Junior Research Group Leaders

AICES will offer several new positions at the Junior Research Group Leader level starting in late 2012. Possible areas include:

Generous funding for Ph.D. students is secured through a grant by the German Research Association (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). A parallel (6-year) appointment as "Junior Professor" is possible at a suitable department of the RWTH Aachen University. Funding for doctoral students is included, and the teaching duties are relatively small. The positions are paid according either to W1 (Junior Professor) or to the German civil service TV-L 15 scale including standard benefits. In the latter case, the salary depends on experience and is competitive with similar position in Europe.

The successful canditate is expected to set up an independent research program supported by internal and external funding. A doctoral degree in the broad field of computational engineering science and a strong research record is required. Additionally, 1 to 4 years of postdoctoral experience are desired as well as substantial experience outside Germany. The ideal candidate should work in an area complementary to the existing groups. Knowledge of German is not required.

The AICES graduate school was established under the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments to promote novel research and training in the field of computational engineering science. The school is a collaboration of 15 university institutes, the Jülich Supercomputer Center, and the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research. AICES organizes the doctoral education of ca. 80 students, as well as about 12 independent junior research groups. AICES provides excellent computational facilities and a dynamic service team. The working language is English.
