For large development and production projects within the Electronic division, we are currently looking for a System Engineer (m/f/d).

You will be a member of the project group within the Electronics division and report directly to the individual project leads and / or to the group leader. In the framework of large national and international collaborations you will be organizing projects in parts or as a whole, monitoring the MPIfR deliverables, and secure the quality and as well as the timely implementation.

  • excellent communication skills in English (required) and German (preferable) in written, verbal and presentational forms
  • remarkable conflict resolution, analytical, and decision-making skills are vital to the position equally
