Student Assistants (HiWi)(f/m/d) in the Research Group Systems, Data, Simulation & Energy (SYDSEN)
The research assistants will support the scientific staff of the Systems, Data, Simulation & Energy (SYDSEN) research group. The SYDSEN research group concentrates on the use of data for providing decision support and enhancing energy efficiency, reliability and other performance metrics of cyber-physical systems, such as energy systems or smart manufacturing systems. In particular, our focus is on the development of new methods and approaches for data-driven modeling and simulation and its seamless integration with expert knowledge.
The positions are linked to our project ONE4ALL (Horizon Europe 2022), which aims to boost manufacturing plants’ transformation, especially SMEs, towards industry 5.0 (I5.0), reinforcing their resilience under unexpected changes in social needs. Our part in this project is the digital replication of the physical modules and processes through data-driven digital twins and controlled by a self-learning AI-based distributed and multidisciplinary decision support system (DSS).
The tasks include: • Gathering data requirements and linking them to objectives • Working on developing an architecture for digital twins of manufacturing systems • Regular communication with project partners and demonstrators (manufacturing facilities) • Implementing a proof of concept for the above tasks • Documenting all tasks and outcomes
Qualifications and Skills: We are looking for highly motivated students (Bachelor or Master level) in computer science, industrial engineering, information sciences or similar, preferably at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) • Knowledge and experience in the development of software applications, preferably in Python and/or Java • Basic knowledge of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, Information Extraction and/or Data Science • Experience and knowledge in modeling, simulation, digital twins and manufacturing systems is a plus • Willingness and ability to communicate with project partners of different backgrounds • Sufficient language skills in English to work in an international team
We offer: • A contract with 20-80h per month (the salary depends on the university degree). The contract can last between 2 and 6 months. • Flexible working hours, also working at home possible. • A variety of tasks so that you can learn a lot. Also state-of-the-art research can be performed and will be published together with the student.
The payment is based on the rates of the state of Baden-Württemberg for academic assistants. The employment is temporary.
