[DMANET] Assistant Professorship with Tenure Track for the field of "Discrete Optimization" at TU Berlin

The Institute of Mathematics at TU Berlin invites applications for a

Junior Pro­fess­or­ship - salary grade W1 - with tenure track
for the field of "Dis­crete Optim­iz­a­tion in the Con­text of Big Data".

Work­ing field:

The pos­i­tion requires research and teach­ing and an inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible pro­file in the area of Dis­crete Optim­iz­a­tion.
The research focus of the pos­i­tion is expec­ted to be a branch of Dis­crete Optim­iz­a­tion at the inter­face with the area of Algorithms for Big Data. Fur­ther­more, cooper­a­tions with the cur­rent pro­fess­ors at the Insti­tute of Math­em­at­ics as well as particip­a­tion in exist­ing and future col­lab­or­at­ive research pro­jects of all math­em­at­ical insti­tutes in Ber­lin (Research Cen­ter MATHEON, Ein­stein Cen­ter for Math­em­at­ics Ber­lin, Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School etc.) are expec­ted.
Teach­ing will be required in all math­em­at­ical degree pro­grams and mod­er­ately in the ser­vice teach­ing of math­em­at­ics for other pro­grams. Teach­ing require­ments shall be met in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Can­did­ates are expec­ted to super­vise stu­dents' theses as well as to par­ti­cip­ate in the aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion of the uni­versity.

Inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible research res­ults in the area of Dis­crete Optim­iz­a­tion have to be proven through rel­ev­ant pub­lic­a­tions. Exper­i­ence in acquir­ing and car­ry­ing out pro­jects and pro­ject alli­ances involving third-party fund­ing are desir­able.

How to ap­ply:

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin strives to increase the pro­por­tion of women in research and teach­ing and there­fore strongly encour­ages qual­i­fied female research­ers to apply. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored.

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is a cer­ti­fied fam­ily-friendly higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tion, and our Dual Career Ser­vice offers assist­ance to you and your fam­ily when relo­cat­ing to Ber­lin.
