W1 TENURE-TRACK PROFESSORSHIP FOR EHEALTH AND SPORTS ANALYTICS
After its application to the federal-state programme for the promotion of early career researchers has been accepted, RUB is currently implementing 18 new tenure-track professorships. Following a successful tenure evaluation, the respective tenure-track professor will subsequently be awarded permanent tenure.
The Faculty of Sport Science at Ruhr-Universität Bochum will be awarding a
W1 tenure-track professorship for eHealth and Sports Analytics
Anticipated starting date: December 1st 2020
The future tenure-track professor will be representing the field of eHealth and Sport Analytics in education and research. We seek to appoint an expert in the research areas of "eHealth" and/or "Sports Analytics" in the context of physical activity and sports.
The successful candidate is expected to collaborate in an interdisciplinary manner with the representatives of the other fields at the Faculty of Sport Science and of other disciplines at RUB, especially the Faculty of Mathematics. It is further expected that the candidate contributes to the newly established Centre of Computer Science at RUB.
The successful candidate's responsibility is to teach in the areas of "applied statistics and data analysis" and "perspectives for digital transformations in sports".
Moreover, contributions to others of the Faculty's teaching areas (e.g. statistics) are expected. As teaching is mainly conducted in German, sufficient German language skills or the willingness to learn German within a period of three years are required.
We are looking for an excellent candidate with a university degree in Sport Science or Informatics/Applied Informatics or a related field. An outstanding doctoral degree and a strong publication record in the field of the professorship are further prerequisites. Demonstrated pedagogical aptitude is as much required as the fit of the candidate's profile to the strategic orientation of the Faculty of Sport Science.
The appointment requirements in accordance with § 36 ff. of the Higher Education Act of North Rhine-Westphalia (Hochschulgesetz NW;
www.rub.de/appointments) must be met.
