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 Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering created positions for researchers in CeTI to be filled at various chairs from January 2019.
See the list of vacancies below.

Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks

One Research associate / PhD student / Postdoc for SDN/NFV/ICN at the Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks.

  • Topic: Low latency and resilient communication in meshed networks (Research room TP3)
  • Tasks: Your task is to develop and apply different coding and compression theories for the Tactile Internet. The solutions found need to be tailored for embedded systems developed in other CeTI research groups. Solutions such as network coding, compressed sensing, and functional compression need to be combined and applied to different networks topologies. Especially use cases around the body area network are of special interest in this case. Compression for tactile and haptic scenarios are developed together with CeTI research room K1.
  • Requirements: We are looking for one candidate with a very good university degree in electrical engineering or computer science with respect aforementioned theories. Team spirit and collaboration will be essential for the project.
  • Information: The Job-ID is CeTI-position_Fitzek_1. More information can be found on the Jobs page of TU-Dresden.

One Research associate / PhD student / Postdoc for SDN/NFV/ICN at the Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks.

  • Topic: Softwarerised communication networks for the Tactile Internet (Research room K2)
  • Tasks: Your task is to develop solutions for software defined networks (SDN), network function virtualisation (NFV), and information centric networks (ICN) with respect to low latency, resilient, and secure communication for the Tactile Internet. Different network architectures and topologies spanning from body area networks, via local area networks, to wide area networks are considered. The solutions developed need to be tailored for the three use cases within CeTI, namely medicine, industry, and the Internet of Skills. Essential is the collaboration with and understanding of different research rooms within CeTI.
  • Requirements: We are looking for one candidate with a very good university degree in electrical engineering or computer science with respect to aforementioned technologies. Knowledge of programming is a prerequisite for a position within CeTI. Team spirit and collaboration will be essential for the project.
  • Information: The Job-ID is CeTI-position_Fitzek_2. More information can be found on the Jobs page of TU-Dresden.

Faculty of Computer Science

The Faculty of Computer Science has CeTI researcher positions at various chairs in Dresden to be filled from January 2019.
See the list of open positions below.

Chair of Systems Engineering

One Research associate / PhD student for a safe, secure, and scalable computing infrastructure that enables intuitive tactile interaction at the Chair of Systems Engineering.

  • Topic: Trusted computing in untrusted edge and IoT environments.
  • Tasks: Designing, building and evaluating a low latency, energy-efficient and secure platform that can be used to build trusted SDN, NFV and ICN. Moreover, this platform can be used to build trusted deep learning as well as trusted classifiers. The platform can be ported both on high-end as well as low-end, energy-efficient processors.
  • Requirements: The candidate has a university degree in computer science, or related fields, with initial experience in systems research and good development skills. Very good command of the English language; be flexible, proactive, independent, and a team-player.
  • Information: The Job-ID is CeTI-position_Fetzer_1. More information can be found on the Jobs page of TU-Dresden.
Chair of Computer Graphics and Visualisation

One Research associate / PhD student for 3D scanning / 3D rendering at the Chair of Computer Graphics and Visualisation.

  • Topic: Develop 3D acquisition pipeline for fast and distributed capturing of virtual world model and support of real-time rendering for augmented reality technologies (Research room TP5)
  • Tasks: To enable multimodal interaction and co-working of humans and machines, the understanding of the geometric environment is essential. The environments in the use cases of CeTI are dynamic und need to be updated on the fly through newly developed acquisition techniques. Furthermore, fast communication of detailed 3D information to the user is an essential building block of CeTI use cases and provided through augmented reality glasses among other modalities.
    The task for this position is twofold. On the one hand, the realisation of a fast 3D acquisition pipeline based on the portable 3D sensors developed in TP2 that can build and update a consistent 3D world model incrementally. On the other hand real-time rendering approaches will be developed that allow low latency rendering of detailed 3D information to the augmented reality classes developed in TP2. Close collaborations are planed with researchers from TP2 on multimodal interaction as well as with the chair of Machine Learning for Computer Vision on the extraction of semantic information from the acquired geometry data.
  • Requirements: The candidate has a university degree in computer science, maths, or related fields, with initial experience in 3D scanning and real-time rendering. Very good command of the English language; be flexible, proactive, independent, and a team-player.
  • Information: The Job-ID is CeTI-position_Fetzer_1. More information can be found on the Jobs page of TU-Dresden.

Faculty of Medicine Carl Gustav Carus

The Faculty of Medicine Carl Gustav Carus has positions for CeTI researchers starting January 2019.
See the list of vacancies below.

Chair of Visceral, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery

One Surgical resident / Research associate for robotic-assisted surgery at the Chair of Visceral, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery.

  • Topic: Robotic-assisted skill acquisition in surgery and context-aware assistance
  • Tasks: Within the CeTI scientific programme the research room U1 aims at developing novel computer- and robotic-assisted methods to enhance medical care in the operating room of the future. A primary goal is the systematic capturing, modelling, and analysis of surgical expert skills in a sensor- and robotic-equipped operating room.
    This will enable a holistic machine-interpretable acquisition of surgical expertise, which paves the way for generating a library of medical skills like endoscope guidance or sonography tasks. Based on the library, learned skills will be accessible to both machines and other surgeons.
  • Requirements: We are looking for a highly motivated medical doctor, preferably a surgical resident with a keen interest in robotic assisted surgery and with the commitment to dedicate a share of his/her clinical activity to the described research project. Fluent proficiency in spoken and written English and German, German approbation or equivalent as well as the ability to collaborate well in an interdisciplinary environment are essential. The candidate will receive a surgical education as well as the opportunity to be part of an up to date research project.
  • Information: The Job-ID is CeTI-position_Weitz_1. More information can be found on the Jobs page of TU-Dresden.
