For this position we are looking for a highly qualified individual of international standing who has an excellent research profile in an active area in the intersection of Discrete Mathematics and Probability. We welcome all applications combining both areas. In order to strengthen the Mathematics department at TU Graz we are looking in particular for research areas that are complementary to those already existing here.

The position is embedded in the Field of Expertise “Information, Communication and Computing” which consists of research groups in Mathematics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and other areas. Teaching duties associated with this position include Mathematics classes for Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Generally, we expect that the applicant is able to cover the field to its full extent at the bachelor, master and doctoral level, and to teach in cooperation with KFU Graz within the framework of the NAWI cooperation programme.

The selection criteria are as follows:

  • A university doctorate in the field.
  • Outstanding scientific qualifications in the field for both research and teaching (as evidenced by a habilitation or equivalent scientific achievements)
  • Pedagogic and didactic skills, as shown by a habilitation or comparable qualifications.
  • International experience in the field
  • Management skills

Experience in grant acquisition is desirable. Applicants should have a strong command of the English language, both written and spoken, to be able to effectively represent the field internationally, and they must also be willing to learn German if they do not already know the language. It is expected that the successful applicant relocates their main residence to the Graz area.

Graz University of Technology aims to increase the proportion of women, in particular in management and academic staff. Therefore, qualified female applicants are explicitly encouraged to apply. Until a balanced ratio of men and women has been achieved, preference will be given to women if applicants are equally qualified.
