RWTH Aachen University is Germany´s top-ranked technical university with 45,000+ students. The Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems (ICE) is headed by Prof. Rainer Leupers and Prof. Haris Gacanin. ICE performs R&D projects in different areas of embedded and cyber-physical hardware/software system design. Our main application domains are wireless communications, automotive electronics, and cyber-security.
ICE maintains tight cooperations with industry partners worldwide and has transferred numerous technologies to semiconductor vendors, system houses, and EDA companies. ICE receives funds from national agencies like DFG and BMBF and is also engaged in European Projects like HiPEAC, BOWI, and TETRAMAX. A line of successful spin-off companies originated from ICE, e.g. Cadis (acquired by Synopsys), Axys (acquired by ARM), LISATek (acquired by CoWare/Synopsys), Silexica (acquired by Xilinx/AMD), and MachineWare. Key industry partners include Huawei, Synopsys, and Hensoldt Cyber.
ICE is looking for excellent Ph.D. students and PostDocs which are hired and compensated as full-time researchers. Talented people interested in contributing to a leading-edge and highly international research institute are invited to submit their application at any time.
