Ulm University is a young research university with a focus on natural sciences, medicine and technology. Located in an economically strong region, the University with its more than 10,000 students offers a dynamic work environment with attractive networking and development prospects.

The Faculty of Engineering, Comupter Science and Psychologie, Institute of Functional Nanosystems, is seeking to fill the following position, starting as soon as possible

Professor (W3) of Biomedical Sensors and Microsystems (f/m/d)

( management responsibilities)

The University is seeking to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and particularly encourages qualified female scientists to apply for this position.
Severely disabled applicants with equal aptitude will be given preferential consideration.

Research carried out at Ulm University has a pronounced orientation toward medicine, profiting from intensive and fruitful collaboration between medical colleagues and those working in scientific, technological and engineering disciplines. The new professorship for biomedical sensors and microsystems is planned to strengthen this interdisciplinary focus.

We look to hire a scientist with engineering background working at the forefront of biomedical sensor development and microsystems for biomedical applications; biosensing devices and materials; photonic and quantum-biosensing; multifunctional biomedical system concepts; sensor and actuator-fusion. Extension of these topics is conceivable to lab-on-a-chip, cell-chip technology, on-chip organ systems, active implants, brain-machine interface, molecular-biological analysis systems, tissue diagnostics or medical devices for theranostic applications. Translation and application experience is desired.

We seek an outstanding researcher with demonstrated scientific expertise in a number of the aforementioned areas. Professional experience in industry or at an applications-oriented research institute is desirable.

The successful candidate will manifest a passion for teaching as well as a willingness to shoulder tasks of academic self-governance, including participation in the new study program in biomedical engineering. Moreover, the new hire will be expected to develop specialized courses — to be taught in German and English — focusing on the professor’s research interests.

Employment requirements are completed university studies as well as teaching aptitude, a doctoral degree and further pertinent scientific achievements (§ 47 LHG).

Seize the opportunity and join us in shaping the future of the University!
