Junior Pro­fessor Pos­i­tion in Dis­crete Geo­metry

Salary grade: W 1
Ref­er­ence code: W1 Diskr­Geo

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful applic­ant will assume research and teach­ing respons­ib­il­it­ies in the field of dis­crete geo­metry. Appoint­ment require­ments are gov­erned by Sec­tion 102a of the Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act (Ber­liner Hoch­schul­ge­setz, Ber­lHG).

Along with the reg­u­lar offi­cial duties of pro­fess­ors lis­ted in Art­icle 99 of the Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act, we expect the appointee to engage in the fol­low­ing activ­it­ies:

The appointee will assume teach­ing duties as part of the work­ing group “Dis­crete Geo­metry” within the Insti­tute of Math­em­at­ics and will par­ti­cip­ate in the gradu­ate lec­ture series “Dis­crete Geo­metry I-III” offered annu­ally in Eng­lish at the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School. The junior pro­fessor will also be expec­ted to play an act­ive role in the Research Train­ing Group “Facets of Com­plex­ity” (GRK 2434), the Ber­lin-Munich Col­lab­or­at­ive Research Cen­ter/Trans­re­gio 109 “Dis­cret­iz­a­tion in Geome-try and Dynam­ics,” and as a mem­ber of the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School teach­ing fac­ulty. They are also expec­ted to con­trib­ute to other exist­ing and pro­jec­ted math­em­at­ical pro­jects in Ber­lin with third-party fund­ing. The appointee will also teach courses in a way that reflects sens­it­iv­ity to gender and diversity issues.

The pos­i­tion entails a three-year appoint­ment as a civil ser­vant for a fixed period (“Beamter/Beamtin auf Zeit”). Fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful midterm review (“Zwis­chene­valu­ation”), the pos­i­tion can be ex-ten­ded for another three years.


Suc­cess­ful can­did­ates should demon­strate an out­stand­ing record of uni­versity teach­ing and re-search in dis­crete geo­metry, with a strong inter­na­tional com­pon­ent. The Depart­ment of Math­em­at­ics and Com­puter Sci­ence is espe­cially inter­ested in can­did­ates with exper­i­ence using meth­ods and applic­a­tions in one or more of the fol­low­ing fields: topo­lo­gical com­bin­at­or­ics, geo­met­rical topo­logy, com­pu­ta­tional geo­metry, dis­crete math­em­at­ics, algeb­raic geo­metry, and/or dif­fer­en­tial geo­metry. They should have exper­i­ence with pro­jects fin­anced through third-party fund­ing. Please note that the suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will be expec­ted to teach in Eng­lish.
