The School of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics seeks applications that establish research in fundamentals of embedded software systems at TUHH. The target group are early-career scientists having achieved a doctoral degree of outstanding quality. Applicants are expected to have undertaken independent research and to be skilled in teaching. They must show a strong interest in interdisciplinary work with other engineering sciences present at TUHH and in application domains such as industrial control systems, automation technology, robotics, mechatronics or wearable systems. We particularly welcome applications from candidates with a background in operating systems including but not limited to:


  • Operating systems for resource-constrained and low-power systems
  • Programming paradigms, languages, and tools for firmware development
  • Real-time operating systems
  • Virtualization and isolation, mixed-critical systems

      The successful candidate is expected to offer courses in Computer Science and related degree programs both at the undergraduate and graduate level.

      The TUHH acknowledges exceptional and innovative teaching achievements and capabilities. Successful applicants will therefore contribute to TUHH’s prominent profile of innovative teaching methods with high quality undergraduate (B.Sc.) and graduate (M.Sc.) courses.
