Post-doc Researcher

KIT - Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen, Germany

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) – The Research University in the Helmholtz Association creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is our goal to make significant contributions to mastering the global challenges of mankind in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 9.800 employees of KIT cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in research, academic education, and innovation.

We are looking for the Institut für Informationssicherheit und Verlässlichkeit (KASTEL) as soon as possible limited for 2 years for a Post-doc Researcher (f/m/d).

Software-intensive autonomous and heterogeneous systems are becoming widely available as an open-ended collection of systems, collaborating to improve our lives. However, our world is dynamic, user behaviour changes and computer and communication infrastructures fail due to unforeseen events, including malicious attacks. Consequently, the need for our technical systems to automatically adapt to new situations, counter unforeseen events and deal with imprecise data is increasing considerably.

To achieve their full potential, these adaptive autonomous systems must be resilient, i. e., they must continue to provide the required functionality despite the uncertainty, change, faults, failure, adversity, and other (anticipated and unforeseen) disruptions present in their real-world operating environments. Numerous methods for developing resilient (adaptive) autonomous systems have been independently proposed or are being explored by different projects worldwide. However, despite recent advances in autonomous technologies, the research on resilient adaptive autonomous systems remains fragmented.

In a network of leading scientists, together with computer scientists and engineers, you will research procedures, tools and methods for the design of software-intensive resilient self-adaptive systems. Your results will enable the efficient construction of sustainable technical products. The approaches you research allow, for example, the imple¬men¬tation of modern visions of mobility.

As a senior researcher, you will also apply for and supervise third-party funded projects, take responsibility for the budget, organise international conferences and scientific and strategic workshops, have management and personnel responsibility, supervise doctoral students in your field of research and coordinate scientific collaboration with other research groups and laboratories at the KASTEL Institute.

Personal qualification

  • Doctorate's degree in computer science (or defence date defined);
  • Interest and ideally experience in interdisciplinary work in the field of computer science and engineering;
  • Experience with development and analysis methods for software-intensive self-adaptive systems;
  • Specialisation in formal methods and model-driven engineering;
  • Pleasure in taking on responsibility;
  • Ability to communicate in spoken and written form, confident command of the English language, good knowledge of German or willingness to acquire it.

Become a member of staff of the only German University of Excellence that conducts large-scale research on the national level. Work under excellent working conditions in an international environment. Benefit from specific training when starting your job and from a wide range of further qualification offers. Use our flexible working time models (flexitime, work from home), our sports and leisure offers, as well as our child and holiday care services. We also pay a share of EUR 25/month in the Job Ticket Baden-Württemberg. Enjoy a large variety of dishes, snacks, and beverages at our canteens.

We prefer to balance the number of employees (f/m/d). Therefore we kindly ask female applicants to apply for this job.

Recognized severely disabled persons will be preferred if they are equally qualified.

Please apply online until 29.02.2024 using the vacancy number 709/2023 to Ms Julia König, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Human Resources, Hermann-von-Helmholtz-Platz 1, 76344 Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen, Germany. For further information, please contact Prof. Dr. Raffaela Mirandola, E-Mail:
