University Professorship (m/f/d) – Salery Scale W3 NBesO –

starting at January 1, 2022.

The professorship is to represent the topic of reliability and scalability of software systems.

We are looking for an internationally renowned researcher with experience in raising third-party funding. Courses on basic and advanced topics are to be offered, including selected courses held in English.


The professorship is intended to complement the research focus of the faculty and to create new synergies with its cross-sectional topic. Depending on the specific orientation, there are excellent cooperation possibilities with the existing professorships in the faculty as well as in the L3S research center, in the eNIFE research center, as well as with the Hannover Medical School and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.


Active engagement in the acquisition of third-party funds, both in the national and European context (DFG and Excellence Initiative, BMBF / BMWI and EU projects) is expected.


General responsibilities and conditions of appointment apply, in accordance with the Lower Saxony Higher Education Act (Niedersächsisches Hochschulgesetz - NHG).


Part-time employment can be arranged upon request.


As an equal opportunities employer, Leibniz University Hannover has set itself the strategic aim of significantly increasing the proportion of women. Female scientists are therefore particularly encouraged to apply. Applications from abroad are especially welcome. Preference will be given to equally qualified candidates with disabilities.


In its mission statement, Leibniz University Hannover attaches great importance to the international orientation of teaching and research. At the same time, it places significant value on the intensive guidance and support of its students and on the university’s close ties to the region and to Lower Saxony. Its professors are thus expected to be based in the Hannover Region.
Successful candidates who have reached the age of fifty by the time of appointment and who do not already have civil servant status will generally be given an employment contract.
