The Institute of Computer Engineering (ZITI) at Heidelberg University
invites applications for a tenured
FULL PROFESSORSHIP (W3) IN
at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. This is a W3
position for experienced scientists, however, young scientists with a
strong track-record after the doctorate are also encouraged to apply.
They will obtain a tenure-track professorship (W1) which converts into
the W3 professorship after a positive evaluation. The tenure-track professorship
lasts up to six years. The exact tenure-track regulations at
Heidelberg University are available at: http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/ tenure-track.
This professorship belongs to the core competence Innovative Computing
at ZITI. This focus comprises the development and programming of
specialized computer hardware (analogue and digital), firmware and
hardware-efficient software for the solution of demanding data acquisition
and computing problems.
With regard to the foreseeable end of Moore‘s Law, innovative approaches
are required for further performance enhancement in applications. To
accomplish this, hardware, system and network as well as software and
algorithms must interact efficiently. The professorship in Computer
Architecture is expected to collaboratively tackle these challenges within
the core competence of Innovative Computing. Therefore, we are
searching for a scientist with a proven research record in the area of
computer architecture, areas of specialization might be
digital design with a proven experience in CMOS technology
new memory technologies
Open Hardware, based for instance on RISC-V or EPI
design of interfaces, data transfer and communication with novel
Additional ties within ZITI can be established with the competence
Microelectronics or Robotics, Biomechanics & Medical Technology.
Further collaboration opportunities at Heidelberg University are offered
by the European Institute for Neuromorphic Computing (EINC), the
Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR), the Center for
Advanced Materials (CAM) and other compute-intensive applications
and simulations in the natural sciences.In teaching, contributions to the
Master program Computer Engineering as well as the Bachelor program
Applied Computer Science are expected, in particular the foundations
and advanced topics of computer architecture.
Prerequisites for the application are a university degree and a doctorate
in a related scientific field. For the direct application to the W3 position
additionally a Habilitation, a successfully evaluated junior professorship
or equivalent qualification is required (Article 47, paragraph 2 of the
Higher Education Law of the State of Baden-Württemberg). Candidates
for the tenure-track professorship (W1) should generally not have spent
more than six years of employment as a doctoral and postdoctoral researcher
(Article 51 of the Higher Education Law of the State of
Heidelberg University seeks to achieve a higher proportion of women in
areas where they have not been adequately represented so far. Women
with the required qualification are particularly encouraged to apply.
Preference will be given to disabled applicants with equal qualifications
for the position. Information on the collection of personal data in accordance
with Art. 13 DS-GVO can be found on our homepage at https://www.uni-heidelberg.de/datenschutz_personal.
Applications with the usual documents (curriculum vitae, list of publications,
research and teaching statements) should be submitted in English
exclusively electronically as a single PDF-document until 31.10.2020 addressed to:
