Temporary University Professor (W2) for Signal Processing / Management position (f/m/d) in the area of "Signal Processing"
University of Siegen / Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Technology (FHR)
We are an interdisciplinary and open-minded university with currently around 18,000 students and
a range of subjects from the humanities, social and economic sciences to natural, engineering and
life sciences. With over 2,000 employees, we are one of the largest employers in the region and
offer a unique environment for teaching, research and further education.
The Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Siegen, in the Center for Sensor Systems (ZESS)
in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Technology
(FHR) is seeking to appoint a
Temporary University Professor
(Bes. Gr. W2 LBesG NRW)
for Signal Processing
as soon as possible, initially limited to 5 years. After the success of the professorship has been
positively verified, it is planned to permanently extend the position within the scope of the existing
legal framework (carrying out an appointment procedure without advertising).
The person to be appointed for the professorship “Signal Processing” should represent this area in
research and teaching. This joint professorship with the Fraunhofer Society is linked to a
Management position in the area of

The appointed person will be to the FHR under the “Berlin model”. The professorship is intended to
strengthen the joint research between the University of Siegen/ZESS and the FHR.
The job applicant is expected to have a solid research background in two or more of the following
areas: signal processing for high-frequency and radar systems, bi- and multi-static sensors and
networks, high-frequency technology including communication applications and antenna theory.
An essential part of the professorship is the connection of theoretical principles with mathematical
models and signal processing methods and the realization of innovative sensor hardware, measurement
technology and algorithms or software technology necessary for the implementation of
sensor concepts in practical applications.
The advertised professorship has a high international networking potential within the engineering
sciences, both in information technology and communications engineering. Good networking
within the departments at national and international level and direct connections to the associated
research groups in the field of radar technology and signal processing, in particular bi- and multistatic
sensor systems as well as passive radar, and with existing coordinated research projects in
sensor technology are expected. It is also mandatory that the future professorship takes an active
and constructive role in terms of initiating joint research initiatives with ZESS and FHR as well as
other coordinated research projects, such as DFG-funded joint research projects with a strong
focus on sensor sciences. An internationally recognized research profile is expected, which includes
high-quality publications in recognized scientific journals and experience in planning and organizing
scientific events and conferences.
In teaching, courses in the field of radar technology, radar signal processing and the theory of
antennas (preferably in English) should be offered. The teaching obligation is 2 hours per week.
Sufficient experience in teaching and supervising theses and doctorates is required.
The willingness to actively and constructively participate in the self-governing bodies of the faculty
and the Center for Sensor Systems is expected.
In addition to the general legal employment requirements, which include a university degree, special
aptitude for academic work, which is usually proven by the quality of a doctorate, and additional
academic achievements, extensive teaching experience and evidence of didactic competence. The
additional academic achievements may have been performed in the context of a junior professorship,
a habilitation or an activity as a research assistant with the corresponding management skills
at a university or non-university research institution or in the context of another research activity. If
the personal requirements are met, the employee will be employed as a civil servant.
Please send applications with the usual documents (curriculum vitae, copies of certificates, list
of publications, list of courses, list of third-party funded projects, and research and teaching
concept) to the Dean of Faculty IV of the University of Siegen, 57068 Siegen, by 26.03.2021.
