Subject: Doctoral Positions in "Energy Informatics"
The Technische Universität München (TUM) and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation support the expansion of the Energy Informatics research group. The research group forms part of the recently created chair of Application and Middleware Systems located at TUM’s Department of Computer Science.

Energy Informatics (EI) is a new interdisciplinary research area within the computer science / information systems community that investigates information age approaches to managing energy in a sustainable way. This includes the design and evaluation of system components (algorithms, data structures, interfaces, etc.) that allow for controlling the generation, transport, and consumption of energy to reach two goals: reducing the overall energy consumption and integrating more renewable energy sources with variable output into the electricity grid. The research interests of the EI group range from modeling/simulation of sustainable energy systems to advanced optimization techniques including machine learning based methods for monitoring and controlling loads and energy storage in smart grids. We are looking for highly motivated graduate students who would like to pursue doctoral research in this area.

Requirements for candidates:

• High academic qualification, in particular a Master’s degree in computer science, information systems, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mathematics, or related fields with very good overall grades
• Interest in energy management, smart grids, renewable energy, power system control, electricity markets, green computing, etc.
• Research experience in the area of data management, distributed systems, optimization, stochastic modeling and simulation (a background in energy management and power systems is a plus)
• Excellent programming skills in at least one common purpose programming language (e.g., Java, C++, Python, etc.)
• Knowledge of databases (e.g., MySQL, PostgreSQL, HBase, etc.)
• Knowledge of scientific software tools (e.g., R, Matlab, CPLEX, Gurobi, etc.)
• Interest in contributing to undergraduate and graduate-level teaching and supervision of Bachelors’ and Masters’ theses in the above listed fields
• Very high proficiency in English (German language skills is a plus)
• Very good English writing skills
• Committed, self-motivated, self-driven, and proactive team player with good communication and interpersonal skills


• Time-limited doctoral positions
• Young and dynamic team at one of the leading universities in Germany
• Participation in research projects with international partners and industry worldwide

Application Details & Contact:

The next round of selection interviews is planned for July 2014. To participate in this round, applicants should submit a full curriculum vitae, list of publications, transcripts of B.Sc. and Master’s studies, and a short statement to by no later than July 1, 2014. Applications received after this date may be considered for future selection interviews until positions are filled.
