At the Institute for Computer Science of the Julius-Maximilians- 
University Wuerzburg the following tenured positions are available from 
1. April  2009 :

W3-Professor on „Aerospace Information Technology“
We search for this full professor position a researcher of international 
reputation with experience in aerospace technologies and with research 
emphasis in areas like
• On board data processing systems, micro-processors, embedded control,
• Autonomy, control technology,
• Signal- and information processing, navigation systems,
• Redundancy concepts, real-time operation systems.
Interdisciplinary cooperations between Computer Science, Physics and 
Engineering should be supported. Emphasis in teaching will concern 
lectures on on-board data processing systems, micro-processors and 
embedded control, sensor systems, introduction to aerospace systems, 
laboratories and hardware practicals in these fields.

W2-Professor on „Telematics“
We search for this associate professor position a well recognized 
researcher with aerospace background. The research emphasis should be in 
areas like
• telemetry and telecommand, telematic methods and hardware,
• advanced telecommunication systems, fault-tolerant and self-organizing
• supervisory control, remote control,
• ground control operations, telecommunication hardware, quality of
   service / experience
Interdisciplinary cooperations between Computer Science, Physics and 
Engineering should be supported. Emphasis in teaching will concern 
lectures on telematics, aerospace systems, remote control systems, 
laboratories and hardware practicals in these fields. This position will 
be affiliated with chair Informatics VII: robotics and telematics.

For both positions the lectures will be related to the programs -program 
„Aerospace informatics” (Bachelor), the international „SpaceMaster“ 
(Master) (www.spacemaster.uni-wuerzburg.de) and SpaceMathematics 
(Master), as well as to Computer Sciences. The classes can be offered in 
English language. An active support and cooperation in planned and 
existing graduate programs is expected.

Prerequisites are pedagogical skills, completed university studies, PhD, 
and Habilitation or similar level research results (achieved as junior 
professor or at positions outside academia). At appointment the age of 
52 years should not be completed (exceptions in urgent cases are 
possible according to Art. 10 Abs. 3 Satz 2 BayHSchPG). The university 
wants to increase the percentage of female faculty and encourages 
applications of women. Disabled persons will be prefered at equal skill 

Applications with the usual documents (curriculum vitae, copies of 
certificates, list of publications, copies of 3 selected publications, 
list of lectures offered so far and professional activities in the 
aerospace sector) are to be sent until  9. January 2009 to

Profile Julius-Maximilians-University Wuerzburg  (JMUW)
The university was first founded in 1402, enrolls today more than 20000 
students in 12 faculties and hosts well known research institutions. 13 
Nobel prize winners worked there, among them Wilhelm Röntgen, the 
discoverer of the X-rays.

Würzburg, located near the centre of Germany, offers a wide range for 
recreation and leisure activities together with theaters, open-air 
concerts, and wine festivals. Located at the shores of the river Main, 
vineyards, castles, mediaval cities and baroque residences (the bishop’s 
residence is on the list of the UNESCO world inheritage) are 
characteristic for the region.
