PhD Positions in Computer Science with a Focus on Future Energy Systems

The design of future energy systems which can cope with fluctuating supply and flexible demand is an important concern of our society. As a PhD student in computer science, would you like the op-portunity to not only have results that advance the state-of-the-art in your field and have good publi-cations at selective venues, but also seriously engage in interactions with other disciplines, to en-sure that your results really give way to better energy systems?

If so, please read on: The German National Research Foundation (DFG) funds the research-training group 'Energy Status Data – Informatics Methods for its Collection, Analysis, and Exploitation' at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). We now seek to award several qualification scholarships within this program, which upon successful completion will become PhD positions after a few months. Please apply until March 15th 2018. Important prerequisites are interest in scientific work and a Master degree in computer science or a related discipline, e.g., mathematics, physics, busi-ness informatics. Successful candidates should demonstrate academic excellence and rigor as well as curiosity. See http://energystatusdata.kit.edu for more information on the research envisioned and the program.

We offer:

  • a lot of free space for scientific development,
  • excellent personal guidance and support,
  • fascinating research topics with a lot of societal relevance,
  • an open-minded and highly collaborative research environment
  • an international, interdisciplinary research surrounding with numerous occasions for co-operation,
  • opportunities for personal growth and further training leveraging the rich infrastructure at KIT, an institution that is both a university and a large-scale research facility,
  • an excellent living environment in an attractive, vibrant city in one of the most beautiful regions in Germany,
  • a salary that covers the living expenses in Germany well, together with free university registration.

Both DFG and KIT are pursuing a gender equality policy. We therefore particularly encourage quali-fied women to apply. If qualified, handicapped applicants will be preferred.

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is a public corporation pursuing the tasks of a State University of Baden-Wuerttemberg and of a national research center of the Helmholtz Association. The KIT mission combines the three strategic lines of activity of research, higher education, and innovation.
