The Institute of Mathematical Stochastics of the Department of Mathematics of the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, Germany, invites applications for a
W 2-Professorship for Mathematical Stochastics
to be filled on April 1st, 2017. A W2-Professorship is comparable to an Associate Professorship.
We are looking for an internationally renowned scientist in the field of Probability Theory and
Statistics with a focus on applications complementing the current research profile of the Institute
of Mathematical Stochastics. Of particular interest are those fields of probability theory and
statistics with connections to other mathematical fields of the department as well as to the
centers of excellence of the university (dynamic systems as well as neurosciences), for example
stochastic processes, stochastic differential equations, statistical methods for high-dimensional
data or computational statistics.
The successful candidate is expected to participate in the teaching duties of the department
including courses of the Bachelor and Master programmes in "Mathematics" and "Statistics"
resp. "Applied Statistics" as well as service for other departments. For the core teaching
program, the teaching language is German, while for some service courses proficiency in
English is required. The willingness and ability to collaborate with the existing research groups
of the department and the university will be essential.
Formal prerequisites for the appointment are the habilitation or equivalent qualifications
according to § 35 (3) HSG-LSA.
Applications from disabled persons will be given priority in the case of equal suitability, ability
and professional expertise.
The Otto-von-Guericke-University aims to increase the proportion of women researchers within
the university and specifically encourages women to apply.
