Motivation and Goals
We are looking for a motivated Post Doc researcher for our industrial and applied basic science projects. You will develop new concepts for experimental planning, for monitoring with hard and soft sensors, for scale down systems, for hybrid modelling and multivariate control of bioprocesses. Thereby, we target mammalian and microbial processes equally.
You will team lead a small group of PhD and master students, coordinate research tasks with industrial partners and also participate in active lab work. The research activities will be, to a small extent, accompanied by teaching in the bachelor and master curriculum of biochemical engineering.
Motivation and Goals of this Position
Economic and safe production of drop in chemicals, enzymes and recombinant proteins using bioprocesses need strategies for more efficient experimental design, as well as monitoring and advanced multiparametric control strategies. We strongly believe that hybrid models, mixtures of mechanistic and data driven models, in its interaction with digitalization and Industry 4.0 solutions can be used as powerful methods for model based experimental design and control of bioprocesses.
Within this context, we are looking for a motivated PhD student for innovative process solutions! The work will be mainly focused on i) Mechanistic and hybrid modelling, (ii) experimental design, iii) continuous bioprocessing, and (iv) model based monitoring and control approaches.
