The Digitalized Energy Systems Group (Prof. Dr.-Ing. Astrid Nieße), Department of Computing Science of the University of Oldenburg invites applications for a

Research associate (PhD candidate) (m/f/d)

The position is full time (100 %), pay rate E13 TV-L, DFG-funded, for a period of three years with the possibility of extension until February 29, 2028. The position is suitable for part-time work.

The resilient and optimized operation of fully renewable and digitalized energy systems requires new paradigms in system governance. Therefore, self-organization and intelligent agent systems are the focus of the work of the Digitalized Energy Systems Group. In this context, the distributed components of an energy system are equipped with intelligence and autonomy and networked with each other... to cooperatively solve complex optimization and control tasks.

In the context the national research data infrastructure for interdisciplinary energy system research , we want to pursue research questions in the area of distributed artificial intelligence in energy systems to develop better procedures for handling research data and software.

Your tasks:
• You will investigate how distributed artificial intelligence for controlling energy assets can be used to increase the robustness and resilience of the energy system.
• You will extend existing approaches to represent the flexibility of energy assets.
• Together with project partners, you will derive best practices for handling research data and software in energy system research and support your colleagues in their application.

What you offer:
• You have successfully completed a relevant scientific university degree (Master or Diploma) in computer science / business informatics or a computer science-related field.
• You are interested in doing a PhD, independent scientific work, publishing and presenting scientific results, and collaborating with scientific partners.
• You have a very good knowledge of English (language level B2 or better) for scientific discussions.
• You can program object-oriented in high-level languages (e.g. Python, Java, C#, ...).
• You like to work your way into existing (open source) software.
• You are curious and like to learn new topics and technologies in computer science and digitalized energy systems independently.
• Knowledge in digitalized energy systems is an advantage, but not absolutely necessary.

What we offer:
• You can look forward to a working environment that is very pleasant in human terms and extremely exciting in technical terms.
• We actively support you in your further professional and scientific qualification. The project offers the opportunity to work on a doctoral thesis.
• Compatibility of career and family are important to us - we support this with flexible working hours, part-time options and home office.
• Tolerance, openness, and equal opportunities for people of all genders (m/f/d) are important to us.
