Research carried out at Ulm University has a pronounced orientation toward medicine, profiting from intensive and fruitful collaboration between medical colleagues and those working in scientific, technological and engineering disciplines. The new professorship for biomedical engineering is planned to strengthen this interdisciplinary focus.


We look to hire a scientist with engineering background working at the forefront of applications development for heterogeneous biomedical systems; sensor development and sensor signal processing for biomedical applications; and/or hardware-software co-design of biomedical systems. Extension of these topics is conceivable to biomedical microsystems, lab-on-a-chip, cell-chip technology, molecular-biological analysis systems, tissue diagnostics or medical devices for theranostic applications.


We seek an outstanding researcher with demonstrated scientific expertise in a number of the aforementioned areas. Professional experience in industry or at an applications-oriented research institute is desirable.


The successful candidate will manifest a passion for teaching as well as a willingness to shoulder tasks of academic self-governance, including the establishment of a new study program in biomedical engineering.
