Research & Teaching Assistant, Post-doc, PhD

Gesuchter Beruf:Design of Airplane Structures Using Solution Space Optimization
Beschreibung:About us
The Laboratory for Product Development and Lightweight Design focuses on the design and optimization of complex systems in aerospace and automotive engineering. We develop methods, tools and specific solutions to technical problems with optimal functionality, weight and cost.
We are currently looking for a research/teaching assistant for the development of design methods for airplane structures. Airplane structures are difficult to design because of interacting physical effects from aerodynamics and structural mechanics, many requirements, e.g., on strength and durability, and restricted design spaces, e.g., due to manufacturability. Similar challenges were successfully met in vehicle design by computing so-called solution spaces [1, 2]. Computing high-dimensional solution spaces is a novel design technique that requires particular numerical optimization algorithms. In the proposed research, existing and new design techniques shall be analyzed and applied to problems from structural airplane design.

• Development of a comprehensive design method of airplane structures in early design stages with particular focus on (1) aeroelastic effects and (2) uncertainty and robustness
• Development or contribution to algorithms and a software package for system optimization
• Supervision of student projects and teaching classes
• Contribution to lab team projects

• Master degree in Mechanical Engineering or similar
• Excellent knowledge of fundamentals of engineering mechanics
• Solid experience in computational mechanics and programming skills
• Experience in interdisciplinary team work and communication skills
• German

We offer
• Room for new ideas and a stimulating environment to realize them
• Possibility to graduate with a PhD degree
• Full position as research/teaching assistant with salary according to E13 TV-L
