The Department of Computer Science at Technische Universität Darmstadt invites applications for the position of

Full Professor (W3) for Real-Time Data Analytics

to be appointed as soon as possible.

We are seeking an outstanding researcher to establish the Department’s new area of real-time data analytics through research and teaching. The main focus of the professorship will be on excellent, method-oriented research, with close links to systems and applications. It is also expected that the successful candidate plays a formative role in cross-department and interdisciplinary research activities; the bridge to engineering departments of the university, in particular to the department of mechanical engineering, is particularly important in this respect.

Relevant topics include real-time data analytics on dynamic data streams of various types (including sensor data, text, and images), adaptive information processing and integration, and interactive machine learning. Further topics of research include data analysis and its applications in the mining of data and data streams of heterogeneous nature, quality, and quantity and in the support of decision-making processes, decision management, and the creation of self-organizing systems. Example application areas include automotive engineering, transport and logistics, and cognitive information processing for information validation on the Web.

We expect applicants to have interdisciplinary experience in the use of data analysis methods in cooperation with scientists from other fields as well as with industrial partners. The professorship is intended to strengthen those profile areas of TU Darmstadt in which real-time requirements and interactivity play a central role, such as the Internet and digitization and their associated research fields such as data science, Industry 4.0, autonomous driving, smart transport and energy networks, smart buildings, but also natural language processing, cognitive science, and cybersecurity.

In addition to an outstanding academic CV, applicants must demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching computer science (incl. foundational courses) at the Bachelor’s and Master’s levels. A willingness to participate in academic self-administration is also expected.

Technische Universität Darmstadt is an autonomous university with a wide-ranging excellence in research, an interdisciplinary profile, and a strong focus on engineering as well as on information and communication technologies. Our Department is one of the leading national Computer Science departments and regularly ranked in the top group in national rankings.

Employment will be on a non-tariff basis, with qualification-based compensation based on the German W-level salary. Applicants who are already professors classed as German civil servants (Beamter) can retain this status. Employment regulations from §§61 and 62 of the Hessisches Hochschulgesetz apply.

Technische Universität Darmstadt is committed to increase the proportion of female scientific staff and therefore particularly encourages women to apply. All other things being equal, we will give preference to candidates with a degree of disability of at least 50 (or the equivalent).

Applications, including all the usual supporting documents, should be submitted to the Dean of the Department of Computer Science, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Hochschulstr. 10, 64289 Darmstadt, Germany, e-mail dekanat at informatik.tu-darmstadt.de. Please quote the reference number below.
