Junior Research Group Leader (TV L 15)

Aachen Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering  
Science (AICES)


Applications are invited for a "Junior Research Group Leader"  
position. Generous funding for Ph.D. students is secured through a  
grant by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research  
Association). A parallel appointment as "Junior Professor" is  
possible at a suitable department of the RWTH Aachen University. The  
position has a tenure-track option and is comparable with U.S.A.  
tenure-track assistant professorships. The teaching duties are  
relatively small. The position is paid according to the German civil  
service TV-L 15 scale including standard benefits. The salary depends  
on experience and is competitive with similar positions in Europe.  
The beginning date for the position is as early as possible.


The successful candidate is expected to set up an independent  
research program supported by internal and external funding. A  
doctoral degree in the broad field of computational engineering  
science and a strong research record is required. Additionally, 1 to  
4 years of postdoctoral experience are desired as well as substantial  
experience outside Germany. The ideal candidate should work in an  
area complementary to the existing groups. Knowledge of German is not  
required.


The AICES graduate school was established under the Excellence  
Initiative of the German federal and state governments to promote  
novel research and training in the field of computational engineering  
science. The school is a collaboration of 15 university institutes,  
the Research Centre Jülich, and the Max Planck Institute for Iron  
Research. AICES organizes the doctoral education of approximately 100  
students, as well as about 10 independent junior research groups.  
AICES provides excellent computational facilities and a dynamic  
service team. English is the working language in AICES.
