Technische Universität Dresden - School of Engineering Sciences
The TU Dresden is one of eleven German universities that were identified as an “excellence university”. TUD has about 36.500 students and almost 5319 employees, 507 professors among them, and, thus, is the largest university in Saxony, today.
Having been committed to sciences and the engineering before the reunification of Germany, TU Dresden now is a multi-discipline university, also offering humanities and social sciences as well as medicine.
Research Associate / Group Leader
(Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 14 TV-L)
The newly established Lab Dresden Centre for Intelligent Materials (DCIM) offers in the field of Materials Informatics – data-driven approaches for materials research a position starting at the next possible date and limited until 31.12.2022. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG).
The Lab Dresden Centre for Intelligent Materials (GCL DCIM) is focused on novel materials which, as a central component of intelligent systems, feel, think and act autonomously through integrated sensory and actuator functionalities. It initially consists of the two research groups Hierarchical Topologies – structures with material-inherent control functions and Materials Informatics – data-driven approaches for materials research and is intended to establish complementary competencies and to develop promising future research areas.
The research group Materials Informatics is concerned with data-driven approaches for the description and integration of novel tailor-made materials. Modern materials research requires an integrative and multidisciplinary approach, which increasingly relies on methods from mathematics and computer science in addition to traditional approaches from chemistry, physics and engineering. In particular, machine learning and the evaluation of "big data" are essential for tomorrow's materials research and related engineering sciences. The development of strategies for materials discovery and development are therefore the focus of Materials Informatics.
You will be part of a team of enthusiastic scientists who will creatively pursue their individual research agenda, inspired by the innovative approach and support of the Centre. Your research environment will include access to state-of-the-art research infrastructure, the promotion of gender equality and a family-friendly working environment.
