Current vacancies


The Department of Power Electronics is always looking for talented applicants with an above-average degree in electrical engineering. We offer joint research work with our market-leading industrial partners, research on current issues in energy supply and device development, as well as the opportunity for a doctorate.


Job profile:

You will research and develop innovative power electronic converters for decentralized and mobile energy supply systems as part of our national and international research projects. The spectrum of issues dealt with ranges from the scientific fundamentals of converter topologies and control architectures to the design of magnetic components and the development of solutions with the latest semiconductor components (Si, SiC, GaN, ESBT, JFET) through to joint product developments with our industrial partners.

The challenge:

Highly efficient and flexible energy converters are required for the use of decentralized and mobile energy sources. We work together with industrial partners who are active in everything from component development to system technology for end users. The University of Kassel provides the scientific background for basic research. Organizations such as UniKassel-Transfer and deENet e.V. (, as an association of strong regional partners in the field of decentralized energy supply, form a link to industry in application. The Competence Center for Decentralized Electrical Energy Supply Technology is a scientific research center of the University of Kassel and the market-leading industry established in this field.



You can expect an attractive working environment with independent, responsibility-oriented work in a committed team as well as opportunities for further qualification and personal development within the framework of challenging R&D projects and international cooperation. There is the possibility of a doctorate or habilitation.


Requirements profile:

Completed scientific university degree or comparable degree in the field of electrical engineering with above-average success in the areas of power electronics and energy technology. Experience in the areas of power converter development, semiconductor components, measurement and control technology and circuit design is an advantage. Fluency in written and spoken German and English is required.
