Full Professor of Artificial Intelligence in Microscopy & Spectroscopy

at pay grade W3 (minimum salary: 7,217 euros per month). This is a permanent civil service position.

We are looking for an internationally outstanding scholar who will establish an independent research and teaching profile at the interface between computer science and the natural and life sciences. Applicants who combine artificial intelligence methods such as Convolutional Neural Networks or Deep Learning with biological/medical image and signal processing, for example in the fields of multimodal imaging or feedback-controlled microscopy, are particularly welcome. In particular, cooperation with the future Medical Campus Upper Franconia, the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre SFB/TRR 225 ‘From the fundamentals of biofabrication towards functional tissue models’  and the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1357 ‘Microplastics’, as well as other future collaborative initiatives is expected.

The postholder will be involved in the teaching of computer science courses and courses in the natural and life sciences. The ability to teach in English is a prerequisite for employment, as significant parts of the teaching programme are offered in English; international applicants must be willing and able to teach in German, at least in the medium term.

In addition to the general administrative requirements, prerequisites for this position are a university degree, a doctoral degree, proven excellence in teaching, and a post-doctoral qualification to teach at a professorial level (Habilitation). Alternatively, evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement, for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment, will also be considered. Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants. Exceptions will only be made if there are compelling reasons for doing so (Art. 10 (3) BayHSchPG).

The University of Bayreuth views the diversity of its staff as an asset and is expressly committed to the goal of gender equality. Female scholars and any persons who can help make the research and teaching profile of the university more diverse are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth is a member of the best practice club Family at University, and it offers “dual career support” for career-oriented partners of highly qualified employees. All qualifications being equal, applicants with disabilities will be given priority.

 Applications (CV, outlining education and academic career, list of publications, list of courses taught, experience obtaining external funding, as well as copies of all diplomas and certificates) are to be submitted electronically to the Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics & Computer Science Prof. Dr. Volker Ulm via https://uni-bayreuth.berufungsportal.de  by 16.01.2022. Applicants are welcome to direct questions and requests for further information to the Dean at dekanat.mpi@uni-bayreuth.de.
