Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty IV

Tech­nis­che Uni­versitat Ber­lin, Fac­ulty IV - Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing and Com­puter Sci­ence - Insti­tute for Soft­ware Engin­eer­ing and The­or­et­ical Com­puter Sci­ence – invites applic­a­tions for the pos­i­tion of a

Uni­versity Pro­fess­or­ship – salary grade W3

for the field of „Pro­gram­ming Lan­guages“.

Work­ing field:

Research and teach­ing in the field of pro­gram­ming lan­guages with focus on at least two of the fol­low­ing areas:
  • Auto­matic debug­ging and auto­matic par­al­lel­iz­a­tion up to high-per­form­ance com­put­ing.
  • Data-cent­ric pro­gram­ming with applic­a­tions in the field of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence and machine learn­ing.
  • Com­mu­nic­a­tion-based sys­tems in the con­text of func­tional and object-ori­ented pro­gram­ming.
  • Pro­gram­ming mod­els and envir­on­ments for massively par­al­lel and dis­trib­uted / decent­ral­ized sys­tems, pos­sibly with vis­ions towards new chal­lenges such as Block­chain and Quantum Com­put­ing.
  • Com­piler con­struc­tion, e.g., com­piler optim­iz­a­tion using meth­ods and insights from machine learn­ing and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence.
  • Safety-crit­ical soft­ware and com­pil­a­tion: formal meth­ods in com­bin­a­tion with vari­ous secur­ity mod­els and attack scen­arios.

Research should be con­duc­ted in a suit­able com­bin­a­tion of the­or­et­ical and prac­tical empir­ical stud­ies. Close cooper­a­tion is expec­ted with the adja­cent fields of the fac­ulty, espe­cially Soft­ware and Embed­ded Sys­tems Engin­eer­ing, Soft­ware and Busi­ness Engin­eer­ing, Archi­tec­ture of Embed­ded Sys­tems, Dis­trib­uted Open Sys­tems, Data­base Sys­tems and Inform­a­tion Man­age­ment, Inform­a­tion Sys­tems Engin­eer­ing, Com­plex and Dis­trib­uted IT Sys­tems, and Mod­els and The­ory of Dis­trib­uted Sys­tems as well as cooper­a­tion with the diverse Ber­lin research land­scape (and bey­ond).

Teach­ing activ­it­ies include courses on basic and advanced top­ics in the area of pro­gram­ming lan­guages, pro­gram­ming, and com­piler con­struc­tion. This includes lec­tures as well as pro­jects, intern­ships and sem­inars. Lec­tures are to be included in both the Bach­elor's and Mas­ter's pro­grams of the Fac­ulty IV - Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing and Com­puter Sci­ence.


Can­did­ates must ful­fill the require­ments for appoint­ment at the pro­fessor level in com­pli­ance with § 100 Ber­lHG (Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act), includ­ing a com­pleted uni­versity degree, qual­i­fied achieve­ments in research (Ph.D.), post-doc­toral lec­ture qual­i­fic­a­tion (Habil­it­a­tion) or equi­val­ent qual­i­fic­a­tion and teach­ing qual­i­fic­a­tions, rep­res­en­ted or proven by a teach­ing port­fo­lio (more inform­a­tion on this on the TUB web­site, dir­ect access 144242).
Fur­ther­more expec­ted is a proven expert­ise in the­or­et­ical and prac­tical-empir­ical research and an out­stand­ing list of pub­lic­a­tions related to some of the lis­ted top­ics; the assump­tion of respons­ib­il­ity for lead­er­ship and man­age­ment of a chair and its employ­ees and the abil­ity to pro­mote young tal­ent and women are just as much a pre­requis­ite as gender and diversity com­pet­ence and act­ive com­mit­ment to know­ledge and tech­no­logy trans­fer and sci­ence com­mu­nic­a­tion.
The will­ing­ness to offer teach­ing in Ger­man as well as in Eng­lish lan­guage is also a pre­requis­ite. Very good Eng­lish lan­guage skills are required. The will­ing­ness to learn Ger­man is expec­ted from Non- Ger­man speak­ing applic­ants.

How to ap­ply:

With your applic­a­tion, please sub­mit a first concept for the planned research and teach­ing activ­it­ies. Proven exper­i­ence in the suc­cess­ful acquis­i­tion of third-party funds (in par­tic­u­lar DFG and com­par­able insti­tu­tions) is desired.

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is seek­ing to increase the pro­por­tion of women in research and teach­ing and act­ively encour­ages applic­a­tions from suit­ably qual­i­fied female can­did­ates. Pref­er­ence will be given to applic­ants with severe dis­ab­il­it­ies ful­filling the require­ments of the pos­i­tion. TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to equal­ity of oppor­tun­ity.
