Institut für Spanende Fertigung

Open Topic Professor (W1) with W2 tenure track

With 6,300 employees in research, teaching and administration and its unique profile, TU Dortmund University shapes prospects for the future: the interaction between engineering and natural sciences as well as social and cultural studies drives both technological innovations and progress in knowledge and methodology. It is not only the roughly 34,300 students who benefit from this.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering with its focus on production and logistics as well as their digitization fosters a highly cooperative, interdisciplinary research and teaching culture. Here you will work in an environment which places great emphasis on supporting each other and working together. At the earliest opportunity, we want to appoint an

Open Topic Professor (W1) with W2 tenure track

with an expertise that matches the Faculty’s focus and mission.

We are seeking a personality with an international academic record in production and logistics as well as their digitization evidenced by an excellent doctorate and publications in recognised organs, including those employing peer-review.

Applicants should complement the research activities of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and contribute to interdisciplinary collaborative research projects within and outside TU Dortmund University.

Experiences in raising third-party funds or in conducting third-party funded projects are an asset.

An appropriate contribution to the faculty’s curriculum is expected.

The successful candidate will possess social and leadership skills and be willing to be involved in academic self-governance.

The recruitment requirements are based on § 36 and § 37 HG NRW (law governing universities in NRW). The appointment is initially for three years as a temporary civil servant. In the course of the third year, this status will be reviewed and may be extended for a further three years depending on performance.

At the end of this six-year junior professorship at the latest, the tenure track will lead to continued employment as a tenured W2 university professor, provided that the necessary aptitude, competence and academic performance have been demonstrated and that the legal requirements pertaining to § 38 HG NRW are met.

TU Dortmund University strives to increase the number of women in academic research and teaching and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

TU Dortmund University is an equal opportunity employer and gives preference to candidates with disabilities if equally qualified.

TU Dortmund University supports the compatibility of work and family life and promotes gender equality in science.

This professorship is funded by the Tenure Track Programme of the German Federal G overnment and the Federal States.
