The Faculty of Engineering at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) invites applications for a
Full Professorship (W3) for Electronics Engineering
at the Department of Electrical Engineering. The professorship is a full-time and permanent position to be filled by the earliest possible starting date.
We seek to appoint a leading expert with an internationally visible research and teaching profile. The duties of the professorship include adequately representing one or more of the following fields of electronics engineering in research and teaching as well as the management of the Institute of Electronics Engineering. Applicants should have a background in electronics engineering and scientific excellence in research in one or more of the following areas:
integrated RF, millimeter-wave, or electronic-photonic circuits and systems,
high speed analog / mixed signal circuits,
electronic circuits for high-frequency sensing and communications systems.
Willingness to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration with other departments at the University, with non-university research institutions, and with industry is expected. In teaching, participation in the programs offered by the Department and neighboring disciplines of the Faculty of Engineering is required. The professor will also be expected to teach in the existing compulsory lectures and laboratory courses of the Institute of Electronics Engineering. Leadership skills as well as relevant industrial experience or relevant knowledge of implementing research and innovation projects with industry is required.
Successful candidates show an excellent academic track record in research and teaching at the highest international standards. You have substantial research experience abroad and/or international cooperations as well as experience in managing research projects and in raising third-party funding. A university degree and an outstanding doctoral degree as well as a passion for education and pertinent teaching experience are prerequisites.
