Junior Professorship in Numerical Mathematics (W1 with tenure track leading to W2)

Leipzig University | Leipzig

Classification: Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing

We are looking for a young scientist with a very good research profile in a current field of numerical mathematics. The excellent research activity should be proven by publications in internationally important journals. In addition to cooperating with colleagues at the Mathematical Institute, the future holder of the position is also expected to be willing to work closely with the resident Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences. Besides teaching students of mathematics, the duties of the position in particular include involvement in the teacher training programmes in Mathematics. Junior professorships should be seen as opportunities for further qualification. This call is therefore aimed at applicants who, having completed a good doctoral degree (with the honour magna cum laude or higher), wish to obtain further qualification and have not completed a habilitation. If the applicant was employed as research or graduate assistant prior to or after completing his or her doctorate, then the doctorate and employment phases should have lasted no more than six years in total. The junior professorship is initially limited to three years. It will be extendable by a further three years subject to successful intermediate evaluation according to the Regulations on the Interim Evaluation Procedure for Junior Professors at Leipzig University (ZEvaO). No later than five years after employment commences, a tenure evaluation will be conducted under the Regulations on the Constitution, Procedure and Evaluation of Tenure Track Professorships at Leipzig University (TTO). The evaluation procedure is based on a binding, mutual evaluation agreement concluded at the start of employment, which sets out the development goals and expectations with regard to the professor’s individual performance in the categories of research, teaching, knowledge transfer as well as academic and non-university commitment. After successful tenure evaluation, appointment to a permanent W2 professorship pursuant to Section 60(2) of the Saxon Higher Education Act (SächsHSG) will take place without readvertising the vacancy. The job holder’s rights and obligations are regulated by the SächsHSG and the Saxon Service Regulations for Higher Education Institutions (DAVOHS). Applicants must meet the requirements of § 64 SächsHSG. Leipzig University is committed to gender equality. Severely disabled persons are encouraged to apply and will be given preference in the case of equal suitability.
