W1-Professorship “Sustainability and Usability of Simulation Software” at University Stuttgart

This junior professorship will be established at the University of Stuttgart through the DFG Cluster of Excellence EXC 2075 “Data-integrated Simulation Science (SimTech)”. It will be jointly appointed at the Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science (SC SimTech) and the Faculty of Computer Science, Information Technology and Electrical Engineering and linked closely to the group “Simulation of Large Systems”.



The professorship is expected to represent the field Software Development in Scientific Computing in research and teaching, with a special focus on sustainability, maintainability, usability, efficiency and parallel scalability of numerical simulation software. Further aspects are testing and validation of simulation software, user and developer friendly documentation and configuration interfaces, and minimally invasive application programming interfaces.

We look for applicants with substantial, internationally visible research contributions in the development of open source simulation software (libraries or frameworks) in at least one of the following areas:

  • coupling software for multi-physics simulation on high performance computing systems
  • grid frameworks for partial differential equations or particle simulation
  • finite element frameworks for partial differential equations
  • solver libraries for sparse nonlinear or linear systems of equations
  • solver libraries for gradient based optimization and data assimilation
