Research Assistant (m/f/x) in the Application Center Smart Energy Systems in the field of charging infrastructure and electromobility

Working Time:
Available from:

The DAI Laboratory of the Technical University Berlin is looking for a research assistant (m/f/x) to join the interdisciplinary group of the application center “Smart Energy Systems”. In this center, the activities and research focus on the new trends and applications of digitization and artificial intelligence to facilitate and overcome the new challenges of the energy transition. The position involves working on the project “EMoT – National Test Center for Electromobility”. The EMoT’s goal project is to establish a central system for monitoring and increasing the quality of charging processes for electric vehicles in order to sustainably improve the user experience when charging. Due to the extended requirements and demands on the future charging process, such as the fully automated initiation and execution via Plug & Charge as well as the complete integration into the energy grid, the complexity will further increase due to the number of systems in the process chain.

The advertised position is a full-time position and is paid according to the TV-L E-13 tariff.

  • Application deadline: 21.08.2023


  • Development of tools for CPO and EMP,
  • Development of communication protocols like ISO 151108, OCPP 2.0,
  • Conduct simulation studies for charging behavior and energy management,
  • Assemble hardware components for a charging station
  • Elaboration of project deliverables and reports.

We offer

  • International team and good networking with industry and research partners
  • Supervision of M.Sc. & B.Sc. theses at the TU Berlin on the project topics.
  • Opportunity to do a Ph.D. at the interface of AI and energy or e-mobility and be an active member of the AC Energy team.
  • Access to cutting-edge infrastructure (GPU/CPU Cluster, Smart Micro-Grid).


  • Successfully completed university studies (Master, Diploma, or equivalent) in (Business) Informatics, Electrical Engineering/Renewable Energy Systems, or comparable fields.
  • Knowledge of concepts, methods, and technologies in the areas of AI and machine learning, IoT, and distributed systems (multi-agent systems, …).
  • Strong programming skills with a focus on the modeling, simulation, and optimization of energy or mobility processes (ideally in Python).
  • Domain knowledge in energy systems or mobility is desirable.
  • Experience in software engineering and agile software development methodologies is an advantage.
  • Previous experience in academic/industrial collaborative projects is an advantage.
  • Excellent knowledge of English and good knowledge of German; willingness to learn the respective missing languages.
