University Professorship (W3) for the chair of "Metallic Materials"
Published(71 days ago)
Deadline for applications(44 days ago)
Technische Universität BerlinBerlin
Technische Universität Berlin, Faculty III - Process Sciences - Institute of Materials Science and Technology invites applications for the position of a
University Professor - salary grade W3
for the chair of "Metallic Materials".
Reference number: III-695/19 (starting at the earliest possible / permanent / closing date for applications 31/10/19)
The Department for Materials Science and Technology with the Chairs of Metallic Materials, Polymer
Materials and Technology, Advanced Ceramic Materials, Materials Technology and Structure and Properties of Materials
carries the Bachelor and Master study programs in Materials Science.
The successful candidate should cover teaching and research of metallic materials and metal forming technology in their
full width as well as contribute significantly to further development of the main research areas of the department in the
Key Application Areas of the TU Berlin, e.g. "Material, Design and Manufacturing", "Energy Systems and Sustainable
Resource Management", "Human Health" as well as "Infrastructure and Mobility".
In teaching, the classes in metallic materials and technology for students of Bachelor and Master programs in Materials
Science and Mechanical Engineering shall be provided. The courses cover physical and chemical foundation of technology
and properties of metallic materials as well as detailed aspects of forming, manufacture and application of metals
and of metallic composites for the above mentioned areas. Furthermore, methods for the numerical description and
development (simulation) of metallic materials and processes are part of the detailed teaching. The ability for teaching
courses in German and English is expected.
In research, new experimental materials and processing concepts should be developed for a broad spectrum of applications
of metallic materials and material compounds. Research should focus on the forming technology of metallic materials
(extrusion), which can be treated in terms of a holistic approach along the whole process chain from the atomic level
understanding to the component fabrication. Future research topics may include alloy selection, targeted adjustment of
metallic microstructures through the various processing steps, and the development of required technologies, supported
by the characterization of structures and properties through a variety of characterization techniques. Besides the development
of new metallic materials the research should also focus on the development of new process technologies, especially
regarding the transformation from operated metal forming processes to property-controlled processes.
Candidates must fulfill the requirements for appointment for professorships in compliance with § 100
BerlHG (Berlin Higher Education Act), this includes completed university studies, pedagogical didactic qualifications,
proven by a teaching portfolio (for further information, see the TUB website, quick access
144242), special aptitude for
scientific work (demonstrated by the quality of a doctorate) as well as additional academic achievements (usually as a
junior professorship or habilitation) or special achievements in the application or the development of scientific knowledge
and methods in at least five years of professional practice, of which at least three years must have been outside the field
of higher education.
The successful candidate needs to demonstrate research experience in the abovementioned fields as well as comprehensive
and well-founded knowledge of the structure, processing technology, especially extrusion of metallic materials,
and properties of metallic materials; aptitude in the leadership of a working group; experience in the supervision of student
theses and doctorates; experience in initiating, soliciting and managing national and international third-party funded
projects. In addition, competencies and experience in the field of promoting young researchers and women as well as in
the area of gender mainstreaming are desirable. A good command of English is desirable.
The 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. We
appreciate the diversity of our members and pursue the goal of equal opportunities.
