With immediate effect we are looking for our team, in full-time, Post-Doctoral Researcher in UAV Design and Testing About us As member of the department of Aerospace and Geodesy at the Technical University Munich the Chair for Aircraft Design is focusing on the design of manned and unmanned aircraft. The research is dedicated to the areas of ,,scenario analysis, future trends and technologies", ,,aircraft design for civil and military operations" and ,,opera-tional analysis and evaluation". The combination of these research focus areas provides an ideal platform for in-terdisciplinary research in simulation and experimental validation, including experimental flight testing.

Tasks The chair is involved in multiple research projects focussing on novel UAV solutions for a variety of applications. It would be your task to join with the team of researchers to come up with novel solutions and enable the success-ful demonstration of the technologies, systems and aircraft designs in ground and flight testing. Jointly with the technician of the chair you will be responsible for the management of the integration lab as well as the flight test hangar at the research airport in Oberpfaffenhofen, which will start operation in autumn this year. Besides research activities you will also contribute to the lectures and organizational tasks of the institute.
