Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Institute of Acoustics and Speech Communication

The Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Institute of Acoustics and Speech Communication for the Cluster of Excellence “Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-theLoop” (CeTI), seeks to fill the

Junior Professorship (W1) in Smart Materials for Human–Computer Interaction

at the earliest possible date, for a limited four-year contract. If the interim evaluation is positive, the employment contract will be extended to a total of six years. Evaluation criteria mutually agreed upon when the position is accepted will form the basis of the evaluation procedures. Essential elements of the evaluation will be the scientific success in the form of subject-relevant and high-quality publications, successful acquisition of third-party research funds as well as related project management, promotion of young scientists as well as the development of innovative teaching contents for the field of “Smart Materials for Human–Computer Interaction” with positively evaluated teaching performances.

Research at CeTI aims at achieving significant breakthroughs for enhancing collaborations between humans and machines in real, virtual, and remote environments. The advertised Junior Professorship should bridge the gap and establish new links between material science and human–computer interaction (HCI). Special emphasis can be placed on advanced materials for novel user interfaces, shape-adaptive interactive systems, organic user interfaces, or morphing materials for HCI. The field is highly interdisciplinary and crucial for enhancing human-machine collaboration.

You will co-operate with scientists from the CeTI, the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering as well as the Faculty of Mechanical Science and Engineering and contribute to coordinated third-party research projects. We expect your commitment to engage in the study programs of both faculties and to perform teaching tasks. Your teaching tasks will initially comprise four academic hours per week. Your duties include active participation in academic selfadministration. You should have a clear interest and some experience in researching at the interface between material science and HCI. Applicants must fulfil the employment qualification requirements of § 63 of the Act on the Autonomy of Institutions of Higher Education in the Free State of Saxony (SächsHSFG).

For further questions, please contact the head of the hiring committee, Prof. Ercan Altinsoy (phone: +49 351 463-34253, email: ercan.altinsoy@tu-dresden.de).

The Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Institute of Acoustics and Speech Communication for the Cluster of Excellence “Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-theLoop” (CeTI) seeks to fill the

Junior Professorship (W1) in Social Affective Touch

at the earliest possible date, for a limited four-year contract. If the interim evaluation is positive, the employment contract will be extended to a total of six years.

Evaluation criteria mutually agreed upon when the position is accepted will form the basis of the evaluation procedures. Essential elements of the evaluation will be the scientific success in the form of subject-relevant and high-quality publications, successful acquisition of third-party research funds as well as related project management, promotion of young scientists as well as the development of innovative teaching contents for the field of “Social Affective Touch” with positively evaluated teaching performances.

Research at CeTI aims at achieving significant breakthroughs for enhancing collaborations between humans and machines in real, virtual and remote environments. In humans, the social affective dimension of touch conveys important information about the emotions and intentions of the
interaction partner. It is integral to human’s conscious experience of haptic sensations. On the one hand, such information is important and needs to be recognized by the machines that collaborate with humans. On the other hand, a subfield of haptic technology also focuses on the design of
devices and systems (e.g., by manipulating force, warmth, softness, or duration) to elicit, enhance, or modulate the emotional state of humans by means of the sense of touch. The field of social affective touch is highly interdisciplinary and crucial for enhancing human-machine interactions. You will cooperate with scientists from the CeTI, the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering as well as the Faculty of Psychology and contribute to coordinated third-party research projects. We expect your commitment to engage in the study programs of the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering or Faculty of Psychology and to perform teaching tasks. Your teaching tasks will initially comprise four academic hours per week. Your duties include active participation in
academic self-administration.

We are looking for a dedicated young scientist whose research aims at either (i) understanding psychological and neurocognitive mechanisms of social affective touch or (ii) developing social affective haptic technologies for human-machine interactions. You should have a clear interest and some experience in researching at the interface between human processes of social affective touch and technologies of affective haptics. Applicants must fulfil the employment qualification requirements of § 63 of the Act on the Autonomy of Institutions of Higher Education in the Free State of Saxony (SächsHSFG).
