The Institute for the Protection of Terrestrial Infrastructures aims at the stable supply of society. The development of methods for detecting and defending against threats is just as much a part of the tasks as improved management in the event of major emergencies.

In the department "Digital Twins for Infrastructures", complex networked supply systems, socio-technical interrelationships as well as buildings and technical facilities are modeled and simulated in terms of structure and behavior.

By tracking the models with real-time data and providing intelligent tools for crisis teams and emergency forces, digital twins are created that provide new possibilities for monitoring and responding to crises.

They also provide a basis for analyzing and optimizing the resilience of terrestrial infrastructures.

Digital Twins represent a physical instance as closely as possible within the digital world. Through continuous twinning using real-time sensor data the Digital Twin enables by the use of models or adaption of the data from similar instances a prediction of behavior of the real instance.

Additionally, the Digital Twin is able to parallelly evaluate prognosis and optimization possibilities by analyzing the current state and context of the Digital Twin.

The added values of the Digital Twin can be improved by increasing the number of data sources, mapped instances or connections made.

The most decisive challenge is the necessary, highly complex flexibility of the platform considering various applications, the combination of diverse data sources and models of partial systems, and the communication between distinct data suppliers.

The resulting complexity should be treated by a standardized approach using modular components and connectors. The resulting Cloud-Computing Platform plays a major role for the feasibility and added value of future Digital Twins and shell improve the management of research data.

Your mission is the Design and Development of a highly complex Cloud-Computing Research Platform for Digital Twins.

This includes the following responsibilities :

  • conception of an innovative research platform based on Cloud-Computing for the development of Digital Twins considering newest technologies within the DLR framework
  • identification of challenges considering the implementation of the platform and the user management
  • development of complex strategies to further develop, implement and operate such a novel research platform including data interfaces as well as interface management with respect to the use of the Cloud-Computing Platform in different application fields
  • evaluating the platform regarding usability and adaptability with respect to diverse user groups and applications
  • coordination of the implementation and integration of the platform
  • You will contribute to enhance the added value of Digital Twins through the connection of real-time sensor data to Digital Twins.

    Furthermore, the DT-Cloud-Computing Platform enables the application of Digital Twins within crisis situation and therefore supports decision-makers and emergency personnel during all phases of crisis situations.

    You will implement your ideas in a dynamic and innovative institute of the German Aerospace Center. You can expect an advanced team spirit, excellent infrastructure with state-of-the-art equipment and current development environments.

    We also actively support you in your professional and scientific development.

  • university degree (master's / diploma) in a natural science field ( computer science physics, mathematics)
  • many years of practical work and research experience int the field of Cloud-Computing and software development
