The University of Stuttgart is one of Germany’s leading technically oriented universities in one of Europe’s most vibrant high-tech and industrial areas. The university is a reliable employer and partner for technology transfer and is committed to the interdisciplinary integration of engineering, natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences based on the fundamentals of cutting-edge research at a disciplinary level.

The professorship focuses on mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of hydrosystems. It contributes to the development of novel models to describe single- and multi-phase flow and transport processes in porous media both in the environmental context and in technical applications. The professorship can collaborate in research and teaching with surrounding research facilities, particularly the Research Facility for Subsurface Remediation (VEGAS) and the Porous Media Lab (PML) at the University of Stuttgart.

The professorship will be located at Faculty 2: “Civil and Environmental Engineering” at the Institute for Modelling Hydraulic and Environmental Systems (IWS) and also within the Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science (SC SimTech) with its Cluster of Excellence EXC 2075 “Data-integrated Simulation Science (SimTech)” and the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1313 “Interface-driven multi-field processes in porous media - flow, transport, and deformation”.

The person to be appointed represents the field of hydromechanics in the basic German and English study programs of Faculty 2 and in the study program Simulation Technology. Active participation in SimTech, the SFB and Faculty 2 activities is expected.

We are looking for highly motivated researchers focusing on hydromechanics with an early-career track record built on an excellent dissertation, internationally visible publications, and experience in mathematical and numerical modeling of hydrosystems.

The new professor should also contribute to teaching in her/his broader field of expertise, participate in academic processes and committees, and acquire external project funding.
