It pursues a long-term overall development program aimed at making TU Dresden an international top university.

At the Faculty of Computer Science, the Institute of Systems Architecture, for the Cluster of Excellence “Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop” (CeTI), invites applications for a

Junior Professorship (W1) in Computer Science, specifically Tactile Computing

with a four-year contract, to be filled at the earliest possible date.

Following a positive interim evaluation, the contract will be extended to a total of six years. Evaluation criteria mutually agreed upon when the position is accepted will form the basis of the evaluation procedure.
