Wissenschaftl. Stellen


SWE is internationally recognized for expertise and leadership in the area of wind lidar for wind energy applications. We develop new lidar hardware, explore new applications, and look at how existing research technologies can be transferred into everyday use. SWE has been a driving force in the adoption of wind lidar for wind turbine and wind plant controls, which will continue to be an important application in the future. We lead projects on land and offshore, and since 2011 have helped manage IEA Wind Task 32 on wind lidar.

Your responsibilities:

We are looking for someone to help drive the development of wind lidar technologies at SWE. Working together with the existing team, you will be responsible for identifying and pursuing research opportunities at a national and international level as well as supporting and executing existing projects. You will also be responsible for helping make IEA Wind Task 32 a success.

In addition to the research activities, tasks will include supporting SWE’s teaching activities (lectures and supervision of student theses), managing research projects, and other activities within SWE as required to support SWE.

What we can offer you:

  • An internationally recognized, dynamic, and motivated team of researchers
  • A versatile and interdisciplinary job with high visibility
  • Connections to international research institutions and companies active in wind energy.


  • Prior experience in the development or use of wind lidar.
  • A Doctoral degree (or equivalent) in related fields such as engineering, meteorology, mathematics, or physics.
  • Alternatively, a Master’s degree and 5 years of professional experience in a related field.
  • Basic knowledge of wind energy is beneficial.
  • Creativity, analytical skills, and perseverance for scientific work.
  • Excellent communication skills in spoken and written English are required. Similar German-language skills would be an advantage.
