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 1.500 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 Mag­neto­hydro­dynam­ics invites applic­a­tions as Researcher / PostDoc (f/m/d) Exper­i­mental invest­ig­a­tion of the bound­ary layer beha­vior in tur­bu­lent liquid metal con­vec­tion.
