Based on its Structure and Development Plan 2018-2022 "Bioeconomy and Digital Transformation", the University of Hohenheim currently seeks to expand its
competence in informatics. Amongst others, this is accomplished by the establishment of the professorships "Bioinformatics", "Food Informatics",
and "Information Systems in Agribusiness" as well as the establishment of the cross-faculty "Computational Science Lab". In addition, the
Faculty of Agricultural Sciences is seeking to fill at the earliest convenience the following professorship at the Institute of Agricultural Engineering for the first time:
Tenure Track Professor (W1)
of Artificial Intelligence
in Agricultural Engineering
The professorship is funded by the "Artificial Intelligence Baden-Württemberg" program. This is a grade W1-professorship for which recruitment payments can be offered.
As agriculture is being digitalized, automated data collection and processing is becoming ever more important. The successful candidate will work with Artificial-Intelligence-based methods to collect, process, and analyze mass data in agricultural engineering. The candidate’s fields of research should include pattern analysis and prediction as well as applications for robotics. A doctorate in a relevant subject area is expected. Experience in agricultural engineering is beneficial.
Teaching will include basic-level courses on artificial intelligence as well as advanced courses on applied artificial intelligence in agricultural engineering. The candidate should be able to teach both in German and in English. The teaching load will comprise four contact hours per week.
The position offers attractive conditions for tenure-track appointees. This professorship is particularly suitable for highly qualified early career researchers. The requirements for an appointment are a completed university degree, pedagogical suitability and a doctorate of outstanding quality.
If the requirements for civil service are met, the appointment will be a temporary civil service position for six years. After six years, the applicant may be appointed to a W3-position if the requirements described in the University’s quality assurance guidelines are met. The appointment to a W3-position may be done without any additional call for applications and through a simplified appointment process. More information on quality assurance and evaluation is available at https://www.uni-hohenheim.de/en/appointment-principles. At the time of transfer to the W3-position, it will be evaluated whether it would be sensible to transfer additional duties in the field of Technology in Crop Production.
With equal qualifications, preference will be given to candidates with disabilities.
The University of Hohenheim seeks to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching, and therefore strongly encourages female scientists to apply.
Please attach the following documents to your application: a cover letter, a statement of your future research interests, a curriculum vitae, transcripts of records and degree certificates, a list of publications, a list of third-party funded projects, a teaching record, information on teaching evaluations as well as three key publications.
