Full Professorship (W3) for Engineering of Functional Materials

The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Freiburg invites applications for a

Full Professorship (W3) for Engineering of Functional Materials

at the new Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering (INaTech), to be filled as soon as possible.

The professorship is expected to focus on sustainable, resource-saving materials, for example polymer composite materials. The focus should be on material design and processing, i.e., fundamental processing technology guided by modelling and experiment. It will be advantageous to contribute projects to the Freiburg Center for Interactive Materials and Bioinspired Technologies (FIT) with its infrastructure (roll-to-roll polymer technology, 3D visualization with tomography) and to use generative fabrication methods available at the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK). The professorship is expected to establish cooperations with the other core activities at the Faculty of Engineering. Collaborations with the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy and with the local Fraunhofer Institutes are welcome. Furthermore the new professorship shall play an active role in planning and establishing the Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering.

Teaching by the professorship will contribute to the interfaculty Master of Science program Sustainable Materials and the planned curricula in the area of Sustainable Systems Engineering.

We are looking for an internationally recognized personality. Candidates should have considerable experience in networking, fund raising, in particular through industrial cooperation, and the willingness to participate in coordinated research programs This professorship is also suitable as a starting position for highly qualified early career researchers.

Prerequisites for the employment of Professors are a university degree, an outstanding dissertation and an excellent publication record. Substantial achievements and experience in academic research and teaching, at the level of a Habilitation according to the German academic system, are expected.

The University of Freiburg seeks to increase the number of female scientific faculty members and therefore strongly encourages qualified women to apply for the position. The university is committed to providing a family-friendly workplace.
