Your mission :
The EPFL Space Center (eSpace) is starting a new research initiative on Sustainable Space Logistics. We aim to address the next big challenges in space engineering, namely how to manufacture, transport, store, deliver and remove materials, goods, structures and humans in space. Numerous innovations in the space segment are still needed to revolutionize these space operations. As such, space logistics is a new field of its own and although many concepts can be inherited from current logistics practice, it requires the creation of a new set of competencies. Moreover, as space is a unique and fragile resource, it is key to develop this new ecosystem with a long-term and sustainable vision.
Your mission will be to conduct and perform state-of-the-art research in the domain of sustainable space logistics. You will develop your research in cooperation with laboratories at EPFL and elsewhere in Switzerland. You will be able to develop your own projects and participate in projects of the EPFL Space Center (e.g. CleanSpace One).
Main duties and responsibilities include :
Perform research in the field of sustainable space logistics
Your profile :
Candidates should have a PhD in the domain of research related to sustainable space logistics (e.g. space robotics,
additive manufacturing, advanced control, space communication…). Experience in industry or within a space agency is also welcome.
You should consider yourself as a good candidate if you tick many of the points below:
We offer :
