Freie Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin - Depart­ment of Math­em­at­ics and Com­puter Sci­ence - Insti­tute for Math­em­at­ics

Pro­fess­or­ship in Math­em­at­ics for Data Sci­ence

salary grade: W 3
ref­er­ence code: W3 Math­DataSc

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful applic­ant will cover the area ‘Math­em­at­ics for Data Sci­ence’ in research and teach­ing. The pro­fess­or­ship will link the fields of math­em­at­ics and data sci­ences in an up-to-date man­ner.

Apart from the offi­cial duties in accord­ance with Art­icle 99 of the Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act, we expect the appointee to engage in the fol­low­ing activ­it­ies:

The new pro­fessor will play an act­ive role in the newly estab­lished cluster of excel­lence ‘MATH+’ and engage in other col­lab­or­at­ive research pro­jects of Freie Uni­versität Ber­lin, such as the Col­lab­or­at­ive Research Cen­ter 1114 "Scal­ing Cas­cades in Com­plex Sys­tems". Addi­tion­ally, she or he will be respons­ible for anchor­ing the data-ori­ented math­em­at­ics in the Mas­ter's pro­grams in Math­em­at­ics, Bioin­form­at­ics and Data Sci­ence. We also expect the appointee to par­ti­cip­ate in the basic lec­tures of the cor­res­pond­ing Bach­elor's courses (these courses will be partly open also for inter­na­tional stu­dents of the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School) as well as in the teacher train­ing courses of math­em­at­ics. Moreover, the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will be will­ing to acquire any miss­ing know­ledge of the Ger­man or Eng­lish lan­guage within three years and will address gender and diversity aspects in teach­ing.


Appoint­ment require­ments are gov­erned by Art­icle 100 of the Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act (Ber­liner Hoch­schul­ge­setz).

The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate should be an expert in sim­ul­tan­eously devel­op­ing numer­ical, stochastic or geo­met­rical meth­ods and apply­ing those meth­ods to real data. He or she is expec­ted to have excel­lent, inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible research find­ings that prom­ise to bridge the gap to applic­a­tions in the life sci­ences. The appointee will also have pro­found inter­na­tional teach­ing exper­i­ence in the areas men­tioned above and the skills to teach in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Fur­ther­more, she or he will be exper­i­enced in acquir­ing, sci­en­tific­ally devel­op­ing and lead­ing extern­ally fun­ded research pro­jects.

How to ap­ply:

Applic­a­tions should include a CV, cop­ies of all cer­ti­fic­ates of aca­demic qual­i­fic­a­tion in Ger­man or Eng­lish; let­ters of appoint­ment (if applic­able and needed, please add trans­la­tions), a list of pub­lic­a­tions, a list of courses pre­vi­ously taught and evid­ence of teach­ing com­pet­ence. Please include inform­a­tion on involve­ment in ongo­ing and future research endeavors, joint research pro­jects, extern­ally fun­ded pro­jects and, if neces­sary, lan­guage cer­ti­fic­ates. If applic­able, please give inform­a­tion on indus­trial cooper­a­tion, inven­tions/pat­ents and spin-offs.

All mater­i­als, includ­ing a private postal and an email address, must be received no later than Feb­ru­ary 10th, 2020. Please indic­ate the ref­er­ence code for the pos­i­tion when you sub­mit your mater­i­als, prefer­ably elec­tron­ic­ally in one PDF file (max­imum 5 MB), to the fol­low­ing address:
