Faculty Position at the University of Stuttgart, Germany:
Junior-Professor (W1 with Tenure Track) "Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR)" 
Application Deadline: July 15th, 2017

The University of Stuttgart, Germany, invites applications for a Junior-Professorship (W1 with Tenure Track) "Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality" as of the earliest possible date.

The new professor is expected to cover the field of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) and its applications to interactive visualization in research and teaching. The position will be established as part of the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart (VISUS), a central research facility of the University, and will be integrated into the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Information Technology.

We are looking for a person with excellent international reputation willing to advance research in AR/VR in the interdisciplinary interplay with natural sciences, engineering, and humanities. Expertise in several of the following areas, each with direct relationship to AR/VR, is expected:
* Augmented-reality and virtual-reality systems
* Real-time rendering for high-resolution and large displays
* Tracking and scene reconstruction
* Perception and cognition, evaluation methods
* Interaction techniques
* AR/VR applications (e.g. software-based production, industry 4.0, architecture, virtual research environments, medicine, eHealth, eGovernment, immersive visual analytics)

We encourage excellent young scientists in related areas of visualization, computer graphics, and human-computer interaction to apply.

We expect significant contributions to teaching in the (German language) Bachelor and Master programs of the Department of Computer Science as well as active acquisition of third party funding and involvement in collaborative research projects. The Visualization Research Center is substantially involved in the collaborative research center SFB/Transregio 161 "Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing", in the Cluster of Excellence "Simulation Technology", and several other collaborative research centers. The announced position is one of ten new professorships that are being installed at the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen as part of the Cyber Valley initiative, a research alliance in the field of intelligent systems.

The Junior-Professorship is supported by the Carl Zeiss Foundation and initially limited to 6 years. According to the terms of the University's quality assurance act for tenure track professorships, the W1 position will be converted to a permanent W3 professorship after successful evaluation. The requirements for employment listed in §47 and §51 Landeshochschulgesetz Baden-Württemberg (State regulations for institutions of higher education) apply.
