“Top research needs excellent minds at all levels – especially more women! Start with us, we look forward to your application”Your Prof. Dr. Pascale Ehrenfreund – Chairman of the Board

Your mission:

The Institute of Space Systems in Bremen analyzes and evaluates complex space systems with regard to their technical, economic and social relevance. It develops space-based applications for scientific, commercial and security-related needs and implements them in cooperation with other DLR institutes, research institutions and industry.

The job holder should mainly work in the electronics development laboratory of the institute. The electronics development laboratory is involved in most of the institute’s projects. It develops special measuring electronics, payload components for satellites and supports the work groups in technical, theoretical and practical work. High-quality tools are available, such as reflow soldering systems, various rapid prototyping systems, climatic chambers and measuring devices for recording fast digital signals and evaluating parameters of high-frequency technology.

The technical tasks include:

  • Development, expansion and operation of radio systems and antennas
  • Construction, simulation and measurement of elements of high-frequency technology as well as antennas in software and hardware
  • Development, operation and optimization of software-defined radio systems
  • Support in laboratory processes and projects

The position is initially limited to 6 months, the start is flexible by arrangement.

Your qualification:

  • Studied electrical engineering and information technology, ideally already in the master’s degree, HF / communications engineering
  • first experience in the field of HF EDA software such as CST Studio Suite, Microwave Office or similar
  • Knowledge of programming in Matlab / Python / C
  • Basic knowledge of Linux and network technology desired

Your start:

Look forward to an employer who appreciates your commitment and promotes your development through a wide range of qualification and training opportunities. Our unique work environment offers you design freedom and an incomparable infrastructure in which you can achieve your mission.
