Full Professor (W3) in Machine Learning


Saarland University
Department of Computer Science

Saarland University has leading departments in computer science and computational linguistics, with more than 350 PhD students working on cutting-edge research topics and more than 60% of our Master’s students coming from abroad (see https://saarland-informatics-campus.de for additional information). We collaborate closely with a number of internationally renowned state-of-the-art research institutes in informatics forming the Saarland Informatics Campus (SIC). With its 800 researchers and more than 2000 students from more than 80 countries, the SIC belongs to one of the leading locations for computer science in Germany and Europe.

ML is already a strong research topic at the SIC, which offers manifold opportunities for collaborative research, along with internationally renowned research groups in related fields such as formal methods, algorithms, visual computing, bioinformatics, computational linguistics, etc. With the present opening, and with the earlier opening for a tenure track professorship in ML, the department of Computer Science seeks to strengthen its ML focus as part of the active and growing ML landscape at the SIC.

Applicants must have a university degree in a corresponding or related field and an excellent PhD or doctoral degree. They must have demonstrated outstanding research abilities and the ability to successfully lead their own research group. They have additional scientific achievements, e.g. a habilitation or research and teaching experience as assistant professor. The teaching language is English or German (basic courses).
