Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) – The Research University in the Helmholtz Association creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is our goal to make significant contributions to mastering the global challenges of mankind in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 9300 employees of KIT cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in research, academic education, and innovation.

In Division V – Physics and Mathematics – the KIT Department of Mathematics invites applications for the position of a

Tenure-Track-Professorship in Geometry (W1)

with an intended promotion to Full Professor (W3) with tenure at the Institute of Algebra and Geometry. This Tenure-track-professorship (W1) is funded by the "Bund-Länder-Program for the Promotion of Young Scientists. The anticipated starting date is October 1, 2020.

Young researchers working in geometry and related areas of mathematics and having completed their Ph.D. within the last 4 years are invited to apply. The possible areas of specialisation include algebraic, metric, Riemannian and symplectic geometry, geometric group theory, algebraic topology, and combinatorial geometry.

The candidates are expected to demonstrate excellence in research and teaching and show a great potential to contribute to research areas of the Institute. In particular, it is expected that the successful applicant will actively participate in the work of the Research Training Group RTG 2229 “Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces”, a collaboration between KIT and Heidelberg University. In teaching, an attractive course offering in geometry as well as in other areas represented by the Institute, is expected.

The candidate is also welcome to participate in topics of the KIT-Center MathSee, especially in the method area Mathematical Structures.

Initially no knowledge of the German language is required. As the language of instruction for the basic undergraduate courses is German, the successful candidate will be expected to teach in German after three years.

Tenure track is completed after six years with a mid-term evaluation after three years. The evaluation procedure and general criteria are defined in the "Qualitätssicherungskonzept für Juniorprofessuren mit Tenure Track am Karlsruher Institut für Technologie“. Of particular importance are internationally visible contributions to the field of research (publications and scientific talks), internal and external cooperation, third-party funding, quality of teaching, and supervision of young scientists and students. KIT offers career development services and mentoring.

KIT is an equal opportunity employer. Women are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered if equally qualified. KIT is a certified family-friendly university and offers part-time employment, leave of absence due to family reasons, dual-career service and coaching to support balance between family and career.
