Research Assistant Position in Numerical Modelling of Geotechnical Energy Systems

Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel

The centre of excellence is offering a Research Assistant Position in Numerical Modelling of Geotechnical Energy Systems starting on January 1st 2019. The position is assigned to the chair in geohydromodelling at the Institute for Geosciences.

The conception, dimensioning and evaluation of geotechnical energy systems requires the use of suitable simulation software and numerical modelling to analyse the spatial structure of the systems and the geological subsurface. Accordingly, the main task of this position is the establishment of deployment concepts of geotechnical energy systems, especially of geothermic energy systems, as well as the planning and performance for the dimensioning and evaluation of the required simulations.
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:
Characterization of subsurface processes inside and outside of the geotechnical energy systems
Development and implementation of suitable simulation concepts for planning, dimensioning and evaluation of the systems under energy and environmental aspects
Testing of innovative approaches in laboratory and pilot-plant testing and their practical applications
Performance of numerical scenario simulations
Documentation and conceptual development of systems and their applications
Use of scientific process software for scenario simulations
Documentation of results and the used workflows
Technical guidance for users intense cooperation and network with internal and external partners of the "Centre of Excellence Geo-Energy"

Skills and qualifications:
Completed doctoral degree in the field geosciences, engineering sciences or related disciplines
Professional skills in the research field of internal and external energy systems and process understanding
Experience in the application of numerical simulations for scenario analysis
Willingness and independent training in the field of geothermic energy systems and geoscientific basics
Enjoyment of interdisciplinary work
Excellent communication skills
Ability to work independently, but also as part of a large research team
Proficient German and English language skills
