The Institute of Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology


The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e. V. (HZDR) has an excellent reputation as an international competence centre for research in the sectors health, energy and matter with more than 1,100 employees. HZDR is a member of Germany’s largest research organisation – Helmholtz Association (HGF). Further information can be found at http://www.hzdr.de.

The Institute of Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology invites applications as
PhD Student (m/f)

The position will be available from May 2016. The employment contract is limited to three years. The regular weekly working time will be 19,5 hours per week. The salary is based on the collective agreement TVöD-Bund. The place of work is Freiberg.

Requirements:
- Diploma or Master degree in the field of Engineering, Process Metallurgy, Non-ferrous metallurgy, High Temperature Process Engineering, Recycling or related field experimental skills
- very good teamwork skills with ability to work in a strong international and interdisciplinary research team
- proficiency in spoken and written English
- ability for independent work organization and motivation
Tasks: Electric and electronic equipment (EEE) often contain in excess of 40 elements in various functional materials. These impart the unique functionality of the EEE. When these products are recycled and processed metallurgically in furnaces as a first processing step, the elements distribute thermodynamically between the phases created in the reactor. While a Iot of distribution data exists for elements found in concentrates, the unusual combination of elements and materials in WEEE has not been investigated much. This project will select one or two of these elements and investigate experimentally their distribution between metal and a chosen slag system or two for various temperature and oxygen potential conditions. The produced data will be used to better understand the recovery of elements for different smelting technology such as Kaldo (or Top Blown Rotary Converter), Top Submerged Lance (TSL), plasma torch smelting (Tetronics) and other bath smelting technologies. These data are crucially required to quantify resource efficiency as well as provide the data that can estimate how well a Circular Economy will be able to recover elements and therefore “close the loop”. Come and do real work that truly lies at the heart of quantifying sustainability working at the cutting edge of the recycling of metals. The project is in cooperation with the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg, Professor M. Stelter.

For further information, please contact Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Markus Reuter, Tel.: +49 351 260 - 4411.

Please submit your complete application (cover letter, CV, certificates, …) by 11 March 2016 via Online application https://www.hzdr.de/jobs.

Equal opportunities are an integral part of our personnel policy, we therefore particularly welcome applications from qualified women. Severely disabled persons are given priority where applicants are equally qualified.

COMPUTATIONAL MATERIALS EXPERT

NASA LANGLEY RESEARCH CENTER
Hampton, Virginia


The NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia is seeking an expert in computational materials. This expert will serve in a Senior Scientific and Professional (ST) civil service position in the Research Directorate, a leader in research and technology development capabilities required by the present and future needs of our Aeronautics Research, Exploration and Space Operations, Space Technologies, and Science stakeholders. NASA has been performing computational materials research over the past two decades with an emphasis on the systematic, critical and intensive search for scientific knowledge that can then be applied to the development of lightweight advanced materials and structures for aerospace applications. The challenges are formidable, with exceptional and rewarding opportunities to pursue scientific discovery by exploiting the vast untapped potential of the computational design, development and deployment of advanced engineered materials.

The successful candidate for this position is expected to:
  • Lead and participate in activities aimed at advancing the state-of-the-art in understanding the fundamental physical phenomena associated with materials properties and behavior using computational methodologies, interactions between multiple length and time scales, and by identifying practical approaches to reduce the time of the insertion of new materials for aeronautics and exploration applications.
  • Interface with experts within the materials, structures, and complementary fields (such as material science, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computer science) to identify collaborative research and apply his/her knowledge and experience to the investigation of these research topics.
  • Advocate for agency programmatic support and establish collaborations with other government agencies, industry, and academia.
  • Couple improved computational modeling and experimental techniques for design of multifunctional materials, and serve as a critical link between academia, industry, and other Government agencies.
  • Publish results of his/her work in peer-reviewed journals, present invited lectures in international forums, serve as a mentor and resource to other researchers in the field, and participate in center, agency and national level committees. Creativity, Ambition, Teamwork.

A sense of daring. A probing mind. That’s what it takes to join NASA, ranked first in the Government’s Best Places to Work in 2012 and 2013.
