Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), as a University of Excellence, is one of the leading and most dynamic research institutions in the country. Founded in 1828, today it is a globally oriented, regionally anchored top university as it focuses on the grand challenges of the 21st century. lt develops innovative solutions for the world’s most pressing issues. In research and academic programs, the university unites the natural and engineering sciences with the humanities, social sciences and medicine. This wide range of disciplines is a special feature, facilitating interdisciplinarity and transfer of science to society. As a modern employer, it offers attractive working conditions to all employees in teaching, research, technology and administration. The goal is to promote and develop their individual abilities while empowering everyone to reach their full potential. TUD embodies a university culture that is characterized by cosmopolitanism, mutual appreciation, thriving innovation and active participation. For TUD diversity is an essential feature and a quality criterion of an excellent university. Accordingly, we welcome all applicants who would like to commit themselves, their achievements and productivity to the success of the whole institution.
At the Faculty of Computer Science, Institute of Computer Engineering, the Chair of Processor Design offers one fixed term position as
Research Associate (m/f/x)
(subject to grant approval, qualified employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
starting on April 1, 2023.
Research area:
Energy-Efficient Distributed and In-Network Computing through
Approximate Computing

The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG).
In the era of 5G/6G, diverse domains of applications, from personalized healthcare to image/video processing, and AI-based tasks shall be executed on millions of IoT edge devices. The ever-increasing complexity and real-time concerns in such energy-hungry applications not only has necessitated the need for distributed computing, but on-the-fly, via network elements (a.k.a in-network computing). To further alleviate such challenges for the power-constrained IoT devices, we aim to design configurable accelerators through the use of approximate computing techniques while satisfying the accuracy-requirements of such applications.
We aim at attracting the best talent in the respective research fields and expect the following:
