The successful candidates will be expected to participate in teaching on the new consecutive Bachelor’s / Master’s degree programme in Artificial Intelligence and to be involved in setting up this new degree programme. The professors will also be expected to contribute to existing degree programmes such as Medical Engineering, Medical Process Management, and Data Science.

Successful candidates show an excellent academic track record in research and teaching at the highest international standards.

A university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as a passion for education and pertinent teaching experience are prerequisites. Candidates who are able and willing to teach in both English and German are desired. The position also requires additional postdoctoral qualifications. These should be in the form of a habilitation (postdoctoral thesis) or equivalent academic qualifications. You may also have acquired these necessary qualifications in a non-university context or through a junior faculty position (for example as W 1 Professor or Assistant Professor).
