  • Application software and AI-based analysis for medical sensor data
  • Telemedical equipment and system technology for domestic and clinical use
  • Data security and encryption technologies for IoT in biomedical engineering
  • Real-time capable monitoring of clinical workflows for quality assurance and risk assessment.

The chair will be involved in basic and advanced courses in the future interdisciplinary study program "Biomedical Engineering" as well as in minor subject courses for other faculties. You will assume teaching obligations in basic lectures on medical technology, for example "Digital Medical Technology", "Approval Procedures", "Telemedicine" and "Biosignal Processing". The lectures are to be held in German. Your active participation in academic self-administration is a prerequisite and we expect your willingness to engage in collegial interdisciplinary cooperation.
