Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Insti­tute of Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Chair of Com­pi­ler Con­struc­tion

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 Asso­ciate / PhD Stu­dent

The Insti­tute of Com­puter Engin­eer­ing, Chair of Com­piler Con­struc­tion, in the con­text of the DFG pro­ject TraceSymm (Trace ana­lysis and Sym­metry the­ory for improved applic­a­tion map­ping onto manycores – CA 1602/4-1), offers as soon as pos­sible a pos­i­tion as
Research Asso­ci­ate / PhD Stu­dent (sub­ject to per­sonal qual­i­fic­a­tion employ­ees are remu­ner­ated accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
Research area: Pro­gram­ming Het­ero­gen­eous Manycore Sys­tems
Terms: The pos­i­tion is lim­ited to 31 Decem­ber 2020 (with the option to be exten­ded).
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).

Work­ing field:

At the Chair of Com­pi­ler Con­struc­tion we have the long-term vision of shaping the way future elec­tro­nic sys­tems are to be pro­gram­med. This inclu­des effi­ci­ently pro­gramming emer­ging hete­ro­ge­neous many­core archi­tec­tu­res, where we have a long tra­jec­tory in data­f­low pro­gramming models and asso­cia­ted opti­mi­zing com­pi­lers. In this con­text, we are loo­king for a highly moti­va­ted PhD stu­dent to deve­lop novel mathe­ma­ti­cal abs­trac­tions and methods that make it pos­si­ble to solve lar­ger, more com­plex pro­gramming pro­blems. This com­pi­ler rese­arch will touch upon topics from mathe­ma­tics (e.g., graph theory, trace ana­ly­sis and the study of sym­me­tries), par­al­lel pro­gramming models (e.g., exten­si­ons to OpenMP), and run­time sys­tems. The PhD stu­dent will work clo­sely with rese­ar­chers working on domain-spe­ci­fic lan­gua­ges, opti­mi­zing com­pi­lers and mul­ti­ple lay­ers of the pro­gramming stack, in the con­text of the Excel­lence Clus­ter cfaed (


We aim at attrac­ting the best talent in the respec­tive rese­arch fields and expect the fol­lo­wing: an out­stan­ding uni­ver­sity degree (mas­ter's/ diploma or equi­va­lent) in com­pu­ter sci­ence, mathe­ma­tics, elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring or a rele­vant area; first rese­arch expe­ri­ence, pre­fe­r­a­bly in app­lied mathe­ma­tics (e.g. graph algo­rithms), opti­miza­t­ion tech­ni­ques or com­pi­lers; sound know­ledge in soft­ware deve­lop­ment; an inde­pen­dent, tar­get- and solu­tion-dri­ven work atti­tude; inter- and mul­ti­di­sci­pli­nary thin­king; an inte­gra­tive and coope­ra­tive per­so­na­lity with excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion and social skills; flu­ency in Eng­lish - writ­ten and oral.

What we of­fer:

You will join a team of enthu­si­a­s­tic rese­ar­chers who pur­sue crea­tively their indi­vi­dual rese­arch agenda. The Chair of Com­pi­ler Con­struc­tion is part of the the Clus­ter of Excel­lence “Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den”, which offers ple­nty of resour­ces and struc­tu­res for career deve­lop­ment.
