For Research Associate (Post-doc level):

You have a university PhD degree in the field of civil engineering, material science, and/or wood science and engineering. In-depth knowledge in the fields of wood science and engineering, concrete structures, numerical simulation, analytical modelling, and structural analysis at micro and macro-levels as well as mechanical characterization of timber-concrete composite materials and structures is particularly desirable.

You are expected to carry out both fundamental- and application-oriented research on the interfacial bond and durability modelling of adhesively bonded FRP-timber composite structures. Meanwhile, you are expected to support and assist the Junior Research Group Leader with the project management and supervision of research assistant (PhD student) in the same field. Moreover, a strong commitment to interdisciplinary research, the acquisition of major and collaborative R&D projects including fundamental and applied research is expected.

For Research Assistant (PhD student):

You have a university degree (MSc.) or equivalent in the field of civil engineering, material science, and/or wood science and engineering. Basic knowledge in the fields of wood science and engineering, material science, structural analysis as well as mechanical characterization of timber-concrete composite materials and structures is particularly desirable.

You are expected to carry out fundamental-oriented research on the interfacial bond and durability modelling of adhesively-bonded timber-concrete composite structures. The collaboration within the research group is essential.

An excellent level of English is essential. Basic German language skill is preferable.

The position is limited to 3 years, with chance of promotion to post-doc level after graduation.

For both positions:

Employment, remuneration and benefits are governed by the Civil Service Collective Agreement (TVöD).People with disabilities are given preference if equally qualified.
