Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Elec­tri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Tech­no­logy, Deut­sche Tele­kom Chair of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Net­works

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

3 Rese­arch Asso­cia­tes (m/f/x)

(sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)

The 6G-life Rese­arch-Hub „Digi­tal trans­for­ma­tion and sover­eig­nty of future com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works“ offers, sub­ject to avai­la­bi­lity of resour­ces, three pro­ject posi­ti­ons star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble. The posi­ti­ons are initi­ally limi­ted until August 14, 2025. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz – WissZeitVG).

Working field:

We seek app­li­ca­ti­ons for three posi­ti­ons in Quan­tum Tech­no­lo­gies for the expe­ri­men­tal rea­li­za­tion of low-latency resi­li­ent 6G-quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons. Low latency will be a cri­ti­cal key per­for­mance indi­ca­tor (KPI) in future 6G com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works. Moreo­ver, the expe­ri­men­tal genera­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion of quan­tum ent­an­gle­ment at the phy­si­cal layer is cri­ti­cal for its exploi­ta­tion in future 6G com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works. The employ­ment of ent­an­gle­ment can enable effi­ci­ent and effec­tive sha­red rand­om­ness, which can be used for example in com­pres­sed sen­sing and Post-Shan­non com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons. Howe­ver, phy­si­cal para­me­ters like pro­ba­bi­lity of cor­rect ent­an­gle­ment genera­tion and fide­lity have a key role. Next, quan­tum rou­ters have not been stan­dar­di­zed yet. This both from a hard­ware and soft­ware per­spec­tive. Addi­tio­nally, it is important to inte­grate such a quan­tum rou­ting plat­form with the 6G net­works. Finally, quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­no­lo­gies have been initi­ally pro­po­sed to achieve unpre­ce­den­ted secu­rity. A well-known example is the release of various quan­tum key dis­tri­bu­tion (QKD) pro­to­cols for making infor­ma­tion-theo­re­tic secure exis­ting and upco­m­ing clas­si­cal com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons. Howe­ver, the rea­li­za­tion of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works, and their inte­gra­tion with future 6G archi­tec­ture, is going to open new chal­len­ges from secu­rity per­spec­tive and arise new secu­rity thre­ats. These may be cri­ti­cal for the future quan­tum-clas­si­cal archi­tec­ture and can even­tually decrease the achie­ve­ments obtai­ned with the con­ver­gence of quan­tum and clas­si­cal tech­no­lo­gies into a uni­que net­work. That is why, it is important to inves­ti­gate secure and resi­li­ent solu­ti­ons for future 6G-quan­tum net­works.

Posi­tion 1 will have to design and rea­lize in the expe­ri­men­tal demons­tra­tor the phy­si­cal-layer pro­to­col for ent­an­gle­ment genera­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion. Dif­fe­rent quan­tum ent­an­gle­ment sources will be con­si­de­red accord­ing to the requi­re­ments of dif­fe­rent kinds of app­li­ca­ti­ons.

Posi­tion 2 will have the design and rea­li­za­tion of the quan­tum rou­ter and quan­tum rou­ting pro­to­cols will con­si­der first the theo­re­ti­cal approach and then the sub­se­quent prac­ti­cal imple­men­ta­tion and inte­gra­tion in the test­bed. The rese­arch and design will also take into account the employ­ment of quan­tum rou­ters in future 6G metro­po­li­tan area net­works.

Posi­tion 3 will ensure the design and rea­li­za­tion of secure solu­ti­ons for ent­an­gle­ment genera­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion and for quan­tum rou­ting. The col­la­bo­ra­tion will involve the design phase and the rea­li­za­tion phase.


uni­ver­sity degree (Diploma/Mas­ter) in elec­tri­cal or elec­tro­nic engi­nee­ring, telecom­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons engi­nee­ring, com­pu­ter sci­ence, phy­sics, mathe­ma­tics, or equi­va­lent; strong pro­gramming skills are highly recom­men­ded. Know­ledge of quan­tum mecha­nics and focus on expe­ri­men­tal phy­sics can be a plus. Can­di­da­tes should be pro­fi­ci­ent in Eng­lish and have good oral and writ­ten com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.
