COMSYS is hiring PhD students!

Rolling applications until mid/end September 2024, flexible start within the next 12 months


We currently have open positions for PhD students available that are to be filled within the next 12 months. 
In particular, we are looking for young talents who are dedicated and passionate about their interests and would like to work in and contribute to our collaborative team atmosphere.
The available positions are funded by different projects spanning our entire research portfolio ranging from Industry 4.0 and large-scale Internet measurements to developing security and privacy mechanisms for health data or improving the reliability of critical infrastructure; you can find a general overview of our research here and more details by looking through the individual profiles of our staff. We are accepting applications on a rolling basis until mid/end September 2024 and will give you a timely notification.
Please submit your meaningful application, at least consisting of a short CV, a transcript of records, and a motivation letter that describes your research interests and your motivation to pursue your PhD with us, as pdf to phd[[at]]comsys.rwth-aachen.de.

As a PhD student at COMSYS, you will join a group of motivated colleagues and students and commence a journey that is designed to challenge you and stimulate personal growth. This starts with the definition of your PhD thesis topic: while we will provide you with some initial ideas, the topic is not fixed from the start. Instead, we encourage you to discover which areas most interest you in the first months of your employment so that you can then gradually reshape and define your topic yourself. Through this process, that focuses on developing strong, independent personalities, you will have plenty of opportunities to develop and improve key professional and personal skills. In addition to doing your own research, you will develop leadership skills by supervising thesis students and guiding student helpers, gather valuable project and/or teaching experience, and also expand your professional network, e.g., when presenting your work on international conferences.

To support you on this journey, we encourage our PhD students to participate in training courses, e.g., offered by the RWTH. Additionally, life at COMSYS is not all about work. Our yearly retreats and chair excursions as well as the legendary COMSYS BBQs provide ample opportunity for personal engagements and we regularly combine our conference travel with private vacations to make the most of our journeys.

You can find more information on our general PhD process on our website. You are also invited to drop by your favorite COMYS PhD student or to write us an email to phd[[at]]comsys.rwth-aachen.de. Additionally, we will be offering an informal COMSYS PhD CafĂ© on 9th July 2024 at 16:00 in the COMSYS seminar room where you can get in touch with us directly.
