Job Opening Details

Type of Position: 

Location of Job Opening


The Cluster of Excellence Hausdorff Center for Mathematics at the University of Bonn brings together researchers in Theoretical and Applied Mathematics, and Mathematical Economics. In this framework, the center is looking forward to filling

several W2-Professorships ("Bonn Junior Fellows")

within the next few years. These positions are temporary for a period of five years. To some of these positions, a tenure-track option is associated, and, in exceptional cases, a position may be tenured immediately.

The University of Bonn is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the number of female professors in disciplines where they are underrepresented, in particular on tenured positions. Therefore, it is intended to fill about half of the positions offered with women, and preference will be given to suitably qualified female candidates, all other considerations being equal. Women are strongly encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to severely disabled applicants with equivalent qualifications.

The professorships.
The professorships intend to encourage independent research by outstanding young researchers, in analogy to the research groups of the Max-Planck-Society or the Emmy-Noether-Program of the German Research Foundation .
The professorships are endowed with travel and guest funds, and with a postdoc position during the initial period. Bonn Junior Fellows also participate in the additional resources of the Hausdorff Center. Professors are encouraged to supervise doctoral students. For an initial period, teaching obligations amount to four hours per week during semesters.

The candidates.
We are looking for young researchers holding a doctoral degree who are about to develop their own research agenda and who have already demonstrated their scientific independence by relevant publications. Candidates should have some international research experience. German language skills are not required.

Research focus.
We seek candidates who fit into the broad spectrum of the Cluster of Excellence. Depending on the respective research focus, candidates become members of the "Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences" or of the "Faculty of Law and Economics" at the University of Bonn. Not all positions will be assigned at the same time; there will be several separate selection rounds.

The deadline for the first application round is 1 November 2012
. Deadlines for the following rounds, and further details, will be published at

Applications should be sent, using our online application form, to the joint hiring committee:
