We are constantly searching for highly qualified Ph.D.-level researchers and PostDocs to contribute to our research and teaching. If you

  • are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. or want to extend your research after completing a Ph.D. in one of our research areas,
  • have a very good M.Sc. degree (for Ph.d.-level positions) or Ph.D. degree (for PostDocs) in Computer Science or a neighboring discipline,

we would be very happy if you could get in contact with us and submit your application. Please note that we usually don't enroll PhD students in a graduate school (like it is the norm, e.g. in the U.S.) but rather hire Phd-level researchers with regular working contracts either as teaching assistants or for funded research projects.


Internal applicants: If you already study at Ulm University and are interested in a position in our Institute, we suggest you contact us directly, for example, in one of our lectures or by making an appointment via our secretaries (in.vs(at)

External applicants: If you are an external applicant, please sent an email to vs-jobs(at) which includes the following information:

  • your resumé,
  • recent certificates and transcripts of records, and
  • a short statement describing the motivation for your application.

We will get back to you typically within one week.
