At the Faculty of Computer Science, Institute of Applied Computer Science, the position

Chair (W3) of Process Modelling for Networked Technical Systems

is to be filled, starting from October 2019. We seek a highly qualified person to represent the software-related modelling and implementation of processes along the life cycle of technical systems of networked sensors and actuators in research and teaching. In the context of this position, networked technical systems are considered to be systems with close interaction of hardware and software with the physical world. Teaching responsibilities will cover courses in German and English language, emphasizing applied computer science for all study tracks at the Faculty of Computer Science. Furthermore, participation in introductory courses for other faculties, and supervision of theses are expected. Research should focus on fundamental approaches and/or specific applications areas. Experiences in participating in self-administration and academic boards of the faculty and of the university are expected.

Applicants shall be designated by outstanding and international scientific achievements. Potential research areas should include, but are not limited to:

  • Foundations of systems and models, such as systems and process modelling, architecture of and communication in networked systems and their applications
  • Methods and techniques for analysis and data processing, system theory and system identification, control, machine-based learning, and semantic interoperability
  • Software engineering methods for automation of design, modelling and simulation, implementation, test, operation, diagnostics and maintenance of such systems
  • Application of such systems in the context of the Internet of Things, e.g. in process, building and factory automation and infrastructure, of wearables, of ambient assisted living, of medical engineering, as well as of transportation and logistics.

Finding her/his role in the Dresden science and technology landscape is expected, especially DRESDEN-concept institutions, including interdisciplinary collaboration with other faculties of TU Dresden, especially within the School of Engineering Sciences. Special emphasis is put on high-quality international publications, strong international contacts, both in academia and industry, as well as successful supervision of PhD students. Experience in acquiring and managing third-party funding should be demonstrated. A habilitation (German lecturing qualification) or equivalent qualifications is expected. Applicants must fulfil the employment qualification requirements of § 58 of the Act Governing Academic Freedom in Higher Education in the Free State of Saxony (Saxon Academic Freedom in Higher Education Act – SächsHSFG).
