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 scho­l­ar­ship

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 scho­l­ar­ship
star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble for a period of 2 years with the pos­si­bi­lity of an exten­sion for fur­ther 2 years. The remu­ne­ra­tion is based on the DFG Per­son­nel Rates 2020.
The inter­di­sci­pli­nary Boy­sen-TU Dres­den-Rese­arch Trai­ning Group Mobi­lity in Tran­si­tion - Chal­len­ges and solu­ti­ons for tech­no­logy, envi­ron­ment and society con­sists of four clus­ters, into which this post­doc pro­ject should be inte­gra­ted.

Work­ing field:

Post­doc pro­ject on Mobi­lity in Tran­si­tion –
with a trans­di­sci­pli­nary per­spec­tive and an other­wise Open Topic
As part of the adver­ti­sed posi­tion, a ques­tion is to be dealt with sci­en­ti­fi­cally that approa­ches the change in mobi­lity from a trans­di­sci­pli­nary per­spec­tive. The topic is thus far unde­fi­ned and should be pro­po­sed in con­crete terms and writ­ten form by the app­li­cant. It should meet the fol­lo­wing cri­te­ria:

  • Prac­ti­cally rele­vant aspects of chan­ges in the mobi­lity sec­tor should be sci­en­ti­fi­cally exami­ned.
  • A rele­vant rese­arch gap should be clo­sed.
  • Per­spec­tives from STEM sub­jects (sci­ence, tech­no­logy, engi­nee­ring, and mathe­ma­tics) and huma­nities and social sci­en­ces should be con­nec­ted.
  • The pro­ject is inten­ded to sup­port the doc­to­ral pro­jects being rese­ar­ched in the Rese­arch Trai­ning Group, which are from dif­fe­rent disci­pli­nes.
  • The pro­ject should con­tri­bute to the inte­gra­tion of the four clus­ters of the Boy­sen-TU Dres­den Rese­arch Trai­ning Group.
  • It should eit­her deal with a pro­blem from a trans­di­sci­pli­nary per­spec­tive or focus on trans­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch its­elf.
In addi­tion, the post­doc will take on tasks rela­ted to the aca­de­mic gui­d­ance of the doc­to­ral stu­dents, the super­vi­sion and pre­pa­ra­tion of inter­di­sci­pli­nary publi­ca­ti­ons, as well as inter­na­tio­na­li­sa­tion duties. The post­doc pro­ject will expand inter­na­tio­nal con­tacts with the Aalto Uni­ver­sity of Hel­sinki, the ETH Zurich, the TU Delft, and the Uni­ver­si­tat Poli­tec­nica Bar­ce­lona and signi­fi­cantly increase the inter­na­tio­nal sci­en­ti­fic visi­bi­lity of the rese­arch group.


App­li­cants, who have already recei­ved their doc­to­rate, are expec­ted to have com­pe­ti­tive final GPAs and a high level of wil­ling­ness to under­take inter­di­sci­pli­nary work and rese­arch. Com­mon rooms will be made avail­able. Accep­t­ing the scho­l­ar­ship obli­ges your pre­sence in the rese­arch group’s offices.
