Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Insti­tute of Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Chair of Com­pi­ler Con­struc­tion

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate

(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The pro­ject posi­tion is star­ting March 1, 2021.
Rese­arch area: Com­pi­ler rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ons and opti­mi­za­tion for sys­tems with emer­ging memory tech­no­lo­gies
Terms: The posi­tion is limi­ted to Febru­ary 29, 2024 (with the option to be exten­ded – sub­ject to fur­ther third-party fun­ded pro­jects). The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz – WissZeitVG).

Work­ing field:

At the Chair of Com­pi­ler Con­struc­tion we have the long-term vision of sha­ping the way future elec­tro­nic sys­tems are to be pro­gram­med. This inclu­des defi­ning novel pro­gramming abs­trac­tions by means of domain-spe­ci­fic lan­guages and asso­cia­ted com­pi­ler infra­st­ruc­tures to enable opti­mi­sing soft­ware for large-scale hete­ro­ge­ne­ous and dis­tri­bu­ted com­pu­ting sys­tems. In this con­text, we are loo­king for a highly moti­va­ted rese­ar­cher to work on high-level opti­mi­za­ti­ons for sys­tems with emer­ging memory tech­no­lo­gies. This invol­ves aspects of data pla­ce­ment for sys­tems that com­bine main­stream memo­ries (SRAM and DRAM) with emer­ging memo­ries (spin-tor­que-trans­fer-RAM, phase change memory and race­track memo­ries), and also novel tech­ni­ques to effec­tively exploit com­pu­ta­tion-in-memory and com­pu­ta­tion-near-memory. The selec­ted can­di­date will work with state-of-the-art com­pi­ler frame­works (LLVM, MLIR, and Pluto), and memory and sys­tem simu­la­tors. The long term goal is to create abs­trac­tions than can be exten­ded and re-used for sys­tems bey­ond those addres­sed in the pro­ject.


We aim at attrac­ting the best talent in the respec­tive rese­arch fields and expect the fol­lo­wing:
  • an out­stan­ding uni­ver­sity degree (mas­ter/diploma or equi­va­lent) in com­pu­ter sci­ence, mathe­ma­tics, elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring or a rele­vant area;
  • first rese­arch expe­ri­ence, pre­fer­a­bly in com­pi­lers, app­lied mathe­ma­tics (e.g., graph algo­rithms), opti­mi­za­tion tech­ni­ques, poly­he­dral com­pi­lers;
  • sound know­ledge in com­pu­ter archi­tec­ture;
  • know­ledge of LLVM IR and MLIR are highly bene­fi­cial;
  • an inde­pen­dent, tar­get- and solu­tion-dri­ven work atti­tude;
  • inter- and mul­ti­di­sci­pli­nary thin­king;
  • an inte­gra­tive and coope­ra­tive per­so­na­lity with excel­lent com­mu­ni­ca­tion and social skills;
  • flu­ency in Eng­lish - writ­ten and oral.

Infor­mal enqui­ries can be sub­mit­ted to Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jeronimo Cas­tril­lon, Tel +49 (351) 463 42716; Email:
App­li­ca­ti­ons from women are par­ti­cu­larly wel­come. The same app­lies to people with disa­bi­li­ties.

What we offer
You will join a team of enthu­si­astic rese­ar­chers who pur­sue crea­tively their indi­vi­dual rese­arch agenda. The chair is a part of the “Cen­ter for Advan­cing Elec­tro­nics Dres­den”, which offers ple­nty of resour­ces and struc­tures for career deve­lop­ment.

About cfaed
The cfaed is a clus­ter which brings tog­e­ther 200 rese­ar­chers from TU Dres­den and ten other rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the areas of Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, Mate­ri­als Sci­ence, Phy­sics, Che­mi­stry, Bio­logy, and Mathe­ma­tics. The cfaed addres­ses the advan­ce­ment of elec­tro­nic infor­ma­tion pro­ces­sing sys­tems through explo­ring new tech­no­lo­gies which over­come the limits of today’s pre­do­mi­nant CMOS tech­no­logy.

About TU Dres­den
The TU Dres­den is among the top uni­ver­si­ties in Ger­many and Europe and one of the ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an ‘elite uni­ver­sity’ since 2012. As a modern full-sta­tus uni­ver­sity with 17 facul­ties it offers a wide aca­de­mic range making it one of a very few in Ger­many.
