Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fak­ultät IV

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty IV - Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing and Com­puter Sci­ence – Insti­tute of Tele­com­mu­nic­a­tion Sys­tems - invites applic­a­tions for a pos­i­tion of a

Uni­versity Pro­fessor - salary grade W 3

in the field of “Inter­net Archi­tec­ture and Man­age­ment“.

Work­ing field:

Research and teach­ing in the area of inter­net archi­tec­tures and pro­to­cols with emphasis on at least one of the fol­low­ing fields:
  • Net­work Archi­tec­tures: coex­ist­ence of inform­a­tion cent­ric and clas­sical archi­tec­tures, innov­at­ive archi­tec­tures for sup­port­ing inform­a­tion place­ment and pro­cessing place­ment under joint trans­mis­sion, stor­age, and pro­cessing point of view, joint rout­ing and resource alloc­a­tion.
  • Soft­ware Defined Net­works and Net­work Vir­tu­al­isa­tion: sep­ar­a­tion of con­trol and user plane, fur­ther devel­op­ment of con­trol pro­to­cols and inter­faces (bey­ond open stack, and P4), cor­rect­ness veri­fic­a­tion of con­trol pro­to­cols, con­trol­ler place­ment/ net­work func­tion place­ment (optim­iz­a­tion) and relo­ca­tion (exe­cu­tion pro­to­cols), dynamic para­met­riz­a­tion of co-loc­ated slices accord­ing to the offered traffic and avail­able capa­cit­ies.
  • Pro­gram­mable Routers: optim­iz­a­tion of the soft­ware archi­tec­ture, per­form­ance mod­el­ling and eval­u­ation, com­pon­ent load ana­lysis
  • Inter­net Secur­ity and Resi­li­ence: secur­ity of soft­war­ized net­works, detec­tion of secur­ity vul­ner­ab­il­it­ies (with spe­cial respect to con­trol plane) secur­ity breaks and net­work com­pon­ent fail­ures. Traffic net­work meas­ure­ments for cyber secur­ity.
  • Traffic and QoS Mon­it­or­ing: on-line traffic ana­lysis and QoS mon­it­or­ing, net­work meas­ure­ments for bot­tle­neck iden­ti­fic­a­tion.
  • Pro­to­cols Sup­port­ing Ver­tic­als - e.g. improved con­tent deliv­ery, tact­ile inter­net, Inter­net of things. Har­mon­iz­a­tion of the ver­tic­als sup­port in the core net­work with the sup­port in the access net­works (espe­cially in Post 5G archi­tec­tures).

Proven achieve­ments in both the­or­et­ical and exper­i­mental research is required. Close cooper­a­tion with research groups in related fields such as Data Com­mu­nic­a­tions and Net­work­ing, Inform­a­tion The­ory, Dis­trib­uted Sys­tems, Video Com­mu­nic­a­tion, Inter­net Meas­ure­ment and Ana­lysis, Ser­vice Cent­ric Net­work­ing and oth­ers is expec­ted.

The teach­ing oblig­a­tion includes the basic lec­tures on com­puter net­work­ing and pro­to­cols, con­trol within and between net­worked autonom­ous sys­tems, the impact on ser­vices such as video stream­ing etc. as well the prin­ciples of net­work­ing pro­to­cols. Addi­tional lec­tures should con­sider per­form­ance eval­u­ations of inter­net archi­tec­tures and the design of Inter­net algorithms. The courses will be part of the Bach­elor and the Mas­ter degree pro­grams offered by the Fac­ulty IV - Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing and Com­puter Sci­ence.

Ber­lin offers a rich research envir­on­ment in the field and related areas includ­ing sev­eral non-uni­versity research insti­tutes, such that a wide range of research col­lab­or­a­tion oppor­tun­it­ies is pos­sible.


Can­did­ates must ful­fill the require­ments for appoint­ment at the pro­fessor level in com­pli­ance with § 100 Ber­lHG (Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act), includ­ing a fin­ished aca­demic edu­ca­tion, qual­i­fied achieve­ments in research (PhD), post-doc­toral lec­ture qual­i­fic­a­tion (Habil­it­a­tion) or equi­val­ent qual­i­fic­a­tion (e.g. doc­u­mented by qual­ity of sci­entific papers) and ped­ago­gical didactic qual­i­fic­a­tions, to be given proof of by a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for more inform­a­tion see TUB web­site, quick access no. 144242).
Fur­ther­more, we expect proven expert­ise in the­or­et­ical and exper­i­mental research and an excel­lent pub­lic­a­tion record in at least one of the above­men­tioned tech­nical fields; teach­ing exper­i­ence and com­pet­ence in the man­age­ment of a work­ing group.
The will­ing­ness to offer Eng­lish-lan­guage teach­ing is required.

Applic­ants are reques­ted to sub­mit a first concept of the research and teach­ing activ­it­ies envis­aged with their applic­a­tion. Evid­ence of exper­i­ence in the suc­cess­ful acquis­i­tion of external fund­ing is desired.
