The Centre for Cognitive Science at Technische Universität Darmstadt
invites applications for a:
Professorship in “Perception” (W2/W3).
We are seeking an expert in perceptual research who will join us in
developing further the new Centre for Cognitive Science at Technische
Universität Darmstadt. The professorship is to be filled in the
Institute of Psychology within the Department of Human Sciences and will
complement and interact with existing research activities in Cognitive
Science at Technische Universität Darmstadt. The Centre interacts
strongly with the engineering departments and, hence, we expect
experience with interdisciplinary collaborations. The Centre’s research
programme is based on computational and engineering approaches to
Cognitive Science and relevant research methodologies will include, but
are not limited to, theoretical studies, human experimental work,
cognitive engineering applications, the use of machine learning and
artificial intelligence in the modeling of human cognition, or
ubiquitous sensing. Successful appointees are expected to contribute to
teaching in the new Cognitive Science study programme (in particular,
integrative and interdisciplinary classes) and to other undergraduate
and graduate level courses in the Department of Human Sciences.
The position is tenured with a remuneration package commensurate with
experience and qualifications, following the German “W-Besoldung” and
subject to negotiations between the applicant and the university
directorate. The regulations for employment are specified under §§ 61
and 62 HHG (Hessisches Hochschulgesetz).
The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of
female faculty members and encourages female candidates to apply. In
case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of
at least 50 or equal will be given preference.
The Technische Universität Darmstadt is certified as a family-friendly
university and offers a dual career program.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, list of publications,
copies of relevant diplomas, as well as a research and teaching
statement, preferably all in a single PDF file. Applications for the
position should be directed to the Dean of the Department of Human
Sciences, Professor Petra Grell (email@example.com). Please
include the code number of the position you apply for.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Constantin Rothkopf
