The Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) at the University of Münster,
Germany, invites applications to fill the post of a
Junior Professorship (Juniorprofessur)
(salary level W1, 100%)
in the field of remote sensing and image processing
This fixed-term position will begin at the earliest possible date. The
initial contract will run for three years and will be extended for another
three years after a successful interim evaluation.
Who are we looking for?
Applicants should have an outstanding PhD in remote sensing,
geoinformatics or a related discipline and should have a track record
of additional research in at least one innovative area related to remote
sensing and image processing. Of particular interest are the following
areas of research:
Applied remote sensing and image processing
Machine learning for image classification
Spatial data infrastructures for large-scale imagery
Time series analysis on remotely sensed images
Integration of sensors and sensor data
Applicants with a research focus in an area of remote sensing and
image processing other than the ones listed above are also very
welcome to apply, as long as the focus complements existing research
areas already present at the University of Münster, in particular within
the Faculty of Geosciences and the ifgi.
Applicants will be required to contribute to teaching (i.e. courses
related to geoinformatics that are part of several degree programs in
the faculty). The teaching load associated with the advertised post
is four hours per week during the teaching terms (five hours after
a successful mid-term evaluation). Courses are taught in English
or in German. In addition, the successful applicant will supervise
undergraduate and graduate students (including PhD students), and
contribute to the self-administration of the Institute and the faculty.
Finally, the successful applicant is expected to create their own
research agenda and research group.
The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and
is committed to increasing the proportion of women academics.
Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female
candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements
will be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal
possibilities. We also welcome applications from candidates with
severe disabilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifi cations
will be preferentially considered.
What are we offering?
The Institute for Geoinformatics is the first and largest of its kind
in Germany. Research and teaching cover a broad range of topics
in geoinformatics. Core research areas at ifgi currently include:
analysis and modelling of spatiotemporal processes, interaction with
spatiotemporal information, spatial cognition, geodata infrastructures,
geosimulation, UAVs, geotechnologies in education and smart cities.
ifgi offers a dynamic, research-intensive and international environment
with many opportunities for collaboration throughout the Institute, the
Faculty and the University. It is also nationally and internationally well
connected. Collaboration across groups and disciplines is explicitly
encouraged and practiced throughout the entire Institute. In addition,
the city of Münster is not only one of the most liveable cities in
Germany, but it also hosts several small and medium-sized enterprises
(SMEs) as well as larger companies working in areas closely related to
remote sensing and image processing.
How to apply?
Please submit your application with the usual documents (including a
research and a teaching plan) as a single PDF file via email by 31 March
2018 to the following address:
University of Münster
Dean of the Department of Geosciences
Prof Dr Harald Strauss
