Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty III

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".

Work­ing field:

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.

How to ap­ply:

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.
The Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is a cer­ti­fied fam­ily-friendly higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tion, and our Dual Career Ser­vice offers assist­ance to you and your fam­ily when relo­cat­ing to Ber­lin. Applic­a­tions from abroad are expli­citely wel­come.
