TIB, being part of the Leib­niz Rese­arch Asso­ci­ation, is with around 550 employ­ees one of the lar­gest tech­nical inform­a­tion cen­tres in Ger­many, hav­ing three main func­tions:
1. Act­ing in the capa­city of the Leib­niz Inform­a­tion Centre for Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy, our for­ward-look­ing ser­vices secure the infra­struc­tural require­ments for pro­vid­ing rese­arch­ers in sci­ence and indus­try with high-qual­ity inform­a­tion and lit­er­at­ure.
2. Car­ry­ing out cut­ting edge rese­arch to fur­ther expand TIB’s role as a Ger­man inform­a­tion centre for the digit­isa­tion of sci­ence and tech­no­logy.
3. Offer lib­rary ser­vices for the Leib­niz Uni­ver­sity Han­nover.

Postdoc­toral Research­ers (m/f/d)

to work in the Sci­entific Data Man­age­ment Group led by Prof. (Univ. Simón Bolívar) Dr. Maria-Esther Vidal at the earli­est pos­sible date.

The pos­i­tions are ini­tially lim­ited to 2 years with envi­sioned exten­sion. The reg­u­lar weekly work­ing time is 39.8 hours (full-time). The pos­i­tions are gen­er­ally suit­able for part-time work. The remu­ner­a­tion is based on pay scale group 13 TV-L.

In TIB’s Research and Devel­op­ment Depart­ment, you have the oppor­tun­ity to fur­ther your sci­entific devel­op­ment in a dynamic and excel­lent research envir­on­ment. We provide a sci­en­tific­ally and intel­lec­tu­ally inspir­ing envir­on­ment with an entre­pren­eur­ial mind­set embed­ded in a lead­ing tech­nical uni­versity and one of the largest tech­nical inform­a­tion centres being part of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation.

The research depart­ment at the TIB is rel­at­ively young and offers many oppor­tun­it­ies. Cur­rently, there are five research groups in the depart­ment: Data Sci­ence and Digital Lib­rar­ies, Sci­entific Data Man­age­ment, Know­ledge Infra­struc­tures, Learn­ing and Skills Ana­lyt­ics and Visual Ana­lyt­ics. Com­mon to all research groups is the vis­ion to rethink the rep­res­ent­a­tion and pro­vi­sion of data and inform­a­tion and to organ­ize them in an Open Research Know­ledge Graph (ORKG) in the future. There is a close cooper­a­tion with the Research Cen­ter L3S of Leib­niz Uni­versity Han­nover - the L3S is one of the world's lead­ing research insti­tutes in the fields of Web & Data Sci­ence. Last but not least, we attach great import­ance to an open and cre­at­ive work­ing atmo­sphere in which it is fun to work.

Fur­ther­more, we offer
  • Fund­ing for neces­sary equip­ment, con­fer­ence and research visit travel
  • Can­did­ates will work in the con­text of a national, European or inter­na­tional research and innov­a­tion pro­ject
  • A port­fo­lio of tech­no­logy com­pon­ents to build on, includ­ing ORKG, Open­Re­, TIB AV-Portal, DBpe­ and other
  • A mod­ern work­place in a cent­ral loc­a­tion of Han­over with a col­legial, attract­ive and ver­sat­ile work­ing envir­on­ment
  • Flex­ible work­ing hours (flexi­time) as well as offers for recon­cil­ing work and fam­ily life, such as mobile work

  • Dis­count for employ­ees in the canteens of the Stu­den­ten­werk Han­nover as well as the pos­sib­il­ity to use the vari­ous offers of the Uni­versity Sports Han­nover
  • A salary in pay scale group 13 accord­ing to the pro­vi­sions of the col­lect­ive agree­ment for the pub­lic ser­vice in Ger­many (TV-L)

If you are inter­ested, ques­tions regard­ing the pos­i­tions can be addressed to Prof. (Univ. Simón Bolívar) Dr. Maria-Esther Vidal, head of Sci­entific Data Man­age­ment Group, by mail at
