Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty II

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin (TU Ber­lin) - Fac­ulty II – Math­em­at­ics and Nat­ural Sci­ences – Insti­tute of Math­em­at­ics invites applic­a­tions for a

Uni­ver­sity Pro­fes­sor - salary grade W3

in the field of "Math­em­at­ics – Applied Dif­fer­en­tial Geo­metry".

Work­ing field:

The pos­i­tion requires research and teach­ing in the area of dif­fer­en­tial geo­metry, prefer­ably cov­er­ing the full span from basic research to devel­op­ing new applic­a­tions e.g., in com­puter graph­ics, phys­ics, or archi­tec­ture. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate must par­ti­cip­ate act­ively in research within the SFB/Trans­re­gio 109 "Dis­cret­iz­a­tion in Geo­metry and Dynam­ics". Teach­ing will be required in all math­em­at­ical degree pro­grams (includ­ing under­gradu­ate) and in the ser­vice teach­ing of math­em­at­ics for other pro­grams. Involve­ment in the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School (BMS) is desir­able. Can­did­ates should be able to teach in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Fur­ther­more, 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.

Of par­tic­u­lar interest are col­lab­or­a­tions in Ber­lin's new Cluster of Excel­lence "MATH+ - The BER­LIN MATH­EM­AT­ICS RESEARCH CEN­TER". Con­tri­bu­tion to this joint pro­ject is expec­ted, in par­tic­u­lar in the "Emer­ging Field" "Digital Shapes".


Suc­cess­ful applic­ants must ful­fill the require­ments for appoint­ment at the pro­fessor level in com­pli­ance with § 100 Ber­lHG (Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act). These include a com­pleted aca­demic edu­ca­tion in math­em­at­ics or a com­par­able dis­cip­line, qual­i­fied achieve­ments in research (doc­tor­ate in math­em­at­ics), addi­tional aca­demic achieve­ments and ped­ago­gical-didactic qual­i­fic­a­tions, demon­strated by teach­ing exper­i­ence and visu­al­ized in a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for fur­ther inform­a­tion see TUB Web­site, quick access 144242).

Can­did­ates should have an inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible pro­file based on excel­lent achieve­ments in cur­rent math­em­at­ical research in the field of dif­fer­en­tial geo­metry as demon­strated in rel­ev­ant pub­lic­a­tions in peer-reviewed journ­als. She or he should be able to rep­res­ent the field in research and teach­ing. Rel­ev­ant exper­i­ence in teach­ing, includ­ing the super­vi­sion of Bach­elor's, Mas­ter's and PhD theses, as well as exper­i­ence in admin­is­trat­ive duties and exper­i­ence in third party fun­ded and joint research pro­jects is expec­ted. The area of research expert­ise should allow co-oper­a­tions with the cur­rent pro­fess­ors at the Insti­tute of Math­em­at­ics, in par­tic­u­lar the “Geo­metry and Math­em­at­ical Phys­ics” group, as well as par­ti­cip­a­tion in cur­rent (e.g. SFB/Trans­re­gio "Dis­cret­iz­a­tion in Geo­metry and Dynam­ics") and future col­lab­or­at­ive research activ­it­ies.

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.

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is a cer­ti­fied fam­ily-friendly higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tion, and our Dual Career Ser­vice offers assist­ance to you and your fam­ily when relo­cat­ing to Ber­lin. Applic­a­tions from abroad are expli­citely wel­come.
