For students:

We offer interesting student jobs in different categories (see below) ranging from short to long periods. For a complete list of latest jobs, please visit our wiki. For questions please contact Tobias Koopmann


We run our own Kubernetes Cluster in order to run all our applications and research. In this area, we can offer a lot of tasks for enthusiastic students. 

Organisational & Teaching

We offer different organisational and/or teaching tasks, starting for example with administering our web appearance to several teaching tasks regarding out lectures. 


Since we are a computer science chair, most of our student tasks are programming-related. They distinguish in development tasks (e.g. website development) or research tasks (e.g. implementing neural network baselines for our current research).  

For Phd students:

Currently we offer no open Phd student jobs.
