To this end, the institute offers a unique environment that combines the best aspects of a university department and a research laboratory:
a) Faculty receive generous base funding to
build and lead a team of graduate students and
post-docs. They have full academic freedom and
publish their research results freely.
b) Faculty have the opportunity to supervise
doctoral theses, teach graduate and undergraduate courses, and have the flexibility to incorporate
teaching into their research agenda.
c) Faculty are provided with outstanding technical and administrative support facilities as well as internationally competitive compensation packages.
Funds have been committed to grow the institute to a strength of 17 tenured and tenure-track
faculty, and about 100 doctoral and post-doctoral
positions. Additional growth through outside
funding is expected. We maintain an open, international and diverse work environment and seek
applications from outstanding researchers regardless of national origin or citizenship. The working
language is English; knowledge of the German language is not required for a successful career at the
institute. The institute is located in Kaiserslautern
and Saarbruecken, in the tri-border area of Germany, France and Luxembourg. The area offers a high
standard of living, beautiful surroundings and easy
access to major metropolitan areas in the center of
Europe, as well as a stimulating, competitive and
collaborative work environment. In immediate
proximity are the MPI for Informatics, Saarland
University, the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, the German Center for Artificial Intelligence
(DFKI), and the Fraunhofer Institutes for Experimental Software Engineering and for Industrial
Mathematics. Qualified candidates should apply
online at http://www.mpi-sws.org/application. The
review of applications will begin on January 12,
2009, and applicants are strongly encouraged to
apply by that date; however, applications will continue to be accepted until February 27, 2009.
The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the representation of minorities, women
and individuals with physical disabilities in Computer Science. We particularly encourage such
individuals to apply.
