With its research agenda, the Ger­man Inter­net Insti­tute dares a par­tic­u­larly ambi­tious form of inter­dis­cip­lin­ar­ity. Both the research agenda and the group of applic­ants com­bine eco­nomic, social and polit­ical sci­ences, law, and com­puter sci­ence, and they develop research approaches and per­spect­ives that are sys­tem­at­ic­ally linked to each other in the design of the indi­vidual research groups.
Dur­ing the build-up phase, a total of 20 inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research groups will be work­ing at the Ger­man Inter­net Insti­tute. The groups con­sist of one research group leader and two to three doc­toral stu­dents and three stu­dent assist­ants. The TU Ber­lin is involved in three research groups at the Ger­man Inter­net Insti­tute.We are look­ing for a research group leader in the estab­lish­ment and man­age­ment of Research Group 20 "Crit­ic­al­ity of soft­ware-based sys­tems".
Todays soft­ware-based sys­tems are often dis­trib­uted and net­worked, are sub­ject to (soft and hard) real-time require­ments, are openly integ­rated into the envir­on­ment through their inter­faces, inter­act with other soft­ware-based sys­tems, and use learn­ing or autonom­ous func­tion­al­it­ies to con­trol com­plex­ity. The con­tinu­ous con­ver­gence of tech­no­lo­gies and the integ­ra­tion of sys­tems and pro­cesses are medi­ated and sup­por­ted in digital trans­form­a­tion via soft­ware. New devel­op­ments for Aug­men­ted Real­ity, Fab­bing, Robot­ics, Data Ana­lysis and "Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence" also define increas­ing demands on the reli­ab­il­ity and safety of soft­ware-based sys­tems. Aspects of eth­ics as well as war­ranty and liab­il­ity com­ple­ment the dimen­sions of the soft­ware qual­ity to func­tional adequacy, effi­ciency, reli­ab­il­ity, usab­il­ity, secur­ity, com­pat­ib­il­ity, main­tain­ab­il­ity and port­ab­il­ity.
The research group FG20 "Crit­ic­al­ity of soft­ware-based sys­tems" com­bines the com­mu­nic­a­tion-sci­ence and inform­a­tion-tech­no­logy per­spect­ive. The focus of research is on the pro­tec­tion pro­cesses of digital net­worked sys­tems, pro­cesses and infra­struc­tures. In par­tic­u­lar, data on soft­ware and soft­ware-based secur­ity incid­ents are ana­lyzed and pro­cessed. Inter­views, case stud­ies and field tri­als lead to improved role and pro­cess under­stand­ing. New meth­ods and tools for risk man­age­ment in oper­a­tion and use of soft­ware-based sys­tems are developed pro­to­typ­ic­ally and tested in case stud­ies.

  • Col­lab­or­a­tion with PhD stu­dents, Research Fel­lows and Guest Lec­tur­ers
  • Sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions, present­a­tions and demon­stra­tion of research res­ults
  • Con­tri­bu­tions to the organ­iz­a­tion and organ­iz­a­tion of con­fer­ences, for­ums, work­shops, etc. on the research pro­ject
more info­ramtions:


  • Suc­cess­fully com­pleted aca­demic uni­versity stud­ies in com­puter sci­ence, busi­ness inform­at­ics, legal inform­a­tion or com­par­able, as well as rel­ev­ant exper­i­ence in the over­lap­ping area of tech­no­logy (com­puter sci­ence) and cor­por­ate sci­ences, in par­tic­u­lar tech­no­logy soci­ology or tech­no­logy law ques­tions or respect­ively suc­cess­fully com­pleted aca­demic uni­versity stud­ies in com­mu­nic­a­tion sci­ence, as well as rel­ev­ant exper­i­ence in com­mu­nic­a­tion in tech­no­logy, digital media and media tech­no­lo­gies
  • Very good oral and writ­ten Eng­lish skills (C1 / C2 level) and desired Ger­man lan­guage skills (C1 / C2 level)

We would like to have exper­i­ence and know­ledge in sev­eral of the fol­low­ing areas:

  • Exper­i­ence in cooper­a­tion with the national and inter­na­tional research com­munity
  • Exper­i­ence in work­ing with stake­hold­ers of the eco­nomy, civil soci­ety, polit­ics and / or admin­is­tra­tion
  • Exper­i­ence in the imple­ment­a­tion of third party pro­jects
  • teach­ing exper­i­ence
