We are looking for someone with a strong engineering background who has deep knowledge and experience in the fields of construction, design, and rating of machine elements and industrial products. Several years of successful work in the industry would be an asset.
With regard to research, the incumbent will work in several of the following fields and possess the relevant credentials:
finite element analysis
software development in the area of engineering design and CAD
material conforming design
Her or his research should link theoretical foundations to technical applications. It is assumed that the postholder, building on the basic funding with which she or he is equipped, will seek external funding for her or his research projects. Cooperation with existing research groups within the faculty and involvement in cross-faculty focus areas as well as collaborations with non-university based research facilities would be highly welcome.
The professor‘s teaching responsibilities will include key lectures and tutorials on engineering design, CAD, machine elements, and drive technology offered in the bachelor‘s and master‘s programmes. Required lectures are generally to be held in German; additional courses may be offered in the English language to encourage international exchange.
Prerequisites for this position (according to BayHSchPG Article 7 and Article 10 para 3) are a university degree, a doctoral degree, proven excellence in teaching, and a post-doctoral qualification to teach at a professorial level (Habilitation). Alternatively, evidence of equivalent scholarly achievement, for example as a junior professor or in a non-university environment, will also be considered. The ability to teach in English is expected. Only applicants who are 51 years of age or younger can be hired as civil servants (Article 10 para 3 BayHSchPG).
The University of Bayreuth seeks to increase the proportion of women involved in research and teaching (in accordance with Article 4 para 1 sentence 1 BayHSchG) and therefore particularly welcomes female applicants. All qualifications being equal, severely disabled applicants will be given priority. The University of Bayreuth strives to further increase the diversity of its academic staff. For this reason, scholars who can help make the research and teaching profile of the University more diverse are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are highly welcome. The University of Bayreuth is a member of the best practice club Family at University, and it offers "dual career support" for career-oriented partners of highly qualified employees. In addition, an extended audit conducted by the German Rectors‘ Conference (HRK) returned a favourable review for the University of Bayreuth‘s commitment to internationalization.
Please send your cover letter and supporting documents (CV outlining your education and academic career, a list of publications, a list of courses taught, your certificates, and a description of your research) to the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Science, University of Bayreuth, 95440 Bayreuth by 02.06.2019.
