Job description:

The 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.

At the Institute for AI Safety and Security, you will be head of department. In particular, you use your extensive experience in the areas of the development and use of AI-based components/systems, to define and prioritize the scientific topics of your team with reference to the Institute’s overall goals, to initiate ambitious research and development projects and to guarantee high scientific quality. Safety and security by design are important principles that shape your own work and the scientific work within your department. In doing so, you always consider all the data-based/-centric activities in the entire life cycle of an AI-based component/system.

You cooperate with other departments within the institute for AI Safety and Security as well as with other institutes within the DLR in order to combine a high degree of scientific depth with a high level of practical relevance for your research activities. With the same objective, you will also build up a network of scientific partners and partners from the industry with whom you will initiate research and development projects. In addition, you commit yourself to fulfill your personnel management and development responsibilities as well as to support administrative processes with relevance for your activities in the Institute for AI-Safety and Security as well as in the DLR.

In the future, your results will be indispensable in aviation, space travel as well as in the fields of energy and transport. By this you contribute to the safety-oriented introduction of AI-based solutions in ambitious application classes.

We aim to further strengthen your scientific profile in cooperation with a scientific university.

This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. With more than 42,000 employees and an annual budget of over € 5 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany's largest scientific organisation.
