The Institute of Computer Engineering (ZITI) at Heidelberg University invites applications for several
in computer science and engineering. Each fellowship includes a full-time position for 2 years, a yearly budget that is at free disposal of the fellow and a coaching program in support of the academic career. Each fellow will be assigned a ZITI member as a personal mentor for the duration of the fellowship. The fellowships provide exceptional flexibility and allow for a broad range of research topics. Ideally they should enrich the ongoing research activities at ZITI, e.g. in new computational systems, analog circuits and sensors, FPGAs, GPU and HPC algorithms, machine learning, energy efficiency, or biomechanics and robotics. Please specify in your application to which research group you see the closest connection.
The main aim of the fellowship program is to support young researchers in exploring new research ideas and in enabling them to successfully apply for long-term funding of an independent junior research group by the end of the fellowship. ZITI will support the fellows in selecting appropriate funding schemes and in the application process. An independent junior research group is a career step comparable to an assistant professorship, so that subsequently a full professorship can be targeted.
Heidelberg University is a comprehensive research university with a strong focus on research at the highest international standard. With around 30,000 students and 8,400 employees, including numerous top researchers, it is a globally respected institution that also has outstanding economic significance for the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region.
ZITI encourages both early stage and emerging PostDocs with 0-6 years after PhD degree to apply. We envision a co-application to the Walter Benjamin Program of the German Science Foundation for early stage researchers or the European MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships for emerging postdoctoral researchers. Please use the templates and guidelines (Walter Benjamin Program Template, MSCA PF, Bart B) provided by these programs to structure your application for the ZITI fellowship.
Full consideration will be given to applications received by 11 September 2022 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Heidelberg University stands for equal opportunities and diversity. Qualified female candidates are especially invited to apply. Persons with severe disabilities will be given preference if they are equally qualified. Information on the application process and the collection of personal data is available at www.uni-heidelberg.de/en/job-market.
Beyond the open topic call above certain ZITI groups provide additional funding for research of particular topics within their groups.
The Circuit Design group requests applications for
- the development and application of ASICs which include Single Photon Avalanche Diodes and full custom readout circuitry on one die, the further development and characterization of a 65nm mixed mode CMOS ASIC as part of the ‘Xider’ hybrid pixel sensor for hard X-ray detection.
The Application Specific Computing group requests applications for
- research on numerical methods (e.g. AMG, Krylov, preconditioners, adaptivity, FMM, SVD) targeting parallel implementations on many-core CPUs and GPUs research on fast graph algorithms (e.g. partitioning, coloring, decomposition, BFS, MST) targeting parallel implementations on many-core CPUs and GPUs
