Professor of Applied Computer Science

Job Description

Welcome to Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, one of the leading research universities in Saxony-Anhalt. Located in the heart of Central Germany and as one of Germany’s ‘Innovative Universities’, Anhalt University combines international-level research and teaching with excellent study and living conditions.

With more than 80 degree programs, we provide students with the freedom to develop their own personalities. Most importantly, we prepare about 8,000 German and international students for a successful career start.

The University’s Department of Computer Science and Languages in Köthen invites applications for the post of Professor of Applied Computer Science (salary group W2) which is to be filled.

The candidate will be expected to demonstrate an application-based teaching and research approach in the field of applied computer science, especially in the fields of embedded systems and mobile technologies. The successful candidate must have a substantiated record of professional experience and independent research in these fields.

Apart from managing the relevant standards for the designated areas of expertise, we expect a clear focus on the demands of today's systems, such as distributed computing, web and internet technologies, cloud/edge/fog computing, and IT security.

Furthermore, the incumbent is expected to supervise student projects, theses and contribute to the students’ foundation training as laid out in the Department’s bachelor- and master-level degree programs. Students attending the successful candidate’s classes should benefit from his/her proven practical experience.

The successful candidate needs to have a highly-developed pedagogical aptitude offering module courses which include authentic and practical applications. German and English are the languages of instruction in the Department. Furthering interdisciplinary cooperation and actively participating in collaborative academic management processes (akademische Selbstverwaltung) are expected of the candidate.

The Department provides modern technical facilities that focus on teaching and applied research. The candidate is expected to show a proactive and innovative commitment and contribute to promoting and advancing cooperation with our national and international partners.

At Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, we are convinced that particular importance should be placed on high-quality teaching, which not only conveys excellent specialist knowledge in a practice-oriented manner, but also motivates students to actively participate in their studies.

To succeed in this, it is a matter of course for us to provide our students with intensive support and academic advice. Applicants are thus expected to commit to this whether it be through communicating with prospective students, the daily routine work with students or working with the alumni of the university.

The conditions for employment are governed by Article 35 Hochschulgesetz Land Sachsen-Anhalt (HSG LSA). According to Article 17 of the Constitution of Anhalt University (Grundordnung der Hochschule Anhalt), in conjunction with Article 38 HSG LSA, any first appointment as a professor is generally probationary. The salary is paid in line with legal and budgetary conditions.

Anhalt University wishes to increase the proportion of women amongst its academic personnel and, thus, expressively encourages qualified women to apply for the post.

The requirements of SGB IX apply to severely disabled candidates with essentially the same qualifications and professional performance.

Applications containing the usual documents (CV/résumé, breakdown of scientific career including teaching and related practical activities, list of publications, certified certificates/documents – higher education entrance qualification, graduation diploma/university certificates, PhD/doctoral certificate, if applicable post-doctoral qualification/Habilitation) are to be sent within six weeks of the publication of this vacancy to:
