Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Tech­no­logy, Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship in Quan­tum Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Excel­lent Clus­ter Centre for Tac­tile Inter­net with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI)

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 Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Tech­no­logy, the Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship in Quan­tum Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, the Excel­lent Clus­ter Centre for Tac­tile Inter­net with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI) offers a pro­ject posi­tion as
Rese­arch Asso­ciate / Post­doc (m/f/x)
(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­tion is initi­ally limi­ted until Decem­ber 31, 2025. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz – WissZeitVG).

Working field:

CeTI’s cen­tral vision is to enable humans to inter­act in quasi real-time with cyber-phy­si­cal sys­tems (CPS) in the real or vir­tual world over intel­li­gent wide-area com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works. Such advan­ces go far bey­ond the cur­rent state-of-the-art approa­ches in com­pu­ter and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces: intel­li­gent com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works and adap­tive CPS for quasi real-time co-ope­ra­ti­ons with humans require online mutual lear­ning mecha­nisms, which are cru­cial chal­len­ges. To tackle these chal­len­ges, CeTI will con­duct uni­que inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch and will address major open rese­arch topics in key areas of the com­ple­xity of human con­trol in the human–machine loop, sen­sor and actua­tor tech­no­lo­gies, soft­ware and hard­ware designs, and the com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works as the basis for several novel use cases grou­ped in medi­cine, indus­try, and the Inter­net of Skills.
For the rea­li­sa­tion of ultra-reli­able low-latency com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons requi­red by the Tac­tile Inter­net, quan­tum tech­no­lo­gies have been pro­ven to be necessary to go bey­ond the intrin­sic limi­ta­ti­ons of clas­si­cal tech­no­lo­gies.

Descrip­tion: The focus is on the inte­gra­tion of quan­tum resour­ces/tech­no­lo­gies in the Tac­tile Inter­net to col­lapse and avoid some intrin­sic trade-offs of clas­si­cal tech­no­lo­gies. Espe­ci­ally, the work is on achie­ving low-latency, and high resi­li­ence and relia­bi­lity. This should start from the prac­ti­cal/infra­st­ruc­tu­ral aspects for the quan­tum tech­no­lo­gies to be inte­gra­ted in the archi­tec­ture of the Tac­tile Inter­net. This can include app­li­ca­ti­ons for secu­rity, enco­ding of human sen­so­rial data (audio­vi­sual and hap­tics) and dis­tri­bu­tion of rand­om­ness. Cur­rent quan­tum tech­no­lo­gies can­not satisfy data rates, latency, and sustai­na­bi­lity. This means that care­ful design is necessary for under­stan­ding the ways to make quan­tum resour­ces seam­lessly app­li­ca­ble in the Tac­tile Inter­net.


uni­ver­sity and PhD degree in phy­sics, mathe­ma­tics, or equi­va­lent; strong pro­gramming skills are highly recom­men­ded. Know­ledge of quan­tum mecha­nics and focus on expe­ri­men­tal phy­sics is also an important metric. Can­di­da­tes should be pro­fi­ci­ent in Eng­lish and have good oral and writ­ten com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.
