Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Auto­ma­tion, Chair of Pro­cess Con­trol Sys­tems

The Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. lt deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­nary work and the trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion. For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate (m/f/x)

The Faculty of Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Auto­ma­tion, the Chair of Pro­cess Con­trol Sys­tems offers a pro­ject posi­tion as
Rese­arch Asso­ciate (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
star­ting at the ear­liest pos­si­ble date. The posi­tion is wit­hin the rese­arch pro­ject EnS­ort - "Increa­sing energy effi­ci­ency in the waste and recy­cling mate­rial sor­ting pro­cess by increa­sing the degree of auto­ma­tion" and is initi­ally limi­ted until Sep­tem­ber 30, 2025. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG). The pro­ject aims to increase the recy­cling rate and improve the energy effi­ci­ency of the pro­ces­ses in highly com­plex waste sor­ting plants. For this pur­pose, digi­tal twins are deve­lo­ped on the basis of the com­bi­na­tion of pro­cess model­ling and machine lear­ning.

Working field:

Deve­lop­ment of the digi­tal twin of the ent­ire recy­cling plant based on mecha­nistic and hybrid mode­ling approa­ches:
  • con­duc­ting work­shops with indus­try part­ners for requi­re­ments ana­ly­sis
  • pro­cess sys­tems engi­nee­ring ana­ly­sis and descrip­tion of the struc­ture of the exis­ting sor­ting plant
  • mecha­nistic mode­ling as well as hybrid mecha­nistic and data-dri­ven mode­ling of the sub­sys­tems (e.g., based on popu­la­tion balan­ces)
  • sys­tem iden­ti­fi­ca­tion based on design of expe­ri­ments, model discri­mi­na­tion and para­me­ter iden­ti­fi­ca­tion
  • simu­la­tion-based opti­mi­za­tion of plant ope­ra­tion
  • coor­di­na­tion of rese­arch results with our aca­de­mic and indus­try part­ners and publi­ca­tion at inter­na­tio­nal con­fe­ren­ces and in reco­gni­zed sci­en­ti­fic jour­nals.


  • above-average uni­ver­sity degree in the field of pro­cess engi­nee­ring, waste manage­ment, che­mi­cal engi­nee­ring, mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring or rela­ted fields
  • good know­ledge of pro­cess sys­tems engi­nee­ring mode­ling and simu­la­tion
  • initial expe­ri­ence with mode­ling soft­ware (e.g. MAT­LAB, Python, Aspen Dyna­mics, and gPROMS)
  • inde­pen­dent, goal- and solu­tion-ori­en­ted way of working
  • inter­di­sci­pli­nary and team-ori­en­ted thin­king
  • con­fi­dent com­mand of the Ger­man and Eng­lish lan­guages, both writ­ten and spo­ken.
  • Know­ledge of mode­ling and simu­la­tion of mecha­ni­cal sepa­ra­tion pro­ces­ses in waste manage­ment desi­ra­ble.

What we offer:

Are you enthu­si­astic about rese­arch and deve­lop­ment work for digi­ta­li­za­tion in the pro­cess indus­try? Do you like to learn some­thing new every day? Then the team of the chair of Pro­cess Con­trol Sys­tems and the Pro­cess Sys­tems Engi­nee­ring group offers you just the right oppor­tu­nities. Our inter­na­tio­nal team of pro­cess engi­neers, auto­ma­tion engi­neers, infor­ma­tion sys­tems engi­neers and data sci­en­tists is working on solu­ti­ons for the future of the pro­cess indus­try. Fur­ther infor­ma­tion on the Chair of Pro­cess Con­trol Sys­tem can be found on: .
