process. We offer English language academic courses from a large range of topics in
software and systems engineering and formal methods in which we introduce into the theoretical
and methodological foundations as well as practical industrial applications. Your tasks
include support of the work of the chair in research and teaching, thereby also shaping our

can be hired as post-doctoral fellows in the same pay scale.
