Work in Concentrated Solar Research and Development

February 12, 2024

February 2024

(All offers in first week)


The offered position will be mainly concerned with the management of the Central Hub but also is expected to give managerial & technical support in the growing number of R&D projects where EU-SOLARIS ERIC is participating, mainly at European level.

-Master’s degree in a STEM discipline, economy or business administration.
-Working experience of at least one year in the management of engineering or scientific projects.
-This is a position to work in an international environment, so you must demonstrate a very good command of English. We request a Cambridge’s B2 or equivalent level. Also, as the post is located in Spain, fluency in Spanish is very desirable.
-You have to be a national of either an EU country or a country associated to the Horizon Europe Programme.

Type of employment

Would you like to contribute to a sustainable future by advancing solar-based fuel production? Then you are exactly right with us!
The vision of the DLR Institute for Future Fuels is to develop technological solutions that enable the cost-effective production of fuels, hydrogen, or even commodities in the sunbelt of the earth on an industrial scale. At the institute, we use our unique infrastructure in which concentrated solar energy covers the heat demand of high-temperature processes.
For production to be as sustainable as possible, the recyclability of the components of a production plant, e.g. a concentrating solar thermal power plant, must be considered from the very beginning. The use of recycled materials and the recovery of parts and components after their use phase are critical aspects towards a circular economy. Within your work you will evaluate the recycling potential of solar plants for the production of future fuels. In addition, you will assess the use of critical raw materials and the potential reduction of greenhouse gas emissions due to the implementation of of recycling routes.
