Professorship (W2) of Robot Mechanics - Robot Design Engineering
Technische Hochschule Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm
Innovation needs diversity
Creating innovation together: at the Technische Hochschule Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm, or Nuremberg Tech for short, a great variety of people are working together to meet future challenges. We view diversity as an opportunity that we want to develop constructively by first recognizing it and then investing in its potential. Join us at Nuremberg Tech, make a contribution to new projects and perspectives that will make an impact on society through innovation.
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Precision Engineering, Information Technology (efi) is seeking to appoint a
Professor of Robot Mechanics – Robot Design Engineering
at pay grade W 2, as of October 1, 2021.
Qualifications / Responsibilities
Interdisciplinary training in engineering and applied research – that is what the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Precision Engineering, Information Technology, or efi for short, stands for. To expand teaching capacities, we are seeking a motivated individual with established theoretical and extensive practical experience
in the field of industrial and/or mobile robotics / actuator technology
and advanced knowledge in design engineering and technical mechanics.
Background in micro or precision engineering is a plus.
The professor will cover subjects in the field of the development of robot mechanic components at basic levels and in advanced modules of various degree programs. Besides presenting theoretical foundations, practical realization of robotic applications is a focus of the education. The applicant should be open to interdisciplinary cooperation with colleagues from all faculties and in third-party funded projects. Furthermore, willingness to engage in application-oriented research and development work is expressly desired.
It is expected that courses offered by the successful candidate
can be conducted in both German and English and
that they will be willing to provide foundations courses in fields related to technical mechanics and design engineering.
You will also engage with the academic self-administration of the Faculty.
A completed university degree is required. Research potential is measured by the quality of the achieved research degree (doctorate) or via alternative evidence (such as an official certification that the candidate has achieved a level commensurate to a doctorate). Appropriate pedagogical skills and special accomplishments in the application or development of academic insight and methods in professional practice must be demonstrated. Candidates must have a minimum of five years professional experience subsequent to the completion of a university degree, of which at least three years must have been spent outside an academic setting. In special cases the proof of non-university professional experience can be provided by verifying that a significant part of employment occurred in cooperation between the university and non-university professional practice over a period of at least five years.
Employment may either be under civil service law or private law according to the applicable regulations and requirements.
Disabled applicants will receive priority selection in cases where these candidates have equivalent qualifications, abilities, and skills compared to others.
The Nuremberg Institute of Technology is trying to significantly raise the proportion of women in academic teaching and therefore encourages suitably qualified female candidates to apply. Similar to disabled applicants and according to current legislation, women will be given priority in placement. The Nuremberg Institute of Technology is a certified “family-friendly workplace”.
Then take the next step and join us to reach your career goals. We look forward to receiving your application until July 15, 2021. Please apply online using our application portal.
