under the reserve that funds are granted - part-time employment may be possible

Working field:

Collaboration in research project SubWW (SubWW: A case study of an innovative heating network in suburban areas at the example of the built-up district of Leeste town center: Phase 2 realization). The project SubWW 2 aims to provide scientific support for the planning and implementation of a low carbon and economically viable heat supply concept in the town center of Leeste. In addition, the development of an adaptable energy management system and the identification of further supply areas in the direct proximity of the study area are planned. The project is considered to be one of the lighthouse projects of the heat transition within Germany and is planned as an interdisciplinary research project with links to economics and local participation.
The tasks include:
  • Development and evaluation of heat supply concepts on the district level
  • Adaptation and development of dynamic simulation models for thermal-hydraulic simulation of district heating networks and dynamic building simulation using the Modelica language
  • Further development of a Python-based tool for the identification of economically optimized heat supply solutions in the districts
  • Automation of design and evaluation routines and further process chains
  • Scientific consulting for executive companies during the planning and implementation of the supply concept
  • Presentation of results to scientific and non-scientific audiences
  • Writing of scientific publications
  • PhD thesis preparation is possible


  • Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in building services engineering, utility engineering, power engineering, process engineering, mechanical engineering, physical engineering or a comparable field of study
  • An analytical, structured, solution-oriented, independent and scientific way of working is essential
  • Knowledge in the field of building and plant simulation and/or system simulation ideally using Modelica is preferable
  • Programming experiences of a common programming language ideally in Python
  • Interest and high motivation to work on a challenging and forward-looking research project in order to make a significant contribution to the success of the energy transition
  • A PhD is being pursued
  • Business fluent in German or English
