Job description:

The aim of the DLR-Institute of Quantum Technologies in Ulm is to develop precision instruments for space applications based on quantum technologies and, in close cooperation with industry, mature them into prototypes. It thus provides a bridge between fundamental research and industry. Together with the DLR-Institute for Satellite Geodesy and Inertial Sensing in Hannover and the Galileo Competence Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, the institute in Ulm plays a pioneering role in these fields of research and application. The research of the four core departments Quantum Metrology, Quantum Information and Communication, Quantum Nanophysics, and Quantum Control of Charged Matter Waves is complemented by support from three cross-sectional departments of Quantum Engineering, Integration of Micro- and Nanosystems, and Theoretical Quantum Physics. The institute works in an interdisciplinary way, where fundamental theoretical research and experimental tests meets engineering.

We are looking for a position in the division Quantum Engineering. You are going to be part of the team preparing the atom-optical experiment BECCAL for the international space station (ISS). You are leading the efforts on the control electronics and the included product assurance activities. This includes the preparation of the design, prototyping, and AIVT activities. You are going to be involved in all steps of the process and are key to the realization of the project.

Your tasks include:

  • leading the realization of the electronics subsystem in close collaboration with a dynamic team of scientists and engineers
  • assemble, integrate, verify, and test the payload for BECCAL
  • design the high-performance electronic
  • develop and execute product assurance activities
  • research in the area of microelectronics and high frequency electronics
  • review of the current design with respect to implementation, completeness, and applicable standards and regulations
  • prepare and execute all verification activities for the electronics
  • communication to external and internal partners, as well as DLR and NASA
  • exchange of scientific results on international conferences and through publications

This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. With more than 42,000 employees and an annual budget of over € 5 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany's largest scientific organisation.
