The Peer-to-Peer networks group has moved to TU Dresden. Job applicants interested in privacy and social networking are invited to browse there. Job applicants who are mainly interested in Peer-to-Peer networks may find opportunities at the "Peer-to-Peer Systems" group in the EE faculty.
We always welcome new members at the Peer-to-Peer Networking group and we are very interested in working together with excellent researchers from different national and cultural backgrounds.
The P2P group regularly has new vacancies for PhD students and generally welcomes applications from very good candidates who are willing to work hard and have a profound background in networking, distributed systems, and security.
Prospective candidates for PhD positions need to have a Master's (MSc) or comparable degree (5 years at the university level). Very good English skills are a prerequisite, basic knowledge in the German language will help in the day to day life in Darmstadt, but is not needed for the work at the research group.
Please send us your complete application, comprising of
The same holds for potential DAAD scholars.
We always welcome interns at our research group, as well, even though we do not offer any funding for internships, at the moment. Funding for international interns is available through DAAD, IAESTE, and numerous other organizations, please apply for your funding first.
However, due to the high number of applications we already receive (on the order of 10 applications per week), we ask you to provide us with the exact same information as prospective PhD students. Especially important is making absolutely clear in which of our fields you are interested and motivating well a research idea and project you would like to pursue during your internship. The proposal does not have to be perfect and we might actually ask you to work on a slightly different topic, once you are here, but applications that fail to state an interest matching our research will unfortunately be ignored.
Please send your applications (after making sure that you and the application meet all the requirements as stated above) to the head of the research group.
