Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Chem­nitz - Pro­fes­sur Rege­lungs­tech­nik und Sys­tem­dy­na­mik

Research Asso­ci­ate (m/w/d)

start­ing imme­di­ately lim­ited for one year (100 %, salary group 13 TV-L)

Working field:

Within the con­text of a lar­ger research pro­ject in the field of food pro­duc­tion, cli­mate cham­bers are to be fur­ther developed for the sens­ory-mon­itored and feed­back-con­trolled pro­duc­tion of vari­ous agri­cul­tural products. For this pur­pose, we are look­ing for a per­son who devel­ops suit­able tech­nical con­cepts, designs detailed plans, as well as who guides and sup­ports the tech­nical staff dur­ing imple­ment­a­tion.

Work tasks:

  • design and adapt­a­tion of an exist­ing ther­mo­elec­tric air con­di­tion­ing sys­tem for small-scale cli­mate cham­bers
  • design and man­u­fac­ture of mech­an­ical com­pon­ents using 3D mod­el­ing soft­ware and rapid pro­to­typ­ing tech­niques
  • pro­gram­ming and debug­ging of embed­ded firm­ware for self-built embed­ded plat­forms
  • devel­op­ment of cli­mate con­trol and illu­min­a­tion algorithms for vari­ous bio­lo­gical pro­cesses


  • a good sci­entific uni­versity degree (mas­ter, dip­loma) in the field of elec­trical engin­eer­ing with a focus on embed­ded sys­tems and mechat­ron­ics or com­par­able dis­cip­lines such as elec­trical engin­eer­ing, com­puter sci­ence and mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing, which gives access to the cor­res­pond­ing qual­i­fic­a­tion level
  • basic know­ledge in con­trol engin­eer­ing

Desir­able are:
  • exper­i­ence in rapid pro­to­typ­ing using fusion360 3D mod­el­ing soft­ware and FDM print­ing
  • know­ledge of elec­tronic cir­cuits and PCB design with KiCAD
  • know­ledge of com­pon­ents for heat trans­fer using ther­mo­elec­tric com­pon­ents for air con­di­tion­ing
  • know­ledge of elec­trical cir­cuits such as bid­irec­tional con­trol of ther­mo­elec­tric com­pon­ents, PWM con­trolled MOS­FET driver cir­cuits for motors, and cur­rent con­trolled driver cir­cuits for multi-chan­nel LED light­ing sys­tems
  • exper­i­ence in pro­gram­ming Espres­sif ESP32-S2 micro­con­trol­lers using the ESP-IDF frame­work and FreeR­TOS
  • exper­i­ence with pro­to­cols such as I2C, MQTT, HTTP and web tech­no­lo­gies such as HTML, JavaS­cripts and Things­Board
  • exper­i­ence with code gen­er­a­tion using MAT­LAB Sim­ulink

What we offer:

  • inter­est­ing, chal­len­ging and vary­ing tasks
  • the pos­sib­il­ity to work on fur­ther and ver­sat­ile research top­ics of the chair
  • mod­ern office and labor­at­ory equip­ment
  • an exper­i­enced and com­mit­ted team in a fam­ily-ori­ented and col­legial work­ing envir­on­ment

How to apply:

Inform­at­ive applic­a­tions should be sent elec­tron­ic­ally (prefer­ably only one PDF file) under the keyword "241031_BOX" with the usual doc­u­ments until April 12th 2023 to the fol­low­ing address:

Notes: The pos­i­tion will be occu­pied con­di­tional upon the pro­vi­sion and approval of third-party fund­ing by the third-party fund­ing pro­vider. The tem­por­ary employ­ment is in accord­ance with the reg­u­la­tions of the Wis­senschaft­szeitver­trags­ge­setz (Wis­sZeitVG) and the Säch­s­isches Hoch­schul­freiheits­ge­setz (Säch­sHSFG) as amended. Selec­tion is based on suit­ab­il­ity, qual­i­fic­a­tion and pro­fes­sional per­form­ance. Chem­nitz Uni­versity of Tech­no­logy endeavors to par­tic­u­larly pro­mote women and there­fore expressly asks qual­i­fied women to apply. In the case of equal suit­ab­il­ity, severely dis­abled per­sons or per­sons of equal status will be given pri­or­ity in accord­ance with SGB IX. In prin­ciple, the job is also suit­able for part-time employ­ment. Applic­a­tions will be reviewed to determ­ine whether part-time employ­ment is pos­sible.
You will use your research res­ults for sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions and your own qual­i­fic­a­tion. This is a pos­i­tion for fur­ther sci­entific qual­i­fic­a­tion.
You must meet the require­ments for employ­ment accord­ing to § 71 Säch­sHSFG.
Please refrain from send­ing ori­ginal doc­u­ments, as your writ­ten doc­u­ments will not be returned, but des­troyed in com­pli­ance with data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions. If you would like them to be returned, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed envel­ope with your applic­a­tion.
Please note that, for secur­ity reas­ons, no elec­tronic applic­a­tions or attach­ments to applic­a­tions made avail­able for down­load via hyper­links to third parties can be con­sidered in the recruit­ment pro­cess.
