Research Assistant Position in Modelling Design for Material Behaviour

Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel

The centre of excellence is offering a

Research Assistant Position in Modelling Design for Material Behaviour

starting on January 1st 2019. The position is assigned to the chair of Marine and Terrestrial Geomechanics and Geotechnics at the Institute for Geosciences.

In the future, changing energy sectors create new challenges in the research field of geo-energy and -technologies. Therefore, new solutions are necessary in the laboratory and pilot-plant testing to simulate the behaviour and to develop new materials and constructions for energy storage and geo-energy-technologies. Thereby, the understanding of thermo-hydro-mechanical material behaviours is essential for the modelling and the interpretation of experimental analysis.

The occupation may commence as soon as the positions funding by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) has been approved. The position is limited to three years. This is a full-time position (38.7 h/week). Partial employment and flexible working time models are basically possible. The salary will be paid in accordance with the German tariff for public employees (TV-L E 13).

Job duties and requirements:
On-going development and application of numerical models
Description of the material behaviour by constitutive relationships, especially hydraulic, thermic and geomechanical coupled processes at various spatial scales (interaction and material modelling)
Organising, developing and implementing material models to illustrate thermo-hydro-mechanical problems
Implementation of training courses for the industry, authority and university
Guidance and support of PhDs and students
Organisation of technical and time schedule
Intense cooperation and network with internal and external partners of the "Centre of Excellence Geo-Energy"

Skills and qualifications:
Completed master degree in geomechanics, geotechnics, geosciences or civil engineering
Experience in geotechnical and geomechanical laboratory and pilot-plant testing
Professional software and programming skills
Excellent skills in software development
Data processing experience with latex and office
Ability to work independently, but also as part of a large interdisciplinary research team
Proficient German and English language skills
Flexible, resilient, sovereign and discrete personality
Driving licence category B and C1
