PROFESSORSHIP W3 IN THE FIELD OF AUTONOMOUS CYBER-PHYSICAL SYSTEMS
Ref. No. P-20-02
The School of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics seeks applications for the head of the future Institute of Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems.
The position is linked to ahoi.digital, a program of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg for strengthening Computer Science, and will begin in the summer
semester 2021. The successful candidate is expected to establish the new field of Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems at TUHH in both research and teaching.
Applicants will have an excellent track record in foundational research in this area and a strong interest in interdisciplinary work with other engineering sciences
represented at TUHH and in application domains such as robotics, mechatronics or industrial automation. TUHH particularly welcomes applications by candidates with a
background in technical aspects of Autonomous and Cyber-Physical Systems, including but not limited to:
Methods for modelling, realization and evaluation of Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems
Functional safety and robustness, reliability analysis, certification
Self-test, self-diagnosis and self-repair
Mixed-critical autonomous multi-/many-core systems
Embedded hardware architectures or modular platforms for autonomous systems
Integration of Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems with smart sensors and actuators.
As the head of the future Institute of Autonomous Systems, the successful candidate is expected to offer courses in Computer Science and related degree programs both
at the undergraduate and graduate level, and to engage in the further development of the curricula offered by TUHH.
The TUHH acknowledges exceptional and innovative teaching achievements and capabilities. Successful applicants will therefore contribute to TUHH's prominent profile of
innovative teaching methods with high quality undergraduate (B.Sc.) and graduate (M.Sc.) courses. The courses are in English and German; for non-German speakers a willingness to learn German is expected.
TUHH is an equal opportunity employer and particularly welcomes and encourages applications from women. It is certified as a family-friendly university and supports dual careers.
Applications by disabled persons with equal qualifications will be given preference.
The deadline for applications is April 20, 2020.
