Software Engineering Lecturer with focus on Databases

Town/City: Berlin

Position type: Full time

Reference number: 2021/07/08/8835


As a Software Engineering Lecturer with focus on Databases, you will work closely with the Software Engineering team to guide students, develop the software engineering curriculum, and contribute to strategic development of the department and overall institution. Your main responsibility is contributing to the learning experience of students as it pertains to software engineering in general and databases.

The software engineering topics taught will change over time and can be designed around your profile to accommodate your prior experience. Possible topics include introduction to the software development process and basic programming, distributed and parallel computing, IT security, embedded computing, operating systems, control engineering, or collaboration in software engineering teams. Additionally, game development is a topic of increasing interest amongst the student body; ideally you would be able to teach and consult on related topics as well.

About You

  • You have general knowledge and practical experience with software engineering.
  • You have practical experience with databases.
  • Practical experience with game development is desirable but not a must-have.
  • You have teaching experience.
  • You are comfortable with communicating and teaching in English.
  • You have the ability to be flexible and adjust in an environment of change.
  • International experience is an asset.
  • German language skills are desirable but not a must-have.

We are looking for professors and teaching staff who don’t think of themselves as the main resource for valuable knowledge that needs to be transferred to the students by PowerPoint-driven lectures. Instead, we want them to provide challenges that trigger the intrinsic learning impulses of their students.

General information

This position is available for an immediate start. The position will be located at the CODE campus in Berlin, Germany.
