The research group on Computer Engineering (, as a part of the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering ( at ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, has an opening for a post-doctoral fellow. The Computer Engineering and Networks Laboratory offers a creative international environment, a possibility to conduct highly competitive research on a global scale and involvement in teaching.
Post-doctoral Fellow in Embedded Information Processing
The position is devoted to scientific research in the area of embedded information processing, in particular for applications in mobile systems, internet of things, cyberphysical systems or sensor networks. The research is driven by our installations at several field sites in high alpine regions (permafrost research and early warning) as well as air pollution monitoring, but also involves diverse applications on a much smaller scale. Our current research focus relates to fundamental challenges like highly dependable wireless protocols, embedded machine learning and edge computing, and low energy data processing and decision-making.

The responsibilities of the position include successful research in the emerging field of embedded information processing. In addition, active participation in research projects and leading a group of highly motivated Ph.D. students is expected.
We are looking for candidates with a Ph.D. degree in a field that is closely related to embedded systems. You should have a record of accomplishment in conducting original highly competitive scientific research and publishing your results in top conferences and scientific journals. Maturity, self-motivation and the ability to work both independently and as a team player are expected. You should have interest in interdisciplinary collaboration. German language skills are not required, English is mandatory.
We look forward to receiving your online application including a statement of interest, CV, the names of two references, copies of degree certificates and the associated grades via the following link: Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
