Position description

This position as Professor in Computer Science with specialization in Distributed Automation Systems, is related to our research and teaching in the areas of the next generation of intelligent automation systems (Beyond Industry 4.0).

It is of interest for you who work in the intersection of the following areas:  distributed systems, embedded systems, cloud, and want to apply your knowledge in the important area of automation and cyber-physical systems. You should be interested in modern platforms, methods, tools and applications that integrate our research to concepts and system solutions.

Your role is to take responsibility for the application area of distributed automation systems, focusing on platform solutions (software and hardware), using concepts related to cyber physical systems. This includes research on, for example, digitalization, methods and tools for heterogeneous (hardware and software) platforms, smart systems, smart and connected machines, products and applications.

The position embraces research, research supervision, continued development of the research area, and teaching.  The position also includes participating in outreaching activities through publications in highly ranked journals, but also through interaction with industrial professionals. As a professor, you will contribute to the development of the research group. This includes taking on leadership and jointly developing the research group, and the ability to initiate and to manage problem-oriented and interdisciplinary research projects. Further, you are expected to contribute to the development of strategic ongoing and future initiatives, both at MDH and in our strategic collaboration platforms.

Qualification requirements

Academic skills will have been demonstrated by independent research work which to a significant degree exceeds the requirements for docent competence (see the University’s Guidelines for assessment of docent competence).

Importance is also attached to the planning and leading of research. Academic skills may also have been demonstrated by the ability to achieve results in research through cooperation in joint projects of benefit to academia and to industry/the public sector/society in general and through the ability to disseminate research.

Teaching skills will have been demonstrated by teaching at first-cycle as well as third-cycle levels. The assessment of teaching skills shall apply to the planning, carrying out and evaluation of teaching as well as supervision and examination. Teaching skills shall be documented in such a way that their quality can also be assessed.

The applicant should have completed ten weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning, or have otherwise acquired equivalent knowledge. A person appointed as a Professor but lacking training in higher education teaching and learning will be offered in-house training during the first year. The course in higher education teaching and learning at Mälardalen University corresponds to ten weeks of training.

For other information, consult the Higher Education Ordinance, Chapter 4, and the Appointments Procedure for Mälardalen University.
