Professorship W2– ”Technical Computer Science with Focus on Sensor Technology“ (all genders welcome)

Institution: Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science
Publication: 12.03.2020
application deadline: 09.04.2020

Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Göttingen University Medical Center and HAWK University of applied sciences and art were conjointly granted additional professorships by the Ministry for Science and Culture of Lower Saxony within the programme “Digitalisierungsprofessuren für Niedersachsen“.
At the centre of this strategic focus is the newly founded Campus Institute Data Science (CIDAS). CIDAS is a central scientific unit of Göttingen University and part of the Göttingen Campus. CIDAS brings together methodological expertise and discipline-specific applications of Data Science as well as research on the social and cultural aspects of digitization.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Georg-August-University of Göttingen in-vites applications for the position of a

professorship W2– ”Technical Computer Science with Focus on Sensor Technology“ (all genders welcome)

at the Institute of Computer Science.

The professorship acts as a bridge between the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science and the Faculty of Physics as well as the CIDAS in the research area “sensor and measuring techniques”, and the HAWK University of Applied Sciences and Art. Besides cooperating with colleagues at the Göttingen Campus, the professor is expected to cooperate closely with local and regional industry companies.

The research topics of the professorship at the Institute of Computer Science shall be in the areas of sensor technology and technologies for the automated processing of sensor data, e.g. from modern semiconductor sensors. Relevant topics are, for example, digital technology (FPGAs etc.) for low-level implementations of (machine learning) algorithms, hardware/software codesign for embedded sensor systems, or computer and system architectures for the processing of sensor data.

The University of Göttingen aims to complement and extend the teaching (in the Bachelor’s and Mas-ter’s programmes) between the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science and the Faculty of Physics as well as the HAWK. The appointed professor shall develop and offer new courses in tech-nical computer science, if applicable also in the compulsory area of the study programmes, such as real-time systems, sensor integration or embedded systems. On the basis of these courses the pos-sibility of a concentration in “Technical Computer Science“ in the Bachelor and Master programme “Applied Computer Science” will be established. Göttingen University is committed to research orient-ed teaching.

Applications including CV, publications list and details of teaching and research including funded research projects should be submitted by April 9th 2020 online via the application portal: https://lotus2. gwdg.de/uni/umin/w2_technische_informatik_2020.nsf/application.
