[DMANET] Job offer


FernUniversität in Hagen is the only publicly funded distance teaching university in the German-speaking region. It offers flexible courses of study, primarily in parallel with career and family. In addition to profile-oriented research, FernUniversität promotes interdisciplinary research foci. It is furthermore committed to the promotion of gender-specific aspects.
The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science is inviting applications for an
Assistant Professorship (Juniorprofessur) - W 1
Analysis on Discrete Structures
which is to be filled as soon as possible for a period of three years initially. After a successful intermediate evaluation, we plan to extend the post for a further three years.
We are looking for someone with good didactic skills who already has international academic standing.
We expect the applicant's research to have earned them academic standing in a field which will strengthen the teaching of analysis at FernUniversität in Hagen. Her/his research must focus on the analysis of discrete structures, such as graphs or simplicial complexes, for example. Particularly desirable are the fields of differential geometry on graphs, hypergraphs or fractals, spectral graph theory or methods of operator or potential theory for elliptic and parabolic equations on graphs. Substantiated experience in application-oriented collaborations with computer sciences or physics is advantageous. The successful candidate will also be expected to engage in activities to attract third-party funding.
The teaching component involves giving courses for the mathematical study programmes including courses on differential geometry. The applicant should substantiate that she/he will be able to give a course which is taught in German within a short period of time. Furthermore, examinations must be conducted in German.
The teaching at FernUniversität is embedded in an electronic communication environment which all teaching staff must use. The post holder will be involved in the development and the execution of network-based teaching in line with the university's quality standards.
The qualifications necessary for appointment are academic achievements pursuant to Sec. 36 Hochschulgesetz NRW (Higher Education Act of North-Rhine Westphalia).

The deadline for applications is 14. February 2016 (received at FernUniversität in Hagen).
FernUniversität is striving to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and therefore expressly requests suitably qualified female academics to apply. Women will be preferred on the basis of equal qualifications, abilities and subject-related performance, unless there are good reasons for preferring an outstanding male candidate.
Applicants are requested to also take account of gender-specific aspects in research and teaching and in the support of junior academics in a way appropriate to the discipline.
Applications from persons with disabilities are expressly desired. Part-time employment may be possible.
Applications with the usual documents must be sent to the Rektor der FernUniversität
in Hagen, 58084 Hagen or by email to rektorbuero@fernuni-hagen.de.
