Internships at the "Lehrstuhl für Informatik mit Schwerpunkt Eingebettete Systeme" (Chair of Embedded Systems)

The "Lehrstuhl für Informatik mit Schwerpunkt Eingebettete Systeme" (Chair of Embedded Systems) offers a limited number of internships for international students.

We do always encourage and welcome dedicated students that are keen to closely work with us on our current research topics. We offer a competitive laboratory and working environment and cutting edge research challenges.

  • The internship, ranging from 3 to 6 months, is tightly integrated into your personal study program.

  • We can only host interns from Europe (states of the European Union), the United States or Canada.
  • You send, next to any related certificates you might want to send us, a letter of motivation to express your interests and relation to our topics and research efforts and a research statement on the potential contributions you would like to make to our work by relating your application to one currently open student thesis (all in all: max 8 pages as PDF). A photo of yourself is also included.
  • Your application additionally contains the name and title of a person (and her/his university email address) working at university that knows you personally, is informed about your application and supports it, and can give references on you.

We especially encourage applications from qualified European and international students. We take our responsibility towards gender-sensitive education seriously and especially encourage female students. Please contact Prof. Kranz for inquiries on internships.
