German Trainee Programme (GTP) Engineer Aeronautics, Mechanical Engineer or similar

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research centre and the space agency of the Federal Republic of Germany. Here, 8000 employees work together on a unique variety of topics in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation. Their missions range from basic research to the development of innovative applications and products for tomorrow. Cutting-edge research requires excellent minds – particularly more females – at all levels, who fully achieve their potential in an inspiring environment. Launch your mission with us.

 

For our German Trainee Programme (GTP) in cooperation with ESTEC in Noordwijk, Netherlands, we wish to recruit a qualified


Engineer Aeronautics, Mechanical Engineer or similar

Chemical Propulsion Systems Analysis and Design (TEC-MPC)


Your mission:

Have you (almost) completed your degree studies? Are you inspired by space exploration and keen to pursue a career in this exciting field? If so, perhaps you should take a closer look at the German Trainee Programme. Organised by DLR, it offers you the chance to work shoulder to shoulder with experts from the 22 member states of ESA – keeping your finger on the pulse of Europe‘s space programmes. Over a period up to 24 months, you will actively contribute to the latest research and/or technology projects. This is complemented by a generous scholarship. What better way to launch your career in international space business? The next GTP commences on 1st February 2019.



The Propulsion Engineering Section (TEC-MPC) has the following tasks:


  • provide expert technical support and consultancy in launcher propulsion (liquid, including storable and cryogenic technologies, and solid propulsion) and spacecraft (various chemical propulsion technologies) to the Agency project teams responsible for the development of launchers and spacecraft, throughout all project phases

  • contribute to the preparation of work plans in the areas of launcher and spacecraft propulsion in the Agency’s technological programmes, with a particular contribution expected on systems and new propulsion aspects

  • prepare and manage, from a technical perspective, ESA contracts for studies, experimental investigations and engineering development activities in space propulsion

  • contribute to the distribution of the results of the activities performed and the transfer of knowledge across the Agency



Tasks:


  • analysis of existing and prospective Satellite-based PNT systems from a service volume point of view (coverage in realistic environments, availability, accuracy) and from a user point of view (user application, high level receiver architecture, complexity and cost, power consumption and integration in user platforms, etc)

  • analysis of existing and prospective terrestrial PNT systems from a service volume point of view (coverage in realistic environments, availability, accuracy) and from a user point of view

  • analysis of the capabilities of PNT sensor augmentation systems (inertial units, magnetometers, cameras, …) in combination with other PNT systems

  • assessment of the synergies and weaknesses of the different PNT systems versus GNSS

  • synthesis of recommendations and system-level specifications for the GALILEO 2nd Generation in order to make it fit optimally in the future PNT landscape

  • the work requires the development and usage of analytical and simulation tools

Your qualifications:


  • general knowledge about space propulsion systems, as well as some programming experience in VBA or any other higher programming language are essential for this specific task

  • German citizenship is absolutely necessary

  • applicants should have just completed (conclusion not older than two years) or be in their final year of a university course at Master’s level in a technical or scientific discipline

  • candidates must be fluent in English or French, the official languages of the Agency

Your start:

We look forward to your e-mail application in English, citing GTP-2019-TEC-MPC to GTP@dlr.de. Closing date for this position is 6th September 2018. The interviews are tentatively scheduled for week 45/2018. Please visit the German Trainee Programme page for details of our application procedures. Your application should consist of a motivation letter and your CV only (CV exclusively in Europass format). Unfortunately we cannot consider further documents. Disabled applicants with equivalent qualifications will be given preferential treatment. If you have any initial questions, please feel free to contact Ms. Larissa Seidlez: larissa.seidlez@dlr.de.
