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

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. lt deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity and trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion. For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Post­doc (m/f/x)

At the Fac­ulty of Com­puter Sci­ence, Insti­tute of Com­puter Engin­eer­ing, the Chair of Com­piler Con­struc­tion offers a pro­ject-pos­i­tion in a col­lab­or­at­ive pro­ject for novel pro­gram­ming meth­od­o­lo­gies for effi­cient and safe exe­cu­tion of safety-cri­ti­cial soft­ware as
Research Asso­ci­ate / Postdoc (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­sonal qual­i­fic­a­tion employ­ees are remu­ner­ated accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
start­ing on August 1, 2023.

Research areas: Pro­gram­ming lan­guages, source-to-source com­pil­a­tion, code optim­iz­a­tion, emer­ging com­put­ing sys­tems

Terms: The pos­i­tion is lim­ited to July 31, 2026 (with the option to be exten­ded). The period of employ­ment is gov­erned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Research Con­tracts Act (Wis­senschaft­szeitver­trags­ge­setz – Wis­sZeitVG).

Working field:

At the Chair of Com­pi­ler Con­struc­tion we have the long-term vision of sha­ping how future elec­tro­nic sys­tems are pro­gram­med. This inclu­des defi­ning novel pro­gramming methods through domain-spe­ci­fic abs­trac­tions and asso­cia­ted com­pi­ler infra­st­ruc­tures to enable opti­mi­zing soft­ware for hete­ro­ge­ne­ous com­pu­ting sys­tems in the embed­ded and high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting domains. In this con­text, we are loo­king for a highly moti­va­ted rese­ar­cher to work on a col­la­bo­ra­tive pro­ject bet­ween Ger­many and France that seeks to define metho­do­lo­gies for safe and effi­ci­ent exe­cu­tion of safety-cri­ti­cal soft­ware. The pro­ject com­bi­nes for­mal methods and bench­mar­king to cap­ture the timing beha­vior of app­li­ca­ti­ons and defi­nes rules and trans­for­ma­ti­ons to guide the app­li­ca­tion soft­ware syn­the­sis for a more pre­dic­ta­ble timing beha­vior on state-of-the-art off-the-shelf hete­ro­ge­ne­ous mul­ti­cores. The can­di­date will inter­act with experts in for­mal ana­ly­sis, cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of safety-cri­ti­cal soft­ware in the aero­space and auto­mo­tive domains, and inter­fe­rence ana­ly­sis in modern hard­ware. We are loo­king for a can­di­date with exper­tise in sys­tem-level opti­mi­za­tion metho­do­lo­gies, high-level com­pi­la­tion, and with a strong inter­di­sci­pli­nary atti­tude towards rese­arch. Know­ledge of strea­ming and data­f­low pro­gramming models as well as MLIR-based com­pi­la­tion is extre­mely bene­fi­cial. The selec­ted can­di­date will work with state-of-the-art com­pi­la­tion frame­works and with sys­tem simu­la­tors for hete­ro­ge­ne­ous sys­tems.


We aim at attrac­ting the best talent in the respec­tive rese­arch fields and expect the fol­lo­wing:
Basic Requi­re­ments:
  • an out­stan­ding uni­ver­sity degree (mas­ter / diploma), if app­li­ca­ble a PhD degree (or equi­va­lent) in com­pu­ter sci­ence, mathe­ma­tics, elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring or a rele­vant area;
  • an inde­pen­dent, tar­get- and solu­tion-dri­ven work atti­tude;
  • an inte­gra­tive and coope­ra­tive per­so­na­lity with excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion and social skills;
