TUHH will establish a Research Center for Energy Systems (CES) to meet the technical and societal challenges resulting from the ongoing transition towards a greenhouse gas neutral energy supply system. This research center will be part of the “Green Technologies” focal area of TUHH and will bring together seven different institutes to work on inter- and trans-disciplinary research topics. The goal is to tackle key research questions crossing technological, economic and environmental research fields.
The advertised positions for professorships in this context include management functions and are located at the intersection of process engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and civil engineering.
Willingness and ability to cooperate and collaborate, therefore, is considered essential for the success of the center. The positions are to be filled at the earliest convenience.
IN THE FIELD OF
DIGITALIZATION AND ENERGY
The ideal candidate will have a background in energy systems, energy economics,
energy markets and computer science with experience in research related e.g. to
liberalized energy markets, optimization of energy systems, software based solutions
for optimized energy systems and/or development of software tools to support a
better interaction between the electricity sector and other parts of the overall energy
system. The scientific focus of this professorship as part of the School of Mechanical
Engineering is on contributions to digitalize our energy system to make it more
resilient even under changing framework conditions. Research activities from one
or more of the following subject areas are expected:
