Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty V

As part of the fed­eral and state pro­gram for the advance­ment of junior schol­ars, Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin, Fac­ulty V, cur­rently has a vacancy at the Insti­tute of Machine Design and Sys­tems Tech­no­logy for a

ten­ure track pro­fess­or­ship, remu­ner­a­tion group W1, fixed term, to be con­tin­ued as a life­time pro­fess­or­ship, remu­ner­a­tion group W3

in " Cyber-Phys­ical Sys­tems in Mech­an­ical Engin­eer­ing”.

This pro­fess­or­ship should be seen in the con­text of Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin’s goal to recruit and advance junior schol­ars in the early stage of their career. The ten­ure track pro­fess­or­ship is ini­tially lim­ited to three years. The pos­i­tion shall be renewed for a fur­ther three years con­di­tional upon the pos­tholder’s per­form­ance and agree­ment. After six years, as a rule, a lifelong pro­fess­or­ship will be offered con­di­tional upon the ful­fill­ment of the determ­ined eval­u­ation cri­teria and hir­ing require­ments for a lifelong pro­fess­or­ship. Inform­a­tion about the eval­u­ation cri­teria can be found on Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin’s web­site

Work­ing field:

The pro­fess­or­ship is inten­ded to act as a bridge between the dis­cip­lines of com­puter sci­ence, cyber­net­ics and mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing for the research of cyber-phys­ical sys­tems in mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing and in this way to provide sus­tain­able impulses for excel­lent research and teach­ing at TU Ber­lin. The pos­tholder is expec­ted to invest­ig­ate novel meth­ods for the design of cyber-phys­ical sys­tems on the basis of valid mod­els, tak­ing into account their com­plex prop­er­ties, and to exploit poten­tial areas of applic­a­tion for such sys­tems. The fol­low­ing areas have been defined for teach­ing and research:

  • Method devel­op­ment for the early assess­ment, val­id­a­tion and veri­fic­a­tion of cyber-phys­ical sys­tems;
  • novel and com­pre­hens­ive mod­el­ing for the descrip­tion of the sys­tems and their prop­er­ties;
  • research into meth­ods for the ana­lysis and con­trol of com­plex machine net­works, for instance, in indus­trial pro­duc­tion pro­cesses or for traffic coordin­a­tion;
  • devel­op­ment of meth­ods of adaptiv­ity and machine learn­ing in com­plex machine net­works.

The teach­ing respons­ib­il­it­ies asso­ci­ated with this post relate to the bach­elor’s and mas­ter’s pro­grams in the engin­eer­ing sci­ences. The devel­op­ment of cur­ricula, as well as par­ti­cip­a­tion in col­lab­or­at­ive research and aca­demic self-admin­is­tra­tion are fur­ther require­ments of the pos­i­tion.


Essen­tial qual­i­fic­a­tions: Can­did­ates must ful­fill the hir­ing require­ments pur­su­ant to Sec­tion 102c Ber­lin State Higher Edu­ca­tion Act in com­bin­a­tion with Sec­tion 102a Ber­lin State Higher Edu­ca­tion Act. Of par­tic­u­lar import­ance are a uni­versity degree in engin­eer­ing or nat­ural sci­ences (prefer­ably in mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing, com­puter engin­eer­ing, tech­no­phys­ics or tech­no­mathem­at­ics), a strong aptitude for research demon­strated, as a rule, by an out­stand­ing doc­tor­ate as well as teach­ing skills demon­strated by a teach­ing port­fo­lio (for fur­ther inform­a­tion about the port­fo­lio, see Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin’s web­site, quick access 144242). The can­did­ate is expec­ted to have writ­ten pub­lic­a­tions for peer-reviewed journ­als – espe­cially lead­ing inter­na­tional journ­als – in the spe­cial­ist field. Exper­i­ence in the acquis­i­tion of com­pet­it­ive third-party fund­ing, involve­ment in inter­na­tional research and pro­ject work in the above-men­tioned fields are pre­ferred. Also sought are qual­i­fic­a­tions in the field of sci­ence and research man­age­ment or pro­fes­sional exper­i­ence in the indus­trial envir­on­ment of mech­an­ical engin­eer­ing, prefer­ably with man­age­ment respons­ib­il­it­ies and with proven expert­ise in the field of cyber-phys­ical sys­tems. Skills in the area of gender and diversity, as well as com­mit­ment to sci­ence com­mu­nic­a­tion and know­ledge and/or tech­no­logy trans­fer com­plete your pro­file. Non-Ger­man speak­ing applic­ants are expec­ted to demon­strate a com­mit­ment to learn­ing Ger­man quickly. Excel­lent Eng­lish skills are desir­able.

How to ap­ply:

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin is seek­ing to increase the pro­por­tion of women in research and teach­ing and there­fore act­ively encour­ages applic­a­tions from suit­ably qual­i­fied female can­did­ates. Applic­a­tions from abroad are expressly wel­come. Pref­er­ence will be given to applic­ants with severe dis­ab­il­it­ies ful­filling the require­ments of the pos­i­tion.

Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin offers its ten­ure track pro­fess­ors struc­tured ment­or­ing to sup­port their pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment.
