The Institute of Computer Engineering (ZITI) at Heidelberg University, Germany, invites applications for a newly created

W3-Professorship in Medical Technology.

The core competencies of the ZITI lie in the development and operation of specialized computer hardware and hardware-associated soft- and firmware for the solution of challenging computer problems and for data acquisition, in the development of application specific microchips (analogue and digital) for digital communication and sensors, as well as in the areas of automation, robotics and biomechanics.

The main focus of research of this new professorship should lie in the development of new concepts for and in the construction of medical instruments, to which the core competencies of ZITI can contribute. For their practical application and development, the selected candidate should establish cooperation with both clinical faculties of the University and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), where already many developments and applications of new technologies have occurred (e.g. PET/MRT, 7T, radiotherapy, proton and ion therapy, robotics for surgery, prosthesis).

The professorship will be in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching within the master programme „Computer Engineering“ as well as to the Bachelor and Master programmes in physics, in particular for the specialization “Medical Physics”.

Prerequisites for application are a university degree and (in accordance with Article 47, paragraph 2 of the Higher Education Law of the State of Baden-Württemberg) a Habilitation, a successfully evaluated junior professorship or equivalent qualification. The University of Heidelberg 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.

Qualified candidates are invited to submit their application including CV, a list of publications, a list with teaching experience and a research plan in electronic form (pdf) until 16.10.2017 to the Dean of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Im Neuenheimer Feld 226, D-69120 Heidelberg (This email address is being protected from spambots.
