Professor of Multimodal Transport Systems and Traffic Safety Technische Universität Braunschweig Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering intends to appoint a

Professor (salary scale W3)
"Multimodal Transport Systems and Traffic Safety"

as soon as possible as successor of Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. h.c. mult. Eckehard Schnieder.

According to the research focus of the TU Braunschweig on mobility and transport,
the scientific fields of activity of the professorship will be in the following areas:

 Basics for methodological development of automated transport systems
■ Security and reliability in automated transport systems
■ Systemic observation of multimodal transport systems
■ Assessment capability of multimodal transport technologies

Within these scientific fields of activity the professorship "Multimodal Transport Systems
and Traffic Safety" is expected to formulate principles for the development and the safe
operation of automated transport systems, including the increasingly important
collaboration of transport modes in a multimodal transport system. Through scientific
research and academic teaching, the professorship is intended to contribute to road safety
in partly and fully automated transport systems based on refined descriptions, methods
and tools.

The professorship "Multimodal Transport Systems and Security" is a central professorship
of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The professorship is spatially and thematically
integrated into the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFF) of the Technische
Universität Braunschweig and addresses with the aforementioned activity fields essential
questions of future mobility and transport systems. Thus, the professorship plays an
important role in further strengthening and profiling the TU Braunschweig in this area.
The TU Braunschweig is looking for a candidate with expert knowledge in several of the
listed research areas and personal experience from several years of professional activity
in industry, university or research institutions. The successful candidate will have the ability
to realise, coordinate and manage interdisciplinary research work very committedly. She or
he will have experience in the acquisition of external funding in a national and international
environment as well as excellent educational and didactic skills.

Given the highly interdisciplinary nature of the research area the candidate will be
expected to be a person with a strong motivation to work closely within the Faculty of
Mechanical Engineering and within the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen
(NFF). Furthermore, the successful candidate will be expected to cooperate closely with
other institutes and scientific centers of the TU Braunschweig across all faculties. Of
further particular importance is the continuation and expansion of intensive regional
cooperation with the institutes of the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
The Technische Universität Braunschweig is a member of the Science Alliance
Braunschweig-Hannover. Candidates are therefore expected to be willing to participate in
coordinated interdisciplinary programs and to cooperate with the technically oriented
universities in Lower Saxony, particularly in the context of the master plan MOBILISE -
Mobility in Engineering and Science.

Conditions of appointment are in accordance with § 25, Niedersachsen Higher Education
Act (NHG). Part time employment can be arranged on request.
As an equal opportunities employer, Technische Universität Braunschweig has set itself
the strategic aim of significantly increasing the proportion of women. Female scientists are
therefore particularly encouraged to apply. Equally qualified candidates with disabilities will
be given preference.

Successful candidates who have reached the age of fifty by the time of appointment and
whodo not already have civil servant status will be given an employment contract.
The Technische Universität Braunschweig is committed to a policy of equal opportunity.
Applications from women are therefore particularly welcome. Applications from scientists
from abroad are as well especially welcome. Disabled persons will be given preference in
conformity with the Equal Opportunities Policy of the university.

Further information can be obtained from the chairman of the appointment committee,
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Dröder, Tel. +49 (0) 531 391-7600.

Written applications (including CV, list of publications, list of secured external funding or
industrial project responsibilities and giving brief details of the research and teaching
concept) should be directed no later than 31 January 2017 to the

Technische Universität Braunschweig
Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
