Universitt Stuttgart is committed to excellent basic and applied research and interdisciplinary academic education. The excellence initiative of the German state and federal governments has approved the funding of the Cluster of Excellence EXC 310 Simulation Technology (SimTech) at Universitt Stuttgart (www.simtech.uni-stuttgart.de). In this context, the newly established Stuttgart Research Centre for Simulation Technology (SRC SimTech) is asking for applications for a scientist at the Postdoc level to pursue research in a future-orientated research field.

Case studies drawn from the SimTech Cluster and close collaboration with natural scientists and engineers on methodological issues should form an integral part of the research. The successful candidate has a background in philosophy of science, epistemology or logic. The position with the designated salary bracket TV-L 13 has a limited tenure of three years with a possible extension.

The Postdoc is expected to participate actively in the SimTech Teaching Programmes and Industry Transfer Concepts.
