Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dres­den-Ros­sen­dorf e.V.

Through cut­ting-edge research in the fields of ENERGY, HEALTH and MAT­TER, Helm­holtz-Zen­trum Dresden-Rossen­dorf (HZDR) solves some of the press­ing soci­etal and indus­trial chal­lenges of our time. Join our 1.400 employ­ees from more than 50 nations at one of our six research sites and help us mov­ing research to the next level!

The insti­tute of Fluid Dynam­ics is con­duct­ing basic and applied research in the fields of thermo-fluid dynam­ics and mag­neto­hydro­dynam­ics in order to improve the sus­tain­ab­il­ity, the energy effi­ciency and the safety of indus­trial pro­cesses.

As part of the Insti­tute, the Depart­ment of Exper­i­mental Thermal Fluid Dynam­ics invites applic­a­tions as Postdoc Researcher (f/m/d) Advanced Oxid­a­tion Pro­cess (AOP) for water treat­ment.

The pos­i­tion will be avail­able from 1 Novem­ber 2022. The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to 31 Decem­ber 2024.

Postdoc Researcher (f/m/d) Advanced Oxid­a­tion Pro­cess (AOP) for water treat­ment

Working field:

  • Super­vi­sion of stu­dents
  • Pub­lic­a­tion of res­ults in sci­entific journ­als


  • PhD degree in Chem­ical, Biopro­cess, Water/Wastewa­ter Treat­ment Pro­cess Engin­eer­ing or a related field
  • Can­did­ates (f/m/d) with Mas­ter degree or Dip­loma and out­stand­ing qual­i­fic­a­tions can also be con­sidered
  • Exper­i­ence in two or more of the fol­low­ing fields is required:
  • Indus­trial applic­a­tions of ozone injec­tion and/or cavit­a­tion
  • Reac­tion kin­et­ics of ozone and hydroxyle rad­ic­als in aqueous solu­tions
  • Labor­at­ory ana­lysis (titra­tion, HPLC-MS, SEM, EDX)
  • Engin­eer­ing of pro­cess equip­ment and/or exper­i­mental test plants
  • Exper­i­mental and numer­ical fluid dynam­ics

What we offer:

  • A vibrant research com­munity in an open, diverse and inter­na­tional work envir­on­ment
  • Sci­entific excel­lence and extens­ive pro­fes­sional net­work­ing oppor­tun­it­ies
  • The employ­ment con­tract is lim­ited to 31 Decem­ber 2024
