The University of Bonn with two Clusters of Excellence, the Hausdorff Center
for Mathematics, and ImmunoSensation, intends to significantly strengthen
the existing collaborations between these two clusters and to establish an
internationally visible research group in the field of mathematical modeling in
life and medical sciences. In this context, it invites applications for
two temporary Professorships (W2) for 5 years
to be filled as soon as possible. A tenure-track option may be possible, and in
exceptional cases, a position may be tenured immediately. Alternatively, the
W2-positions will come with reduces teaching load (4 hours per week).
The positioning of the research group at the interface of two clusters of excellence
is expected to provide a unique opportunity to develop new and challenging
mathematical models with a significant impact on the understanding of the
immune system and immune-mediated diseases.
The new research group shall engage in efficient modeling of the complex
processes in medical and life sciences as well as in the mathematical analysis of
the involved mathematical structures. The range of possible topics includes -
but is not limited to - the analysis of information processing, the dynamics
of the immune response, modelling and optimization of treatment protocols,
or the interplay with genetics, sparse data problems in single cell approaches,
modelling and integration of multi-layer genomics data, predicting and
modelling cell behavior from perturbation experiments, analysis of two to
three-dimensional images including dynamic images in the context of immune
Applications should have a strong research background in applied mathematics
or theoretical life sciences, and a proven record and interest in mathematical
modelling in close collaboration with experimental researchers in life sciences.
Active cooperation in the excellent environment of both clusters is expected.
Depending on the respective research focus, candidates become members
of one of the mathematical institutes, or the Life & Medical Sciences Institute
(LIMES) of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, or the Bonn
Institutes of Immunosciences and Infection of the Faculty of Medicine at the
University of Bonn.
The general conditions of employment are according to §36 of the Higher
Education Act of North Rhine-Westphalia (Hochschulgesetz des Landes Nordrhein-
The University of Bonn is committed to diversity and equal opportunity. It is
certified as a family-friendly university and has a dual career service. It aims to
increase the proportion of women in areas where woman are under-represented
and to promote their careers in particular. It therefore strongly encourages
women with relevant qualifications to apply. Applications will be handled in
accordance with the Landesgleichstellungsgesetz (State Equality Act). Applications
from suitable individuals with a certified serious disability and those of equal
status are particularly welcome.
Applications should be sent, using our online application from
by September 30th, 2019 to Prof. Dr.
Anton Bovier, Institute for Applied Mathematics, Endenicher Allee 60, D-53115
