Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Boy­sen-TU Dres­den-Rese­arch Trai­ning Group

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Post­doc Posi­tion

The Boy­sen-TU Dres­den-Rese­arch Trai­ning Group for young rese­ar­chers from Engi­nee­ring, Social Sci­en­ces, Arts and Huma­nities, co-finan­ced by the Fried­rich and Eli­sa­beth Boy­sen Foun­da­tion and the Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den, is offe­ring a Post­doc Posi­tion
star­ting on Febru­ary 01, 2020, for a period of 2 years with the pos­si­bi­lity of an exten­sion of a fur­ther 2 years. The remu­ne­ra­tion is based on the DFG gui­de­li­nes for doc­to­ral rese­ar­chers.
The inter­di­sci­pli­nary Boy­sen-TU Dres­den Rese­arch Trai­ning Group Mobi­lity in flux - Chal­len­ges and solu­ti­ons for tech­no­logy, envi­ron­ment and society con­sists of four clus­ters of three to five PhD pro­jects each, into which this post­doc pro­ject should be inte­gra­ted.

Work­ing field:

In the frame­work of the post­doc pro­ject Exno­va­tion wit­hin Mobi­lity Change – Impli­ca­ti­ons for Resource Eco­logy and Society, exno­va­tions are to be sci­en­ti­fi­cally inves­ti­ga­ted in the light of chan­ges in the mobi­lity sec­tor. Com­ple­men­ting and sup­por­ting the inter­di­sci­pli­nary doc­to­ral rese­arch pro­jects wit­hin the Rese­arch Trai­ning Group, con­cepts will be deve­lo­ped, ana­ly­zed, and their effects deve­lo­ped in par­ti­cu­lar from the point of view of resource eco­logy, tech­no­logy, and society. Results from the Rese­arch Trai­ning Group should pro­vide a sound basis for these exami­na­ti­ons. By clo­sing this rese­arch gap, the aim is to make con­tri­bu­ti­ons to the design of exno­va­tions for tech­ni­cal, entre­pre­neu­rial, and poli­ti­cal decisi­ons and thus make a signi­fi­cant con­tri­bu­tion to increa­sing the social accep­tance of new tech­no­lo­gies.
The rese­arch topic is desi­gned to be inter­di­sci­pli­nary, has a high poten­tial to con­nect rese­arch pro­jects that are already under­way wit­hin the Rese­arch Trai­ning Group, as well as other natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­ence pro­jects, and is inten­ded to con­tri­bute to the inte­gra­tion of the exis­ting clus­ters. The pro­ject is being car­ried out in col­la­bo­ra­tion with Aalto Uni­ver­si­tät Hel­sinki, ETH Zurich, TU Delft, and Uni­ver­si­tat Poli­tec­nica Bar­ce­lona; ther­eby, the inter­na­tio­nal sci­en­ti­fic visi­bi­lity of the Boy­sen-TU Dres­den Rese­arch Trai­ning Group should be increa­sed con­si­der­a­bly.


App­li­cants who have already obtai­ned their doc­to­rate are expec­ted to have com­pe­ti­tive final GPAs and a high level of readi­ness for inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch.
