One professorship in Mathematics at THM Campus Friedberg


At the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen at the Friedberg Campus in the Department of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Data Processing (MND), there is a vacancy for a W2 Professorship “Mathematics with the focus on engineering mathematics” to be filled as soon as possible.

With over 18,000 students, the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in Germany. To strengthen our team, we are looking for a person with a university degree in mathematics and a doctorate in mathematics as well as sound practical experience in the application of mathematical methods, preferably for solving engineering problems. She/he has to represent the field of appointment in research and teaching (also in the basic courses). A knowledge of English, both written and spoken, is a prerequisite. Profound knowledge in at least two of the following areas is expected: Mathematical modelling and simulation, differential equations and their numerics, approximation theory, discrete mathematics and geometry as well as computer algebra systems.
Scientific qualification is basically proven by the reference of the doctorate to the dedication as well as by relevant current publications. Abilities to motivate practice-oriented teaching and enjoyment in dealing with students – proven if possible – are also hiring requirements.
As a technical university, the focus of the students’ education is on practical relevance, so that successful relevant practical activities in industry or in industry-related research, for example in the management of scientific working groups, are indispensable.

We expect from our professors:
Commitment and initiative through a high level of presence at the university and intensive supervision of students (associated with this is a willingness to reside in the Friedberg area).
Continuous further education in subject-specific science and university didactics
Participation in international activities of the university
Assumption of responsibility within the framework of academic self-administration
Ability and inclination to conduct research and acquire third-party funding
Courses at all university study locations (if required)
a high degree of presence of the teaching staff at the university

We offer our professors
Induction through participation in basic training in higher education didactics
Performance-related pay
Working in a pleasant and collegial atmosphere
Participation in the competence centres with interdisciplinary practice-oriented research
Opportunity to work in continuing education

The following formal recruitment requirements apply:
Formal minimum requirements for appointment according to § 68 of the Hessian Higher Education Act are: completed university studies, doctorate, pedagogical aptitude, additional scientific achievements or special achievements in the application or development of scientific knowledge and methods in a professional practice of at least five years, of which at least three years must have been exercised outside the higher education sector.
The position is available for an unlimited period. In the case of the first appointment to a professorship, the appointment shall initially be made in a probationary civil service relationship or in an unlimited employment relationship. In all other respects, reference is made to § 67 of the Hessian Higher Education Act.
