The Ceramics group at the Department of Materials and Earth Science at TU Darmstadt focuses on the development of new electroceramics. This international group of about 20 researchers is one of the worldwide leaders in the development of lead-free piezoceramics.
We are looking for a talented and highly motivated person who is interested in developing new evaluation methods based on machine learning algorithms. The person would obtain a doctoral position funded by the state of Hessen. In cooperation with rhd instruments GmbH & Co. KG, a leading company in the field of evaluation software for frequency-dependent electrical measurements, appropriate algorithms are used to facilitate the use of impedance spectroscopy for industry and academic research. This method is essential for the description of electrical processes in batteries, fuel cells, capacitors, etc.
At the TU Darmstadt we offer a position as
with a fixed-term contract of initially three years. A separate employment at rhd instruments GmbH & Co. KG (20h/week) will also be offered.
The project includes the analyzes of impedance spectra using machine learning algorithms. The model creation and sorting of large amounts of impedance data include the generation of start parameter values and an automated evaluation. Working with real and simulated impedance measurements. Creation of models to combine impedance results with other metadata (e.g., measurement conditions, synthesis parameters of energy materials). Implementation of the models in the commercial software from rhd instruments GmbH & Co. KG in collaboration with Dr. Jens Wallauer (Manager Software Development).
Opportunity for further qualification (doctoral dissertation) is given. The fulfillment of the duties likewise enables the scientific qualifications of the candidate.
The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of female employees and encourages female candidates to apply. In case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of at least 50 or equal will be given preference. Wages and salaries are according to the collective agreements on salary scales, which apply to the Technische Universität Darmstadt (TV-TU Darmstadt).
Applications should include a detailed resume that also mentions subjects you have studied in the Master's course with grades obtained and a list of publications (if any) in peer-reviewed journals.
