The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) 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 up to three

W2-Professorships ("Bonn Junior Fellows")

These are temporary positions 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 increase the number of female professors in disciplines where they are underrepresented, in particular on tenured positions. It is therefore intended to fill about half of the positions offered with women. Women are strongly encouraged to apply.
The general conditions of employment are according to § 36 of the Higher Education Act of North Rhine-Westphalia (Hochschulgesetz des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen).

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 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 third application round is 9 October 2016. Expected starting date is not later than 1 October 2017. Deadlines for the following rounds and further details will be published at: www.hcm.uni-bonn.de/opportunities/bonnjunior-fellows

Applications should be sent, using our online application form www.hcm.unibonn.de/bjf/application, to the joint hiring committee: Prof. Dr. Karl-Theodor Sturm, Coordinator Hausdorff Center for Mathematics, Endenicher Allee 62, D-53115 Bonn, Germany
