Position: Scientist/Engineer - antenna and front-end design for space observation radar
Institution: Fraunhofer-Institut für Hochfrequenzphysik und Radartechnik
Location: Wachtberg, Nordrhein‐Westfalen, Germany
Duties: Design of an optimum arrangement of an L-band/Ka-band/W-band radar configuration under the constraints of the primary and the secondary reflector of TIRA; Investigating a quasi-optical beam steering versus a classical wave-guided arrangement for the Ka-band radar system and comparison of the two concepts; Design and realization of an optimum beam steering for the Ka-band radar system; Breadboarding, assembly and testing of the system; Integration and commissioning into the TIRA system
Requirements: Completed university degree in electrical engineering, physics, or mathematics; Profound knowledge in the theory of electromagnetic waves and high-frequency engineering; Ideally, professional experience in high-frequency engineering, communications engineering or radar technology; Good programming knowledge in MATLAB, Python or another comparable programming language; Good language skills (spoken and written) in German and English; Project-oriented work

JOIN OUR TEAM DEVELOPPING AN INNOVATIVE RADAR FOR SPACE RECONNAISSANCE. THE DEPARTMENT “RADAR FOR SPACE OBSERVATION” OF THE FRAUNHOFER INSTITUTE FHR OFFERS A POSITION AS Scientist / Engineer - antenna and front-end design for space observation radar The Fraunhofer-Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques FHR in Wachtberg near Bonn is part of the large Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and one of the leading and largest European research institutes in the field. We develop concepts, methods and systems for electromagnetic sensor technology, particularly for radar and radiometry. The department “Radar for Space Observation” (RWB) focuses on the development of innovative methods and technologies for the detection and reconnaissance of space objects - from active satellites to space debris. The department RWB operates the Tracking and Imaging Radar TIRA, which is unique in Europe and provides valuable support for space situational awareness. In order to improve the imaging capabilities of the TIRA system, a new imaging radar in the Ka-band will replace the current imaging radar. You will join the team designing, developing and integrating this new imaging radar into the TIRA system. Your tasks are Design of an optimum arrangement of an L-band/Ka-band/W-band radar configuration under the constraints of the primary and the secondary reflector of TIRAInvestigating a quasi-optical beam steering versus a classical wave-guided arrangement for the Ka-band radar system and comparison of the two conceptsDesign and realization of an optimum beam steering for the Ka-band radar systemBreadboarding, assembly and testing of the systemIntegration and commissioning into the TIRA system What we expect from you Completed university degree in electrical engineering, physics, or mathematics Profound knowledge in the theory of electromagnetic waves and high-frequency engineeringIdeally, professional experience in high-frequency engineering, communications engineering or radar technologyGood programming knowledge in MATLAB, Python or another comparable programming language Good language skills (spoken and written) in German and EnglishProject-oriented work You are dedicated to your work, motivated, able to work under pressure and capable to manage complex scientific and technical problems both self-initiated and in a team. What you can expect from us Open and collegial working environment in a professional research facility equipped with modern machineryAdditional performance- and profit-related variable compensation componentsRoom for innovative ideas and within the own research area as well as promotion of publications to build reputation and visibility in science and industryAbove-average, promoted educational culture with a wide range of opportunities for personal development, e.g. through participation in specialized fairs, conferences, workshops and seminars as well as internal support programsFamily-friendly culture, co-child office, support from external service providers in emergency care for children and relativesFlexible working hours for a good work-life balance (39-hour week, flextime system and bridge day regulation)Supplementary pension (VBL) and job ticketCanteen and nearby shopping facilities Appointment, remuneration and social security benefits based on the public-sector collective wage agreement (TVöD). The weekly working time accounts for 39,00 hours. If circumstances will allow it is possible to share the position between two part-time employees. The position will be filled preliminary for a period of 3 years. In case of identical qualifications preference will be given to severely disabled candidates.We would like to point out that the chosen job title also includes the third gender. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft emphasises gender-independent professional equality. Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas.
