Researcher in the Field of Energy System Analysis regarding Innovative use of Solid Raw Materials

Technical University of Munich

Germany

 

The project: In the HotVeGas project, the Department of Energy Systems, together with well-known partners from industry and research, is researching the innovative use of solid fuels such as residuals, biomass or coal. The aim is to show alternative ways for the production of electricity, heat and platform chemicals in so-called polygeneration plants. Your tasks: Technically you will be entrusted with the model-based mapping of the current and future situation of material energy carriers. With regard to the raw material turn, they consider the techno-economic potentials of different primary energy sources as well as of synthetic intermediate products and final energy sources. As an example of innovative material conversion processes, you can use thermal process simulations to investigate the properties of gasification processes with excess current integration. In close cooperation with further analyzes at the chair, your research will be integrated into an overall model of the future German energy system. The goal is to identify promising technology pathways and align future research accordingly. In addition, you are involved in higher-level project and departmental tasks such as the organization of meetings, internal project communication or teaching. Your Profile: You have an above-average university degree in mechanical engineering, process engineering or chemical engineering. You also have experience in the field of energy and material conversion. Ideally, you supplement this knowledge with an insight into the functioning of the German energy system and a solid basic knowledge in economic contexts. You speak English fluently in speech and writing. An open style, organizational talent and creativity complete your profile. The position is classified according to TV-L E13. It is a full time job. The opportunity for promotion is given and desired. Handicapped persons are preferably employed with essentially the same suitability. The TUM aims to increase the proportion of women. Applications by qualified women are therefore expressly welcomed. At the chair, they belong to a team of approx. 30 scientists
