Digital techniques, processes and methods are now an essential part of the entire production technology network from product planning through to product maintenance and overhaul. They enable targeted planning and control of product development cycles, product quality and associated costs. At the Virtual Product Creation division of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology IPK we are engaged in realizing the vision of a completely digitalized product creation process. Our aim is to design methods and tools so that later phases – from actual production and customer use to the range of associated services – can be factored in and planned for at a very early stage of the product lifecycle.
Are a capable editor and comfortable in both English and German? Do you enjoy coordinating a diverse team and supporting them in both research and editorial capacities? Then you may be the right fit at the Fraunhofer!
We are looking for a student researcher to support a project aimed at producing English language teaching materials covering Industry 4.0 and other modern production techniques.
You will be working as the convergence point between authors, publishers and contributors. Both a keen eye for editorial tasks as well as a quick mind for translation are required for the tasks you will find here.
The position includes the following tasks:
Coordination between Author teams both internally & externally
Editing English language material on a number of engineering subjects
Supporting author teams through research and editing
Please note: Only applicants that are currently enrolled in some university course can be considered. Furthermore, we are looking for someone who is responsible, self-reliant, good at organizing, and has some experiences in proof-reading and translation. Having been abroad for a year might not meet our minimum requirement.
This is what you should bring to the table:
Excellent written and spoken English (native preferred)
