Technische Universität Dresden - School of Engineering Sciences, Lab Dresden Center for Intelligent Materials (DCIM)
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.
(Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E13 TV-L)
The position is offered in the field of Materials Informatics – data-driven approaches for materials research, starting at the next possible date and limited until December 31, 2022. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). An extension of the contract and further scientific qualification is planned, subject to results and availability of funding. The position offers the chance to obtain further academic qualification.
The Lab Dresden Center for Intelligent Materials (GCL DCIM) focuses on novel materials which are fundamental components of intelligent systems. Such systems autonomously feel, think and act through integrated sensor and actuator functionalities. The Lab consists of two research groups - Materials Informatics and Hierarchical Topologies - who closely cooperate.
The research group Materials Informatics is concerned with data-driven approaches for the description and integration of novel tailor-made active 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. 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. Additionally, Materials Informatics also includes the application of active materials as a means of information processing.
You will be part of a team of enthusiastic scientists who creatively pursue their individual research agenda in a startup-like open atmosphere, supported by the Dresden Center of Intelligent Materials and the School of Engineering Sciences at TU Dresden. Your research environment will include access to state-of-the-art and tomorrow’s research infrastructure, the promotion of gender equality and a family-friendly working environment. Through your work, you will be empowered to contribute to scientific progress through open science and communication.
