Working field: The position requires research and teaching in the area of differential geometry, preferably covering the full span from basic research to developing new applications e.g., in computer graphics, physics, or architecture. The successful candidate must participate actively in research within the SFB/Transregio 109 "Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics". Teaching will be required in all mathematical degree programs (including undergraduate) and in the service teaching of mathematics for other programs. Involvement in the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) is desirable. Candidates should be able to teach in German and English. Furthermore, candidates are expected to supervise students' theses on Bachelor, Master and PhD level as well as to participate in the academic administration of the university.

These include a completed academic education in mathematics or a comparable discipline, qualified achievements in research (doctorate in mathematics), additional academic achievements and pedagogical-didactic qualifications, demonstrated by teaching experience and visualized in a teaching portfolio (for further information see TUB Website, quick access 144242).
Candidates should have an internationally visible profile based on excellent achievements in current mathematical research in the field of differential geometry as demonstrated in relevant publications in peer-reviewed journals. She or he should be able to represent the field in research and teaching. Relevant experience in teaching, including the supervision of Bachelor‘s, Master‘s and PhD theses, as well as experience in administrative duties and experience in third party funded and joint research projects is expected. The area of research expertise should allow co-operations with the current professors at the Institute of Mathematics, in particular the "Geometry and Mathematical Physics" group, as well as participation in current (e.g. SFB/Transregio "Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics") and future collaborative research activities.
Technische Universität Berlin is determined to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and therefore strongly encourages qualified female researchers to apply. Qualified individuals with disabilities will be favored. The TU Berlin values the diversity of its members and is committed to the goals of equal opportunities. In the context of the strategic internationalization process, TU Berlin assumes the recruited academic teaching staff‘s ability to conduct classes in English.
