PhD Research in Aerospace Engineering at ZARM and IFE, Germany

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

Within the Hannover excellence cluster QUEST (Centre for Quantum Engineering and Space-Time Research), ZARM and IFE investigate concepts for future geodetic satellite missions. Precise satellite attitude and pointing control is a key component of such missions, e.g., for the inter-satellite ranging systems of the GRACE and GRACE Follow On missions. The candidate will review attitude control concepts meeting the specific requirements of a twin satellite inter-satellite ranging mission. He will implement satellite models in an existing ZARM simulator, carry out simulations on attitude dynamics, and investigate attitude control performance.

-We expect the candidate to have a Dipl.-Ing. or MSc degree in aerospace engineering, physics, electrical engineering or a related field.

Deadline: 30.07.2011
