Scientist (m/f/d) in Computer Science for "Digital Twins"

Reference No.: BE 2021/12

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB) operates the synchrotron radiation facility BESSY II as well as the Metrology Light Source (MLS) in Berlin-Adlershof for an international user community. The Institute for Accelerator Physics and the Department Accelerator Operation operate and drive the development of these user facilities. More than hundred technicians, engineers and physicists work in a creative environment to guarantee reliable and highest quality user operation of up to 5000h per year and to advance the capabilities of the accelerators to serve the rising demands of our users. Furthermore, HZB is preparing a conceptual design study to propose upgrades to BESSY II and MLS:

At the HZB, we boost the advancement of existing accelerators as well as the planning of future accelerators by developing digital twins. Comparable upgrades that have been carried out show that digital twins are essential for the preparation of the control system as well as for the commissioning of fourth-generation light sources.
The digital twins to be developed at HZB will enable new commissioning tools, the investigation of effects observed in the machine and the training of operators.
