Directors lead their individual research groups, and also provide

strategic direction for the institute, mentor junior faculty, and take

turn in chairing the faculty. A successful candidate is an

internationally recognized leader in the research community, and

pursues a compelling and far-reaching research vision.

All areas related to the study, design, and engineering of software

systems are considered. These areas include, but are not limited to,

security and privacy, embedded and mobile systems, social computing,

large-scale data management, programming languages and systems,

software verification and analysis, parallel and distributed systems,

storage systems, and networking. Preference will be given to

candidates whose research complements existing strengths.

MPI-SWS, founded in 2005, is part of a network of 82 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:

a) Faculty independently lead a team of graduate students and

post-docs. They have full academic freedom and publish their research

results freely. Substantial base funding complements third-party

funds.

b) Faculty supervise doctoral theses, and have the opportunity to

teach graduate and undergraduate courses.

c) Faculty are provided with outstanding technical and administrative

support facilities as well as internationally competitive compensation

packages.

MPI-SWS currently has 10 tenured and tenure-track faculty and 50

doctoral and post-doctoral researchers. The institute is funded to

support 17 faculty and up to 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.

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 are invited to send a CV and cover letter to

rupak@mpi-sws.org. The review of applications will begin on Feb 1,

2014; applications will continue to be accepted until the position is

filled.
