The Department of Computer Science and Mathematics of Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt am Main invites applications for the following position at the Institute of Computer Science, which is funded by the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States (BLP-TT), starting at the earliest possible date:


The initial tenure track appointment as Assistant Professor (civil servant or public employee) is for six years according to § 64 of the Higher Education Act of the State of Hessen (HHG). Upon positive evaluation, the incumbent will be promoted to a permanent position at a higher level (W2). The invitation to apply aims to reach early-stage researchers. According to § 64 (3) HHG candidates should not have obtained their PhD at Goethe University Frankfurt or should have worked as a researcher at an external institution for at least two years after their PhD. The doctorate should not date back to more than four years.

We are seeking a candidate widely recognized for excellent research in one or several of the research areas Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Scientific Visualization, or Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality to complement our current team.

We expect the candidate to have finished a doctorate (with grades at least ‘very good’, if obtained within Germany) and to possess an excellent track record of scientific publications. The professorship is embedded in the attractive research landscape in Frankfurt within and outside of the university (see http://www.goethe-university-frankfurt.de/en?locale=en). There are intensive collaborations with the Cluster of Excellence Cardio Pulmonary Institute (CPI) and with other research institutions both within and outside of the university. Experience in the acquisition of third-party funded projects is desirable. The successful applicant is expected to cooperate with other research teams and to connect to the research topics of the Institute of Computer Science, the Department and Goethe University.

We are looking for a dedicated academic teacher who will be actively involved in our graduate and undergraduate programs. Upon positive tenure evaluation, a substantial participation in the basic courses in programming is expected. Successful candidates will be required to participate in the academic self-government.

The designated salary for the position is based on the German university pay scale or equivalent. Goethe University is committed to increasing the proportion of female faculty and therefore especially encourages women to apply. Applications of scientists from abroad are explicitly requested. Severely disabled applicants with equal qualification and aptitude will be given preferential consideration.
