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

(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The pro­ject posi­tion is offe­red as soon as pos­si­ble for an initial period of 15 mon­ths until 30.06.2021. 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.

Work­ing field:

You will be respon­si­ble for sub­tasks in third-party fun­ded rese­arch pro­jects which com­prise ana­ly­sis, model­ling and opti­mi­sa­tion of pro­ces­ses in the air trans­port sys­tem. Your rese­arch will be focu­sed on effi­ci­ent ground ope­ra­ti­ons of air­craft, taking into account delay situa­ti­ons and their com­plex depen­den­cies in the air­port envi­ron­ment and air traf­fic net­work. For this pur­pose, methods of ope­ra­ti­ons rese­arch are to be fur­ther deve­lo­ped, data-dri­ven pro­ce­du­res and machine lear­ning methods are to be adop­ted and trans­fer­red into a simu­la­tive app­li­ca­tion con­text. Rese­arch may involve inno­va­tive air­craft (dro­nes) with their cor­re­spon­din­gly dif­fe­rent ope­ra­ting pro­ces­ses (high auto­ma­tion). Your work will fur­ther include tasks in pro­ject orga­ni­sa­tion, such as repor­ting, pre­pa­ra­tion of pro­ject mee­tings, sup­port in rai­sing rese­arch funds and publi­ca­tion of rese­arch results in front of (inter-)natio­nal experts and in tech­ni­cal/sci­en­ti­fic jour­nals.


uni­ver­sity degree (Mas­ter or Diploma) in trans­port engi­nee­ring, trans­port eco­no­mics, indus­trial engi­nee­ring, com­pu­ter sci­ence, mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring or a simi­lar field with a high affi­nity for pro­cess opti­mi­sa­tion and pro­gramming. Know­ledge in the field of avia­tion, ope­ra­ti­ons rese­arch or data ana­ly­sis should com­ple­ment your pro­file. We expect a high degree of inde­pen­dence, per­so­nal initia­tive and goal-ori­en­ted work in our inter­na­tio­nal team. You have a con­fi­dent deme­a­nour and strong com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills in Eng­lish (and at best also basic Ger­man). Expe­ri­ence in at least one pro­gramming lan­guage (e.g., Java, C#, Python) and/or in working with dif­fe­rent soft­ware tools for pro­cess ana­ly­sis and opti­mi­sa­tion (GAMS, CPLEX, SPSS, MAT­LAB, etc.) is desi­red. Due to your pro­noun­ced inte­rest for sci­en­ti­fic issues in the field of air traf­fic, we offer you the oppor­tu­nity to design solu­ti­ons for future avia­tion sys­tems and the pos­si­bi­lity to test them in an app­li­ca­tion-ori­en­ted envi­ron­ment with the sup­port of our inter­na­tio­nal team.
