Junior Professorship (W1/W3) of Methods for Battery Management
Published(48 days ago)
Deadline for applications(12 days ago)
The University of Bayreuth is a research-oriented university with internationally competitive, interdisciplinary focus areas in research and teaching.
The Faculty of Engineering Science at the University of Bayreuth is currently seeking to appoint a
Junior Professor of Methods for Battery Management (pay grade: W 1) with Tenure Track to W 3
to commence on 1 April 2020 (minimum salary per month: 4844 euros) as a fixed-term civil servant position. This tenure track professorship is funded by the Tenure Track
Programme of the German Federal Government and the Federal States.
We are looking for a young engineer who is able to work independently and who possesses a high degree of development potential. The newly established professorship is part
of the Bavarian Centre for Battery Technology (BayBatt) and is thus embedded in the focus area Energy Research & Energy Technology. Active participation in BayBatt is
expected. The applicant should address modern methods of battery monitoring and management in his or her research and teaching. The professorship offers the opportunity to
work on developing an exciting field of research and to establish a research group within BayBatt.
The research focus should be on one or more of the following areas:
Algorithms and methods of machine learning, system identification, and control engineering for the detection of battery states, for the modelling of batteries, for charge control, and for (online) optimized operating strategies
Software architecture for distributed systems and sensors, safety systems, data acquisition, control, and communication
Electronics (digital and analogue) and functional system architecture for sensor-based battery monitoring and management
The integration of intelligent battery systems into higher-level (distributed) energy systems, development and validation using hardware- or software-in-the-loop concepts
The teaching activities of the professorship will cover engineering topics such as signals and systems, algorithms and software, and will contribute to the design of a new programme of
study in the field of battery technology. The ability to teach in English is expected.
We are looking for applicants who are able to assume responsibility for the acquisition and research management of publicly funded projects and third-party funded projects carried out with industrial partners.
The requirements for hiring professors at universities in the State of Bavaria apply. The appointment will initially be for a period of three years as a fixed-term civil servant.
In the course of the third year, the junior professorship will be extended by up to three additional years with the consent of the junior professor if he or she has proven successful
as a university lecturer. The complete vacancy notice can be found at
Please send your cover letter and supporting documents (CV outlining education and academic career, list of publications, list of courses taught, a
description of your research, as well as copies of all diplomas and certificates) as a single PDF file (up to 30 MB) to the Dean of the Faculty of
Engineering Science, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank Döpper (firstname.lastname@example.org), by 15 January 2020.
The documents will be permanently disposed of in accordance with data protection law following the conclusion of the appointment process.
