The Institut für Gartenbauliche Produktionssysteme (IGPS), Phytophotonics department, invites applications for the position of a Scientific Employee (m/f/d) in the context of the call for proposals "Innovative Teaching and Learning Concepts: Innovation plus, Module Biosystems Engineering" (Salary Scale 13 TV-L, 25 %) to start on April 1, 2023. The position is limited to 12 months. The scope of the job corresponds to 25 % of the collectively agreed working hours.


As part of the call for proposals "Innovative teaching and learning concepts: Innovation plus" a project for the realization of an innovative seminar part for the bachelor module "Biosystems Engineering" was acquired. The position is responsible for the independent implementation of the project.

The tasks include the commissioning of two portal systems for the automated management and monitoring of raised beds. Subsequently, series of experiments on the influence of various physical growth factors (e.g. soil moisture, light availability) will be developed and corresponding teaching and learning materials will be produced. In particular, accompanying digital content for teaching is to be created, such as an introduction to the system in video format with subsequent digital knowledge testing.

A Student Assistant is also assigned to the project to support the work and will be directed by the advertised position.

The project is based in the Phytophotonics department. We offer a motivating, dynamic working atmosphere at the interdisciplinary interface between physics and plant sciences.

Employment requirements

A prerequisite for employment is a successfully completed scientific university degree in a technical (e.g. physics, optical technologies, engineering sciences) or plant science (e.g. plant biotechnology, horticultural sciences) field of study.

We expect a high degree of commitment and motivation, a structured way of working especially when writing teaching materials, pleasure in working independently, a good command of written and spoken German and English, and good communication skills.

The university aims to promote equality between women and men. For this purpose, the university strives to reduce under-representation in areas where a certain gender is under-represented. Women are under-represented in the salary scale of the advertised position. Therefore, qualified women are encouraged to apply. Moreover, we welcome applications from qualified men. Preference will be given to equally-qualified applicants with disabilities.

Please submit your complete application documents including letters of recommendation until January 31, 2023 to:

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover Hannover Centre for Optical Technologies (HOT) Phytophotonics Department Prof. Dr. Dag Heinemann Nienburger Str. 17 D-30167 Hannover
