    Pro­fess­or­ship (W2) Dis­trib­uted Meas­ure­ment Sys­tems and Sensor

    Net­works (Joint pro­fess­or­ship, Jülich model)

    in per­sonal union with the lead­er­ship of the group “Wire­less Sensor

    Net­works and Mid­dle­ware

    Working field:

    The future hol­der of the pro­fess­or­ship "Dis­trib­uted Meas­ure­ment Sys­tems and Sen­sor Net­works" should rep­res­ent this field in rese­arch and teach­ing, espe­cially in the con­text of the Cyber-Secur­ity Mas­ter's pro­gramme, and should have excel­lent sci­ent­i­fic cre­den­tials in the field of Dis­trib­uted Meas­ure­ment Sys­tems and Sen­sor Net­works.

    The joint pro­fess­or­ship is based on the Jülich model and inclu­des an oblig­a­tion to hold cour­ses at the BTU in the amount of 2 LVS. Lec­tures are pri­mar­ily to be held in Ger­man, flu­ency in Eng­lish is expec­ted.

    Other duties res­ult from the require­ments set by § 42 Bran­den­bur­gisches Hoch­schul­ge­setz (Hig­her Edu­ca­tion Act of the State of Bran­den­burg - BbgHG) in con­junc­tion with § 3 BbgHG.


    The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate should have sev­eral years of suc­cess­ful rese­arch and devel­op­ment work in this field. Since the pro­fess­or­ship is asso­ci­ated with the lead­er­ship of a rese­arch group at IHP, the can­did­ate must have exper­i­ence in lead­ing mul­tina­tio­nal teams, e.g. from EU pro­jects.

    The future post hol­der is expec­ted to be sci­en­tific­ally act­ive in at least two of the fol­low­ing rese­arch areas:

    1. reli­ab­il­ity and secur­ity in wire­less sen­sor net­works and dis­trib­uted sens­ing sys­tems 2. energy effi­ciency of sen­sor nodes and sen­sor net­works - soft­ware and hard­ware solu­tions 3. mod­u­lar­ity in hard­ware and soft­ware: real­isa­tion for sen­sor nodes and sen­sor net­works 4. design meth­od­o­logy and reusab­il­ity of exist­ing par­tial solu­tions (mod­ules) 5. oper­at­ing sys­tems and mid­dle­ware solu­tions for sen­sor net­works and dis­trib­uted meas­ure­ment sys­tems 6. sen­sor data pro­ces­sing using arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence 7. IT secur­ity aspects in the area of dis­trib­uted resource-lim­ited sys­tems.

    Suit­able app­lic­a­tion areas include smart city, smart grid and envir­on­men­tal mon­it­or­ing.

    Exper­i­ence in the acquis­i­tion and real­iz­a­tion of third-party fun­ded pro­jects is expec­ted. Fields of rese­arch should be rel­ev­ant for the DFG (Ger­man Rese­arch Found­a­tion) or sim­ilar inter­na­tio­nal rese­arch fund­ing organ­isa­tions.

    Please refer to §§ 41 para­graph 1 No 1 – 4a and 43 BbgHG for pre­requis­ites and con­di­tions of employ­ment.
