Junior Research Groups (W1/W2)
within the Cluster of Excellence “Multimodal Computing and Interaction” which
was established by the German Research Foundation (DFG) within the framework
of the German Excellence Initiative.
The term “multimodal” describes the different types of digital information such as
text, speech, images, video, graphics, and high-dimensional data, and the way it
is perceived and communicated, particularly through vision, hearing, and human
expression. The challenge is now to organize, understand, and search this multi-modal information in a robust, efficient and intelligent way, and to create dependable systems that allow natural and intuitive multimodal interaction. We are looking
for highly motivated young researchers with a background in the research areas of
the cluster, including algorithmic foundations, secure and autonomous networked
systems, open science web, information processing in the life sciences, visual
computing, large-scale virtual environments, synthetic virtual characters, text and
speech processing and multimodal dialog systems. Additional information on the
Cluster of Excellence is available on
http://www.mmci.uni-saarland.de. Group leaders will receive junior faculty status at Saarland University, including the right to
supervise Bachelor, Master and PhD students. Positions are limited to five years.
Applicants for W1 positions (phase I of the program) must have completed an outstanding PhD. Upon successful evaluation after two years, W1 group leaders are
eligible for promotion to W2. Direct applicants for W2 positions (phase II of the
program) must have completed a postdoc stay and must have demonstrated outstanding research potential and the ability to successfully lead their own research
group. Junior research groups are equipped with a budget of 80k to 100k Euros per
year to cover research personnel and other costs.
Saarland University has leading departments in computer science and computational linguistics, with more than 200 PhD students working on topics related to
the cluster (see
http://www.informatik-saarland.de for additional information). The
German Excellence Initiative recently awarded multi-million grants to the Cluster of
Excellence “Multimodal Computing and Interaction” as well as to the “Saarbrücken
Graduate School of Computer Science”. An important factor to this success were
the close ties to the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, the German Research
Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), and the Max Planck Institute for Software
Systems which are co-located on the same campus.
Candidates should submit their application (curriculum vitae, photograph, list
of publications, short research plan, copies of degree certificates, copies of the
five most important publications, list of five references) to the coordinator of the
cluster, Prof. Hans-Peter Seidel, MPI for Computer Science, Campus E1 4, 66123
Saarbrücken, Germany. Please, also send your application as a single PDF file to
The review of applications will begin on January 15, 2010, and applicants are
strongly encouraged to submit applications by that date; however, applications will
continue to be accepted until January 31, 2010. Final decisions will be made following a candidate symposium that will be held during March 8 – 12, 2010.
