Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Faculty II – Mathematics and Natural Sciences - Institute of Mathematics

University Professorship - BesGr. W3

in the field of "Mathematical Analysis".

Working field:

Researching in an area of mathematical analysis. Teaching in mathematics degree programs (including basic studies) and appropriate participation in teaching offers for other programs. Classes are to be taught in German and English. Further duties include supervising students completing their bachelor’s and master’s theses as well as doctoral candidates and undertaking appropriate academic self-governance duties.

Your research area should be different to those currently pursued by other chairs and workgroups at the Institute of Mathematics but also complement these in a meaningful way, while also enabling links to other applications, especially in those disciplines represented at Technische Universität Berlin. Similarly, active participation in existing and future collaborative projects is expected, in particular the Math+ Cluster of Excellence (including the Berlin Mathematical School), the Berlin International Graduate School in Model and Simulation based Research (BIMoS) and the Interdisciplinary Center for Modeling and Simulation (IMOS).

Further tasks include leadership and management of the chair and of staff, promotion of young scientists, women and social diversity, knowledge and technology transfer, initiatives for internationalization as well as gender- and diversity-competent and sustainability-oriented action.


Applicants are required to fulfill the requirements for a professorship as stated in Section 100 BerlHG
(Berlin Higher Education Act). These include a university degree in mathematics, a particular aptitude for academic work, in general demonstrated by a doctorate in mathematics, as well as additional academic achievements and teaching aptitude as demonstrated by teaching experience and a teaching portfolio (for further information, please see the TU Berlin website,

We are looking for a researcher with an international profile in one of the following areas of mathematical analysis:
  • Functional analysis and operator theory
  • Calculus of variations and non-linear partial differential equations (including optimal transport and mathematical foundations of continuum mechanics)
  • Nonlinear optimization, optimal control and inverse problems
  • Harmonic analysis and theory of function spaces
  • Multiscale methods and homogenization

Your specific focus of research should be different to those currently represented at the Institute of Mathematics at Technische Universität Berlin.

Previous research results must be demonstrated by publications in journals with peer review procedures. Experience of third-party funded research and participation in collaborative projects is desired.

Relevant teaching experience and experience of supervising final theses (bachelor’s, master’s) is expected. Experience of supervising doctoral candidates is desired. Experience of academic self-governance is expected.

Technische Universität Berlin expects its professors to possess the ability to both head their academic chair and manage its staff as well as assume responsibility for the chair’s strategic development. At the Institute of Mathematics, this includes commitment to the advancement of junior scholars and women, the gender and diversity competences required to create diversity-sensitive working and study conditions, providing fresh impetus in research and teaching and participating in academic self-governance. We also greatly value interdisciplinary cooperation and initiatives in science communication as well as in knowledge and technology transfer. As a university with an international profile, we require our professors to possess good English-language skills and we expressly welcome applications from researchers whose first language is not German and who are committed to quickly learning the language.

How to apply:

Technische Universität Berlin is committed to increasing the proportion of women in research and teaching and strongly encourages qualified female researchers to apply. Qualified individuals with disabilities will be favored. Technische Universität Berlin values the diversity of its staff and is committed to an equality of opportunity.
