Technische Universität Berlin, Faculty II - Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Institute of Mathematics invites applications for a position of a
Junior Professorship - salary grade W1
with W3 tenure-track option in the field of "Mathematics - Modeling, Simulation and Optimzation of Real World Processes".
With this position, TU Berlin especially addresses and aims to promote young scientists. For that reason, this position will be a temporary W1 junior professorship with an evaluation after 3 years. In case of a second successful tenure-track evaluation after 6 years, this position will lead to a permanent W3 professorship.
The position requires research and teaching in the area of mathematical modeling, simulation, and optimization with a strong interdisciplinary orientation. The following research areas should be addressed:
Modelling with Differential Equations
Multiscale and Inverse Problems
Sparsity/Low Order Modelling
Teaching will be required in all mathematical degree programs (including undergraduate) and in the service teaching of mathematics for other programs. Teaching obligations must be met in German and English. Candidates are expected to supervise students’ theses on Bachelor, Master and PhD level as well as to participate in the academic administration of the university.
Successful applicants must fulfill the requirements for appointment at the junior professor level in compliance with § 102a BerlHG (Berlin Higher Education Act). These include a completed academic education in mathematics or a comparable discipline, qualified achievements in research (doctorate in mathematics) and pedagogical-didactic qualifications, demonstrated by teaching experience and visualized in a teaching portfolio (for further information see TUB Website, quick access 144242).
We are looking for candidates with an already internationally visible profile in the area of mathematical modeling, simulation, and optimization with a strong interdisciplinary orientation and research results that have been published in refereed journals. Experience in raising funds from national and international external sources and in collaborative research projects is desirable.
The candidate must represent the area of mathematical modeling, simulation, and optimization in research and teaching. Applicants must have some teaching experience on university level as well as some additional experience in advising and supervising Bachelor, Master and doctoral students. Experience in academic administration is desirable.
The area of research expertise should allow co-operations with the current professors at the Institute of Mathematics as well as participation in current and future collaborative research activities, such as CRC 1029 “TurbIn”, CRC 910 “Control of self-organizing nonlinear systems: Theoretical methods and concepts of application”, CRC/TRR 109 “Discretization in Geometry und Dynamics” or CRC/TRR 154 “Mathematical Modeling, Simulation and Optimization at the Example of Gas Networks” respectively further collaborative projects. Active participation in the “Berlin International Graduate School in Model and Simulation based Research” (BIMoS) and the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) will be expected.
How to apply:
Technische Universität Berlin is determined to increase the proportion of women in research and
teaching and therefore strongly encourages qualified female researchers to apply. Qualified individuals with disabilities will be favored. The TU Berlin values the diversity of its members and is committed to the goals of equal opportunities. In the context of the strategic internationalization process, TU Berlin assumes the recruited academic teaching staff's ability to conduct classes in English.
