To strengthen the CeTI team various new positions are in preparation. Currently, the positions listed below are available; however, if you think CeTI could be the right place for your research activities feel free to frequently check the open positions on this page, or contact us directly.

Faculty of Psychology

The Faculty of Psychology is offering positions for CeTI researchers at different chairs of the Technical University Dresden.
See the list of open positions below.

Chair of Psychology of Learning and Instruction

Topic: Skill acquisition and learning with CeTI technologies (Research rooms TP1 and U3)

Tasks: One of CeTI’s research aims is to augment human perception and action with new real-time sensor/actuator technologies in order to promote skill acquisition. U3 will build demonstrators aimed at promoting sensory-motor skill acquisition action with new real-time sensor/actuator technologies. Your tasks will be to conduct (a) multisensory behavioural experiments together with the TP1 team, as well as (b) design-based research in U3 in order to investigate the benefits and constraints of using sensor/actuator and augmented reality technologies for promoting sensory-motor skill acquisition.

Requirements: We are looking for a candidate with a PhD degree in psychology; sports and exercise sciences; human factor/medical engineering, or related fields who has expertise in psychophysical research of technology-enhanced sensory-motor learning and control, as well as experiences in motion capture technologies. Interests and prior experiences in cognitive neuroscience methods and/or human technology interactions would be a plus. Team spirit and collaboration will be essential for the project.

Information: The Job-ID is CeTI-position_Narciss_1. More information can be found here.

Chair of Lifespan Developmental Neuroscience

Topic: Research at CeTI aims at achieving significant breakthroughs for enhancing collaborations between humans and machines in real, virtual and remote environments.

Tasks: The successful applicant is expected to independently perform the following:
• develop and conduct empirical research on human multisensory perception and action with an emphasis on human-machine interactions;
• establish a research group, supervise PhD fellows and Master students;
• organize the shared usages of lab equipments in CeTI’s Human-in-the-Loop Lab;
• publish research articles in high-ranking research journals;
• actively collaborate with other researchers in CeTI
• participate in grant applications and develop new research programs.

Requirements: Of particular interest for us are excellent postdocs with university and doctoral degree from the fields of psychology, cognitive science, or cognitive neuroscience whose research aims at understanding the dynamics of human goal-directed multisensory perception and action in the context of human–machine interactions. Candidates with expertise in combining motion capture with virtual or augmented reality systems as well as computational modelling are particularly encouraged to apply. The primary criteria for appointment will be a strong record of innovative research and academic performance, an original and promising vision for future work program in the centre, as well as high potential for establishing an independent research group with fruitful interdisciplinary collaborations.

Information: The Job-ID is CeTI-JRGL Human Perception and Action. More information can be found here.

Participating Institutions

The following participating institutions offering open positions within CeTI.

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP

Topic: The PhD thesis is part of the FEP contribution to the excellence cluster Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI)” of the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD). This offers a unique opportunity to participate in a highly interdisciplinary and scientifically excellent environment.

Tasks: As part of your dissertation, you will develop new architectures for ultra-low power and low-latency architectures of CMOS backplanes for OLED microdisplays. Such microdisplays are used in wearables, e.g. for augmented- and/or assisted-reality (AR) applications. Wearables require low power consumption, both for the backplane (pixel cell array) and the respective emitters. AR in the Tactile Internet also requires extremely low latencies (<1ms), which require new pixel cell, interface and data transmission architectures.
This interdisciplinary task requires a sound knowledge of CMOS circuit technology as well as the technological integration of emissive semiconductor layers on silicon wafers.

An interesting, challenging and varied task awaits you in a highly innovative environment of research and development. You will be responsible for the following tasks:
• Development, implementation and experimental validation of concepts for CMOS integrated optoelectronic sensors
• Design of analog, digital and mixed (mixed signal) integrated circuits
• Layout design for CMOS and OLED manufacturing
• Close cooperation with multidisciplinary departments and research partners (for example, OLED technology and
manufacturing)
• Development and implementation of Device and Test Specifications
• Technical and statistical evaluation of measurement results, circuit and device documentation

Requirements: You have a university degree (Master, Diploma) in electrical engineering (microelectronics, information technology), physics or similar programs. Good knowledge of digital and very good knowledge of analog semiconductor circuit technology, practical experience in the complete analog design flow as well as practical experience with design tools from cadence are necessary! Experience in full digital and mixed-signal design flow are very beneficial. In addition, good English skills are required, and German is highly appreciated.
