TitlePhD positions: transfer processes in novel energy systems
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerBTU Cottbus-Senftenberg
LocationGermany, Brandenburg, Cottbus
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
The newly established Young Investigator Group (YIG) Advanced Modeling and 
Simulation of Transfer Processes for Next Generation Energy Systems at the 
Energy Innovation Center (EIZ) in Cottbus is looking for ambitious, numerically 
oriented PhD students in transfer fluids and multiphysical boundary layers:

1) Complex heat transfer with application to heat pumps and heat exchangers.

2) Fluctuating wind field modeling and prediction down to the turbine scale.

3) Multiphase effects and transfer processes in energy storage and conversion.

Successful candidates will be working in an international group of engineers, 
physicists, and mathematicians. Potential candidates should be motivated to 
perform fundamental research that is linked to applications. We seek applicants 
with a scientific attitude, a strong background in applied physics or 
mathematics, and with an open mind towards novel methods. 

Candidates should possess a very good Master (M.Sc.) degree in a relevant 
engineering or natural sciences discipline.

Good command of the English language and solid knowledge of at least one 
programming language is a must. 

Experience in at least two of the following fields is desired: scientific 
computing, programming, numerical methods, partial differential equations, CFD, 
numerical modeling of multiphase flows, stochastic processes, stochastic 
methods, and/or data-driven modeling.

The Young Investigator Group (YIG) is part of the Scientific Computing Lab (SCL) 
at the Energy Innovation Center (EIZ). The YIG is hosted by the Chair of 
Numerical Fluid and Gas Dynamics of the Brandenburg University of Technology 
(BTU) Cottbus-Senftenberg. The mission of the EIZ is to bundle transdisciplinary 
research activities on next generation energy systems by connecting departments 
from BTU with federal research institutions and companies. 

The city of Cottbus is located about 100 km South of Berlin and 100 km 
North-East of Dresden in the area state of Brandenburg. It owns the BTU main 
campus, which is in the heart of Lusatia. Latter is one of the three major 
energy regions of Germany, which is currently becoming a center for clean energy 

In case you are interested, please contact us via sending your CV (preferably in 
PDF format) to Please use YIG-PHD as subject in the e-mail.
