Technische Universität Berlin offers an open position:

Research assistant - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

part-time employment may be possible

Working field:

Due to mechanical and thermal loads during grinding different wear mechanisms occur on the grinding wheel, which require an efficient and reproduceable dressing process. Within a project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), conditioning of grinding wheels by means of high-pressure jetting of liquid carbon dioxide (HDCO2) will be investigated for the first time.

  • Research in the field of machining with geometrically undefined cutting edge, specifically in the area of grinding technology
  • Development and evaluation of a technology for conditioning conventional and superabrasive grinding wheels by means of high pressure jetting of liquid carbon dioxide (HDCO2)
  • Process modelling based on experimental results for the purpose of designing optimised profiling, sharpening, and cleaning process for grinding wheels
  • Integration and testing of the developed technology within an industrial machine tool
  • Independent planning, execution, and evaluation of research work
  • In addition to operational work, the tasks also include the coordination of further research tasks, communication with project partners
  • Presentation of results at milestone and final meetings and at international conferences


  • Successfully completed scientific university studies (diploma, master’s degree) in mechanical engineering or related engineering sciences
  • In-depth knowledge in the field of production engineering
  • Good knowledge of a programming language for process modeling, e.g. Python or Matlab
  • Strong willingness to do a doctorate
  • Good knowledge of German and/or English required; willingness to acquire the respective missing language skills

Optional criteria:

  • Knowledge in the field of machining production processes, especially grinding technology desirable
  • Experience in the field of statistical test planning and the operation of CNC machine tools as well as measurement and control technology
  • Experience in the field of numerical simulation methods
  • Independent, systematic and structured way of working
