Postdoc Position at the Cluster of Excellence in Simulation Technology

Universitt Stuttgart with its 20,000 students and 7,000 employees is one of the leading European Research Universities with a main focus on engineering and natural sciences. 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.

Postdoc in philosophy of science

The research should be devoted to the epistemology of simulation with a particular focus on conceptualisations of methodological strategies for coping with uncertainty. 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.

Applications with the usual documents (CV, degree certificates, references, publication list, letter of motivation) should be sent directly to the Junior Professor to arrive not later than April 30, 2009.
