The University of Passau owes its strong visibility and good repute to excellent research, innovative teaching and its tight-knit international academic networks. Some 13,000 students and more than 1,100 staff study and work on our University campus, which is located a stone's throw from the historical Old Town of Passau and combines state-of-the-art technical infrastructure with award-winning architecture. Internationally successful high-tech companies and a vibrant start-up scene, coupled with a rich culture and Lower Bavarian traditions, give Passau and the surrounding area a special appeal that makes it a great place to live and work. The Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Passau invites applications for the civil-service post of: Chair of Software Engineering I (W3) Applicants should have an excellent international track record in research related to one or more of the following areas: Software Development Methodologies Software Architecture and Design Software Evolution Software Analysis Empirical Software Engineering Programming Languages The chair is of central importance to the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics. Close collaboration with the existing Chair of Software Engineering II is desired. Candidates are expected to represent their field in research and teaching. Teaching duties encompass contributions to the bachelor and master programs of the faculty, in particular, B.Sc. Computer Science and B.Sc. Internet Computing as well as M.Sc. Computer Science and M.Sc. Mobile and Embedded Systems. The teaching load is about 9 hours per week. An excellent publication track, a strong track record in the acquisition of external (third-party) funds and the potential for research collaborations within the faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics are important criteria. Research and teaching at the University of Passau are focused on the guiding themes of Digitalisation, Networked Society and (Internet) Cultures, Europe and Global Transformation, and Migration, Sustainable Development and Just Order. As a forward-looking, internationally visible and attractive university for Europe, the University of Passau seeks to make a significant contribution towards solving Europe's current and future challenges. Members of all faculties are in the process of establishing a unique, internationally-orientated forum for ground-breaking interdisciplinary research on one of the greatest challenges of our time: the societal implications of digitalisation. A willingness to cooperate on this interdisciplinary and cross-faculty project is expected of all future colleagues. The Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics is particularly strong in terms of external funds acquired and in the number of scientific publications; furthermore, it enjoys an excellent worldwide standing for its research output, and its teaching quality is proven by the outstanding results achieved in German and international university rankings. The faculty responds to the multifarious challenges of a dynamic research landscape on the basis of three core areas of competency: algorithmically-orientated mathematics and theoretical computer science as the formal theoretical foundations, computer science with a focus on software and information systems for the application of the theoretical foundations to a diverse range of phenomena, and mobile and embedded systems, which explores the interface between people and technology. The successful applicant will be educated to doctoral level and either possess a formal postdoctoral qualification, such as the German 'Habilitation', or equivalent academic achievements garnered within or outside the higher education system or as part of a prior assistant professor or comparable role (e.g. German 'Juniorprofessur').
