Research Associate (m/f/x)

At the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Institute of Communication Technology, the Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks offers a position under the EU project New MOBility solutions for Climate Neutrality in EU Cities as

Research Associate (m/f/x)
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)

starting as soon as possible. The position is limited to 3 years. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG). The position offers the chance to obtain further academic qualification (usually PhD).

The aim of this project is to demonstrate that innovative concepts for passenger mobility and freight transport, designed and implemented following participative and user-centric principles are cost-effective and feasible solutions to contribute significantly to the cities’ transformation towards climate-neutrality, allowing to speed up the process even to reach SCOPE 2 emissions reduction in 2030. Acting as a Lead City, Dresden with Madrid together will implement 11 pilots comprising 27 very innovative solutions for mobility of people and freight, exploiting the combined potential of electrification, automation and connectivity. In this context, TUD acts as a partner for research and technology organisation, and ComNets provides research in innovative charging infrastructure and green fuel vehicles with advanced infrastructure of connectivity (5G 6G). The project is carried out in collaboration with 28 other partners.
