TU WienWien (Österreich)
Announcement of an open position at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at Technische Universität Wien for a
Full Professor (female)
in „Complex Systems in Civil Engineering“
with a permanent contract (tenure) from 2017-10-01, according to § 98 UG.
According to TU Wien’s Plan for Advancement of Women, this announcement invites applications from women only.
The position of full professor addresses excellent scientists who work with complex systems in civil engineering, either in
the context of modern building materials or future transport infrastructure and mobility requirements.
Depending on the candidate’s qualification profile, the professorship will be associated either with the Institute of Building
Construction and Technology or the Institute of Transportation at the Faculty of Civil Engineering at TU Wien. The position
includes teaching and research in the field of either building material science or transport and mobility research, depending
on the candidate’s profile.
For an appointment in building materials science, the professorship should develop and represent a new era of building
material engineering. It should be based on current findings of directly related disciplines such as physical chemistry,
statistical physics and biology, yet stay closely related to traditional subjects of civil engineering. The position is concerned
with the optimization of traditional building materials and the development of novel ones. It encompasses building material
research in the broadest sense, from the macroscopic scale down to those of nano and picometers. This concerns topics
such as traditional composite materials, concretes with minimized cement content, molecularly improved binding agents,
as well as biogenic materials and the study of biological systems as a source for inspiration of innovative design ideas and
intelligent imitation. A state-of-the-art laboratory for building materials is assigned to the professorship.
For an appointment in holistic transport and mobility planning, the professorship focuses on the analysis and development
of solutions for sustainable improvement of well-established and emerging transport and mobility systems particularly in
terms of digitization of traffic. The research area of holistic transport and mobility planning includes traditional transport
systems in close relation to spatial planning as well as approaches from human and social sciences, combining all these
elements into comprehensive concepts. The professorship develops systemic concepts and approaches to modern
transport and traffic infrastructures while considering long-term environmental, human and demographic demands as well
as all economic and ecological challenges of sustainable and efficient handling of mobility requirements.
The teaching syllabus of the professorship covers all aspects of the respective field in the Bachelor’s and Master’s
programs Civil and Environmental Engineering. The successful candidate is expected to acquire external funding and to
collaborate with other working groups at TU Wien in teaching and research.
