Full Time (18 SWS)
Application Deadline:


A professorship at our vibrant and rapidly growing European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) offers you the opportunity to train young engineers and to promote innovative research. In order to provide our students with a practice-oriented education, your tasks will not only include teaching, but also the further development of our campus, and the development and establishment of new degree programmes and laboratories.

Additionally, maintaining the practical relevance through industrial cooperation is expressly desired, as is the acquisition of third-party funding via existing or new research projects. Active participation in the academic self-administration and the university committees is a prerequisite.


We are looking for a dedicated, academically renowned personality who will advance the reputation of our site at the ECRI in Pfarrkirchen. Your core expertise lies on civil and construction engineering with a special focus on digital
construction management, in particular on integral and cross-process BIM applications from planning to execution.
Knowledge and experience in the cross-trade handling of fitout/façade projects is equally desirable.

Due to the international orientation of our campus, English is the language of instruction for the majority of our
courses. Consequently, candidates are expected to be able and willing to teach the basic faculty subjects and to
deliver selected courses in both English and German.


  • Completed university education
  • Exceptional research skills, usually demonstrated by a docto-ral qualification
  • Pedagogical aptitude
  • Outstanding accomplishments in the development or im-plementation of research throughout at least five years professional experience. This must have been acquired after the completion of academic studies with at least three of the five years outside the higher education sector. In some cases, proof of non-academic professional work may be acceptable when a significant part of this work involved the co-operation between the higher education sector and a non-academic body over a minimum period of five years.
  • For candidates holding foreign university degrees it is mandatory to submit a certificate evaluation from the Central Office for Foreign Education (Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen, ZAB) in the course of the recruitment procedure for final evaluation of the recruitment requirements (


The Deggendorf Institute of Technology is one of the most dynamic and ambitious universities of applied sciences
in Southern Germany renowned for excellence in research. R&D projects are always rooted in real-life cases, as research staff collabo-rate with regional and international companies from the private sector to develop innovative solutions for immediate appli-cation, mainly funded by national government and EU grants. For example, between June and November 2021, 60 applications for research funds were approved by the local government, supplying our professors and scientists with the financial backing to work on R&D projects. To further support these projects, professors are granted teaching-free semesters to focus on research work.

Our own facilities provide an ideal environment for applied research and teaching: 3 teaching campuses in Deggendorf, Cham and Pfarrkirchen plus 13 innovation and technology campuses equipped with the best facilities to specialise in a particular field (as depicted) are dotted in a network around the region. Research projects are generally catagorised into four main areas: Digitalisation, Sustainability, Intelligent Mobility and Health Sciences.
