Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) invites applications for up to two
Open Topic Tenure Track Professorships for Medical Procedures, Processes, and Interventions (W1 / Assistant Professor)
at the new Department of Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering. The professorships are to be filled by 01.11.2020.
The professorships are financed with funds from a Federal and State programme for supporting young researchers at German universities, for an initial period of three years. Upon successful evaluation, the appointment will be extended for another three years. FAU offers the long-term perspective of a permanent appointment to a W2/W3 professorship if the requirements of the tenure evaluation are met.
The successful candidates will be expected to teach and conduct research in the field of Artificial Intelligence in Biomedical Engineering with a particular focus on medical procedures, processes, and interventions / digital transformation. We seek to appoint top early career scientists who will develop outstanding expertise in the field, particularly in the following areas:
- medical processes (e.g. precision medicine, guided intervention, digital healthcare @home)
- neurosensorics (e.g. early diagnosis, neurologic-based communication disorders)
- personalised treatment (e.g. digital twin, human modelling, predictive medicine/P4)
- digital diagnostics and therapeutics (e.g. digital radiology, digital pathology, digital endoscopy)
The successful candidates will be expected to participate in teaching on the new consecutive Bachelor’s/Master’s degree programme in Artificial Intelligence and to be involved in setting up this programme. The professors will also be expected to contribute to existing degree programmes such as Medical Engineering, Medical Process Management, and Data Science. The professors will be members of the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Engineering.
