Published(305 days ago)
Deadline for applications(264 days ago)
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)
Smart Machine Elements
(Reference No.: P-18-05)
We are looking for a person who, starting from mechanical engineering, will with a high level of commitment in research and teaching newly establish the field of smart machine element development at the TUHH. The professorship presupposes in-depth knowledge and experience of product development, mechatronics and cyber-physical systems in order to undertake research at the module and component level into a system of novel machine elements that in addition to purely mechanical modes of action are able to generate sensor-based information and perform actor-based actions in order to enable future self-regulating machines to function autonomously.
Future-oriented research in collaboration with the main focal points of research at the TUHH is expected mainly in the areas of digitization, basic engineering, aviation and maritime systems.
People are invited to apply who are research scientists or from industry with a knowledge of engineering fundamentals and a proven research profile in one or more of the following areas:
Development of smart machine elements with sensor, actor and/or adaptronic technology
Development methodology for smart machine elements and derivative systems with mechanics, electronics and information technology
Application areas to include smart products such as digital aviation and maritime systems or smart tools and machines.
The professorship‘s remit includes engineering teaching on the basic subject of engineering design, machine elements and collaborating in German and English on mechanical engineering and mechatronics courses for bachelor‘s and master's students.
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.
For further information call the chancellor of TUHH, Mr. Scheunert, tel. +49 (0)40 42878-3002.
Please send your application with all relevant documents and by above-mentioned reference number till 31.01.2019 to the following address: Technische Universität Hamburg
