Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces, Insti­tute of Pho­to­gram­me­try and Remote Sen­sing

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.

Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship (W1) in Envi­ron­men­tal Remote Sen­sing (W2 with ten­ure track)

As part of the Ten­ure Track Pro­gramme, the Insti­tute of Pho­to­gram­me­try and Remote Sen­sing at the Faculty of Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces invi­tes app­li­ca­ti­ons for the Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship (W1) in Envi­ron­men­tal Remote Sen­sing (W2 with ten­ure track) to begin on 1st Octo­ber 2018.
The cho­sen can­di­date will initi­ally receive a limi­ted, four-year con­tract as a tem­porary public offi­cial. If the inte­rim eva­lua­tion is posi­tive, the employ­ment con­tract will be exten­ded to a total of six years. In the fifth year, a ten­ure eva­lua­tion will be car­ried out by a faculty-wide and school-wide com­mis­sion. Fol­lo­wing a posi­tive eva­lua­tion, a- per­ma­nent Chair (W2) of Envi­ron­men­tal Remote Sen­sing will be gran­ted without a rene­wed call for app­li­ca­ti­ons.

Work­ing field:

Dur­ing the tem­por­ary Junior Pro­fess­or­ship, the can­did­ate must prove that they are cap­able of ful­filling the research and teach­ing require­ments in the field. They shall con­trib­ute core com­pet­ence in meth­od­o­lo­gical devel­op­ment for the pre­par­a­tion of quant­it­at­ive data for the space-time ana­lysis of envir­on­mental pro­cesses on regional and global scales. The focus of the research is on the devel­op­ment of image ana­lysis meth­ods for the eval­u­ation of multi-sens­ory and multi-tem­poral remote sens­ing data in inter­dis­cip­lin­ary cooper­a­tion with sci­ent­ists of the Fac­ulty of Envir­on­mental Sci­ences. Act­ive par­ti­cip­a­tion in the CAWR and an intens­i­fic­a­tion of cooper­a­tion with other envir­on­mental research insti­tu­tions in the region are expec­ted. The can­did­ate should have an inter­na­tional repu­ta­tion in remote envir­on­mental sci­ence and be able to demon­strate suc­cess­ful pre­vi­ous work, espe­cially in inter­dis­cip­lin­ary cooper­a­tion with the Geosciences, Hydro Sci­ences or Forest Sci­ences. Inter­na­tional net­work­ing and exper­i­ence with acquir­ing third-party funds ought to be demon­strated through suc­cess­ful research col­lab­or­a­tions or pro­jects.

Teach­ing tasks are to be car­ried out primar­ily in the degree pro­grammes Geodesy and Geoin­form­at­ics (Bach­elor, Mas­ter). Will­ing­ness to offer rel­ev­ant lec­tures in Ger­man and Eng­lish in fur­ther degree pro­grammes at the Fac­ulty of Envir­on­mental Sci­ences is expec­ted. In addi­tion to an excel­lent aptitude for sci­entific work, a high ped­ago­gical-didactic aptitude is required. We expect you to be act­ively involved in aca­demic self-admin­is­tra­tion and in the aca­demic com­mit­tees of the fac­ulty.


Eva­lua­tion cri­te­ria mutually agreed upon when the posi­tion is accep­ted will form the basis of the eva­lua­tion pro­ce­du­res. Essen­tial ele­ments of the eva­lua­ti­ons will be sci­en­ti­fic suc­ces­ses in the form of the deve­lop­ment of an inde­pen­dent rese­arch pro­file for the Chair of Envi­ron­men­tal Remote Sen­sing and its imple­men­ta­tion in rese­arch, third-party fun­ding pro­jects and publica-tions, par­ti­ci­pa­tion in natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal peer-reviewed publi­ca­ti­ons and inter­na­tio­nal con­fe­ren­ces, suc­cess in acqui­ring third-party funds, the initia­tion of coope­ra­tion pro­jects wit­hin the faculty and in the School of Civil and Envi­ron­men­tal Engi­nee­ring, active par­ti­ci­pa­tion in the Cen­ter for Advan­ced Water Rese­arch (CAWR) as well as the deve­lop­ment of inno­va­tive and posi­tively-eva­lua­ted course con­tents in your area of exper­tise as well as for other degree pro­gram­mes in the faculty, also in Eng­lish.
App­li­cants must ful­fil the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 63 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (Hig­her Edu­ca­tion Act of 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 Junior Pro­fes­sor­ship.

TU Dres­den seeks to employ more female pro­fes­sors. Hence we par­ti­cu­larly encou­rage women to apply. App­li­ca­ti­ons from disa­b­led can­di­da­tes or those with addi­tio­nal sup­port needs are very wel­come. The Uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a Dual Career Ser­vice.
