SWE is internationally recognized for expertise and leadership in the area of wind lidar for wind energy applications. We develop lidar hardware, explore new applications, and work with end users to transfer research results into everyday use. We lead nationally-funded projects around wind lidar on land and offshore, and since 2011 have helped manage IEA Wind Task 32 on wind lidar.

Your responsibilities:

You will 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. Connections with relevant organizations and familiarity with German, EU, and other relevant funding processes would advantangeous.

You will also be responsible for helping make IEA Wind Task 32 a success. You should be well connected in the international wind lidar community and be familiar the challenges with running international projects. Experience with IEA Wind Tasks is preferred.

In addition to the research activities, you will support SWE’s teaching activities such as holding lectures, define and manage research projects including student theses, and be involved with other activities to support SWE.

We 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  developing or using 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.
  • Experience of leadership and collaboration
  • 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.
