Lancaster University Leipzig, Germany

Lancaster University invites applications for one post of Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in Computer Science to join at its exciting new campus in Leipzig, Germany. Located in one of Germany’s most vibrant, livable, and attractive cities, the Leipzig campus offers the same high academic quality and fully rounded student experience as in the UK, with a strong strategic vision of excellence in teaching, research, and engagement. 

The position is to support the upcoming MSc programme in Cyber Security, and to complement the department’s current research strengths on Intelligent Systems and Artificial Intelligence. The candidate is expected to have solid research foundations and a strong commitment in teaching Cyber Security topics such as Cybercrime, Digital Forensic, Network and System Security, and Penetration Testing.

The ideal candidate should have a completed PhD degree and demonstrated capabilities in teaching, research, and engagement in the areas of Cyber Security. Candidates should be able to deliver excellent teaching at graduate and undergraduate level, pursue their own independent research, and develop publications in high quality academic journals or conferences. Candidates are expected to have a suitable research track record of targeting high quality journals or a record of equivalent high-quality research outputs. 

Colleagues joining LU Leipzig’s computer science department will benefit from a very active research team in Leipzig with a focus on Intelligent Systems and Artificial Intelligence in the wider sense, but will also have access to the research environment at the School of Computing and Communications in the UK. We offer a collegial and multidisciplinary environment with enormous potential for collaboration and work on challenging real-world problems especially. 

German language skills are not a prerequisite for the role, though we are seeking applicants with an interest in making a long-term commitment to Lancaster University in Leipzig.

Please note this role is a full time, indefinite-duration appointment based in Leipzig, Germany. The contract is with Lancaster University Leipzig under German law. 

Ideally we would like the appointed candidate to start at latest on 1st January 2024. The opportunity is unique as the role is permanent after a 6-months probationary period, and offers the opportunity of being promoted to associate professor and professor in line with performance. We also support administrative procedures related to settlement in Germany and assistance in finding accommodation, family integration (school registration for children), German training (for you and your partner), and relocation expenses.

For an informal discussion about these roles please contact,

the Academic Dean: Prof Constantin Blome ([email protected])

the Head of Department: Dr Fabio Papacchini ([email protected])

On submitting an application candidates MUST attach a statement of their research and teaching visions (maximum 2 pages each) together with a cover letter and curriculum vitae.
