4-Years Funded Doctoral Positions: Doctoral Program on Resilient Embedded Systems


TU Wien and FH Technikum Wien are seeking exceptionally talented and motivated students for their joint doctoral program on Resilient Embedded Systems.


This program is aimed at highly motivated students who want to work in one of these main research topics:

  • Digital circuits and hardware architectures
  • Dependable, real-time systems
  • Hybrid systems and optimal control
  • Quantitative and runtime verification
  • Computational modelling and simulation
  • Autonomous systems, robotics and automation systems integration
  • Control networks design
  • Cyber-physical social systems & (Industrial) Internet of Things

The Resilient Embedded Systems doctoral program is run jointly by TU Wien and FH Technikum Wien.


Organization - The prerequisite for becoming a PhD student is a finished master degree or equivalent, preferably with distinction, in the fields of Computer Science/Informatics, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Information Technology. More details, including the application procedure can be found at the webpage. Applications must be submitted by March 24, 2020 23:59 (CET).

After a first round of review, selected candidates will be invited for a hearing, in which they get an opportunity to present their research plans and to get in touch with potential advisors. Travel costs will be covered. The hearings will be scheduled for May 4-6, 2020.

A final decision will be made by mid of May 2020 and the Resilient Embedded Systems doctoral program for this cohort starts in October 2020.

The successful candidates will receive an employment from the hosting institution (TU Wien or FH Technikum Wien) following the standard salaries of TU Wien, at least 30.077,25 EUR gross We explicitly encourage female candidates to apply. Preference will be given when equally qualified.
