As one of the few selected Universities of Excellence in Germany, 
University of Bonn already has a strong focus on all aspects of 
Artificial Intelligence, with research in machine learning, semantic 
modeling, robotics, and computer vision all the way to neuroscience and 
ethical foundations. As part of our strategic push into AI, we are now 
inviting applications for up to four additional, excellently equipped,

*Full Professorships (W3) / Tenure-Track Professorships (W1 to W3)  in  
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning*

to be part of the

*Lamarr Institute for Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence*

which is currently being created based on our existing Competence Center 
Machine Learning Rhein-Ruhr ML2R. The Lamarr Institute will bring 
together all AI activities of University of Bonn and its partners with 
significant growth based on permanent institutional funding.
Applicants are expected to have demonstrated internationally outstanding 
research in one or more relevant subfields of Artificial Intelligence 
with a strong focus on Machine Learning, if possible related to one or 
more of the five major research areas of the Lamarr Institute:
- Resource-Aware ML: Optimize algorithms for available resources and new 
- Trustworthy AI: Make AI ethical, reliable, understandable, and certifiable
- Hybrid ML: Combine data and knowledge in ML algorithms

Professorships will be appointed as tenured full professor (W3). 
Dual-career appointments are possible for suitable candidates.

W1 Positions will be appointed as Junior Professorships for an initial 
phase of three years and will be extended for three more years after a 
positive intermediate evaluation. After successful tenure evaluation, 
the position will turn into a  permanently tenured full professorship (W3).

the near future.
Besides integration into the Lamarr Institute, involvement with other 
major activities such as the excellence cluster PhenoRob and the 
transdisciplinary research areas of University of
Bonn is possible. Close cooperation within our partner institutions is 
expected, as is the capability of positioning the Lamarr Institute 
towards society and industry. The acquisition of third-party research 
funds and participation in and contribution to joint grant activities in 
computer science are requested.
Formal requirements are defined by § 36 of the Higher Education Act of 
North RhineWestphalia (Hochschulgesetz Nordrhein-Westfalen).
The University of Bonn actively supports diversity and equal 
opportunities. The University of Bonn has been certified as a 
family-friendly university and offers a dual career service. Its aim is 
to increase the proportion of women in those fields in which women are 
underrepresented and to place a special focus on promoting their 
careers. Therefore, the university specifically requests applications

Applications from suitably qualified people with severe disabilities 
that have already been verified or from people with an equivalent status 
will be particularly welcomed.
Applications including the usual documents (Letter, curriculum vitae, 
list of publications, selected publications, research plan, teaching 
concept, copies of degree certificates) are expected in electronic form 
(one PDF file) until 12.12. 2022 addressed to the 
fachgruppe at informatik.uni-bonn.de.
