Bark­hau­sen Insti­tut gGmbH - Inter­net der Dinge

The Bark­hau­sen Insti­tute per­forms rese­arch on the latest hard­ware, soft­ware and com­mu­nic­a­tion tech­no­lo­gies and demon­stra­tes their app­lic­a­tion in tomor­row's soci­ety. Our goal is to build a flex­ible and trust­worthy IoT plat­form based on reli­able elec­tron­ics and secure com­mu­nic­a­tion meth­ods.

Stu­dent Assist­ant – Elec­tro­mag­netic Radi­ation Strength Demon­stra­tor Design (m/f/d)

(up to 19 hours/week for 3-6 mon­ths)

Working field:

The RF Design Enable­ment group rese­ar­ches and devel­ops depend­able IoT sys­tems with focus on three key rese­arch top­ics such as joint radar-com­mu­nic­a­tion sys­tem, antenna-sys­tem design with meta-sur­face and phys­ical layer secur­ity. We focus our rese­arch on design­ing build­ing blocks, while identi­fy­ing crit­ical hard­ware para­met­ers for next-gen­er­a­tion hard­ware sys­tems and app­lic­a­tions.

The pro­ject
The SHK will explore and invest­ig­ate the sci­ent­i­fic meth­ods app­lic­able for RF sig­nal strength detec­tion in sub-10 GHz spec­trum. The SHK will design and man­u­fac­ture the suit­able cir­cuits in the lab. The aim is to deve­lop a panel of RF power sen­sors for spa­tial map­ping of elec­tro­mag­netic radi­ation strength for demon­stra­tion to non-sci­ent­i­fic audi­ence.

Your tasks
  • Sim­u­lat­ing simple RF cir­cuits using an EM soft­ware (AWR, HFSS, etc).
  • Design­ing and run­ning ana­log cir­cuit sim­u­la­tions with soft­ware tools (e.g. Altium desi­gner).
  • Multi-layer PCB design­ing using soft­ware tools (e.g. Altium desi­gner, KiCAD, etc.) and assem­bling of the cir­cuit boards in the lab.
  • Meas­ure­ment of dif­fer­ent RF cir­cuits using VNA and spec­trum ana­lyzer


We expect the fol­low­ing
  • Study of com­puter sci­ence, elec­tri­cal engin­eer­ing or com­par­able.
  • Basic know­ledge of micro­wave engin­eer­ing and ana­log/digi­tal cir­cuits.
  • Know­ledge of EM soft­ware (HFSS, CST etc) and ana­log cir­cuit design soft­ware (e.g. Altium desi­gner, cir­cuit­maker)
  • Prior exper­i­ence of simple PCB design­ing.
  • Prior exper­i­ence of using RF lab equip­ment pre­fer­red
  • Good com­mu­nic­a­tion and writ­ing skills in Eng­lish

What we offer:

What we pro­vide
  • An open and cre­at­ive team of enthu­si­astic sci­ent­ists
  • Close to cam­pus
  • Agile work­ing hours and work­flows
  • Work on future tech­no­lo­gies

If you have pas­sion for new tech­no­lo­gies and the desire to deve­lop the con­nec­ted world of tomor­row with us, we are look­ing for you.

Life and sci­ence are com­pat­ible at our insti­tute. We offer a range of recog­nised fam­ily-fri­endly meas­ures, such as part-time work, mobile work­ing and flex­ible work­ing hours that take fam­ily needs into account. We also offer sup­port for arriv­ing in Dres­den (all form­al­it­ies, apart­ment etc.).

How to apply:

App­lic­a­tion pro­ced­ure

Short let­ter of motiv­a­tion and cur­ricu­lum vitae to We only accept com­plete doc­u­ments as one sin­gle PDF doc­u­ment by e-mail. App­lic­a­tions that con­tain other file for­mats (e.g. Word, Excel) will not be con­side­red in the selec­tion pro­cess. Infor­mal inquir­ies can also be sub­mit­ted to the same address.

The data sub­mit­ted by you in the course of the app­lic­a­tion pro­ced­ure will be pro­ces­sed by the Bark­hau­sen Insti­tut (BI). BI shall use the data for the pur­poses of the app­lic­a­tion pro­ced­ure. No data shall be pas­sed on to third par­ties.
