[DMANET] Leader of a Junior Research Group at the University of Würzburg, Germany

The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of
Würzburg invites applications for the position of a

Leader of a Junior Research Group

starting October 1, 2017 (or as soon as possible thereafter) for a
maximum of 5 years. The research group consists of the leader, a
postdoc, and a PhD position (50%). Payment will be according to scale
E14 of the Collective Agreement for the Public Service of German Federal
States (TV-L). We are looking for an excellent young researcher from
one of the following two areas:

Discrete Optimization Strategies for Applications


Computational Sciences --
Algorithms for Applications in the Natural and Life Sciences
(efficient implementation of mathematical models from the
natural and life sciences on high-performance computers).

The research group is expected to strengthen the links between the
Institute of Mathematics and the Institute of Computer Science.
Experience with interdisciplinary research cooperations (e.g., in
biology, medicine, or physics) is a plus. The position comes with mild
teaching duties (5 contact hours per week) within the B.Sc. and M.Sc.
programs of the Faculty. The group leader is expected to hold a PhD (or
an equivalent degree) with very good grades, a strong publication
record, and experience in an international research environment.

Würzburg is a beautiful town in the wine region of Lower Franconia,
just 90 train minutes from Frankfurt airport. More than a quarter
of the 120,000 inhabitants of Würzburg are students. The University
and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science have been growing
dynamically over the last few years, partially thanks to the Bavarian
digitalization initiative.

The junior research group is part of the "Excellent Ideas" program of
the University of Würzburg:

The University of Würzburg is an equal opportunity employer. As such,
we explicitly encourage applications from women. Applications from
disabled persons with essentially the same qualifications will be given

Please submit your application by _May 31, 2017_ with the usual
documents (CV, certificates, list of publications, list of modules
taught) and a short research proposal (including state of the
art, potential research links to the Faculty and the University,
research plan, milestones) as pdf files via

Further information will be requested in the submission process.
