“Machine learning supported optimisation of Czochralski crystal growth”

For a Czochralski growth of single crystals for the next generation of devices in high power electronics, optoelectronics, sensing systems and photovoltaics, furnace design and process parameters must be optimized. Common approaches based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations require tremendous time efforts without generalization and learning ability. As a member of our simulation team you will contribute to the Czochralski process development and optimization. Your task will be to use various machine learning methods to develop a digital twin of this process and finally to optimize it.


  • MSc or equivalent degree in physical/chemical/engineering sciences
  • profound modelling background in at least one of the fields: machine learning, heat transport, CFD, phase change
  • proven experience in numerical modeling using CFD software
  • Programming (e.g. C++, Python, Matlab) skills are an advantage.
  • Profound English language skills

What we offer

  • Possibility to contribute to exciting applied science and specialize in a high-tech sector using machine learning methods
  • Fixed term contract for 3 years with payment according to TVöD (75%)
