Research Positions (Post-Doc) in Cybersecurity and Privacy

The Technische Universität Darmstadt is at the forefront of research in cybersecurity and privacy. Our research team analyzes and improves the state of cybersecurity and privacy in real-world networks and systems. We focus on the Internet, critical infrastructures, business software and industrial control systems. We develop innovative cybersecurity and privacy solutions and work with partners from industry and government agencies. We are involved in international standardization (e.g., IETF). Much of our research is done in collaboration with leading academic and industrial cybersecurity institutions from around the world.

We are seeking highly motivated and qualified candidates who are interested in joining our team and help strengthening our research work. Candidates must have a very good PhD in Computer Science or related field, and must demonstrate practical experience and solid knowledge in cybersecurity. Candidates must be self-motivated and dedicated, independent, and willing to work in an international and excellence-oriented work environment. Our working languages are German and English; if necessary applicants are expected to improve their language skills through intensive language classes. All employees are expected to contribute to our academic teaching program.

Darmstadt is home of the largest cybersecurity research community in Germany. We are a member of several collaborative research centers in Darmstadt: CRISP, DFG SFB CROSSING and DFG GRK TAP. We are working very closely together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT. The cooperation with Fraunhofer provides a unique, direct access to the needs and problems of industry and society.

All positions are initially for a limited period but may be extended. Compensation follows the Tarifvertrag für die Technische Universität Darmstadt (TV-TU), corresponding to the candidate’s qualifications and responsibilities.

The Technische Universität Darmstadt aims at increasing the number of female researchers and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. Severely handicapped will be preferred, given equal qualification.
Applications must include a professional CV, copies of diplomas and certificates, and in particular for post-doc candidates a list of publications, copies of two selected publications and two references.
