The mission of the Excellence Research Center “Dependable Internet of Things in Adverse Environments” is to foster a highly interdisciplinary research team spanning the computer science and electrical engineering faculties to lay the scientific foundations for an Internet of Things that is highly reliable, safe, and secure in order to enable critical applications that require guaranteed performance even in adverse environments.
Towards this goal, the center is currently seeking to fill 9 PhD positions with excellent candidates, who will work closely together in three sub-projects that focus on the following topics:
The positions are to be filled from July, 2019 with an initial appointment for three years. The positions are remunerated according to the collective contract (Kollektivvertrag) for Austrian Universities, i.e., the salary amounts to at least 40103€/year before taxes and may increase depending on prior experience.
Applicants must hold a Master degree (or equivalent) in computer engineering, computer science, or electrical engineering before they can take on the position. Proficiency in the English language (spoken and written) is required. Applicants should be highly motivated, have initiative and responsibility, be able to work independently and in an interdisciplinary team, should have interest in scientific research, should have commitment to publish research results and to obtain a doctoral degree.
TU Graz aims to increase the number of female employees and therefore specifically invites qualified women to apply.
TU Graz is a leading technical university in Austria (rank 75-100 in Shanghai subject ranking “Computer Science & Engineering”) in a medium-sized city with a very high quality of life, located at the south-eastern foot of the Alps, offering plentiful recreation opportunities.
The application deadline is June 7, 2019.
