The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Assi­stant / PhD stu­dent / Post­doc (m/f/d)

At the Insti­tute of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Tech­no­logy, the Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship of Hap­tic Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Sys­tems offers for the Clus­ter of Excel­lence “Centre for Tac­tile Inter­net with Human-in-the-Loop“ (CeTI) a posi­tion as

Rese­arch Assi­stant / PhD stu­dent / Post­doc (m/f/d)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble, limi­ted for 36 mon­ths, max. Decem­ber 31, 2025. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG). The posi­tion offers the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD / habi­li­ta­tion the­sis). Balan­cing family and career is an important issue. The posi­tion is gene­rally sui­ta­ble for can­di­da­tes see­king part-time employ­ment. Please indi­cate your request in your app­li­ca­tion.

Working field:

In the field of for­mal methods you rea­lize rese­arch pro­jects on your own initia­tive in a team and demons­trate them in prac­ti­cal app­li­ca­ti­ons of com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works. You will be invol­ved in the orga­ni­za­tion and imple­men­ta­tion of pro­jects in the Clus­ter of Excel­lence, write sci­en­ti­fic publi­ca­ti­ons and pre­sent rese­arch results at con­fe­ren­ces.

Topics: The inter­di­sci­pli­nary Clus­ter of Excel­lence CeTI deve­lops foun­da­ti­ons for the next genera­tion of the Inter­net: almost in real time, humans inter­act with cyber-phy­si­cal sys­tems (CPS) via intel­li­gent com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works. These foun­da­ti­ons address cur­rent chal­len­ges of com­pu­ter sci­ence and society, such as auto­no­mous dri­ving, tele­ope­ra­tion, or robo­tics. Due to the mul­ti­tude of con­fi­gu­ra­tion opti­ons in modern com­pu­ter sys­tems, requi­re­ments for relia­bi­lity and per­for­mance in com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works can­not always be gua­ran­teed. The goal of this posi­tion is, among others, to deve­lop tech­ni­ques of cau­sal ana­ly­sis and for­mal veri­fi­ca­tion to iden­tify con­fi­gu­ra­tion rea­sons for faults, their explana­tion, and adap­tation of con­fi­gu­ra­ti­ons to improve the per­for­mance of com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works. The effec­tiveness of the tech­ni­ques shall be demons­tra­ted in prac­tice. Other inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch topics wit­hin the clus­ter may be addres­sed in con­sul­ta­tion.


very good uni­ver­sity and, if app­li­ca­ble, PhD degree in com­pu­ter sci­ence, elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring, or mathe­ma­tics. Strong back­ground in at least one area rela­ted to the rese­arch topic, e.g., for­mal methods, cau­sal rea­so­ning, machine lear­ning, theo­re­ti­cal com­pu­ter sci­ence, pro­gramm­a­ble net­works, and net­work tech­no­logy. Fur­ther­more, a struc­tu­red way of working, the abi­lity to advance pro­jects inde­pendently and to com­mu­ni­cate with all par­ties invol­ved, as well as excel­lent writ­ten and oral com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills in Eng­lish are requi­red.
