to start at the earliest possible date and who will simultaneously in a joint personnel procedure be appointed a

W3-grade professor (Jülich model)
of methods for simulating energy systems at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, RWTH Aachen University

Applicants should have experience in developing numerical algorithms for model-based optimization and subsequent software implementation. Research activities will be focused at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK) of Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, where the successful candidate will co-head the newly founded subinstitute IEK-10 (Energy Systems Engineering). The main task of IEK-10 is to develop models, simulation and optimization methods, and tools in the field of energy systems engineering. The successful candidate should therefore have a documented interest in energy systems. Potential key topics of the professorship include the scalability of algorithms with a view to using high-performance computing and big data analysis. Close cooperation with other institutes is expected at both institutions.

The successful candidate should have a university degree followed by a PhD or doctorate, teaching experience and be able to demonstrable additional academic achievements in the form of a postdoc qualification (Habilitation), a junior professorship, or research work at a university, research institution, or in some other social sphere (e.g. industry).

RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich are equal opportunities employers and pursue a policy of excluding all types of discrimination. Applications from women scientists are particularly welcome and will be given preference in the case of equal suitability, qualifications, and experience, unless special personal reasons concerning a male candidate outweigh these considerations. Attention is drawn to Art. 8, para. 1, of the Equal Opportunities Act of the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia (LGG). Forschungszentrum Jülich has been certified as family friendly as part of the “audit berufundfamilie” initiative. RWTH Aachen University awards its “FAMOS für FAMILIE” prize to executive staff who have made a special contribution to family-friendly measures. Both institutions also offer support for dual career couples.

Applications from suitable candidates with disabilities are explicitly encouraged. This also holds for those with an equivalent degree of incapacity in the meaning of Art. 2 Code of Social Law (SGB) IX. RWTH Aachen University has been named as a disability-friendly employer for its commitment to training and employing people with disabilities.

Applications can be made in German or in English and should be sent with the usual documentation (CV, copies of certificates, list of publications, teaching experience, brief summary of previous research activities including a list of third-party funding, research concept for the position advertised) preferably by email before
28 January 2018 to the
