Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH)Hamburg
With the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg‘s ambition to further develop the location into a knowledge metropolis, the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) is expanding its expertise in research and teaching. With its growth concept the TUHH aims to enhance its position as a leading interdisciplinary, innovative, and international university of technology in Germany. It aspires to consolidate and extend the characteristic that has constantly been its hallmark since its foundation: that of being a model university, an initiator and an innovation driver.
The TUHH is a modern, dynamic, internationally aligned university with high performance and quality standards. The main focus of research, teaching and technology transfer is to develop technology for people.
High-ranking research, especially in the three competence areas of Green Technologies, Life Science Technologies and Aviation and Maritime Systems, characterize the TUHH.
Along with engineering competences the TUHH links interdisciplinary research with digitization and development of new materials.
In teaching we are planning to develop new, internationally focused courses of study for engineering scientists of tomorrow. In the use of modern teaching and learning methods the TUHH continues to aspire to a leading position in high-quality teaching. Last not least, targeted promotion of technology transfer and company startups is another distinctive feature of the TUHH.
Implementation of the TUHH's growth concept is combined with a strategy that includes closer networking with scientific institutions in the Hamburg metropolitan region, the development of new, cross-disciplinary research associations, maximum excellence in basic research and strong ties with industrial partners in application-oriented research.
W 3 Professorship (with a management function)
Process Imaging Technology
(Reference No.: P-18-02)
We are looking for applicants who are strongly committed to research and teaching and will establish the field of process imaging technology at TUHH. The professorship should match the profile of process engineering at TUHH and build a bridge between fundamental imaging research (tomography, NMR, MRI) and technical or engineering applications. In addition, the professorship is intended to link the Faculty of Chemistry at University of Hamburg with the Faculty of Process Engineering at TUHH. The professorship is integrated into the growth concept of TUHH and should contribute to the establishment of coordinated research projects. The successful candidate will have a distinguished scholarly record in one or more of the following subareas with focus on interdisciplinary work, in particular on application of tomographic methods to chemical and biochemical engineering:
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Imaging and automated image analysis
These methods are to be applied in biological and chemical systems in one or more of the following fields of process engineering:
The professorship will be embedded in the framework of a fundamental research program between TUHH, University of Hamburg, Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht and DESY. Access to several large-scale imaging devices within the network will be provided.
We seek a faculty member with a strong commitment to teaching at bachelor and master level both in German and in English. Teaching duties include practical training of students in the field of measurement technologies.
Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) especially supports application of women.
Handicapped persons take precedence over legally non-privileged applicants of equal qualification, aptitude and professional achievement.
TUHH supports especially qualification and accomplishments in academic teaching. The legal framework of the Federal State of Germany is relevant (in Hamburg §15 of the university act of Hamburg). Applicants who have reached the age of 50 can no longer count on being accepted as civil servants.
