechanical Engineer (f/m) or similar, Chemical Propulsion Systems Analysis and Design (TEC-MPC) for the our German Trainee Programme (GTP)
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research centre and the space agency of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Here, 8000 employees work together on a unique variety of topics in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation.
Their missions range from basic research to the development of innovative applications and products for tomorrow. Cutting-edge research requires excellent
minds - particularly more females - at all levels, who fully achieve their potential in an inspiring environment. Launch your mission with us.
For our German Trainee Programme (GTP) in cooperation with ESTEC in Noordwijk, Netherlands, we wish to recruit a qualified
Engineer Aeronautics, Mechanical Engineer or similar
Chemical Propulsion Systems Analysis and Design (TEC-MPC)
Have you (almost) completed your degree studies? Are you inspired by space exploration and keen to pursue a career in this exciting field?
If so, perhaps you should take a closer look at the German Trainee Programme. Organised by DLR, it offers you the chance to work shoulder
to shoulder with experts from the 22 member states of ESA - keeping your finger on the pulse of Europe’s space programmes. Over a period
up to 24 months, you will actively contribute to the latest research and/or technology projects. This is complemented by a generous scholarship.
What better way to launch your career in international space business? The next GTP commences on 1st February 2019.
The Propulsion Engineering Section (TEC-MPC) has the following tasks:
provide expert technical support and consultancy in launcher propulsion (liquid, including storable and cryogenic technologies, and solid propulsion) and spacecraft (various chemical propulsion technologies) to the Agency project teams responsible for the development of launchers and spacecraft, throughout all project phases
contribute to the preparation of work plans in the areas of launcher and spacecraft propulsion in the Agency's technological programmes, with a particular contribution expected on systems and new propulsion aspects
prepare and manage, from a technical perspective, ESA contracts for studies, experimental investigations and engineering development activities in space propulsion
contribute to the distribution of the results of the activities performed and the transfer of knowledge across the Agency
You will model development and implementation, as well as the application of existing models to support engineering cross check activities. You will apply
high-level methods to provide rough estimates for various engineering problems of spacecraft in parallel to on-going development projects.
Furthermore, you will support pre phase A studies, such as those performed in CDF (Concurrent Design Facility) sessions and will use these studies to improve the analysis tools.
During those activities you will have the opportunity to learn a great deal about various aspects of spacecraft propulsion systems and associated design problems, which
are characteristic for the individual project phases.
You will deal with topics such as:
performing trade-offs between different propulsion systems for given applications
calculation of propellant and pressurant budget according to mission profile
evaluation of overall engine performance for different propellant combinations, pressure levels etc.
propulsion feedline pressure drop and water hammer analysis
support of tests (water hammer, passivation, ...) in the propulsion laboratory
analysis of end of life tank pressure evolution
set up and maintenance of a propulsion components database
general knowledge about space propulsion systems, as well as some programming experience in VBA or any other higher programming language are essential for this specific task
German citizenship is absolutely necessary
applicants should have just completed (conclusion not older than two years) or be in their final year of a university course at Master's level in a technical or scientific discipline
candidates must be fluent in English or French, the official languages of the Agency
We look forward to your e-mail application in English, citing GTP-2019-TEC-MPC to GTP@dlr.de.
Closing date for this position is 6th September 2018. The interviews are tentatively scheduled for week 45/2018. Please visit the
German Trainee Programme page for details of our application procedures. Your application should consist of a motivation letter
and your CV only (CV exclusively in Europass format). Unfortunately we cannot consider further documents. Disabled applicants with
equivalent qualifications will be given preferential treatment. If you have any initial questions, please feel free to contact Ms.
