Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den-Ros­sen­dorf e.V.

As a mem­ber of the Helm­holtz Asso­ci­ation of Ger­man Research Cen­ters, the HZDR employs about 1,400 people. The Cen­ter's focus is on inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research in the areas energy, health and mat­ter.

The Insti­tute of Fluid Dynam­ics is con­duct­ing basic and applied research in the fields of thermo-fluid dynam­ics and mag­neto­hydro­dynam­ics in order to improve the sus­tain­ab­il­ity, the energy effi­ciency and the safety of indus­trial pro­cesses.

As part of the Insti­tute, the Depart­ment of Exper­i­mental Thermal Fluid Dynam­ics invites applic­a­tions as PostDoc (f/m/d) Advanced con­trol sys­tems of wastewa­ter sys­tems.

The pos­i­tion will be avail­able from 1 Janu­ary 2022. The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to three years (sub­ject to a pos­it­ive pro­ject eval­u­ation).
