Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty IV – Insti­tute of Soft­ware Engin­eer­ing and The­or­et­ical Com­puter Sci­ence/Qual­ity and Usab­il­ity Lab

Research assist­ant - Salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

The major­ity of sys­tems and ser­vices, which are provided by com­puter sci­ence, elec­trical engin­eer­ing and inform­a­tion tech­no­logy, finally address the human user. As a con­sequence, it is essen­tial to under­stand the user and their inter­ac­tion beha­vior for design­ing suc­cess­ful sys­tems and ser­vices. Formal prin­ciples for the inter­face design can be based on this know­ledge, as well as demands on the tech­nical com­pon­ents under­ly­ing the sys­tem. In turn, the avail­ab­il­ity of new tech­no­lo­gies may lead to innov­at­ive inter­face design, and finally to new forms of inter­ac­tion.
The Qual­ity and Usab­il­ity Lab, a chair of Fac­ulty IV, is deal­ing with the eval­u­ation and the design of this Human-Machine-Inter­ac­tion whereat aspects of human per­cep­tion, tech­nical sys­tems as well as inter­ac­tion design are in focus.

Work­ing field:

Assist­ance in fun­da­mental research in the field of Vir­tual Real­ity and Aug­men­ted Real­ity focused on the ques­tion of Qual­ity of Exper­i­ence dur­ing the inter­ac­tion of the user with and within those envir­on­ments; tech­nical set-up of vir­tual envir­on­ments; pre­par­a­tion and deduc­tion of stud­ies with test par­ti­cipants for determ­in­a­tion of Qual­ity of Exper­i­ence and User Exper­i­ence; writ­ing of sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions; rep­res­ent­a­tion of the chair at inter­na­tion­als con­fer­ences and work­shops.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Dip­lom, Mas­ter or equi­val­ent) in Digital Media, Com­puter Engin­eer­ing, Com­puter Sci­ence, Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing, Media Engin­eer­ing or related areas; pro­found know­ledge in Human-Com­puter-Inter­ac­tion or Media Engin­eer­ing; very good Eng­lish skills (B2); interest in top­ics like Vir­tual Real­ity, mul­timodal Inter­ac­tion, sig­nal pro­cessing, Qual­ity and Usab­il­ity, Human-Machine-Inter­ac­tion.
