Junior Professorship (W1) in Computer Science, Darmstadt (Germany


The Graduate School of Computational Engineering at Technische Universitt (TU) Darmstadt has been recognized as a center for toplevel research and scientific excellence by the highly competitive "Excellence Initiative" of the German Federal and State Governments in 2007.

Within the framework of the Graduate School the TU Darmstadt intends to further strengthen its expertise in the field of Computational Engineering and invites applications for a Junior Professorship (W1) Computer Science (Ref. No. 192) in the Department of Computer Science. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to: - Semantic modeling and simulation methods which combine first principle approaches (i.e. continuous in time and/or space) with abstract (i.e. discrete) properties and their application in computer-aided engineering and design, virtual environments or intelligent robots, - Simulated reality and the interaction of realistic physics-based simulation, optimization and visualization/animation methods subject to real-time constraints.

The Graduate School is embedded into an excellent environment at TU
Darmstadt consisting of the Computational Engineering Research Center, a
variety of Research and Research Training Groups, Collaborative Research
Centers and existing BSc/MSc study programs in Computational Engineering.

The successful candidate will have excellent opportunities for interaction
within this stimulating, inter-disciplinary environment and is expected to
develop a high quality research program. The Graduate School will support
the activities by PhD scholarships in order to establish a Junior Research
Group.

to three years and will be continued for three years after a successful
evaluation of the research and teaching records.

Technische Universitt Darmstadt intends to increase the number of female
faculty members and encourages female candidates to apply. In case of
equal qualifications severly disabled applicants will be preferred.
