Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Busi­ness and Eco­no­mics

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Chair (W2) of Busi­ness Infor­ma­tics, esp. Busi­ness Engi­nee­ring
(with ten­ure track to W3)

As part of the Ten­ure Track Pro­gramme of the Ger­man Federal Govern­ment and the Federal Sta­tes, the Faculty of Busi­ness and Eco­no­mics invi­tes app­li­ca­ti­ons for the
Chair (W2) of Busi­ness Infor­ma­tics, esp. Busi­ness Engi­nee­ring (with ten­ure track to W3)
with a six year con­tract, to be fil­led on Octo­ber 1st 2019. In being appoin­ted to the chair, eva­lua­tion cri­te­ria will be mutually agreed upon, which will be eva­lua­ted by a TU Dres­den eva­lua­tion com­mis­sion at the latest in the fifth year of the chair. The main focus of the eva­lua­tion will be the sci­en­ti­fic suc­cess in the form of sub­ject-rele­vant and high-qua­lity publi­ca­ti­ons, the acqui­si­tion of third-party rese­arch funds as well as rela­ted pro­ject manage­ment in each case at the level of a W3 chair, com­mit­ment and suc­cess in teaching per­for­mance and pro­mo­tion of young sci­en­tists, the net­wor­king in the sci­en­ti­fic com­mu­nity and spe­cial com­mit­ment to the aca­de­mic sel­fad­mi­nis­tra­tion. Fol­lo­wing a posi­tive eva­lua­tion, a per­ma­nent Chair (W3) of Busi­ness Infor­ma­tics, esp. Busi­ness Engi­nee­ring will be gran­ted.

Work­ing field:

During the tem­porary posi­tion at the chair, the app­li­cant must prove that she/he is capa­ble of ful­fil­ling all requi­re­ments in teaching and rese­arch in this field. The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will con­duct rese­arch and teaching activi­ties in the field of Busi­ness Engi­nee­ring and par­ti­ci­pate in aca­de­mic sel­fad­mi­nis­tra­tion. The pro­fes­sor is expec­ted to teach cour­ses in the faculty's bache­lor, mas­ter and Diplom pro­gram­mes, in par­ti­cu­lar in busi­ness infor­ma­tion sys­tems & engi­nee­ring (BISE) foun­da­ti­ons and in the sys­tems deve­lop­ment spe­cia­liza­t­ion. We also expect the suc­cess­ful can­di­date to coope­rate actively with both, the mem­bers of the faculty and other disci­pli­nes wit­hin the uni­ver­sity, and to cont­ri­bute to exter­nal fund­rai­sing.


The ideal can­di­date holds an excel­lent PhD (or equi­va­lent) in BISE and has a track record of addi­tio­nal excel­lent aca­de­mic achie­ve­ments demons­tra­ted through pre­sen­ta­ti­ons and papers in top inter­na­tio­nal sci­en­ti­fic con­fe­ren­ces and jour­nals. In line with the faculty's and the BISE group's pro­file we expect the can­di­date to con­duct design sci­ence rese­arch aimed at the deve­lop­ment of theo­ries for design and action. We addi­tio­nally wel­come a rese­arch focus in those fields of Busi­ness Engi­nee­ring that spe­ci­fi­cally relate to digi­tal trans­for­ma­tion of orga­ni­sa­ti­ons. A domain focus in any of TUD's rese­arch prio­rity areas – pre­fe­r­a­bly based on indus­try col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons – is of advan­tage. Expe­ri­ence in acqui­ring third-party fun­ding and in the respec­tive manage­ment of rese­arch pro­jects are requi­red. We expect good teaching skills as well as the ability and wil­ling­ness to offer cour­ses in Eng­lish. Pro­fi­ci­ency in Ger­man is not a pre­re­qui­site for appoint­ment. Howe­ver, we expect the suc­cess­ful can­di­date to acquire suf­fi­ci­ent lan­guage skills in Ger­man to con­duct teaching and admi­nis­tra­tive tasks wit­hin two years of appoint­ment. Can­di­da­tes who hold a PhD at the TU Dres­den should have worked at least two years in a rese­arch posi­tion out­s­ide of TU Dres­den to be eli­gi­ble.
App­li­cants must ful­fil the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (SächsHSFG).

What we of­fer:

TU Dres­den sup­ports ten­ure track pro­fes­sors with a pro­gramme spe­ci­fi­cally tailo­red to their needs. Men­to­ring, various coa­ching ses­si­ons, and spe­cial con­ti­nuing edu­ca­tion pro­gram­mes and sup­port offers pro­vide active pro­fes­sio­nal gui­dance throughout the dura­tion of the tem­porary posi­tion at the chair.
TU Dres­den seeks to employ more female pro­fes­sors. Hence we par­ti­cu­larly encou­rage women to apply. App­li­ca­ti­ons from can­di­da­tes with disa­bi­li­ties or those requi­ring addi­tio­nal sup­port are very wel­come. The uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a Dual Career Ser­vice.
