Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Insti­tute of Sys­tems Archi­tec­ture

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 Pri­vacy and Secu­rity

The posi­tion is to be fil­led at 1st Octo­ber 2020.

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful can­di­date is requi­red to rep­re­sent the area Pri­vacy and Secu­rity in rese­arch and tea­ching. In rese­arch, we expect app­li­cants to show novel and high-impact con­tri­bu­ti­ons in at least one of the fol­lo­wing rese­arch areas: secu­rity of com­plex sys­tems ran­ging from large com­pu­ting infra­st­ruc­tures to small devices; dis­tri­bu­ted secu­rity archi­tec­tures and pro­to­cols; pre­ser­va­tion of pri­vacy in a con­nec­ted world; net­work secu­rity and iden­tity manage­ment; app­lied cryp­to­gra­phy and cryp­to­gra­phic pro­to­cols. Inter­na­tio­nal publi­ca­ti­ons and con­tacts as well as the active par­ti­ci­pa­tion in rese­arch pro­jects in one or several of the above-men­tio­ned areas are of par­ti­cu­lar impor­t­ance. The tasks in tea­ching include lec­tures in Ger­man and Eng­lish lan­guage wit­hin the scope of the dedi­ca­tion of the chair in under­gra­duate and gra­duate stu­dies of Bache­lor, Mas­ter, and Diploma cour­ses at the Faculty of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence as well as at rela­ted facul­ties. Fur­ther­more, we expect the suc­cess­ful can­di­date to cover social, ethic, as well as eco­no­mi­cal aspects of pri­vacy and secu­rity wit­hin the tea­ching activi­ties. The abi­lity and wil­ling­ness to start and con­ti­nue inter­di­sci­pli­nary coope­ra­tion pro­jects wit­hin the diverse tech­ni­cal and sci­en­ti­fic com­mu­nity in Dres­den - espe­ci­ally with insti­tu­ti­ons that are mem­bers of DRES­DEN-con­cept - and other facul­ties wit­hin TU Dres­den (mainly from the Engi­nee­ring Sci­en­ces) is of spe­cial impor­t­ance. Also, excel­lent inter­na­tio­nal publi­ca­ti­ons, inter­na­tio­nal con­tacts in aca­de­mia and indus­try as well as evi­dence of the suc­cess­ful super­vi­sion of PhDs are cru­cial. Finally, expe­ri­ence and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion in self-admi­nis­tra­tion wit­hin the aca­de­mic boards of the Faculty of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence and of TU Dres­den are expec­ted.


We expect very good tea­ching skills as well as the abi­lity and wil­ling­ness to offer cour­ses in Eng­lish lan­guage. Pro­fi­ci­ency of the Ger­man lan­guage is not a pre­re­qui­site for appoint­ment. Howe­ver, we expect the suc­cess­ful can­di­date to acquire lan­guage skills suf­fi­ci­ent to con­duct tea­ching and admi­nis­tra­tive tasks wit­hin two years after appoint­ment.
App­li­cants should exhi­bit expe­ri­ence in acqui­si­tion and manage­ment of third-party-fun­ded pro­jects. A habi­li­ta­tion or equi­va­lent achie­ve­ments are a pre­con­di­tion for an app­li­ca­tion. 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 (SächsHSFG).
