University of BayreuthBayreuth
The University of Bayreuth is a research-oriented university with internationally competitive, interdisciplinary focus areas in research
and teaching. The Faculty of Mathematics, Physics & Computer Science at the University of Bayreuth is currently seeking to appoint a
Professor of numerical methods for partial differential equations
(pay grade: W2)
to commence 1 October 2018. This permanent civil service position is offered with the possibility of being promoted to a W3 professor
upon a successful performance review of research and teaching in accordance with the Bayreuth-Track Personnel Development Model for
professors at the University of Bayreuth.
The successful candidate will be an internationally recognised expert in the fields of numerical methods for partial differential
equations and scientific computing. A relation to uncertainty quantification and/or multiscale problems is of particular interest.
Candidates for the advertised position should have experience in the acquisition of third-party funding and the willingness to
cooperate with the existing numerical analysis groups, in particular with a view to joint grant proposals.
The incumbent will be expected to teach in the mathematics degree programmes, in particular in the international elite course Scientific
Computing. Furthermore, an adequate contribution to the mathematical education of engineers is assumed.
Requirements 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 has been certified as a “family-friendly university” and 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 Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics & Computer
Science, University of Bayreuth, 95440 Bayreuth, Germany, by 4 May 2018. Application
documents cannot be returned to the applicant, and if unsuccessful, the files will be permanently disposed of in accordance with the data
protection law. Please also submit an identical copy of your application as a single PDF file (up to 30 MB) to
