Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Agrar­tech­nik und Bio­öko­no­mie e.V. (ATB)

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Agri­cul­tural Engin­eer­ing and Bioeconomy is a pion­eer and a driver of bioeconomy research. We cre­ate the sci­entific found­a­tion to trans­form agri­cul­tural, food, indus­trial and energy sys­tems into a com­pre­hens­ive bio-based cir­cu­lar eco­nomy. We develop and integ­rate tech­niques, pro­cesses and man­age­ment strategies, effect­ively con­ver­ging tech­no­lo­gies to intel­li­gently cross­link highly diverse bioeco­nomic pro­duc­tion sys­tems and to con­trol them in a know­ledge-based, adapt­ive and largely auto­mated man­ner. We con­duct research in dia­logue with soci­ety - know­ledge-motiv­ated and applic­a­tion-inspired.

Stu­dent Assist­ant (m/f/d)

To sup­port our work in the frame­work of air flow pat­tern ana­lysis, the work­ing group “Barn cli­mate and emis­sion mod­el­ling“

Working field:

In the Engin­eer­ing for Live­stock Man­age­ment com­pet­ence area, we com­bine veter­in­ary research on stress para­met­ers and germ con­tam­in­a­tion with envir­on­mental research on emis­sions and flow pro­cesses in and around animal hus­bandry facil­it­ies.
To sup­port our work in the frame­work of air flow pat­tern ana­lysis, the work­ing group “Barn cli­mate and emis­sion mod­el­ling“ is look­ing for a
Stu­dent Assist­ant (m/f/d)
The work­ing group devel­ops, adapts and val­id­ates empir­ical and mech­an­istic mod­els for describ­ing and pre­dict­ing tem­per­at­ure dis­tri­bu­tion and air qual­ity in nat­ur­ally vent­il­ated barns and pol­lut­ant trans­port pro­cesses in con­nec­tion with live­stock farm­ing. The mod­els are fur­ther used to eval­u­ate options for adapt­ing barn sys­tems to cli­mate change and redu­cing emis­sions.
Sim­u­lated flow and gas con­cen­tra­tion pat­terns under dif­fer­ent bound­ary con­di­tions shall be fur­ther ana­lysed using quant­it­at­ive meas­ures of sim­il­ar­ity to enhance the basic under­stand­ing of the influ­ence of dif­fer­ent bound­ary con­di­tions on the pat­tern form­a­tion.

Your respons­ib­il­it­ies
  • Ana­lysis of flow pat­terns with dif­fer­ent spa­tial veri­fic­a­tion tech­niques
  • Cluster ana­lysis of the sim­u­lated tracer dis­tri­bu­tion
  • Lit­er­at­ure review
  • Sup­port in pre­par­a­tion of pub­lic­a­tions and present­a­tions
  • Sup­port of val­id­a­tion meas­ure­ments (wind tun­nel and on-farm)


  • Very good know­ledge in data sci­ence / stat­ist­ics
  • Exper­i­ence in com­puter vis­ion, spa­tial veri­fic­a­tion and cluster ana­lysis desir­able
  • Very good pro­gram­ming skills (e.g., R or Python)
  • Good know­ledge of fluid dynam­ics desir­able
  • Inde­pend­ent work, per­sonal com­mit­ment, reli­ab­il­ity, enjoy­ment of basic sci­ence, solu­tion-ori­ented action, abil­ity to work in a team and will­ing­ness to cooper­ate

What we offer:

  • Attract­ive, inter­dis­cip­lin­ary work­ing envir­on­ment and very good con­di­tions for devel­op­ing your sci­entific career and net­work
  • The best pre­requis­ites for inde­pend­ent, inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research in an ambi­tious team and with mod­ern and excel­lent infra­struc­ture
  • Access to national and inter­na­tional net­works for your sci­entific devel­op­ment
  • Fam­ily-friendly work­ing con­di­tions that pro­mote the com­pat­ib­il­ity of work and fam­ily life
  • Extens­ive remote work oppor­tun­it­ies
  • Com­pany-owned elec­tric bicycles for busi­ness trips
  • Par­ti­cip­a­tion on the VBB com­pany ticket

This pos­i­tion con­sist of up to 40 hours per month and is lim­ited until Decem­ber 31st, 2022. The salary is based on your qual­i­fic­a­tion and pro­fes­sional exper­i­ence 10,63 € / hour or 12,37 € / hour with Bach­elor degree.
