ForWind, the Center for Wind Energy Research of the Universities of Bremen, Hannover and Oldenburg, has a vacancy for a


Scientific Assistant (m/f/d)

(E13 TV-L, 100 %)


to work on tasks in the third-party funded project "DFWind - Phase 2". The funding is provided by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. Due to the limited duration of this project, the position advertised here is limited until 30.11.2023. The position is suitable for part-time work. It starts on 15.08.2021.


Brief description of the project: The research project "DFWind - Phase 2" is a joint research project of the partners DLR, University of Bremen, Leibniz University Hannover, Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg and Enercon/Wobben Research and Development GmbH. In the course of the project, a test field for wind energy research, which will have four meteorological masts, two multi-MW wind turbines and a central data management system, among other things, will be further upgraded for research.


Your tasks in the project: You will accompany the installation and acceptance of extensive meteorological sensor technology at the test site. You will plan measurement campaigns with supplementary sensors, such as eddy covariance stations, which should allow a precise description of the inflow conditions for the wind turbines in the test field. You will collect the experiences of the users of the central data management system and develop proposals for a further development of this system on the feedback given by the users. You will develop a central tertiary data management system at ForWind-Oldenburg for deriving further information from the data measured at the test site.


The prerequisite for employment is a completed scientific university degree (master/diploma) in meteorology, physics, mathematics, computer science, an engineering science or a comparable course of study.


A key requirement for the successful candidate is extensive experience in at least one of the two areas:


(a) conceptual design, implementation and evaluation of meteorological measurement campaigns. Experience from micrometeorological measurement campaigns is of particular advantage.

(b) Conceptual design and development of data management systems.


In addition, we expect very good communication skills and the ability to work in a team as well as good skills in English language. German language skills are an advantage, but not mandatory.


The Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg strives to increase the number of women in the scientific field. Therefore, women are strongly encouraged to apply. According to § 21, para. 3 NHG, female applicants will be given preferential consideration if their qualifications are equivalent. Severely disabled persons will be given preference in the case of equal suitability.
