PhD Positions

We are typically almost constantly seeking highly qualified and motivated PhD students for doing research in the department of distributed systems. 

The distributed systems department is a part of the Institute of Parallel and Distributed Systems (IPVS) at the University of Stuttgart. It offers a stimulating work environment including modern research laboratories and various national and international cooperations with partners from academia and industry.

The University of Stuttgart strives to increase the number of females in science and, therefore, encourages women to apply. Severely handicapped applicants will be preferred over other applicants in case of equal qualifications.



The requirements for a PhD position are an excellent scientific degree (Diploma or Master) in computer science or a closely related area, very good knowledge of distributed systems or computer networks, and very good English language skills.


Please send your applications including the usual documents (cover letter, CV, copies of degree certificates and employment certificates if applicable) to the address below.
