Technical University of Munich (TUM)München
Technical University of Munich (TUM) invites applications for the position of
Tenure Track Assistant Professor in
»Electrical Power Transmission«
pay scale W2 with tenure track option to W3 to begin in summer semester 2017.
The professorship is located in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and is affiliated with the Munich
School of Engineering (MSE). The MSE is an Integrative Research Center at TUM, focusing on energy research, e.g. in the
areas of electro mobility, power-plant technologies, renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency. The combined
research efforts are concentrated in the interdisciplinary project TUM.Energy.
The responsibilities of TUM professors include research, teaching and the promotion of early-career scientists.
We seek to appoint an expert in the research area of electrical power transmission with focus on methodologies utilizing
new transmission technologies, which are more efficient, less costly and less visible than current technologies. The
expansion of renewable power sources which are often far away from demand centers and their integration in the network
requires a restructuring of power transmission and distribution system.
Teaching will focus on the MSE bachelor program but can also include other courses in the university’s bachelor and master programs.
We are looking for a candidate with an outstanding doctoral degree or equivalent scientific qualification, who has demonstrated
initial scientific achievements and the capacity for independent research at the highest levels. International scientific experience
during the doctoral or postdoctoral phase is expected.
The successful candidate shows pedagogical aptitude, including the ability to teach in English, is open to interdisciplinary
research between electrical engineers and physicists, and is able to bring in scientific expertise into the public debate on
the "German Energiewende".
TUM offers a merit-based academic career option for tenure track faculty from Assistant Professor through a permanent position
as Associate Professor, and on to Full Professor, based on best international standards and transparent performance criteria.
Furthermore, TUM provides excellent working conditions in a lively scientific community, embedded in the vibrant research
environment of the Greater Munich Area. Furthermore, TUM offers attractive and performance-based salary conditions.
The TUM Munich Dual Career Office (MDCO) provides tailored career consulting to the partners of newly appointed professors.
MDCO gives assistance for relocation and integration of new professors, their partners and accompanying family members.
TUM is an equal opportunity employer. As such, we explicitly encourage applications from women. Applications from disabled persons
with essentially the same qualifications will be given preference.
Application documents should be presented in accordance with TUM’s application guidelines for professors. These guidelines and detailed
information about the TUM Appointment and Career System are available on
