CODE University of Applied Sciences offers a full time

Professorship in Software Engineering

Our Software Engineering study program is designed to provide a solid foundation for the digital pioneers of the future and offers many opportunities for in-depth specialization.

You are expected to and are experienced in teaching computer sciences and working on teams with our students to apply technologies to real-life examples and offer guidance to turn these ideas into practical experiences together with the existing Software Engineering academic team.

CODE’s teaching model is radically student driven and project oriented. Teaching at CODE includes intense mentoring processes, which require responsiveness and dedication. Candidates will work as mentors for a wide range of student-driven projects together with industry and non-profit partners.

Working in an interdisciplinary environment in this position requires bridging to our Interaction Design and Product Management study programs. We also emphasize critical reflection upon challenges and consequences for society — which finds its place in our liberal arts program (STS).

You need to be comfortable with communicating and teaching in English; international experience is an asset. German language skills are not a requirement.

Which other criteria are important?

Candidates must meet the formal requirements as stated in §100 Berliner Hochschulgesetz. This typically requires five years of relevant work experience, at least three of them outside higher education. The candidate’s academic qualification for a professorship is usually demonstrated by a doctorate or a Ph.D. Pedagogical experience is also required.

Who are we looking for?

CODE values different perspectives and is committed to a respectful, inclusive and diverse work environment and encourages people of all genders, backgrounds, and origins to apply. We especially welcome applications from women and people from groups underrepresented in today’s academia. Qualified candidates with disabilities will be favored.
We are looking for versatile, dedicated, and widely interested and interesting individuals who are open to learning, to listening with curiosity, and to both giving and receiving feedback as part of routine reflection. We have a strong commitment to our community, to supporting and learning from each other, to development, and to building a familial work atmosphere. Candidates would join a university startup in the center of Berlin where the foundations are still being laid.
CODE offers full- and part-time professorships.

    Just as our learning concept is centered on a challenge-based approach, where students learn by working in transdisciplinary teams, so is our team.

    We are not looking for ready made applicants with perfect CVs. What we expect is that you are as excited as we are about CODE and its upcoming milestones

  • Be a team player

    We are a small team and have to rely on each other. You won`t get an agenda with tasks every day, but instead have the freedom to contribute your strengths.

  • Be open-minded

    The first idea is not always the best. So, be open-minded and don`t try to only push your own goals.
