Description of the offer :

We are looking for a Postdoctoral interested in developing a new approach for converting low temperature waste heat to electricity by using shape memory alloys. This work includes the design, construction, and evaluation of a novel demonstrator using shape memory materials as active component. This research is connected to our recent work, where we used magnetocaloric materials for this type of energy conversion (Nature Energy (2019), DOI: 10.1038/s41560-018-0306-x) and accordingly part of the knowledge and technology can be re-used for a fast progress.

The ideal candidate for this position has completed a PhD in material science, engineering or physics. Experimental knowledge on shape memory alloys and their integration into devices is helpful. Experience or interest in modelling mechanical and thermal subsystems are beneficial.

Application (in English or German) including a cover letter with motivational statement, CV, copies of certificates, list of publications and other relevant material (if applicable) quoting the reference number DM2103-3-FEH/2019 in a single PDF file exclusively to: bewerbung@ifw-dresden.de

Deadline for applications: 28 February 2019
