Two Independent Research Group Leaders
in the Cyber Valley Initiative
CYBER VALLEY | TV-L E14
The University of Stuttgart, Germany, invites applications for positions
of two Independent Research Group Leaders in the Cyber Valley
Cyber Valley is a new center for AI research in the Stuttgart/Tübingen
region, bringing together partners from science and industry to create
a world-leading hub for research in intelligent systems and to establish
an ecosystem for startups in the field of artificial intelligence.
Two Cyber Valley Research Groups will be established as a part of the
Cyber Valley initiative at the University of Stuttgart and will be funded
by the Christian Bürkert Stiftung and the Vector Foundation.
We are seeking two young, highly motivated and emerging researchers,
who will each take the lead in building up a new group and a competitive
research program. The ideal candidate should have an excellent
international early-career track record. The research groups are
expected to engage actively with the existing research environment,
including the Cyber Valley partners.
Applicants from all fields of engineering and science who develop
new technologies, methodologies and concepts and who combine
theory and experiment, simulation or work with Big Data are encouraged
to apply. This includes, but is not limited to, those whose research
interests concern one or more of the following:
automation and control,
or big data science.
It is planned that one of the positions is oriented towards research in
connection to medical engineering and minimally invasive technologies.
The second position is preferably oriented towards modern
manufacturing systems. Researchers with interests in these areas are
particularly encouraged to apply.
The research groups will be located at the Institute of Physical
Chemistry and the Institute of Systems Theory and Automatic Control
respectively. Interested candidates may contact Frank Allgöwer
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or Peer Fischer
(email@example.com) for further information.
The funding of each group includes the group leader position (TV-L
E14), two additional PhD positions as well as startup and running
budgets for up to four years. The group will be embedded into the
above named institutes at the University of Stuttgart and benefit from
its infrastructure and support structures.
Applications should submit a description of past and planned research
activities (up to three pages), a CV, the names and addresses of at
least three potential references as well as PDF-files of up to 5 key
publications. Applications should be submitted as a single PDF-file
to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is
October 7th, 2018.
The University of Stuttgart is an equal opportunity employer. Applications from
women are strongly encouraged. We are committed to increasing the number of
individuals with disabilities in our work-force and therefore encourage applications
from such qualified individuals.
