Es besteht grundsätzlich die Möglichkeit der Teilzeitbeschäftigung.
Die Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU) ist eine der renommiertesten und größten Universitäten Deutschlands.
AufgabenThe scientist will work in the Research Group Technology-Enhanced Learning under the direction of Professor Dr. Sven Strickroth of the Teaching and Research Unit Programming and Modelling Languages.
The group's main areas of interest are digital media and technologies supporting human learning, co-operation, communication, and social interaction. Investigated are theories, methods and innovative technologies to support learning in different situations. Research topics include open, adaptive and collaborative learning environments, gamification, learning analytics as well as technologies for (automatic) assessment and feedback.
Applicants are expected to contribute in research in the field of Technology-Enhanced Learning. An efficient and quick completion of the doctoral studies is expected and will be supported.
We also expect a creative and committed mentoring of project and research works (especially in the domain of research), assistance in the organisation of lectures and other courses of the other members of the Teaching and Research Unit, support in the planning and performing of oral exams and in the correction of written tests as well as the independent preparation and supervision of practical courses and exercise classes.
AnforderungenA full university degree in a field corresponding to the tasks outlined above will be required, as well as a final university certificate which satisfies the conditions specified in the doctoral degree regulations of our Faculty.
Additional prerequisites are: the willingness to collaborate actively with both faculty members and graduate and undergraduate students in the team, good formal and practical computing skills and the readiness to participate in the independent conception and implementation of software prototypes (using e.g., Java, Web technologies and DBMS), conducting user studies, and statistical evaluations. The prospective candidate should demonstrate the following language capabilities: a good command of English as working language, a willingness to acquire some proficiency in German as the language of undergraduate tuition.
Our research and teaching activities are embedded in a culture of team spirit and collaboration. The Teaching and Research Unit maintains close working relations in Germany and abroad, to which the new team member is asked to contribute.
The Institute for Informatics, situated in the heart of Munich, close to the English Garden, is dynamic and clearly structured and works with a high degree of interdisciplinarity. The Institute for Informatics and the LMU Munich are committed to increasing the proportion of women among academic staff and strongly encourage female researchers to apply.
