Professorship of Machine Learning

Job Description

The newly-established Faculty of Informatics and Data Science invites applications for a Professorship of Machine Learning grade W3 (chair) with the status of civil servant for life (Beamtenverhältnis auf Lebenszeit) to be appointed as soon as possible.

Research should focus on the methods and theoretical foundations of machine learning (e.g. explainable AI, uncertainty quantification, correlation and causality) or deal with applied questions in data analysis. A mixture of both areas as well as interdisciplinary cooperation with colleagues from other faculties is desired.

The successful candidate has the opportunity to shape the new faculty and contribute to the development of the new bachelor and master degree programs in informatics and data science.

Involvement in the university's academic self-governance and in teaching is a prerequisite. Teaching duties include, in particular, basic courses in machine learning.

Prerequisites for taking up the position are, alongside the general conditions from public sector employment law, a completed university degree, pedagogic suitability, particular aptitude for academic work, generally shown by a doctoral degree, and further academic performance shown via a habilitation or equivalent which may have been performed outside higher educational institutions or as part of the duties of a junior professor.

The University of Regensburg is particularly committed to reconciling family and working life (for more information, see To fulfill the equality directive and increase the number of female professors, we explicitly encourage applications from qualified women.

In case of essentially similar suitability, applicants with severe disabilities will be preferentially selected.

Applications containing the normal documents (resume, certificates, list of publications with copies of up to five papers) should be submitted, solely in digital form (PDF-format, in a single file)to the chair of the founding committee, Vicepresident Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Korber, University of Regensburg, D-93040 Regensburg, email:
