The Cluster of Excellence EXC 2075 "Data-Integrated Simulation Science (SimTech)" at the University of Stuttgart invites applications for several positions of
Independent Junior Research Group Leaders in Data-Integrated Simulation Science (f/m/d)
EXC 2075 was established in 2019 in the framework of the German Excellence Strategy with an initial funding period of seven years. It builds on the previous EXC 310 which ran from 2007-2018 establishing the University of Stuttgart as a world leading research center for simulation technology. A Cluster of Excellence is the most significant and substantial grant for collaborative research funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). SimTech is the only Cluster with a research agenda of integrating simulation science and data science into a new paradigm bringing together interdisciplinary teams of researchers from seven faculties at the University, nearby academic institutions, and international research groups.
To complement our research activities, we are looking for highly motivated young scientists with an outstanding early-career track record (typically two years after obtaining a doctorate) and substantial international research experience in fields contributing to the Cluster’s research agenda. Successful candidates have received excellent academic degrees in engineering, natural sciences, computer science, mathematics or in related areas and have acquired profound experience in one or more of SimTech’s areas of expertise: multi-phase flows, porous media, engineered and biological structures, particle simulation, systems and control, machine learning, computational mathematics, scientific and high-performance computing, visualization, traceable adaptive infrastructures. We encourage excellent young scientists from other academic fields related to simulation and data science to apply.
Selected junior researchers will start and lead a new independent group within the Cluster of Excellence which will be funded for up to four years, including the group leader position (TV-L E14), funds for doctoral projects (TV-L E13), as well as start-up funds and annual budget. The new groups are expected to establish a competitive research program that contributes to the Cluster’s success by collaborating with other SimTech researchers within one of the seven project networks https://www.simtech.uni-stuttgart.de/en/research/networks/.
Please submit your application before 17 April 2020 by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a single PDF attachment comprising cover and motivation letter, academic CV, list of publications, 3-page description of past and future research activities, degree certificates and transcripts of records from Bachelor/Master/PhD degrees. Applications and two reference letters should be addressed to Prof. Dr. Thomas Ertl, Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science, University of Stuttgart, Pfaffenwaldring 5a, 70569 Stuttgart. An application form can be found here below the offer. Please be aware of the risks regarding confidentiality and the integrity of your application contents when sending your application via unencrypted e-mail.
The University of Stuttgart is an equal opportunity employer. Applications by women are strongly encouraged. Severely challenged persons will be given preference in the case of equal qualifications. The University of Stuttgart has established a Dual Career Program to assist the partners of those moving to Stuttgart.

W1-Professorship “Sustainability and Usability of Simulation Software”
Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science I At the earliest convenience
This junior professorship will be established at the University of Stuttgart through the DFG Cluster of Excellence EXC 2075 “Data-integrated Simulation Science (SimTech)”. It will be jointly appointed at the Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science (SC SimTech) and the Faculty of Computer Science, Information Technology and Electrical Engineering and linked closely to the group “Simulation of Large Systems”. The professorship is expected to represent the field Software Development in Scientific Computing in research and teaching, with a special focus on sustainability, maintainability, usability, efficiency and parallel scalability of numerical simulation software. Further aspects are testing and validation of simulation software, user and developer friendly documentation and configuration interfaces, and minimally invasive application programming interfaces. We look for applicants with substantial, internationally visible research contributions in the development of open source simulation software (libraries or frameworks) in at least one of the following areas:
- coupling software for multi-physics simulation on high performance computing systems
- grid frameworks for partial differential equations or particle simulation
- finite element frameworks for partial differential equations
- solver libraries for sparse nonlinear or linear systems of equations
- solver libraries for gradient based optimization and data assimilation
We expect the research to be integrated into the project networks of EXC SimTech. Active participation in further interdisciplinary projects of the university like in DFG-funded collaborative research centers or in the state-funded Cyber Valley Initiative is highly welcome. The visibility of the new research group should be advanced by actively raising third party funding both from public agencies as well as from the industrial environment of Stuttgart. The new professor will contribute to teaching in the Bachelor and Master programs in Computer Science and Simulation Science and with courses for students in other faculties.
In line with the Higher Education Act of the State of Baden-Württemberg (LHG §51) applicants are required to provide evidence of research qualification (usually by means of an excellent PhD dissertation) and teaching experience. Junior professors are appointed for four years, with a possible extension to six years after an evaluation.
Please submit your application before 24th April 2020 by e-mail to email@example.com with one PDF attachment comprising a curriculum vitae, academic degrees and certificates, full list of publications, research and teaching statements, three selected publications as well as the application form. Applications should be addressed to Prof. Dr. Thomas Ertl, Stuttgart Center of Simulation Science, University of Stuttgart, Pfaffenwaldring 5a, 70569 Stuttgart. Further information and the application form can be found here: https://www.simtech.uni-stuttgart.de/karriere/jobs/.
