[DMANET] W2-Professorships in Mathematics and quatitative Economics at HCM (Bonn)

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) at the University of Bonn
brings together researchers in Theoretical and Applied Mathematics, and
Mathematical Economics. In this framework, the center is looking forward
to filling up to four

("Bonn Junior Fellows")

within the next few years. These are temporary positions for a period of
five years. To some of these positions, a tenure-track option is
associated, and, in exceptional cases, a position may be tenured

The University of Bonn is an equal opportunity employer and is committed
to increase the number of female professors in disciplines where they
are underrepresented, in particular on tenured positions. It is
therefore intended to fill about half of the positions offered with
women. Women are strongly encouraged to apply. Preference will be given
to suitably qualified women or persons with disabilities, all other
considerations being equal.
The general conditions of employment are according to § 36 of the Higher
Education Act of North Rhine-Westphalia (Hochschulgesetz des Landes

The professorships.
The professorships intend to encourage independent research by
outstanding young researchers, in analogy to the research groups of the
"Max-Planck-Society" or the "Emmy-Noether-Program" of the German
Research Foundation. The professorships are endowed with travel and
guest funds, and with a postdoc position during the initial period. Bonn
Junior Fellows also participate in the additional resources of the
Hausdorff Center. Professors are encouraged to supervise doctoral
students. For an initial period, teaching obligations amount to four
hours per week during semesters.

The candidates.
We are looking for young researchers holding a doctoral degree who are
about to develop their own research agenda and who have already
demonstrated their scientific independence by relevant publications.
Candidates should have some international research experience. German
language skills are not required.

Research focus.
We seek candidates who fit into the broad spectrum of the Cluster of

Depending on the respective research focus, candidates become members of
the "Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences" or of the "Faculty of
Law and Economics" at the University of Bonn.
Not all positions will be assigned at the same time; there will be
several separate selection rounds.

The deadline for the third application round is 11th October 2014.
Expected starting date is not later than 1st October 2015. Deadlines for
the following rounds and further details will be published at:
