Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Insti­tute of Soft­ware and Mul­ti­me­dia Tech­no­logy

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.

Chair (W3) of
Soft­ware Engi­nee­ring for Pro­duct Vir­tua­liza­t­ion
com­bi­ned with the posi­tion of the
Direc­tor of the DLR Insti­tute of Soft­ware Methods for Pro­duct Vir­tua­liza­t­ion

The Faculty of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Insti­tute of Soft­ware and Mul­ti­me­dia Tech­no­logy and the Ger­man Aero­s­pace Cen­ter (DLR) are see­king to fill at the ear­liest pos­si­ble date the posi­tion of a
Chair (W3) of Soft­ware Engi­nee­ring for Pro­duct Vir­tua­liza­t­ion
com­bi­ned with the posi­tion of the
Direc­tor of the DLR Insti­tute of Soft­ware Methods for Pro­duct Vir­tua­liza­t­ion
in a joint appoint­ment pro­ce­dure. The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will be appoin­ted pro­fes­sor at TU Dres­den and will be gran­ted leave of absence for the pur­pose of hea­ding the DLR Insti­tute in Dres­den.

Work­ing field:

The future hol­der of this posi­tion is expec­ted to ful­fill teaching duties of 2 SWS (weekly lec­tu­ring hours per semes­ter) in the study pro­grams of the Faculty of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, in par­ti­cu­lar, in the inter­na­tio­nal mas­ter pro­gram „Com­pu­ta­tio­nal Mode­ling and Simu­la­tion“.The skills for con­duc­ting lec­tu­res in the Eng­lish lan­guage are­re­qui­red. The duties include par­ti­ci­pa­tion in aca­de­mic sel­fad­mi­nis­tra­tion.
The focus of rese­arch of the DLR Insti­tute is stra­te­gic rese­arch and deve­lop­ment of soft­ware plat­forms as a basis for the com­pe­tence in vir­tual sys­tem engi­nee­ring of the Ger­man aero­s­pace rese­arch. The insti­tute will per­form basic rese­arch as well as app­lied rese­arch mainly for aero­s­pace, but also sup­port the DLR insti­tu­tes focu­sing on aero­s­pace, trans­port, and energy. At the same time, a close rese­arch coope­ra­tion with TU Dres­den will be pur­sued.


This posi­tion requi­res a per­son with a sound know­ledge of metho­do­lo­gi­cal foun­da­ti­ons as well as spe­ci­fic app­li­ca­tion areas in soft­ware engi­nee­ring and mode­ling of the life cycle of vir­tual pro­ducts, espe­cially with respect to data-inten­sive sys­tems on mas­si­vely par­al­lel and hete­ro­ge­neous HPC archi­tec­tu­res. App­li­cants should have an excel­lent record of inter­na­tio­nally renow­ned aca­de­mic achie­ve­ments in – pre­fe­r­a­bly – several of the fol­lo­wing focus areas:
  • Foun­da­ti­ons and app­li­ca­tion of the use of high-fide­lity simu­la­tion methods in all pha­ses of a pro­duc­tion cycle – in par­ti­cu­lar in the app­li­ca­tion area of aero­s­pace.
  • Soft­ware and sys­tems engi­nee­ring for design, test, and ope­ra­tion of vir­tual pro­ducts using methods for vir­tual and incre­men­tal cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.
  • Soft­ware and sys­tems engi­nee­ring for high-sca­ling multi-domain simu­la­tion frame­works, simu­la­tion lan­gua­ges, and work­flow deve­lop­ment envi­ron­ments for vir­tual pro­ducts.
  • Inno­va­tive pro­gramming con­cepts like domain-spe­ci­fic lan­gua­ges or equa­tion-based simu­la­tion lan­gua­ges, com­po­nent models, and model-dri­ven soft­ware deve­lop­ment.
  • Data extrac­tion and ana­ly­sis of design and run­time data of vir­tual pro­ducts.
  • Resi­li­ent and secure soft­ware infra­struc­tu­res, espe­cially for vir­tual pro­ducts.

Excel­lent inter­na­tio­nal publi­ca­ti­ons, inter­na­tio­nal coope­ra­tion pro­jects and col­la­bo­ra­tion with indus­try are of par­ti­cu­lar import­ance. Peren­nial expe­ri­ence in hea­ding large rese­arch groups or insti­tu­ti­ons, com­pe­ten­cies in suc­cess­ful app­li­ca­tion for third-party funds, expe­ri­ence in deve­lo­ping regio­nal, natio­nal, and inter­na­tio­nal inter­di­sci­pli­nary coope­ra­tion pro­jects as well as hea­ding and con­duc­ting inter­di­sci­pli­nary pro­jects and working groups are necessary pre­re­qui­si­tes. Can­di­da­tes are expec­ted to have excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion, moti­va­tion and team skills. App­li­cants must ful­fil the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (Hig­her Edu­ca­tion Act of the Free State of Sax­ony – SächsHSFG). A Habi­li­ta­tion or equi­va­lent qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons are a pre­re­qui­site.
