The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science seeks to fill the following Junior Professorship from 1 April 2021:

W1-Junior Professorship "Statistics"
(Position will be offered for 3 years and is extendable for another 3 years after successful evaluation.)

The candidate should have an excellent independent research profile in an active area of mathematical statistics, demonstrated by publications in leading journals, as well as teaching experience.

The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate:

  • a high level of commitment to teaching and to supporting students,
  • a successful record of acquiring external funding, and
  • a willingness to cooperate with existing research groups at the Institute of Mathematics and the Max-Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences.

Junior professorships should be seen as opportunities for further qualification. This call is therefore aimed at applicants who, having completed a good doctoral degree (with the honour magna cum laude or higher), wish to obtain a further qualification and have not completed a habilitation. If the applicant was employed as a research or graduate assistant prior to or after completing their doctorate, then the doctorate and employment phases should have lasted no more than six years in total.
