Universität Stuttgart / University of Stuttgart
Endowed Junior Professorship
(W1 without tenure track)
in “Structural bonding in construction”
INSTITUTE OF CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS | AT THE EARLIEST CONVENIENCE The University of Stuttgart is one of the leading technically oriented universities in Germany in one of Europe’s most vibrant high-tech and industrial areas. The university is a reliable employer, partner for technology transfer and is committed to the interdisciplinary integration of engineering, natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences based on the fundamentals of cutting-edge research at a disciplinary level.
The endowed professorship is funded by fischerwerke GmbH & Co. KG. Adhesive bonds make it possible to join resource-optimized building materials and components permanently and reliably and to establish new types of construction methods. They are therefore a key technology for joining components.
The task of the position holder is to research adhesive bonds for novel construction methods, resource-saving components and innovative materials. An interdisciplinary and close cooperation with other scientific institutions of the University of Stuttgart as well as with the benefactor is expected.
The applicant is expected to show new ways how adhesively bonded connections can be designed under durability aspects and how they can be used in practical applications based on interdisciplinary solutions. The focus of the professorship therefore is the process reliability and durability of adhesively bonded connections. This includes chemical, physical and analytical issues, too. The development of new adhesive formulations is not envisaged. The willingness to participate in interdisciplinary and coordinated research programs is required.
The realization of sophisticated numerical or experimental investigations is supported by the collegial participation in the extensive human and material resources of the Institute of Construction Materials (IWB) and the Materials Testing Institute (MPA). Active participation in the transfer of knowledge and ideas into application practice is welcomed.
The position involves teaching in study courses offered by the Faculty as well as in cooperation with other faculties, and participates in a collegial manner from the Institute's resources.
We are searching for a personality who should be distinguished by scientific publications with international visibility. Applications from individuals with recently completed doctoral degrees are explicitly encouraged.
The requirements for employment listed in § 51 Baden-Württemberg university law (LHG) apply.
