Job Beschreibung: Offer Description
The Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (THWS) is one of the largest practice-oriented higher education institutions in Bavaria. With focus areas ranging from technology over social sciences and economics to design and languages, THWS covers a wide subject spectrum. We support around 9,200 students in more than 50 degree programmes on their educational path. We tackle the challenges to all of society, like the energy system transformation, or the climate crisis, with innovative and international degree programme offers. We were pioneers in the conception of bilingual degree programmes (TWIN Programmes), in establishing the first undergraduate degree in Hydrogen Technology, and the software-centred degree programme in Robotics. Digitisation is also an important focus area of our University. Within the frame of the Hightech Agenda Bavaria, the Free State of Bavaria is currently investing substantially in the further development of our University as part of the Bavarian AI-network. Thus, at the THWS location in Würzburg, a Center for Strong Artificial Intelligence, and at the location in Schweinfurt, a Center for Robotics are created.
More than 240 THWS professors are not only passionate about teaching, but also about conducting applied research in cooperation with companies, institutions, and social institutions from the region. Successful knowledge transfer in industry and society characterises our professors as well as interdisciplinary collaboration across ten faculties and eight research institutions. Around 640 scientific, technical, and administrative employees support them in their endeavours.
At our locations in Main Franconia, town meets country, and culture meets nature offering diverse leisure opportunities. To promote the reconciliation of family and working life, THWS currently participates in the audit familiengerechte hochschule (family-friendly higher education institution).
Continuous growth, innovative teaching, and pioneering research characterise the atmosphere at THWS.
In addition to teaching, the scientist shall for an initial period of five years initiate and carry out application-oriented research and development projects (up to nine semester hours per week, which correspond to as much as 50 percent of the current teaching load) as well as promote networking of users and industries, and implement practice-oriented projects – also and especially in the course of teaching. The position is permanent.
Individual research and development performance are expected from the scientist. A five-year target agreement is concluded on research and development performance. THWS strives to extend these periodically.
