"Research and Study with a Prospect"

The University of Wuppertal is a modern, dynamic and research-oriented campus university with an interdisciplinary profile in research and teaching. Collectively, more than 26,000 researchers, academic staff and students face the challenges of society, culture, education, economics, technology, nature and the environment.

The Faculty of School of Electrical, Information and Media Engineering invites applications for a 

Tenure-Track Assistant Professorship (W 1 – tenure W 2) for “Reliable Software and Distributed Systems”

(legal basis: W 1 LBesG NRW; § 36 HG NRW).

The position should be filled as soon as possible.

This professorship is funded by the Tenure-Track Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States.


The professorship should represent at least one of the following topics with a technical focus in research and teaching:

  • System Engineering and Deployment, Software Lifecycle Management
  • Software-Defined Systems
  • Reliable and Robust Systems, Verifiable Computing, Formal Verification

Applicants should be able to demonstrate relevant contributions to current international research as well as publications in renowned media. We require the willingness and ability to engage in interdisciplinary research collaboration at our university (especially with the Interdisciplinary Center for Machine Learning and Data Analytics - IZMD and the Interdisciplinary Center for Mobility and Energy - IZME) as well as with leading national and international research institutions. Experience and success in attracting competitive external funding are of particular interest.

The future position holder is expected to contribute to the further expansion of the consecutive computer science degree programmes and the further development of the master's degree programme in information technology at the University of Wuppertal. In teaching, intensive participation in all relevant bachelor's and master's programmes of the schools is expected, especially in computer science.

The position holder is expected to excel academically during his/her time as a junior professor, to be successful in obtaining external funding, and to excel in teaching. The academic personnel development of the university supports this with specific qualification offers.

Applicants are requested to enclose a research statement, a teaching statement, and results of teaching evaluations, if available, in summarized form with their application.


  • A university degree, for example in computer science, information technology, mathematics or electrical engineering
  • A particular aptitude for scientific work, usually demonstrated by the outstanding quality of a respective doctorate
  • Suitability for teaching, which is proven by appropriate previous experience or exceptionally determined in the appointment procedure
  • A record of first independent research and publication activities (in particular articles in peer-reviewed academic conferences and journals) 
  • Experience in the acquisition of external research funding and active participation in research projects
  • International orientation (e.g. stays abroad, international contacts, international lectures or publications)

The successful candidate helps to realise the equality of men and women at the University.

Tenure track:

Starting as junior professors, they are appointed normally as civil servants for a period of three years. These positions are extended for three more years if the junior professors have successfully passed an interim evaluation. After a positive tenure evaluation in the sixth year, the candidates are appointed associate professors (level W2, permanent position). Both evaluation procedures are based on a target agreement which is part of the appointment negotiations. The target agreement and a written confirmation verifying the negotiated financial and personal resources of the professorship are an integral part of the acceptance agreement between university and candidates.
