Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty II

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin, Fac­ulty II - Math­em­at­ics and Nat­ural Sci­ences, invites applic­a­tions for a pos­i­tion of a

Uni­versity Pro­fessor - salary grade W3

in the field of "Math­em­at­ics – Applied Math­em­at­ics".

Work­ing field:

The pos­i­tion requires research and teach­ing in the area of Applied Math­em­at­ics with a strong inter­dis­cip­lin­ary focus. At least one of the fol­low­ing research top­ics needs to be addressed:
  • Applied Func­tional Ana­lysis
  • Applied Har­monic Ana­lysis
  • Applied Stochastic Ana­lysis
  • Dis­crete Optim­iz­a­tion
  • Dynam­ical Sys­tems
  • Inverse Prob­lems
  • Math­em­at­ical Ima­ging and Data Sci­ence
  • Math­em­at­ical Con­tinuum and Solid State Mech­an­ics
  • Math­em­at­ical Stat­ist­ics
  • Multiscale Prob­lems and Homo­gen­iz­a­tion
  • Non­lin­ear Optim­iz­a­tion
  • Non­lin­ear Par­tial Dif­fer­en­tial Equa­tions
  • Numer­ical Ana­lysis
  • Numer­ical Solu­tion of Dif­fer­en­tial Equa­tions
  • Numer­ical Lin­ear Algebra
  • Stochastic Optim­iz­a­tion
  • Uncer­tainty Quan­ti­fic­a­tion
  • Vari­ational Cal­cu­lus

In case of Ber­lin’s suc­cess­ful applic­a­tion regard­ing the Cluster of Excel­lence „MATH+ - The BER­LIN MATH­EM­AT­ICS RESEARCH CEN­TER“ con­tri­bu­tion to this joint pro­ject is expec­ted. Depend­ing on the sci­entific field of the applic­ant, a par­ti­cip­a­tion in one of the „Focus Areas“ resp. „Emer­ging Fields“: “Life Sci­ences”, “Mater­i­als, Light, and Devices“, “Net­works“, “Energy and Mar­kets“, “Advanced Inform­a­tion Extrac­tion from Ima­ging Data“, “Smart Data: Mod­el­ling and Robust Ana­lyt­ics“, “Data-Driven Stochastic Mod­el­ling of Dynamic Envir­on­ments“, or “Digital Shapes“ is expec­ted.
Teach­ing will be required in all math­em­at­ical degree pro­grams (includ­ing under­gradu­ate) and in the ser­vice teach­ing of math­em­at­ics for other pro­grams. 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.


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).
We are look­ing for can­did­ates with an inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible pro­file in the area of Applied Math­em­at­ics 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 expec­ted.
The can­did­ate must rep­res­ent the area of Applied Math­em­at­ics in research and teach­ing. Applic­ants must have teach­ing exper­i­ence at uni­versity level. Addi­tional exper­i­ence in advising and super­vising Bach­elor, Mas­ter and doc­toral stu­dents as well as exper­i­ence in aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion is expec­ted.
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. Act­ive par­ti­cip­a­tion in the Ber­lin Inter­na­tional Gradu­ate School in Model and Sim­u­la­tion based Research (BIMoS) and the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School (BMS) is also desired.
