The TUM International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE) is sponsored by the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments with more than 15 million Euros in funds for the period 2006-2017.

The IGSSE integrates Natural and Engineering Sciences through graduate and postgraduate education strongly rooted in TUM´s internationally renowned research environment. So far, IGSSE´s research areas have included :

  • Computational Science & Engineering,
  • Biomedical Engineering,
  • Nanotechnology & Advanced Materials,
  • Geodynamics & Environment.

——————————-Quick Overview———————–

Organization  Technical University of Munich
Fellowship Level  PhD
Country  Germany
Subject areas  Engineering
Fellowship amount  1700 €
Eligibility  International students can apply
Deadline  Varies

Position 1:  PhD position (f/m) full time starting as soon as possible  at Technical University of Munich, Institute of Flight System Dynamics. The anticipated project start is no later than April 2016, the successful candidate will be located at the Institute of Flight System Dynamics. The project duration is 3 years.

The researchers in the project are required to build up a high fidelity simulation model of a ski jump, including flight dynamics and aerodynamic effects. After validating the model, it should be used to perform jump optimizations as well as parameter and sensitivity studies leading to the identification of the most relevant influences and measures for performance optimizations in a real ski jump.

Major Tasks Involved

Eligibility / Requirements

  • Master in engineering above average or similar
  • Good programming skills (C/C++, Matlab, Simulink)
  • Passion for the application of research results in the field of high-performance sports
  • Autonomous way of working and the ability to work in an international team, high motivation
  • Good English skills

The Institute of Flight System Dynamics offers the possibility for further scientific and applied qualification while working on current and relevant research topics. Within the research group you will become a member of a highly motivated, international and autonomous team that will support you during your personal and scientific development. You will be working highly autonomously and you will get the chance to take responsibilities in the group as well as the whole institute.

Your salary is calculated based on TV-L E13.

TUM seeks to increase the number of women in areas in which they are underrepresented. Therefore, we particularly encourage qualified women to apply. TUM further aims to hire more people with disabilities and also encourages them to apply for research positions.

Position 2 : 1 PhD position (f/m, scholarship) starting from March 2016 for the project duration of 3 years. The project´s main goal is the identification of possible performance improvements and the derivation of measures to describe and quantify ski jumping performance.

The applicant is required to collect experimental data and to build up a biomechanical model for simulating a ski jump. Together in a team of members of the Department of Biomechanics in Sports and the Institute of Flight System
Dynamics, TUM, experimental and modeled data will be used for the validation of the ski jump model in order to analyze flight dynamics and aerodynamic effects that can be used for jump performance optimizations as well as prediction of risk factors for injury surveillance.

Major Tasks

  •  Data acquisition within an experimental study design for biomechanical modelling of ski jumping
  •  Generating relevant parameters for prediction of jumping performance and injury risk
  •  Support at engineering a high fidelity simulation of a ski jump
  •  Research in close cooperation with the Institute of Flight System Dynamics of TUM
  •  Autonomous work on a research project including aspects of project management
  • Requirements:
  •  MSc/ Diploma/ etc. in the field of sport science/ Kinesiology/ Biomechanical engineering above average
  •  Well versed in motion analysis, experience in biomechanical modelling
  •  Programming skills advantageous
  •  Passion for the application of research results in the field of high-performance sports
  •  Autonomous way of working and the ability to work in an international and multidisciplinary team
  •  Good English skills

Your salary is calculated based on a scholarship of TUM (1700 € plus consumables).

How to Apply: We are looking forward to receiving your application documents sent until January 31st to the email address below.
