Full Professorship (W3) for Embedded Systems and Wearable Computing

The Faculty of Engineering of the University of Freiburg invites applications for a

Full Professorship (W3) for Embedded Systems and Wearable Computing

in the Department of Computer Science to be filled as soon as possible.

This professorship is particularly suitable as a starting positon for high qualified early career researchers.

The successful candidate shall cover the field of Embedded Systems and Wearable Computing in research and teaching and fulfil a bridging function between the Department of Computer Science, the Department of Microsystems Engineering and the Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering.

We expect competence and experience in the area of hardware and software design for embedded systems and intelligent data analysis. Expertise in the design of wearables would be desirable. These small scale embedded systems in close connection with humans – equipped with diverse energy efficient sensors and actuators – are enabled to collect and analyze data and initiate reactions. Proof of both algorithmic conceptual design and real application is required.

The ability and willingness to engage in interdisciplinary cooperation with existing professorships of the Faculty of Engineering and the integration of present competences is expected. The professorship will play a major role in the further development of the curriculum in Embedded Systems Engineering.

Prerequisites for the employment of Professors are a university degree, an outstanding dissertation and an excellent publication record. Substantial achievements and experience in academic research and teaching, at the level of a Habilitation according to the German academic system, are expected.

The University of Freiburg seeks to increase the number of female scientific faculty members and therefore strongly encourages qualified women to apply for the position. The university is committed to providing a family-friendly workplace.
