Research Assistant (m/f) in the field of tolerance management – tolerance optimization –

The Institute of Engineering Design at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) is one of the leading university institutes in the field of engineering design and product development in Germany. About 40 scientists teach and research in the fields of design methodology, virtual product development, machine elements and mechatronic systems.

In order to strengthen our team at the earliest possible time, we are looking for a Research Assistant (m/f) in the field of tolerance management – tolerance optimization –

The scope of duties covers the following:

The tolerances specified during product development and design have a significant impact on both the product quality and the resulting manufacturing costs. In order to support the specification of tol-erances, a procedure for the tolerance optimization of under- and over-constrained assemblies with several functional key characteristics is to be developed within the framework of a publicly funded research project. We are looking for an engineer who is committed to promoting the above-mentioned topic and who is actively involved in the specialist group. The opportunity for a doctorate is given.
