Chair of Digitized forestry processes and systems // 29 February 2024The Institute of Forest Utilization and Forest Technology, Department of Forest Sciences, Faculty of Environmental Sciences at TUD Dresden University of Technology invites applications for the Chair (W2) of Digitized forestry processes and systems to be filled at the earliest possible date. The Institute is looking for an internationally recognized individual with comprehensive competencies in the field of forest sciences, in-depth knowledge and experience in information technologies, and production systems modeling and simulation, as evidenced by relevant publications in top-tier publication venues. Your publications, international networking, and teaching evaluation results serve as evidence of this. Your research achievements have high development potential. In addition, the Institute expects extensive experience in independent teaching and success in acquiring third-party funding. The successful candidate (m/f/x) will be dedicated to the development, integration and optimization of digitalized processes within forest-based, biogenic value networks with special attention to interfaces and human work in research, teaching and public transfer. The Institute's research is based on Industry 4.0 approaches and methods for the purpose of automating machines and processes. These methods include, among others, sensor technology and data-driven technologies in forestry. Sustainability, resource efficiency, protection of climate and biodiversity in the production of wood and non-wood products as well as the provision of other ecosystem services are important basic principles. Teaching essentially includes training in the bachelor's and master's degree program "Forest Sciences", in the master's degree program "Wood Technology and Wood Economics" and in other degree programs at TUD Dresden University of Technology. In particular, contents in the fields of automation of forestry processes and the application of data-driven methods are to be taught. Furthermore, forest development planning, stand treatment and personnel management under the influence of digitalization are relevant.
