Please note: The application deadline of the position has been extended to August 2, 2018.

Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin
Fac­ulty II - Math­em­at­ics and Nat­ural Sci­ences
Insti­tute of Math­em­at­ics

invi­tes app­lic­a­tions for a pos­i­tion of a

Junior Pro­fess­or­ship
salary grade W1 with W3 ten­ure-track option
in the field of "Math­em­at­ics – Dis­crete Optim­iz­a­tion".

With this pos­i­tion, TU Ber­lin espe­cially addresses and aims to pro­mote young sci­ent­ists.
For that reason, this pos­i­tion will be a tem­por­ary W1 junior pro­fess­or­ship with an
eval­u­ation after 3 years. In case of a second suc­cess­ful ten­ure-track eval­u­ation, this
pos­i­tion will lead to a per­man­ent W3 pro­fess­or­ship (full professorship) after 6 years.

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. 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 (includ­ing under­gradu­ate),
in par­tic­u­lar in the area of algorithmic dis­crete math­em­at­ics, and in the ser­vice teach­ing
of math­em­at­ics for other pro­grams. Teach­ing require­ments shall be met in Eng­lish and
Ger­man (after few years). Can­did­ates are expec­ted to super­vise stu­dents' theses on
bach­elor, mas­ter, and PhD level as well as to par­ti­cip­ate in the aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion
of the uni­versity.


Can­did­ates must ful­fill the require­ments for appoint­ment at the junior pro­fessor level in
com­pli­ance with § 102a Ber­lHG (Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act). These include a
com­pleted degree in math­em­at­ics or a com­par­able sub­ject, a doc­tor­ate in math­em­at­ics
or a com­par­able sub­ject, a par­tic­u­lar qual­i­fic­a­tion for aca­demic work usu­ally attested by
the excel­lent qual­ity of a doc­tor­ate, and ped­ago­gical aptitude, demon­strated by
teach­ing exper­i­ence and outlined in a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for fur­ther inform­a­tion see
TUB Web­site, quick access 144242).

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

aca­demic teach­ing staff's abil­ity to con­duct classes in Eng­lish. Tech­nis­che Uni­versität
