TU Ber­lin - Vir­tual Product Cre­ation Divi­sion

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.

Stu­dent Assist­ant: Editor/Coordin­ator Eng­lish teach­ing mater­i­als

Work­ing field:

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.

  • 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)
  • Basic Ger­man
  • Trans­la­tion skills
  • Advanced skills with office tools
  • Tech­nical engin­eer­ing back­ground know­ledge (desir­able)
  • Graphic design skills (desire­able)

What we of­fer:

  • Pro­fes­sional work­ing envir­on­ment
  • Inter­na­tional and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team
  • Insights in a trend­set­ting engin­eer­ing field
