Professorship (W3) systems software

The Institute of Computer Science at Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, invites applications for a

professorship (W3) systems software.

The expected starting date is October 2021. Our new colleague (m/f/o) is expected to pursue fundamental research goals in the field of system software. The following areas are of particular interest:

  • Cloud-based system software like Databases as a Service or Machine Learning as a Service.
  • Development and implementation of domain-specific languages (DSLs), for instance for declarative machine learning.
  • Operating systems, networks, and distributed systems.

Strong implementation skills are required that have to be demonstrated by the development of particular system software. In addition, the successful candidate should take advantage of the excellent opportunities for cooperation provided in Jena, for instance within the Michael-Stifel-Center for Data-Driven and Simulation Science. Also, she or he should have leadership competencies as well as successfully acquired third party funding.

Practical computer science is a main pillar of computer science in Jena. Our new colleague is responsible for and plays a major role in the indispensable basic education of students in the areas of programming and systematic software development.

A PhD, habilitation, or equivalent scholarly achievements as well as suitable teaching skills and experiences are required.

Friedrich Schiller Jena University encourages female scientists to apply. Handicapped applicants of equal qualification will be given preference.

Applications with the usual documents (curriculum vitae, copies of certificates, list of publications, list of university courses given, list of external funding raised, and a research statement) should be sent electronically (in a single pdf file) and by post by 30 November 2019 to:
