Visiting professor position:
Computer Science (Process-oriented Information Systems)
University of Vienna
2 years - apply by January 10, 2021


We are looking for outstanding computer scientists who are pursuing research
in process-oriented information systems (POIS). Such systems are the core of
every company's IT landscape. The challenges for designing, implementing, and
executing POIS at the highest quality level comprise user-friendly and
efficient process modeling at design and execution level, the smooth and
correct implementation of executable processes, the continuous monitoring and
analysis of running processes as well as the ability to flexibly react on
process changes. The visiting professorship focuses on the correct, secure,
and efficient design, implementation, and monitoring of POIS during runtime,
i.e., the "technical side" of POIS. This research focus is also reflected in
teaching activities comprising courses such as Workflow Technologies and
Interoperability. The visiting professorship combines research at the
fundamental and application-oriented level, the latter addressing domains such
as, for example, manufacturing, logistics, and health care. High collaboration
potential is available within the Faculty of Computer Science, e.g., with
respect to security and data mining, as well as across the University of
Vienna, e.g., with respect to economic aspects.

Successful candidates should have the following qualifications:

Doctoral degree/PhD and post-doctoral experience at a university or other research institution
Habilitation (venia docendi) in a subject field relevant to this position or an internationally accepted equivalent qualification is  desirable
Outstanding achievements in research, excellent publication record, international reputation
Experience in designing, procuring and managing large research projects, as well as the willingness and ability to lead research groups
Enthusiasm for excellent teaching, teaching experience at universities as well as the ability and willingness to teach students in all phases of their studies (bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral level), to supervise academic theses and to promoting young academic colleagues
We offer:
 a salary (classification according to the Collective Bargaining Agreement for University Staff, allocation to job group A1; section 99 (1) of the Universities Act 2002)
a dynamic research location with well-established research funding provisions
attractive working conditions in a city with a high quality of life
a wide range of support services offered by central service institutions

The University of Vienna pursues a non-discriminatory employment policy and
values equal opportunities, as well as diversity
(http://diversity.univie.ac.at). The University puts special emphasis on
increasing the number of women in senior and in academic positions. Given
equal qualifications, preference will be given to female applicants.

Application documents:

Application letter, including a brief description of:
current research interests and research plans for the immediate future  
current and planned foci in academic teaching and the supervision of young researchers
Academic curriculum vitae, including information about “esteem factors” (e.g. experience as a publisher, functions in research societies or programme committees)
List of publications, including:
specification of five key publications which the applicant considers particularly relevant to the advertised professorship
provision of an Internet link for download or electronic submission of PDF versions of these five publications
information about citations and impact factors, depending on the common practice in the relevant research area
 List of talks given,  including information about invited keynote lectures at international conferences
Third-party funds
list of acquired third-party funds (subject, duration, origin, volume) as well as, if applicable, of inventions/patents
Overview of previous academic teaching and supervised theses, especially doctoral theses
