The Department of Computer Science of Technical University of Darmstadt
invites applications for the position of a
Full Professor (W3) for „Resilient Networked Computing“
effective as soon as possible.
We are looking for an outstanding scientist who will represent the topic area
of resilient networked computing in research and teaching with a computer
science perspective. The professorship shall address selected grand challenges
at the intersection of the following topic areas:
availability/dependability/resiliency/security, computer networks and
distributed systems, and complex interconnected software systems. Selected
research topics of interest are:
Complex networked or massively distributed software systems with mission-
critical requirements regarding availability/dependability (cyber-
physical systems, Internet of things, autonomous systems, etc.)
Novel paradigms for increasing the resilience of networked computing
systems through stress absorption, efficient recovery, or system
Fundamentals/theory of analysis, modelling and design of
resilient/dependable computing systems
Systems support to increase the resilience; system support for/using AI-
Inherently scalable, resilient distributed/decentralized security
Reconfiguration and adaptation of computing systems under disruptive
conditions (natural disaster, large-scale cyberattacks, blackouts, etc.)
Resilience in intelligent (smart) environments and application domains
such as healthcare, critical infrastructures, or digital cities
Candidates are expected to represent the topic area in our undergraduate as
well as graduate-level computer science programs.
We expect an outstanding scientific profile documented by research impact. We
expect candidates to have documented expertise and contributed novel
approaches addressing the core questions of resilient networked computing
systems: algorithms, protocols, software and system design, modelling and
performance analysis, etc. A proven track record of successful collaboration
in international research teams and with industry is advantageous.
The professorship shall strengthen the research focus on complex
interconnected systems at the Department of Computer Science as well as the
research field information and intelligence on the university level.
Collaboration with other focus areas such as artificial intelligence and
cybersecurity on the department and university level is welcome. The
professorship is embedded into the research centre LOEWE emergenCITY.
Affiliation with the National Research Center for Cybersecurity ATHENE and the
Hessian Center for Artificial Intelligence hessian.ai are possible and
In addition to excellent scientific credentials and a completed doctoral
degree, a commitment to teaching is important. It is expected that the
candidate will contribute to teaching in the bachelor´s and master's degree
programs of the Department of Computer Science. Participation in academic
governance is expected.
