Furthermore the candidate should be open for interdisciplinary collaboration with other UL departments, faculties (in particular with the existing HCI group at FHSE), and centers, or external Luxembourgish research institutions.

The position at the Assistant Professor level follows Luxembourg’s tenure-track scheme according to which the initial appointment is a fixed-term contract. In case of an excellent more senior candidate, appointment at the level of Associate Professor is possible. Academic salaries are very competitive and among the highest in Europe.
