Bark­hau­sen Insti­tut gGmbH - Inter­net der Dinge

The Bark­hau­sen Insti­tute per­forms rese­arch on the latest hard­ware, soft­ware and com­mu­nic­a­tion tech­no­lo­gies and demon­stra­tes their app­lic­a­tion in tomor­row's soci­ety. Our goal is to build a flex­ible and trust­worthy IoT plat­form based on reli­able elec­tron­ics and secure com­mu­nic­a­tion meth­ods.

Research Associate/Postdoc “IT-Security & Privacy” (m/f/d)

Working field:

  • Design and devel­op­ment of tailo­red IT-secur­ity and pri­vacy solu­tions for spe­cific use-cases and app­lic­a­tion domains
  • Cre­ation of gen­eral frame­works and mod­els for enab­ling IT-secur­ity and pri­vacy in the domain of Inter­net of Things
  • Ana­lysis and eval­u­ation of exist­ing IT-secur­ity and pri­vacy solu­tions
  • Engage­ment in Sci­ence Com­mu­nic­a­tion
  • Par­ti­cip­a­tion in writ­ing pro­ject pro­pos­als, pro­ject man­age­ment and cre­at­ing pro­ject deliv­er­ables


  • Above-aver­age MSc/Dip­loma and PhD degree in areas rela­ted to our rese­arch focus (Com­puter Sci­ence with spe­cial focus on IT-secur­ity & pri­vacy) from renow­ned uni­ver­sit­ies.
  • Good com­mu­nic­a­tion and writ­ing skills in Eng­lish.
  • An integ­rat­ive and coo­per­at­ive per­son­al­ity with excel­lent com­mu­nic­a­tion and social skills.
  • Excel­lent and broad know­ledge in the fields of IT-secur­ity and pri­vacy-enhan­cing tech­no­lo­gies with spe­cial focus on Inter­net of Things, Cloud Com­put­ing (espe­cially Edge Clouds) and 5G.
  • Spe­cial know­ledge in at least one of the fol­low­ing domains:
    • cryp­to­gra­phy
      - stat­ist­ics and sto­chastics
      - pri­vacy enhan­cing tech­no­lo­gies
      - eco­nom­ics of IT-secur­ity & pri­vacy
      - usab­il­ity aspects of IT-secur­ity & pri­vacy
      - for­mal pro­ofs and veri­fic­a­tion
      - IT-secur­ity & pri­vacy in and by machine learn­ing
      - meas­ur­ing & eval­u­at­ing IT-secur­ity and pri­vacy e.g. by means like dif­fer­en­tial pri­vacy

You are inter­ested, but you don’t think you meet all the require­ments of the job post­ing? Then you should know: We don’t hire resu­mes, we hire people. We are look­ing for poten­tial and want to act­ively fos­ter it. That‘s why we encour­age you to apply!

What we offer:

  • An open and cre­at­ive team
  • Agile work­ing hours and work­flows
  • Cross-dis­cip­lin­ary pro­jects
  • Work on future tech­no­lo­gies
  • Flat hier­arch­ies for your ideas and flex­ible teams
  • Com­pet­it­ive salary

If you have pas­sion for new tech­no­lo­gies and the desire to deve­lop the con­nec­ted world of tomor­row with us, we are look­ing for you.

Life and sci­ence are com­pat­ible at our insti­tute. We offer a range of recog­nised fam­ily-fri­endly meas­ures, such as part-time work, mobile work­ing and flex­ible work­ing hours that take fam­ily needs into account. We also offer sup­port for arriv­ing in Dres­den (all form­al­it­ies, apart­ment etc.).

How to apply:

Your app­lic­a­tion should include: motiv­a­tion let­ter, CV, copy of uni­ver­sity degree cer­ti­fic­ate, short sum­mary of Mas­ter the­sis.

App­lic­a­tions from women are par­tic­u­larly wel­come. We only accept com­plete doc­u­ments as one sin­gle PDF doc­u­ment by e-mail to Please ref­er­ence “Secur­ity PhD-2021” in the sub­ject line. App­lic­a­tions that con­tain other file for­mats (e.g. Word, Excel) will not be con­side­red in the selec­tion pro­cess. Infor­mal inquir­ies can also be sub­mit­ted to the same address.

The data sub­mit­ted by you in the course of the app­lic­a­tion pro­ced­ure will be pro­ces­sed by the Bark­hau­sen Insti­tut (BI). BI shall use the data for the pur­poses of the app­lic­a­tion pro­ced­ure. No data shall be pas­sed on to third par­ties.
