The Centre for Cognitive Science at Technische Universität Darmstadt 
invites applications for a
Professorship in "Sensorimotor control & Learning" (W2/W3)

We are seeking an expert in the research area of sensorimotor control 
and learning who will join us in developing further the new Centre for 
Cognitive Science at Technische Universität Darmstadt. The professorship 
is to be filled in the Department of Human Sciences and will complement 
and interact with existing research activities in Cognitive Science at 
Technische Universität Darmstadt. The Centre interacts strongly with the 
engineering departments and, hence, we expect experience with 
interdisciplinary collaborations. The Centre’s research programme is 
based on computational and engineering approaches to Cognitive Science 
and relevant research methodologies will include, but are not limited 
to, theoretical studies, human experimental work, cognitive engineering 
applications, the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in 
the modeling of human cognition and motor control, or ubiquitous 
sensing. Successful appointees are expected to contribute to teaching in 
the new Cognitive Science study programme (in particular, integrative 
and interdisciplinary classes) and to other undergraduate and graduate 
level courses in the Department of Human Sciences.

The position is tenured with a remuneration package commensurate with 
experience and qualifications, following the German "W-Besoldung" and 
subject to negotiations between the applicant and the university 
directorate. 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 family-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 
position should be directed to the Dean of the Department of Human 
Sciences, Professor Petra Grell (dekanat at humanw.tu-darmstadt.de). Please 
include the code number of the position you apply for.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Constantin Rothkopf
