Winter semester teaching

It may be hard to believe, but winter is coming! And with it our courses. Please look forward to

Our course “advanced methods of software engineering” (mostly continuous deployment and lean development) is invitation-only; you need to have taken ADAP and/or AMOS to participate.

Research assistant (student job)

We have a research student job available, non-programming, about qualitative research. Your task will be to analyse the use of quality assurance methods in published research. The ideal outcome is a research paper that, provided there was sufficient intellectual contribution by you, might have you as a co-author. This job is ideal for every IIS student eyeing to get a Ph.D. after their Master’s degree. The best preparation for this job is to have taken NYT (Nailing your Thesis a.k.a. Research Seminar NCC 1701) with us.

Visual designer (student job)

We have a visual designer student job available. You should be able to use a graphics tool like GIMP to create logos and the like, and you should also be able to work on websites (ideally using CSS/HTML/Javascript or at least be fluent in WordPress). We have a broad range of projects available on which you might work, probably on all of them. Number of hours per week is negotiable.

Programming student jobs

Update 2017-11-23: All student job opening have been moved to a dedicated student jobs page.

We are always looking for students who would like to work with us in any our research projects. Seriously, if you qualify, there will always be an open position for you. To learn more about our research projects, please see or just come talk to us!

Mitarbeiterstelle (Ph.D. position)

We expect to have new Ph.D. positions (Mitarbeiterstellen) available come April 2018. If you are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. and are interested in our research projects and topics, please let us know!
