Within the Cluster of Excellence ‘Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden’ (cfAED)
10 positions of Research Group Leaders (TV-L)

are available from November 2012 or as early as possible thereafter (mutually agreed entry date). This is a full-time fixed term position for 5 years initially, funded by cfAED (until October 2017). The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). After a successful review of the cluster and a personnel evaluation, the post may become permanent.

About cfAED
cfAED addresses the advancement of electronic information processing systems through exploring new technologies which overcome the limits of today's predominant CMOS technology. To achieve the cluster’s visions and goals and to actively support the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, nine ‘Research Paths’ are being explored by interacting teams, looking for solutions and new approaches:
A: Silicon Nanowire Path   |  B:  Carbon Path   |   C: Organic/Polymer Path  |  D: Biomolecular-Assembled Circuits |  E: Chemical Information Processing Path |  F: Orchestration Path  |  G: Resilience Path   |  H:Collaborative Research Center HAEC `Highly Adaptive Energy-Efficient Computing` |  I: Biological Systems Path
cfAED integrates discovery-driven natural sciences and innovation-driven engineering, comprising research from materials to large-scale heterogeneous information processing systems. cfAED is a cluster of excellence within the German Excellence Initiative. It brings together 200-400 researchers mainly from TU Dresden, as well as TU Chemnitz, the Leibniz Institutes IPF and IFW, the Max Planck Institutes CBG and PKS, the Fraunhofer Institutes IZFP and ENAS, and Helmholtz Center Dresden-Rossendorf from the areas of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics.
It is our intention to strengthen the following areas by the appointment of the open positions:

Reconfigurable Nanowire Electronics
Nanowire Biosensor Devices
Modeling and Design of Carbon-Based Transistors
Carbon-Based Circuit Technology
DNA Chemistry
Chemical Information Processing Systems
Heterogeneous System-Software Verification
Microkernel-Based Systems Architecture for Heterogeneous Systems
Orchestration of Resilience Mechanisms
Bio-Inspired Information Processing

Position and Requirements
All posts offer highly challenging research topics, an inspiring scientific environment as well as the opportunity of systematic and fostered career development.
We are seeking to support and enhance the academic excellence of cfAED by the appointment of distinguished researchers and rising stars in the scientific community who are able and willing to contribute to cfAED’s targeted world-class reputation.  The successful candidate will be required to conduct research that meets the highest standards of excellence.

Announcement – further vacancies
Additionally the “Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden” plans to appoint up to 5 new Tenured Professorships and cfAED Chairs (W2/W3) in the areas of Organic Devices, Organic Materials, Processor Design, Compiler Construction and Adaptive Networks. These Strategic Professors will strengthen cfAED’s research areas and, thus, increase the probability of achieving research breakthroughs. These positions will tackle the research challenges of cfAED in innovative and interdisciplinary ways to enhance cfAED’s research excellence.  In addition, these professorships will advance cfAED’s strategic development by actively building new relationships within DRESDEN-concept (www.dresden-concept.de) and other external partners.
A variety of PhD positions will also become available in due course to underpin the cluster’s research program. However, we encourage open applications at any time to recruiting.cfaed@tu-dresden.de. Please refer to the cfAED website for detailed information on the cfAED research objectives.
