Technische Universität Braunschweig
is looking for
two full-time research associates (m/f/d)
for the
Junior Research Group “Wiring Technologies”.

You are an open-minded and well-structured team player
with a Master’s degree in engineering or physics?
You are interested in working in an inspiring, interdisciplinary team at a
renowned university in a professional yet informal environment?
You want to answer relevant research questions for the mobility of the future?

Then it’s time to apply for a position in the JRG Wiring Technologies!

Within our group, we want to strengthen our research on the following topics:

Topic 1 - Superconducting cables are seen as a promising solution for lightweight electrical power
systems in future aircraft. Your activities include research on superconducting cable constructions,
cryogenic cooling technologies and wire bushings. This work also includes the design of
appropriate experimental setups in close collaboration with colleagues experienced in climatic and
cryogenic testing.

Topic 2 - A visionary electrical drive system for aircraft consists of superconducting cables,
superconducting electrical machines, cryogenically cooled power electronics and runs on cryogenic
liquid hydrogen. An upcoming research project led by TU Braunschweig will investigate the
feasibility of this concept. Your task within JRG Wiring Technologies will be to set up a system
simulation model to analyze mutual dependencies between the different subsystems and to find
global system optima.

When applying for a position in the JRG Wiring Technologies, please highlight your motivation for
working with us. Of course, you may already indicate your preference for a research topic. Please
also provide supporting documents regarding CV, education, professional experiences, publications,
diplomas or certificates.

Please send your application by March 1st, 2024 via email to
