Job offers at TU Braunschweig
The doctoral program SocialCars researches new methods and applications of decentralized, cooperative traffic management that are enabled by new technological trends and developments. The interdisciplinary program is funded in the Research Training Group (RTG) program of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The program is about to start in spring 2014. We offer the following positions:
1 post-doctoral researcher for 2 years (PDF)
12 doctoral researchers for 3 years (PDF)
(for salary see TVL)
- Human factor in cooperative traffic systems (Prof. Vollrath)
- A1.1: Decision making in navigation tasks - influencing factors and ways to change them
- A1.2: Influence of situation and personality on speed choice while driving
- Efficient operations in intermodal transportation systems (Prof. Mattfeld)
- A2.1: Integration of shared mobility and other modes of transportation
- A2.2: Intermodal delivery in city-logistics
- Sustainable cooperative traffic management for urban spaces (Prof. Friedrich)
- B1.1: Cooperative Control in urban road networks
- B1.2: Emission optimal Routing in road networks
- Distributed intelligent and cooperative systems (Prof. Müller)
- B2.1: Intelligent decentralized data analysis in co-operative traffic management
- B2.2: A multi agent-based trust model for applications of Car-to-X communication
- Car-to-X communication (Prof. Fidler)
- C1.1: Geo-Routing in Urban Car-2-X Communication Networks
- C1.2: Design of Adaptive C2X Protocols for Enhanced Traffic Performance
- Dynamic maps and map services (Prof. Sester)
- C2.1: Incremental dynamic maps
- C2.2: Interpretation and prediction of behavior
SocialCars focuses on the interplay of centralized management in the sense of classical traffic control, and decentralized management in the sense of the goals of individual traffic participants. In order to comprehensively study this interplay while considering both the requirements of traffic participants and the constraints of the urban environment, we propose six fields of research, in which we investigate novel and interdisciplinary research questions. In these fields of research, we study problems related to behavioral aspects of traffic participants, societal objectives, technical and algorithmic foundations of communication, interaction, and dynamic geo-information, as well as models and methods of cooperative, (de)centralized traffic management.
Six fields of research are covered, from traffic management over dynamic geo-information systems and communication technology to modeling distributed decision-making, coordination, and cooperation. The RTG is embedded in the Niedersächsisches Forschungszentrum Fahrzeugtechnik (NFF)in Braunschweig providing an inspiring environment with a wide range of academic and industrial competences in the areas of mobility, traffic, and automotive engineering. In order to intensify research, the doctoral students will also have office space at their home institutes TU Braunschweig, TU Clausthal and Universität Hannover. SocialCars contributes to the strategic research focus Mobility and Traffic of the Niedersächsische Technische Hochschule (NTH).

PISCOPIA is a Programme co-funded by the Marie Curie actionsunder the FP7 Programme of the European Union to attract outstanding junior researchers for a period of 12 or 24 months. The main objective is to reinforce the international dimension of the University of Padova.
The Programme intends to support the most promising young researchers to implement their research project at the University of Padova and to acquire those complementary and transversal skills necessary to start their independent research career.
All the disciplines present at the University are open for fellowships.
