Technische Universität Darmstadt is establishing a Centre for Cognitive 
Science and invites applications for 4 tenured professorships.
The Centre’s research programme will be based on computational and 
engineering approaches to Cognitive Science, with strong interactions 
with the engineering departments. Research methodologies will include, 
but are not limited to, theoretical studies, human experimental work, 
cognitive engineering applications, the use of big data, and ubiquitous 
sensing. The professorships are to be filled in the Department of Human 
Sciences (Institutes of Psychology and of Sports Science) and in the 
Department of Computer Science, and will complement and interact with 
the existing research activities in Cognitive science at Technische 
Universität Darmstadt.

The four positions are to be filled in the following areas:

1) One professorship (W2/W3) in the Institute of Sports Sciences in the area

     Sensorimotor Control & Learning

2) two professorships (W2/W3) in the Institute of Psychology in the areas

     Decision Making & Preference or
     Models of Higher Cognition (e.g. reasoning, natural language, 
learning and memory),

3) and one professorship (W3) in the Department of Computer Science in 
the areas

     Machine Learning or
     Biosignal Processing (e.g. prosthetics, brain-computer interface).

Successful appointees are expected to contribute to teaching in the 
study programme for cognitive science, which is currently being 
developed, and to the undergraduate and graduate level courses of their 
respective departments.

The positions are tenured with a remuneration package commensurate with 
experience and qualifications, following the German "W-Besoldung". The 
regulations for employment are specified under §§ 61 and 62 HHG 
(Hessisches Hochschulgesetz).

The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of 
female faculty members and encourages female candidates to apply. In 
case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of 
at least 50 or equal will be given preference.

The Technische Universität Darmstadt is certified as a familiy-friendly 
university and offers a dual career program.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, list of publications, 
copies of relevant diplomas, as well as a research and teaching 
statement, preferably all in a single PDF file. Applications for the 
positions in the Institute of Sport Science and the Institute of 
Psychology should be directed to the Dean of the Department of Human 
Sciences, Professor Frank Hänsel (dekanat at humanw.tu-darmstadt.de); 
applications for the position in Computer Science should be directed to 
the Dean of the Department of Computer Science, Professor Reiner Hähnle 
(dekanat at informatik.tu-darmstadt.de). It is possible to apply for 
several of the positions. Please include the code number of the 
position(s) you apply for.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Constantin Rothkopf 
(Tel +49 6151 16-76084; rothkopf at psychologie.tu-darmstadt.de) or 
Professor Jan Peters (Tel +49-6151-16-7351; peters at ias.tu-darmstadt.de).
