Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is one of the leading research universities in Germany. As a reform-oriented campus university, it houses the full
breadth and width of expertise in the main branches of science and research under one roof. Working in an environment that promotes a dynamic exchange between
individual academic disciplines and their cultures, researchers and students alike benefit from the opportunities of interdisciplinary collaboration.
FULL PROFESSOR FOR DATA-DRIVEN SECURITY
In the context of the Cluster of Excellence CASA (Cyber-Security in the Age of Large-Scale Adversaries), the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Sciences at Ruhr-Universität Bochum invites applications for the position of a Full Professor (W3) for Data-Driven Security to start as soon as possible.
The candidate is expected to establish an excellent research program, to conduct and publish innovative research, be an effective lecturer and mentor of both undergraduate and graduate students, and participate in institutional and professional processes. We are looking for scientists with an internationally visible research profile in Computer Security, in at least one of the following subfields:
Computer security and machine learning
Security in distributed systems
Secure and dependable software systems
Privacy Enhancing Technologies.
The successful applicant is expected to cooperate with the Horst Görtz IT Security Research Department (HGI) and especially with the recently granted Cluster of Excellence CASA. The recently founded Max Planck Institute for Cybersecurity and Privacy offers additional possibilities for collaboration.
International visibility through publications and projects and above-average third-party funding are expected, as well as the willingness and ability to lead and participate in
large collaborative projects. Positive evaluation as a junior professor or equivalent academic achievement (e.g. Habilitation) or significant post-doctoral research contributions
and teaching experience are as much required as the willingness to participate in the self-governing bodies of the RUB. Furthermore, a strong commitment to academic teaching, the
readiness to participate in interdisciplinary research and the proven experience in successful acquisition of third-party funds are expected. Ruhr-Universität Bochum is an equal
opportunity employer and offers a dual career program (see https://www.dcnruhr.de/en for details).
Complete applications including CV, copies of academic certificates, list of publications, list of self-raised third-party funds, teaching record,
and a statement of research interests should be sent by email to the Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology,
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Musch, 44780 Bochum, Germany, E-Mail: Bewerbungemail@example.com. not later than 23rd April 2020.
