Computer Scientist - Data management and data security (f/m/x) at Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V. (Sankt Augustin, Deutschland)

Welcome to DLR!

Our Institute for AI Safety and Security in St. Augustin wishes to employ a Computer Scientist, Mathematician, Physicist or similar (f/m/x) for Data management and data security.

Your mission:

The DLR-Institute for AI Safety and Security provides research and development services in the field of AI-related methods, processes, algorithms and execution environments. The focus is on ensuring safety and security for AI-based solutions in ambitious application classes. “Safety and security by design” is a central aspect in this context, since it directly supports future requirements of safety-critical applications that are based on AI or integrate AI-based components.

Main Research Areas of the Institute for AI Safety and Security are:

  • development processes and methods for safety-critical AI applications
  • robust and reliable approaches to safeguard AI methods and algorithms
  • safety and security in the context of AI-based applications
  • management and use of sensitive data
  • execution environments for AI-based applications
  • innovative computation methods

In the Institute’s focus area of Safety-Critical Data, you will design adequate solutions for the management of data and information in the context of AI-based applications. Your results can be used as a foundation for training and validation procedures as well as in the context of the entire life cycle of AI-based systems and, particularly, their practical application. Your concepts and solutions take a wide range of security-oriented mechanisms into account and follow the "security-by-design”-idea. To achieve this, you integrate security-oriented concepts on different levels - e.g. architecture and operational aspects up to the use of such AI methods that can be applied together which encryption methods in an integrated manner. Your results and findings are essential for future applications in aviation, space as well as in the fields of energy and transport. You will closely work together with experts from other branches of the Institute for AI Safety and Security as well as the DLR to ensure a high level of quality and practical relevance for your findings and results.

By this you contribute to the safety-oriented introduction of AI-based solutions in ambitious application classes.

The opportunity to work on a PhD thesis can be offered, when the suitable qualification is given.

Your qualifications:

  • degree in computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering or comparable disciplines from a scientific university
  • competencies in the field of databases and -management
  • competencies in different areas of security
  • competencies in the field AI
  • proficiency in English, both spoken and written
  • competencies for structuring complex scientific work areas is advantageous
  • experience in the context of scientific projects is desired
  • experience in the use of simulation tools and the implementation of software solutions is a plus

Your benefits:

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x). Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
