The University of Liechtenstein invites applications for the new

Hilti Chair for Data and Application Security

at the rank of full professor. The chair is an endowed chair located at the Department of Information Systems. While the chair will benefit from its relations to Hilti as a leading global company (see: www.hilti.com) the chair will be independent in all its activities. 

Applicants must have superior academic credentials, including a record of scholarly impact evidenced by journal and conference publications, excellent teaching ability, and a record in professional academic and institutional service.

The chair will have the opportunity to build a world-class research group focusing on data and application security in one of the most livable and beautiful areas of Europe. Liechtenstein is a prosperous highly entrepreneurial economic area in the heart of Europe. The dynamic alpine micro state is home to people from over 100 nationalities, and the country has one of the highest gross domestic products per capita worldwide. It has a diversified economy focusing on both product and service innovation, and it is home to headquarters of leading international companies as well as a lively scene of start-up companies (see: www.liechtenstein.li).

The chair will make important contributions to foster cyber security as a foundation for digital innovation and transformation, and will collaborate closely with the other research groups at the department, such as Business Process Management, Technology and Innovation, and Data Science. The chair will also collaborate with neighboring disciplines at the university, such as law, finance, and entrepreneurship, and it will establish strong relations to leading scholars and practitioners in the rea of cyber security around the world. The chair will be responsible for developing and leading a major in Data and Application Security as part of our information systems master's program and is expected to conduct high quality research and publish in internationally renowned academic journals. The chair will further be expected to develop strong ties to the regional industry through intensive knowledge transfer, and to develop a strong portfolio of executive education in data and application security.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: development and assessment of strategies and policies for data and application security, predictive modeling in forensics, malware detection, development of secure, embedded platforms, secure public cloud computing, secure network computing, security engineering and application development, and security protocols and organizational processes. Technologies like blockchain, machine learning, and advanced encryption will be part of the research portfolio of the Hilti Chair for Data and Application Security. Good knowledge of the German language will allow the candidate to successfully engage with our regional partners, and we expect candidates who do not speak German to learn the language within a period of three years.

The University of Liechtenstein is a state university according to Swiss standards, accredited by AAQ (Swiss Agency of Accreditation and Quality Assurance) and a member of AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). With over 50 years of tradition the institution has established excellent relations both nationally and internationally.

We offer a highly competitive salary, a dynamic collegiate environment with locally and internationally active researchers, as well as close cooperation with partners at other universities, governmental agencies, and industry. Our academic community works in a vibrant and innovative setting.

A Doctorate (PhD) in architecture or urban planning is required. In addition, the candidate should have excellent written and oral communication skills in German and in English as well as outstanding teamwork skills. You can work independently and you enjoy thinking and working in an interdisciplinary, cross-standard and application-oriented context. You bring teaching experience and enjoy sharing with Bachelor and Master students the new research topic of renewable architecture through innovative teachings methods.

The Institute of Architecture and Planning offers a pleasant research environment with young and motivated teams. We cultivate intensive contacts with international research and practice partners from which your work can benefit. The University of Liechtenstein offers an attractive environment both professionally and privately. In addition to a workplace situated in a very liveable region in Europe you will find, working with us, challenging tasks in a motivating atmosphere with attractive research conditions.
