Professorship (W2) in Geoinformatics for sustainable development
Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (WWU)
The Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) at the University of Muenster has
an opening for a
Professorship (W2) in
Geoinformatics for sustainable development
starting at the earliest possible date.
Who are we looking for?
Applicants should have an outstanding PhD in Geoinformatics or a
related field. They should have a proven track record (peer reviewed
publications, international network, successful research funding
acquisitions) in at least one innovative area in geoinformatics (GI)
and in at least one of the many application areas of sustainable
development research. Of particular interest are the following areas
Artificial Intelligence / Deep Learning / Data Mining in GI
Sensor Networks / Internet-of-Things in GI
Big Data in GI
Spatial/spatiotemporal Network Modelling / Network Planning in GI
The applicant's track record should complement existing research
areas at the University of Muenster, in particular at the Faculty of
Geosciences and at ifgi.
Applicants will be required to contribute towards teaching (i.e. courses
related to Geoinformatics that are part of several degree programs at
the department). The teaching load associated with the advertised
post is nine hours per week during the teaching terms. Courses are
taught in English or in German. In addition, the successful applicant
will supervise undergraduate and graduate students (including PhD
students) and contribute to the self-administration of the institute

possibilities. We also welcome applications from candidates with
severe disabilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications
will be preferentially considered.

The Institute for Geoinformatics is one of the oldest and largest of
its kind in Europe. Research and teaching cover a broad range of
topics in Geoinformatics. Core research areas at ifgi currently include:
analysis and modelling of spatiotemporal processes, interaction with
spatiotemporal information, spatial cognition, geodata infrastructures,
geosimulation, UAVs, geotechnologies in education and smart cities.
The institute offers a dynamic, research intensive and very international
environment with many opportunities for collaboration throughout
the institute, the faculty and the university; the main language
of the institute is English. ifgi is also well-connected nationally and
internationally. Collaboration across groups and disciplines is explicitly
encouraged and practiced throughout the entire institute. In addition,
Münster city is not only one of the most liveable cities but it also hosts
several SMEs as well as larger companies working in areas closely
related to Geoinformatics.
