PhD positions in Hyperloop Engineering and Physics (f/m/d)
Hochschule Emden-Leer University of Applied Sciences
Are you the PhD student who will help to create an Hyperloop-based reliable future logistic chain in an exciting European network?
In the framework of the Horizon2020 project "ePIcenter", funded by the European Commission, we are looking for two highly motivated and bright PhD students. We seek candidates with interests in physics, engineering, computer science, simulation and modelling.
The Institute for Hyperloop Technology (IHT) at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer, Faculty of Technology, Emden Campus, has two openings to be filled as of March 1st, 2021 with half of the regular weekly working hours of a full-time job - limited until November 30th, 2023.
2 PhD positions in Hyperloop Engineering and Physics
(according to the required qualification up to E 13 TV-L, 50 %)
Code number T 223_4
The University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer is a driving force for the region and sets an example for innovative developments in the northwest with excellent equipment for applied research. The "ePIcenter" project, which is funded by the EU with approx. 7 million Euro, is being carried out by 37 international partners who are developing the logistics of the future. You can rely on the research group with an excellent infrastructure at the university as well as the project partners of the research consortium "ePIcenter". You will conceptualize the testing environment of hyperloop technology for laboratory-scale physical demonstrators and the full-scale test track. Preparing design studies and perform validations of the test setup by simulations and modeling involves also control and automation tasks, programming and implementation of complex systems. You will contribute to a climate-friendly society in an innovative field of research with outstanding importance for sustainability in the transport sector. Within the scope of our cooperation with the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg in Engineering Physics, we offer an inspiring working atmosphere for the successful completion of a doctorate.
