Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Trans­re­gio­nal Col­la­bo­ra­tive Rese­arch Centre 248 „Foun­da­ti­ons of Per­spi­cuous Soft­ware Sys­tems”

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 / Post­doc

(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The posi­tion is star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­tion is fixed-term to 31st of Decem­ber 2022. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG). The posi­tion aims at obtai­ning fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD or habi­li­ta­tion the­sis). Balan­cing family and career is an important issue. The post is basi­cally sui­ta­ble for can­di­da­tes see­king part-time employ­ment. A part-time employ­ment with 50% of the full time wee­kly hours is pos­si­ble.
The Com­pu­ter Sci­ence CRC 248 lays the sci­en­ti­fic foun­da­ti­ons for the cyber-phy­si­cal sys­tems of the future, enab­ling them to exp­lain their func­tio­n­a­lity and beha­viour (so-cal­led Per­spi­cuous Sys­tems). We are rese­ar­ching a foun­da­tio­nal and app­li­ca­ble theory of expli­ca­ti­ons for all facets of sys­tem beha­viour, as well as visual and ver­bal explana­tion methods for diverse user groups.

As a mem­ber of the Inter­ac­tive Media Lab Dres­den you will be part of a suc­cess­ful team of expe­ri­en­ced rese­ar­chers of diverse back­grounds. You will work in the vibrant sci­en­ti­fic envi­ron­ment of the CRC/TR 248 and TU Dres­den, one of the lea­ding Ger­man rese­arch uni­ver­si­ties. Dres­den is a city highly worth living in with a rich cul­tu­ral life and beau­ti­ful nature.

Work­ing field:

As a mem­ber of the pro­ject teams in pro­jects E1, E4, and C4 of the Col­la­bo­ra­tive Rese­arch Cen­ter, you will be con­duc­ting rese­arch in the area of inter­ac­tive visua­li­za­tion of models, infor­ma­tion flows, and data of cyber-phy­si­cal sys­tems, for example as col­la­bo­ra­tively used, scala­ble graph visua­li­za­ti­ons or immer­sive aug­men­ted rea­lity data visua­li­za­ti­ons. The posi­tion is focus­sed on foun­da­tio­nal rese­arch. Publi­ca­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion of rese­arch results at inter­na­tio­nal venues is an important part of the work.


We are loo­king for moti­va­ted and talen­ted staff mem­bers with a very good uni­ver­sity degree (M.Sc. or equi­va­lent), and if app­li­ca­ble a PhD, in com­pu­ter sci­ence or a rela­ted area and spe­ci­fic back­ground know­ledge or prior expe­ri­ence in inter­ac­tive infor­ma­tion visua­li­za­tion and/or novel human-com­pu­ter inter­ac­tion or inter­ac­tive visual com­pu­ting. Post­docs should have made signi­fi­cant rese­arch con­tri­bu­ti­ons to one of the above areas. Can­di­da­tes should be inde­pen­dent in orga­ni­sing their work, keen on working with teams of experts across pro­jects, and flu­ent in Eng­lish (oral and writ­ten).
