[DMANET] Bonn Junior Fellow Positions (W2) at the Hausdorf Center for Mathematics

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 three

W2-Professorships ("Bonn Junior Fellows")

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 immediately.

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 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
Excellence. 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 this application round is 9 October 2016. Expected
starting date is not later than 1 October 2017. Deadlines for the
following rounds and further details will be published at
