Junior Professorship / Assistant Professorship (W1 with tenure-track to W2) for Information Systems with a special focus on Smart Data
Funded by the Tenure Track Program of the German Federal Government and the Federal States (WISNA), the Faculty 4: Computer Science at the Campus Koblenz invites applications for
Junior Professorship (W1/Assistant Professor) for Information Systems with a special focus on Smart Data
with tenure-track to W2.
The position at the Institute for IS Research is to be filled by 01.09./01.10.2020.
The Junior Professorship is offered in the field of Information Systems (Wirtschaftsinformatik) and is specifically focused in the field of data science and the methods, processes, algorithms and systems for the extraction of patterns, insights and knowledge from both structured and unstructured data.
Suitable candidates will hold a PhD in the field of Applied Computer Science or Information Systems and have a good understanding of informatics (data analysis methods and algorithms) as well as socio-technical systems in organisations. They will have experience in research and teaching relating to the analysis of data in an enterprise context (ERP/PPS/CSCW systems), in "things" (machines, sensors, devices) or from the open Internet. The Junior Professorship should be involved with, and will eventually lead, the existing Enterprise of Things Laboratory.
During the first phase of employment, the teaching load is 4 hours per semester.
A post-graduate university, pedagogical competence, as well as special aptitude for scientific work are prerequisites. The latter is typically demonstrated by the outstanding quality of the candidate's doctorate. Successful candidates are expected to have published in internationally ranked publications and should also have experience in managing research projects and raising third-party funding.
After their doctorate, applicants should have acquired academic experience at a different university; at the least, they need to have two years of academic experience at an institution other than the University of Koblenz-Landau.
As stipulated by the Hochschulgesetz (Rhineland-Palatinate Higher Education Act), terms of academic employment before or after receiving the doctorate should not add up to more than six years (excluding maternal and parental leave). § 2 Abs. 3 Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz (Academic Short-Term Labor Contract Act) applies accordingly.
This tenure-track Professorship is funded through the WISNA-program and therefore addresses early career researchers. Positions can only be filled with candidates meeting the criteria stipulated in the WISNA-program.
Junior Professors are hired as temporary public servants for an initial period of three years. Upon successful evaluation, the appointment will be extended for another three years.
A tenure-evaluation will be conducted during the second phase of employment. Upon positive evaluation, Junior Professors will be promoted to a permanent W2-professorship if the legal requirements of the Hochschulgesetz (Rhineland-Palatinate Higher Education Act; in particular § 50 Abs. 5 S. 3) and the general public service requirements are fulfilled.
The state of Rhineland-Palatinate and the University of Koblenz-Landau are committed to a policy of intense personal mentoring for students and therefore expect a strong presence of teaching staff at the university.
The university is committed to equal employment opportunities and strongly encourages women to
apply for the position. Female applicants are hired preferentially given equal qualification and aptitude
for the position as long as underrepresentation persists. Preferential treatment is not given in
cases where serious reasons outweigh equal opportunity considerations.
Applicants with disabilities will be considered preferentially as long as they are equally qualified.
Please submit your complete application documents (academic curriculum vitae, certificates and
degrees, etc.) to Personalreferat der Universität Koblenz-Landau, Präsidialamt, Rhabanusstr.
3, 55118 Mainz no later than 07 February 2020 stating the reference number 141-2019. Applications
via email are not encouraged.
