The Max Planck Institute for Informatics, as the
coordinator of the Max Planck Center for Visual
Computing and Communication (MPC-VCC), invites applications for
Junior Research Groups Leaders
in the Max Planck Center for
Visual Computing and Communication
The Max Planck Center for Visual Computing
and Communications offers young scientists
in information technology the opportunity to
develop their own research program addressing important problems in areas such as image
communication, computer graphics, geometric
computing, imaging systems, computer vision,
human machine interface, distributed multimedia architectures, multimedia networking, visual
The center includes an outstanding group of
faculty members at Stanford’s Computer Science
and El¬ectrical Engineering Departments, the
Max Planck Institute for Informatics, and Saarland University.
The program begins with a preparatory 1-2
year postdoc phase (Phase P) at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, followed by a two-year appointment at Stanford University (Phase I) as a visiting assistant professor, and then a position at the
Max Planck Institute for Informatics as a junior
research group leader (Phase II). However, the program can be entered flexibly at each phase, commensurate with the experience of the applicant.
Applicants to the program must have completed an outstanding PhD. Exact duration of the
preparatory postdoc phase is flexible, but we typically expect this to be about 1-2 years. Applicants
who completed their PhD in Germany may enter
Phase I of the program directly. Applicants for
Phase II are expected to have completed a post-doc stay abroad and must have demonstrated
their outstanding research potential and ability
to successfully lead a research group.
Reviewing of applications will commence on
November 1, 2011. The final deadline is Decem-
ber 31, 2011. Applicants should submit their CV,
copies of their school and university reports, list
of publications, reprints of five selected publica-
tions, names of references, a brief description of
their previous research and a detailed description
of the proposed research project (including possi-
ble opportunities for collaboration with existing
research groups at Saarbrücken and Stanford) to:

max Planck institute for software
systems (mPi-s Ws)
Applications are invited for tenure-track and
tenured faculty positions in all areas related to
the study, design, and engineering of software
systems. These areas include, but are not limited
to, data and information management, program-
ming systems, software verification, parallel,
distributed and networked systems, and embed-
ded systems, as well as cross-cutting areas like
security, machine learning, usability, and social
aspects of software systems. A doctoral degree in
computer science or related areas and an
outstanding research record are required.
Successful candidates are expected to build a
team and pursue a highly visible research agenda, both independently and in collaboration with
other groups. Senior candidates must have demonstrated leadership abilities and recognized international stature.
MPI-SWS, founded in 2005, is part of a network of eighty Max Planck Institutes, Germany’s
premier basic research facilities. MPIs have an
established record of world-class, foundational
research in the fields of medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, technology and humanities. Since
1948, MPI researchers have won 17 Nobel prizes.
MPI-SWS aspires to meet the highest standards of
excellence and international recognition with its
research in software systems.
To this end, the institute offers a unique environment that combines the best aspects of a
university department and a research laboratory:
MPI-SWS currently has 11 tenured and tenure-track faculty, and is funded to support 17
faculty and about 100 doctoral and post-doctoral
positions. Additional growth through outside
funding is possible. 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.

Department of Computer Science
Tenure-Track Faculty Position
Applications are invited for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level beginning August 2012. Candidates are expected
to have a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely
related field and to demonstrate potential for
excellence in teaching and research. Candidates
with research interests in human-centered computing, including human-computer interaction,
software engineering, information integration
and informatics, and health-related computing,
will receive the strongest consideration; however, excellent candidates in other areas will be
The Department has 320 undergraduates in
three degree programs (Computer Science, Computer Systems Science and Software Engineering)
and approximately 50 M.S. and Ph.D. students.
One of the Department’s current goals is to increase diversity among its undergraduate majors.
Faculty research interests include artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, computer architecture,
compilers, distributed systems, embedded and
multimedia systems, graphics and visualization,
human computer interaction, parallel computing, security and software engineering. In addition, the Department has a central role in the
interdisciplinary Computational Science and Engineering Ph.D. program which fosters research
and teaching in the application of computer science to engineering and scientific problems.
The Department is housed in Rekhi Hall
which includes space for graduate student and
faculty offices, instructional labs, and classrooms. The facility also houses faculty research
labs, including space for human-computer interaction, virtual reality, artificial intelligence,
graphics and visualization, compilers and architecture, and computer security.
Michigan Technological University is a research university with approximately 7,000
students and 400 faculty with educational and
research programs in computing, engineering,
physical and social sciences, forestry, humanities and business. Michigan Tech is located in
Michigan’s scenic Upper Peninsula and is surrounded by Lake Superior and nearby forests.
The community offers year-round recreational
and cultural opportunities. This environment,
combined with a competitive compensation
package and a low cost of living, results in an excellent quality of life.
