Full-time (38.5 hours/week), at Pro2Future GmbH in Graz, starting as soon as possible.


Project context
The goal of this project is to increase the resource efficiency (especially the resource energy) of producing companies, thus reducing resource consumption / energy consumption / CO2-footprint. Starting with the development and implementation of suitable measuring instruments and cognitive evaluation & control units, selected examples (plants, production lines and production sites) will be used to demonstrate how an increase in resource efficiency and thus added value can be created through cognitive energy management systems. The main scientific partners in this project are the Graz University of Technology and the Johannes Kepler University Linz.

Job profile
The successful candidate has completed a relevant academic curriculum and enjoys scientific work. She/He also likes to collaborate within project frames, both in terms of content and organization, and always strives to continuously optimize the own performance. Through entrepreneurial thinking, she/he always knows about the added value of this project and creates the basis for future project acquisition.

The successful candidate will work within an interdisciplinary project team consisting of experts including the scientific partners. The candidate plays a major role in shaping and executing the projects’ research agenda. The research work will also involve collaboration and knowledge exchange with Pro²Future partners beyond the project frame, with several allied national and international research groups as well as participating in the international research community.
