Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) like Blockchain have opened a new paradigm of decentralized applications with different governance models, execution and control structure, and architecture challenges that need to be handled meticulously to leverage the advantages. Leveraging blockchain to support concepts like DIDs, VCs and analytics have long been discussed as the next step for blockchain frameworks and applications. Even though DIDs in particular and DLTs in general have shown promise and could have advantages, this becomes even more challenging when applying these concepts in enterprise and industrial IoT use cases and environments. Identifying use cases and then applying these technologies requires expertise, investment of time and money, and in many cases a diversion from the current established business models of the industry.

The goal is to improve this situation by researching ways for identifying use cases and efficient usage of DIDs, Blockchain / DLTs.

· You analyze industrial application scenarios for DIDs and DLTs

· You actively identify key challenges that DIDs and Blockchain can solve

· You identify possible "DID building blocks" based on DLTs that can be used to solve these challenges

· You realize identified building blocks using blockchain frameworks

· You evaluate the application of realized building blocks and advantages it brings for the industrial applications

We don’t need superheroes, just super minds.

· You already have a master´s degree (or comparable) in computer science, information technology or related disciplines

· You have a strong drive for achievement and a genuine desire to discover new things

· You have sound knowledge of Distributed Systems and knowledge in Blockchain and DLTs

· You bring a good understanding in Blockchain technologies like Hyperledger Fabric, Ethereum, Hyperledger Indy and Aries

· You have active interest and experience in decentralized architectures, machine learning and AI

· Ideally you have experience in object-oriented analysis, design and programming (JavaScript, TypeScript) and DevOps

· You have excellent written and verbal English skills and good knowledge of the German language
