Call for 4-Years Funded Doctoral Positions Doctoral Program On Resilient Embedded Systems


TU Wien and UAS Technikum Wien are seeking exceptionally talented and motivated students for their joint doctoral program on Resilient Embedded Systems.

Doctoral Program on Resilient Embedded Systems

This program is aimed at highly motivated students who want to work in one of these main research topics:

* Digital circuits and hardware architectures
* Dependable, real-time systems
* Hybrid systems and optimal control
* Quantitative and runtime verification
* Computational modeling and simulation
* Autonomous systems, robotics and automation systems integration
* Control networks design
* Cyber-physical social systems & (Industrial) Internet of Things

The Resilient Embedded Systems doctoral program is funded by the Austrian BMBWF and run jointly by TU Wien and UAS Technikum Wien.

How to apply

Organization - The prerequisite for becoming a PhD student is a finished master  degree or equivalent, preferably with distinction, in the fields of Computer  Science/Informatics, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Information  Technology. More details, including the application procedure can be found at the webpage. Applications must be submitted by March 24, 2019 23:59 (CET). After a first round of review, selected candidates will be invited for a hearing, in which they get an opportunity to present their research plans and to get in touch with potential advisors. Travel costs will be covered. The hearings will be scheduled for June 20-22, 2019. A final decision will be made end of June 2018 and the Resilient Embedded Systems  doctoral program starts in October 2019.
