The Faculty of *Computer Science* at the *University Koblenz-Landau* is
well known for its research excellence in the areas of *Semantic Web*
and *E-Government*. Research groups engaged in these two key areas
perform many research and implementation projects, both at international
as well as national level. As the public sector generates a vast amount
of information of different kinds to be exchanged across organisations
and to be provided for public access, this sector will benefit highly
from the application and use of new semantic web methods and tools.
E-Government employs such new Semantic Web methods in different ways to
offer advanced public services and new add-on services.

To better link the two key research areas and thereby strengthen the two
themes, the Faculty of Computer Science at Campus Koblenz (Germany)
solicits applications for the position of a

	*Assistant Professorship* in Applied Informatics 	
	focus areas Semantic Web and E-Government (W1).

The Assistant Professorship will be located at the Institute for
Information Systems Research and shall be awarded starting on 1.10.2010.

*Tasks*: The main activities expected from the future assistant
professor lie in applied research for the use and further development of
semantic technologies in the public sector. Acquisition of research
and implementation projects is highly welcome. Through cooperation with
the existing research groups, corresponding initiatives by the candidate
will be supported pro-actively.

The assistant professor will teach special topics in e-government and
semantic technologies at the Bachelor and Master level. It is expected
that the assistant professor will actively contribute to extend the
research excellence and the teaching profile of the Faculty of Computer
Science. The basis for such activities will be based on the existing
annual international summer programme of the Faculty in the areas of
E-Government and of Web Science. The obligatory teaching load currently
sums up to 4 hours per week per semester.

*Requirements*: Finalised PhD, pedagogic qualification, which needs to
be evidenced, and excellent competencies in scientific working in the
target areas of the  assistant professorship (to be evidenced with
excellent Doctorate). We expect experiences in research projects and
scientific publications in at least one (ideally both) fields to be
linked up and advanced. In case the applicant has been working as
scientific staff (including engagement as student staff) before or after
her / his doctoral studies, the phase of doctoral studies plus
scientific engagement must not exceed six years in total (maternity and
parental interruptions are not to be counted in).

Assistant professors are appointed for three years (with status of
public officer). An extension of further three years is possible based
on positive evaluation after three years. The State Rhineland-Palatinate
and the University of Koblenz-Landau apply a concept of intensive
coaching of students and therefore expect high presence of teachers at
University. The University is an equal-opportunity employer. We support
applications by women in order to achieve a gender balance in our
workforce. We preferably hire candidates with proven disabilities if
they have the same level of qualification and skills as the other
