Scientific Head of the central Cluster Facility "Scientific Transfer Center" (f/m/d)
University of Tübingen
The Cluster of Excellence "Machine Learning: New Perspectives for Science" at the University of Tübingen offers a position as
Scientific Head of the central Cluster Facility "Scientific Transfer Center" (100%)
to be filled as soon as possible. The position is initially limited until December 31, 2025, with the option of a tenured position.
The Transfer Center will be a new facility of the Cluster of Excellence, intended to act as an interface between the Cluster and the various Departments of the University. The Scientific Head is going to promote the transfer of knowledge from the field of machine learning within the Cluster of Excellence to other Departments of the University and to help establishing links between scientific application domains and the research in the area of machine learning.
To counsel scientific projects from a variety of disciplines on questions in the field of machine learning
To develop prototypes for standard use cases of machine learning
To initiate networking events between researchers in the field of machine learning and scientific application domains

To supervise the other scientists employed at the Transfer Center
If you enjoy supporting scientific projects at the interface between machine learning and other fields of science, then this is the place for you. The position offers quite a lot of creative freedom. The opportunity to participate in publications is given, but is not the primary goal of the position.

Teaching in Bachelor's or Master's degree programs and transfer to industry will explicitly not be the scope of the Transfer Center.

Please also direct any questions regarding this advertisement to the Central Office.
