Job description:

For the Institute for Chemical Technology and Polymer Chemistry (ITCP), we are currently seeking to recruit, a Research associate / PhD candidate (f/m/d) for work on a project in the field of data analysis and processing.


The investigation of heterogeneous catalyzed and homogeneous reaction systems by means of experiments and simulations generates large amounts of data. Their evaluation and comparison requires new approaches to digital processing. The data has to be largely automatically converted into a form to be ready for a detailed scientific analysis. The focus of the work to be carried out relates to the application and further development of an existing platform on the basis of web technologies (JavaScript/TypeScript, HTML, CSS) for the direct visual and statistical comparison of data sets from experiments and numerical simulations. For these, further tools will be developed and implemented.


Please enclose a one-page letter of motivation and relevant certificates with your application. The opportunity for a doctorate is given. For further information please visit www.itcp.kit.edu/deutschmann.


You must have an excellent university degree (Diplom/Master) in chemical engineering, physics, computer science, chemistry or mechanical engineering and a very good general technical understanding. Since the mentioned data describes physical and chemical processes, you should ideally have knowledge in the field of measurement techniques as well as experience in modelling related to chemical reaction engineering. In addition, very good programming skills as well as good knowledge of the English language in word and writing are expected. German language skills are a plus. Besides the professional qualification, strong commitment, independent and self-responsible working is requested.


Salary

Salary category 13, depending on the fulfillment of professional and personal requirements.


Contract duration
