Soft­ware has become a fun­da­mental ena­bler for new fea­tures, func­tion­al­it­ies, sys­tems, ser­vices and pro­cesses in almost all areas of eco­nomic, tech­nical, sci­entific, social and cul­tural life. Our soci­ety is heav­ily depend­ent on soft­ware tech­no­lo­gies – suc­cess and com­pet­it­ive­ness in the global world are impossible without reli­able, effi­cient and trust­worthy soft­ware-based sys­tems. By con­cen­trat­ing on a hol­istic approach towards the devel­op­ment and oper­a­tion & main­ten­ance of soft­ware-based sys­tems, my research is aimed at design­ing and build­ing improved sys­tem engin­eer­ing tech­no­lo­gies for the bene­fit of sys­tem reli­ab­il­ity and trust­wor­thi­ness. By con­sid­er­ing soft­ware in its inter­play with its envir­on­ment (hard­ware, sensors, actu­at­ors, power, etc.), soft­ware-based sys­tems adher­ing to pre­de­ter­mined levels of secur­ity, safety, per­form­ance, and alike can be effi­ciently con­struc­ted and evolved. This involves con­struct­ive and ana­lytic approaches to sys­tem engin­eer­ing. Engin­eer­ing however should not focus on sys­tem design, devel­op­ment, and veri­fic­a­tion & val­id­a­tion only, but should spawn the whole sys­tem life­cycle incl. sys­tem oper­a­tion, main­ten­ance and evol­u­tion.

Work­ing field:

  • inde­pend­ent research in one of the areas described above
  • teach­ing and super­vising of stu­dents


  • suc­cess­fully com­pleetd uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in com­puter sci­ence, elec­trical engin­eer­ing, applied math­em­at­ics, or sim­ilar, out­stand­ing res­ults desired
  • know­ledge in sev­eral of fol­low­ing areas:

o soft­ware and sys­tems engin­eer­ing
o mod­el­ling and spe­cific­a­tion
o veri­fic­a­tion and val­id­a­tion
o test­ing and cer­ti­fic­a­tion.

  • very good pro­gram­ming skills (C/C++, Java, XML, Web and GUI tech­no­lo­gies, tools and plat­forms)
  • interest in chal­len­ging sci­entific prob­lems and the motiv­a­tion for inde­pend­ent and goal-ori­ented research
  • good level of writ­ten and spoken Eng­lish; very good level of writ­ten and spoken Ger­man

How to ap­ply:

Please send your applic­a­tion with the ref­er­ence num­ber and the usual doc­u­ments (cover let­ter, an aca­demic cur­riculum vitae, a sample of writ­ten work and the names of two ref­er­ences) quot­ing "PhD Pos­i­tion Applic­a­tion" prefer­ably by e-mail to or in writ­ing to Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin - Der Präsid­ent - Fak­ultät IV, Insti­tut für Telekom­munika­tionssysteme, FG Qual­ity Engin­eer­ing of Open Dis­trib­uted Sys­tems, Frau Prof. Dr. Ina Schiefer­decker, Sekr. HFT 2, Ein­steinufer 25, 10587 Ber­lin.

To ensure equal oppor­tun­it­ies between women and men, applic­a­tions by women with the required qual­i­fic­a­tions are expli­citly desired. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored. The TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to the goals of equal oppor­tun­it­ies.

Please send cop­ies only. Ori­ginal doc­u­ments will not be returned.

deadline for application: 08.07.2019
