Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences offers a range of engineering, economics, health and human sciences courses to over 5,800 students across two sites. As a family-friendly university on a green campus that is one of the loveliest in Germany, we offer attractive working conditions. Magdeburg, the City on the Elbe and once an imperial residence, has always appealed to creative minds from the sciences, culture and politics. This is equally true of our second location: the Hanseatic town of Stendal, the birthplace of Winckelmann and the capital of Brick Gothic.
Subject to the availability of funding, Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences is seeking to fill, at the earliest opportunity, the following post in the Department of Engineering and Industrial Design – Institute of Electrical Engineering: W2 Professor of Human-Technology Interaction (m/w/o)
The post holder will, for a total of 16 semester hours per semester, be responsible for teaching the subject at introductory and on a more in-depth level with application to rehabilitation, on the Bachelor’s degree course in “Human-Technology Interaction”, as well as for the supervision of final dissertations, until 31.12.2023. Above all, the teaching will comprise classes on neuro- and cognition psychological as well as human biological-anatomical and sensory neuroscientific principles, on rehabilitation psychology, and in particular on health and sickness behaviour, and needs assessment as well as acceptance research and participatory decision-making. A close relationship in terms of content to rehabilitation psychology topics in a field of practice with a strong requirement for research on human-technology interaction, e.g. neuropsychology, geriatrics, paediatrics or orthopaedics as well as industrial, organisational and business psychology is desirable.
