The Institute of Computer Engineering (ZITI) at Heidelberg University, 
Germany, invites applications for a newly created

*W3-Professorship in Medical Technology*.

**The core competencies of the ZITI lie in the development and operation 
of specialized computer hardware and hardware-associated soft- and 
firmware for the solution of challenging computer problems and for data 
acquisition, in the development of application specific microchips 
(analogue and digital) for digital communication and sensors, as well as 
in the areas of automation, robotics and biomechanics.

The main focus of research of this new professorship should lie in the 
development of new concepts for and in the construction of medical 
instruments, to which the core competencies of ZITI can contribute. For 
their practical application and development, the selected candidate 
should establish cooperation with both clinical faculties of the 
University and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), where already 
many developments and applications of new technologies have occurred 
(e.g. PET/MRT, 7T, radiotherapy, proton and ion therapy, robotics for 
surgery, prosthesis).

The professorship will be in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to teaching 
within the master programme „Computer Engineering“ as well as to the 
Bachelor and Master programmes in physics, in particular for the 
specialization “Medical Physics”.

Prerequisites for application are a university degree and (in accordance 
with Article 47, paragraph 2 of the Higher Education Law of the State of 
Baden-Württemberg) a Habilitation, a successfully evaluated junior 
professorship or equivalent qualification. The University of Heidelberg 
seeks to achieve a higher proportion of women in areas where they have 
not been adequately represented so far. Women with the required 
qualification are particularly encouraged to apply. Preference will be 
given to disabled applicants with equal qualifications for the position.

Qualified candidates are invited to submit their application including 
CV, a list of publications, a list with teaching experience and a 
research plan in electronic form (pdf) until *16.10.2017* to the Dean of 
the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Im Neuenheimer Feld 226, 
D-69120 Heidelberg (_dekanat at physik.uni-heidelberg.de_). Further 
information can also be obtained from the managing director of ZITI 
(_director at ziti.uni-heidelberg.de_).
