Associate Professor(s) or DTU Tenure-Track Assistant Professor(s) in Cyber-Physical Systems and Computing Continuum

Published 2024-04-02

Are you looking to grow your career in Cyber-Physical Systems and the Computing Continuum? 

Join the Embedded Systems Engineering (ESE) research section at DTU Compute, where your expertise in dependability, performance, and sustainability will drive us towards a smarter, greener future. By joining us, you stand to gain extensive support unlocking your career potential. You'll have access to state-of-the-art facilities and expert assistance with improving your teaching, your proposal writing skills and expert feedback on grant applications. We actively facilitate building your professional networks, both within Denmark and the EU, extending our support to aid you in attracting top students to your research area.

We value intellectual freedom, offering you the autonomy to pursue research topics that truly interest you. We understand the value of balance—we ensure a reasonable teaching load, providing ample time for your research (at least 50%). The upcoming expansion of our Embedded Systems Engineering (ESE) section provides an exciting chance to contribute to the future direction of our section. We plan to hire several new faculty members within the next 5 years. The positions advertised in this job ad are on open topics related to the general areas of Cyber-Physical Systems and Computing Continuum.

Responsibilities and qualifications
This role is instrumental in attracting both funding and student talent to expand our activities. As a member of our team, you will support our teaching and contribute to our MSc program in Computer Science and Engineering, and play a key role in shaping the expanding the ESE section.

As a part of your key responsibilities, you will:

  • Publish impactful work in leading journals and conferences in your field.
  • Secure funding for your research area from both Denmark and the European Union.
  • Teach, guide, and supervise BSc and MSc student projects, as well as supervise PhD students. 
  • Design and develop novel course modules for both the BSc and MSc levels. 
  • Actively participate in creating a robust and vibrant environment within the expanding ESE section.

Open Topics: We are recruiting candidates based on excellence on an open set of topics. You have a strong track record related to an area within Cyber-Physical Systems and the Computing Continuum. We list below several examples. The list is not exhaustive, and any areas are welcome:

  • Low-Power Time-Sensitive Wireless Communication: Dependable communication protocols for low-power time-sensitive wireless networks. Strategies for mitigating cross-technology interference and harnessing battery-free operations, with an emphasis on optimizing network robustness and enhancing edge computing capabilities.
  • Innovative Wearables for Health Monitoring: Designing wearable technologies for real-time health (and sports) performance monitoring. Involves the integration of sensor fusion, low-power communication, and embedded AI to develop non-intrusive, efficient wearables capable of providing actionable insights into users’ physical and neurological health.
  • IC design and EDA: Uncovering new architectures, methodologies and techniques in IC design, focusing on performance, power efficiency, and cost reduction. Electronic Design Automation (EDA): development of automated systems for the design of microelectronic systems, including emerging more-than-Moore systems.
  • Green Computing: Reducing the environmental impact of digital technologies. Strategies for minimizing energy consumption in computing and communication, e.g., in from AI accelerators to data centers, future cellular networks, IoT devices, enhancing their energy efficiency without compromising dependability. Implementing sustainable practices and links to renewable energy sources in the design and operation of devices and networks. 
  • Key Digital Technologies for Sustainability: Advanced digital technologies, including AI, 5G, cloud, and edge computing, for sustainability and circular economy. Digital technologies play a vital role in enabling the green transition by enhancing efficiency, reducing emissions, and fostering innovation.
  • Cybersecurity of Industrial Systems and Critical Infrastructures: Enhancing the security and resilience of industrial control systems and critical infrastructures. Developing robust cybersecurity measures to protect against evolving threats and ensure the reliability of essential services.
  • Dependable Edge Computing and Real-Time Systems: Architectures and resource management mechanisms for efficient virtualization of critical operations and for data processing at the edge. Advance real-time systems and edge computing technologies through innovations in system design and operational efficiency and predictability, ensuring reliable and timely virtualization and data analysis closer to data sources.
