The Institute of Mathematical Stochastics of the Department of Mathematics
of the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, Germany,
invites applications for a
W2-Professorship for Mathematical Stochastics
to be filled on April 1, 2020.
(A W2-Professorship is comparable to an Associate Professorship)
We are looking for an internationally renowned scientist in the field of applied statistics or applied
probability, complementing the current research profile of the Institute of Mathematical Stochastics.
Connections to other mathematical fields of the department, as well as to the other departments or
centers of excellence of the university (dynamical systems and biosystems engineering as well as neurosciences)
are also desirable.
The successful candidate is expected to participate in the teaching duties of the department including courses
of the Bachelor and Master programmes in “Mathematics” and “Statistics” resp. “Applied Statistics” as well
as service for other departments. For the core teaching program the teaching language is German, while for
some service courses proficiency in English is required. The willingness and ability to collaborate with the
existing research groups of the department and the university will be essential.
Formal prerequisites for the appointment are set out especially in § 35 of the Higher Education Act for the
Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt (Hochschulgesetz Sachsen-Anhalt, HSG LSA).
The Otto-von-Guericke-University aims to increase the proportion of women scientists within the university
and specifically encourages women to apply. Applications from disabled persons will be given priority in
the case of equal suitability.
