Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Mathe­ma­tics

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Chair (W2) of Mathe­ma­tics (W2 with ten­ure track)

As part of the Ten­ure Track Pro­gramme, the Faculty of Mathe­ma­tics invi­tes app­li­ca­ti­ons for the
Chair (W2) of Mathe­ma­tics (W2 with ten­ure track) initi­ally limi­ted to a six-year con­tract as a tem­porary public offi­cial, to be fil­led at the ear­liest pos­si­ble date. In being appoin­ted to the chair, eva­lua­tion cri­te­ria will be mutually agreed upon, which will be eva­lua­ted by a faculty-wide and school-wide com­mis­sion at the latest in the fifth year of the chair. Fol­lo­wing a posi­tive eva­lua­tion, a per­ma­nent Chair (W2) of Mathe­ma­tics will be gran­ted without a rene­wed selec­tion pro­cess.

Work­ing field:

The Faculty of Mathe­ma­tics, which has two rese­arch prio­rity areas: "Dis­crete Struc­tu­res" (alge­bra, geo­me­try and opti­mi­sa­tion) as well as "Par­tial Dif­fe­ren­tial Equa­ti­ons and their app­lica-tions" (ana­ly­sis, nume­ri­cal mathe­ma­tics, sto­cha­s­tics and sci­en­ti­fic com­pu­ta­tion), is loo­king for an out­stan­ding sci­en­tist who has a pro­ven track record in a cur­rent field of pure or app­lied mathe-matics and who will streng­t­hen one of the two rese­arch lines. The suc­cess­ful can­di­date should coope­rate with col­leagues wit­hin mathe­ma­tics but also in other spe­cia­list areas at TU Dres­den to initiate coor­di­na­ted third-party fun­ded pro­jects. In teaching, we expect you to be invol­ved in all of the faculty's cour­ses of study as well as in non-mathe­ma­ti­cal cour­ses of study, and to pro­vide teaching ser­vices in both Ger­man and Eng­lish. We expect you to be actively invol­ved in aca­de­mic self-admi­nis­tra­tion and in the aca­de­mic com­mit­tees of the faculty.


Essen­tial ele­ments of the eva­lua­tion will be the sci­en­ti­fic suc­cess in the form of publi­ca­ti­ons, the suc­cess­ful acqui­si­tion of third-party funds, pro­mo­tion of young sci­en­tists and posi­tively eva­lua­ted teaching per­for­mance in Ger­man and Eng­lish at the level of a W2 chair.
App­li­cants must ful­fil the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (Hig­her Edu­ca­tion Act of the Free State of Sax­ony – SächsHSFG).

What we of­fer:

TU Dres­den sup­ports ten­ure track pro­fes­sors with a pro­gramme spe­ci­fi­cally tailo­red to their needs. Men­to­ring, various coa­ching ses­si­ons, and spe­cial con­ti­nuing edu­ca­tion pro­gram­mes and sup­port offers pro­vide active pro­fes­sio­nal gui­dance throughout the dura­tion of the tem­porary chair.

TU Dres­den seeks to employ more female pro­fes­sors. Hence we par­ti­cu­larly encou­rage women to apply. App­li­ca­ti­ons from disa­b­led can­di­da­tes or those with addi­tio­nal sup­port needs are very wel­come. The Uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a Dual Career Ser­vice.
