(with Tenure-Track-Option to W3-Professorship)
The junior professorship is an anticipatory professorship to succeed to the chair of Joining and Welding Technology (Prof. Vesselin Michailov). It is required that the applicant has an engineering focus in the field of joining and welding, in particular deposition welding, and she/he has proof of scientific research achievements.
The applicant should expand and further develop the existing research in the field of "Shape-giving Joining" and offer courses for students in this area. She/He should initially take over project leading in the field of ongoing research projects and organize their successful implementation. Active participation in the framework of the initiatives for structural and energy change in the region as well as close cooperation with the involved partners from industry and scientific partners is expected. The willingness for interdisciplinary national and international cooperation as well as cooperation with the institutes and faculties of the BTU, is required. Participation in innovative and future-oriented further development of German-language and international courses is expected.
The holder of the position should ideally develop and/or expand the following skills within the framework of the junior professorship:
Expertise in joining and welding technology, including "Shape-giving Joining". In particular, a close link between material and technology expertise that serves as the basis for the targeted properties setting based on the metallurgical and microstructural mechanisms.
Expertise in filler materials such as powder and cored wires
Expertise in testing and design of welded joints and structures
Expertise in simulation and optimization of welded joints and welding processes with regard to different requirements, among others lightweight construction.
Courses must also be conducted in English.
Additional requirements derive from § 42 Brandenburgisches Hochschulgesetz (BbgHG) i. V. m. § 3 BbgHG.
Candidates are required to provide in the application the previous achievements in fundamental research, e.g. proposals for publicly funded projects (DFG, BMBF, EU ...) and publications in peer-reviewed journals. In addition, experience in application-oriented research with industrial companies has to be proven e.g. through projects (AIF, ZIM ...), joint publications or patents.
Experience in acquisition of third-party funds as well as in execution of third-party funded projects are expected.
The requirements and conditions for recruitment can be found in §§ 45 and 46 BbgHG. The time period of a full-time scientific activity between the last examination of the doctorate and application for the junior professorship may generally not exceed six years.
Candidates who meet the recruitment criteria for a university professorship in accordance with § 41 Abs. 1 Nr. 4a BbgHG cannot be considered in this selection procedure.
