RWTH Aachen - AVT-Process Systems Engineering

The chair of Process Systems Engineering (AVT.SVT) is part of Aachener Verfahrenstechnik, was founded in 1993 by Prof Wolfgang Marquardt and is directed since 2012 by Prof. Alexander Mitsos, PhD.

Our research covers different topics of process systems engineering which link chemical engineering with computational engineering science.

It is focused on the development of basic principles of mathematical modeling, the combination of experiments and modeling, conceptual process design, process operations and control as well as the development of numerical algorithms and software-tools.

The methodological aspect is complemented by applications in the process industries.

You have demons­tra­ted rese­arch capa­bi­lity. You have a very strong tech­ni­cal back­ground as indi­ca­ted by your excel­lent gra­des. You enjoy and are capa­ble of inter­di­sci­pli­nary coope­ra­tion and you have very good com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills. You have expe­ri­ence in mode­ling tech­ni­cal sys­tems and in com­pu­ta­ti­ons.

Please send a com­plete app­li­ca­tion, inclu­ding a short let­ter of moti­va­tion, a detailed CV inclu­ding gra­des and list of publi­ca­ti­ons/pre­sen­ta­ti­ons, copies of all tran­scripts (high school degree, BSc/MSc, doc­to­rate) and if pos­si­ble two let­ters of recom­men­da­tion.

Know­ledge of Ger­man is not requi­red but very hel­pful.

What we of­fer:

The posi­tion is for 1 year and is to be fil­led as soon as pos­si­ble. This is a full-time posi­tion.
