Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty V

The Tech­nical Uni­versity Ber­lin (TU Ber­lin) – Fac­ulty V (Mech­an­ical Engin­eer­ing and Trans­port Sys­tems) – Insti­tute of Land and Sea Trans­port Sys­tems – together with the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (Deutsches Zen­trum für Luft- und Raum­fahrt e.V. (DLR)) is search­ing for a

Uni­versity Pro­fessor - salary grade W3

for the sub­ject area "Trans­port demand and trans­port impacts"

at the same time
Head of the Insti­tute of Trans­port Research of the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (DLR)
as a per­man­ent pos­i­tion.

The DLR is the national aero­naut­ics and space research centre of the Fed­eral Repub­lic of Ger­many. More than 8300 employ­ees work in the fields of aero­naut­ics, space, energy, trans­port, digit­al­isa­tion and secur­ity. In the Insti­tute of Trans­port Research about 60 sci­ent­ists are research­ing the devel­op­ments and pro­spects of pas­sen­ger and com­mer­cial trans­port for a mod­ern, fit-for-the future trans­port sys­tem.

The teach­ing oblig­a­tion at TU Ber­lin is 2 hours per week (SWS).

The appoint­ment is a W3 pro­fess­or­ship fol­low­ing the Jülich Model.

Work­ing field:

Research and teach­ing, in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Devel­op­ment, test­ing and eval­u­ation of new mobil­ity con­cepts for per­sonal and com­mer­cial trans­port from the per­spect­ive of trans­port demand and trans­port impacts (with spe­cial focus on urban areas, inter­mod­al­ity, act­ive modes, and diversity in spa­tial struc­ture and user require­ments).
Design and eval­u­ation of require­ments on auto­mat­iz­a­tion and digit­al­iz­a­tion of trans­port, in par­tic­u­lar with respect to inter­dis­cip­lin­ary aspects (e.g. social sci­ences, trans­port sci­ences).
Strategies for the trans­form­a­tion of the trans­port sys­tem towards sus­tain­ab­il­ity, cli­mate pro­tec­tion and reduc­tion of resource con­sump­tion; coup­ling between energy and trans­port sys­tems.
Innov­at­ive approaches to sur­veys and data ana­lysis, use of (mass) data sources (e.g. FCD, mobile phone tracks, social media, obser­va­tions from space) for trans­port research, stand­ard­ized and port­able meth­ods for data pro­cessing and ana­lysis, open data.
Devel­op­ment of trans­port demand and trans­port beha­vior mod­els based on empir­ical insights.
Eval­u­ation of the effects of tech­nical or polit­ical meas­ures in trans­port with respect to eco­nomic viab­il­ity, sus­tain­ab­il­ity, as well as user accept­ance; open ref­er­ence mod­els.
It is expec­ted that the future head of the Insti­tute for Trans­port Research will cover the whole range of inter­dis­cip­lin­ary con­nec­tions between the dimen­sions soci­ety, industry, and tech­no­logy in trans­port research. The approach should be sys­temic, in col­lab­or­a­tion with other rel­ev­ant DLR insti­tutes as well as with TU Ber­lin.


Suc­cess­ful applic­ants must ful­fil the require­ments for appoint­ment at the pro­fess­oria level in com­pli­ance with § 100 Ber­lHG (Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act), includ­ing a top­ic­ally rel­ev­ant uni­versity degree, sci­entific achieve­ments (Ph.D.), habil­it­a­tion or equi­val­ent qual­i­fic­a­tion (sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions), and ped­ago­gical didactic qual­i­fic­a­tions, sub­stan­ti­ated by a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for more inform­a­tion see TUB Web­site, quick access no. 144242).
1. Strong record in the acquis­i­tion and the imple­ment­a­tion of large research and devel­op­ment pro­jects from industry as well as from pub­lic sources.
2. Exper­i­ence in research in trans­port in one or sev­eral domains (auto­mot­ive, rail, pub­lic transit)
3. Inter­na­tion­ally recog­nized research activ­ity, sub­stan­ti­ated by rel­ev­ant pub­lic­a­tions.
4. Con­nec­tions into the rel­ev­ant research com­munity
5. Exper­i­ence and com­pet­en­cies in lead­er­ship and man­age­ment
6. Very good Ger­man and Eng­lish lan­guage skills
7. Prac­tical exper­i­ence with the cooper­a­tion in a com­pany deal­ing with ser­vice, oper­at­ing infra­struc­ture or pro­duc­tion in trans­port­a­tion
Desir­able would be exper­i­ence bey­ond trans­port in one or more of the fol­low­ing dis­cip­lines: geo­graphy, com­puter sci­ence, engin­eer­ing, eco­nom­ics, psy­cho­logy, plan­ning sci­ences, soci­ology, stat­ist­ics.
