Working field:

  • research and development in designing, programming and adapting existing embedded operating systems to support reconfigurable computing architectures, such as reconfigurable processors and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs); The operating system shall control the hardware adaptations of the reconfigurable computer architecture by means of enabling and disabling blocks, dynamic reconfiguration, and dynamic adjustment of the clock rate and voltage supply in order to achieve application requirements such as real-time, energy-efficiency, reliability and/or security.
  • evaluation with application scenarios from robotics, e.g. control algorithms, machine learning
  • contributing, administrating and reporting in (inter-)national research and development projects;
  • presenting results at international conferences;
  • close cooperation with academic and industrial cooperation partners.


  • university degree (M.Sc., Diploma) in either computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering or any related natural science;
  • very good programming skills in C, C++;
  • very good command of English (written and spoken) and German (optional);
  • high self-motivation, commitment, and flexibility as well as the ability to work in and contribute to an international team.
  • experience in one or more of the following areas is desired: operating systems, embedded systems, field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), computer architecture (e.g. RISC-V), hardware description languages (e.g. VHDL or Verilog), robotics (e.g. Robot Operating System (ROS).

What we offer:

We offer you an excellent working environment in an international team with many career development possibilities.
