Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) is a research university with a focus on engineering and natural sciences and an international profile. In the field of basic research, it is particularly active in six collaborative research centres (CRCs) and transregio-CRCs. Important subject areas of application-oriented research are dealt with in close cooperation with the ten research institutes in the vicinity. TUK is a campus university characterised by short distances and cooperative partnership among all its members.
In the framework of the Programme for the Promotion of Early Career Researchers by the German Federal and State Governments (WISNA) the position of tenure track professor
at TUK in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is to be filled as soon as possible.
The tenure track professorship is funded by the WISNA programme. The programme’s target group are scientists at an early stage of their careers. We therefore explicitly invite people to apply shortly after finishing their doctorate. The filling of the professorship requires eligibility according to WISNA. The prerequisite for employment is a short period of scientific work following the doctorate.
The professorship shall initially be occupied as a W 2 position in civil service for a period of six years. In addition to a mid-term evaluation, a tenure evaluation shall be conducted prior to completion of the period based on clearly defined and transparent criteria. These criteria will be established at the time of appointment together with the future appointee. Following the successful completion of the tenure evaluation the appointment shall take place for the civil service post for life in the salary grade W 3, insofar as the general staff regulations are met. The procedures are set forth in the TUK Statutes on Quality Assurance for Appointments.
The professorship will represent the field of energy systems and energy management in research and act as a link between the existing research and teaching portfolio of integrated circuits and systems, control systems, power electronics and mechatronics. Close collaboration with other research groups is encouraged. In teaching, the professor will represent the field in its entirety in the curricula of the department. Examples of suitable research topics are:
We are looking for a candidate with internationally recognized and published research achievements, proof of successfully executed research and development projects and adequate teaching experience.
The State of Rhineland-Palatinate and TUK represent a support concept in which a high attendance of the professors at the university is expected. Besides the general staff regulations, the appointment requirements stipulated in the University Act of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate apply.
TUK strives to promote an increase in the representation of women in research and teaching, and thus emphatically invites qualified female academics to apply. Applicants with disabilities will receive preferential treatment in the event of equal suitability (please enclose evidence). TUK is a family-friendly university; it values the diversity of its members and enables equality of opportunity for all. Applications by scientists from abroad are particularly welcome.
