‚ÄúDefinition and characterisation of reference point for high-precision time synchronisation‚ÄĚ

MUnique Technology GmbH is a young company on sustainable growth. Our DeepTech company has specialised in the field of optical measurement technology with an innovative length measuring device. The system enables a wide range of applications especially for time synchronisation systems.

Time synchronisation is based on the exact measurement of distances between two locations. This requires reference points with high (mechanical) stability. Initial concepts for the space sector are being researched, created and simulated. A trade-off is used to select the best concept, which is then designed and verified in a breadboard setup.

Tasks of the doctorate:

  • Literature research on general time synchronisation
  • Conceptual design of several synchronisation setups and selection procedures for space application
  • Optics design and simulation
  • Construction of an optical setup for testing and verification (incl. 3D printing)
  • Characterisation of the hardware setup
  • Technical report


  • Master’s degree in physics, physical engineering, photonics or comparable
  • Very high interest in optics and laser technology
  • Knowledge of measurement technology, CAD design and Python
  • English (fluent), German (basic knowledge)

What we offer

  • Innovative environment in an extraodinary deep tech company
  • Interdisciplinary activities
  • Flexitime and flexible working time model, home office
  • Individual development and training opportunities
  • Flat hierarchies and short decision-making processes
  • Participation in the development of the company
  • Mentoring and participation in conferences
  • Possible permanent position afterwards
