Position: Junior Group-Leader Position (f*m)
Institution: Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften
Location: Wien, Austria
Duties: Development of a long-term research perspective in mathematics, signal processing and machine learning, motivated by applications in acoustics as well as building on the current research foci, extending them and developing new ones; Leading the new group, organizing research projects, and managing the resources in order to achieve research outstanding outputs of the group; Supporting the whole cluster Mathematics in administrative ways as its speaker and manager; Closely collaborating with the other working groups of ARI in interdisciplinary projects; Striving for innovative scientific research expanding ARI's multidisciplinary research portfolio within the Mathematics cluster
Requirements: A PhD (or equivalent degree) and commensurate research experience as a senior researcher; Relevant experience in a mathematical topic (with significant publications and projects) with a strong connection to applications in acoustics, being complementary (and supplementary) to the existing research foci at the ARI.

Text: Job ID: ISF121JGL121 The Acoustics Research Institute ( ARI ), an interdisciplinary research institution of the of the Austrian Academy of Sciences ( OeAW ), invites applications for a J UNIOR G ROUP - L EADER P OSITION ( F * M ) for a new group within the Mathematics cluster of the Acoustics Research Institute (full - time / 40h per week, tenure - track) for researchers in Application - oriented Mathematics in Acoustics . mathematics, signal processing and machine learning. A close interaction ARI's clusters (organized in working groups) allows innovative research approaches based on the synergy from multidisciplinarity and creates concepts that stimulate the individual research fields. As part of the OeAW, ARI is focused towards high - impact research comparable to Max - Planck or CNRS institutes. T he cluster Mathematics comprises of the working group Frame Theory and Implementation (headed by ARIâs director P. Balazs), various project groups, and will be supplemented by the new group headed by the successful candidate. Duties of the new group leader : ⢠Development of a long - term research perspective in mathematics , signal processing and machine learning , motivated by applications in acoustics as well as building on the current research foci, extending them and developing new ones ⢠Leading the new group, organizing research projects, and managing the resources in order to achieve research outstanding outputs of the group ⢠Supporting the whole cluster Mathematics in administrative ways as its speaker and manager ⢠Closely collaborating with the other working groups of ARI in interdisciplinary projects ⢠Striving for innovative scientific research expanding ARI's multidisciplinary research portfolio within the Mathematics cluster ⢠Developing research proposals as well as acquire research grants in order to fund a significant proportion of the group's research with external funding ⢠journals ⢠Participating in events aimed at introducing the scientific work to t he general public, e.g. Long Night of Research or Noise Awareness Day ⢠Supporting the instituteâs director in his administrative duties´, e.g. by being an active member in ARIâs steering committee ⢠Be an active part in ARI, supporting the team character Details of Position The position of a junior group leader for a new group within the cluster Mathematics of ARI can be compared to a tenurable professorship but with fewer administrative and no strict teaching duties, in order to allow the successful candidate to focus on research. It is a tenure - track position. The annual gross salary will be ⬠54.661,32 according to the collective agreement of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW). In exceptional cases a higher starting salary is possible. The contract will be for a duration of four years, with a potential follow - up to two years. During this period the candidate will apply for tenure assessme nt by the OeAW. With a positive tenure assessment evaluation, the position will be tenured. Successful applicants must have: ⢠A PhD (or equivalent degree) and commensurate research experience as a senior researcher ⢠Relevant experience in a mathematical topic (with significant publications and projects) with a strong connection to applications in acoustics, being complementary (and supplementary) to the existing research foci at the ARI. Thereby a connection to the fo llowing topics are advantageous: Machine Learning, Numerics, Convex and non - convex optimization, Sparsity / Compressive Sensing, Information Theory, Harmonic Analysis, Signal Processing, Operator Theor y. ⢠Significant experience at acquiring project funding and a high potential to attract substantial external project funding in the future ⢠Experience in leading PhD students and postdocs ⢠- record appropriate to the applicants' career stage, including significant publications ⢠A high potential to cooperate with at least two other work groups at ARI ⢠Demonstrated research independence, maturity, and willingness to work in a team Applicants will be ranked higher if they ⢠have already shown multi - disciplinary approaches (reaching outside their main discipline). ⢠have significant publications in mathematics and in acoustics. ⢠have shown experience in leading a research group and being involved in administrative and organizational duties. ⢠show high potential to extend the research focus of the Mathematics cluster. The application process is divided into 2 stages: Applicants are required to submit in the first stage (STAGE 1): ⢠experience and their fit to this call, the institute and interaction with the other working groups of ARI ⢠Curriculum Vitae (5 pages) ⢠A list of all publications ⢠recommendation After this stage, 5 to 10 candidates will be short - listed and invited for the second stage. Short - listed candidates will be asked to submit in the second stage (STAGE 2): ⢠A short description of previous research activities. ⢠A research plan (up to 15 pages) for the group. ⢠A list of the ten most important publications with short summaries explaining their relevance for the application at ARI, including bibliometric data. Selection Process STAGE 2 applications will be sent to reviewers asking to apply the following selection criteria: ⢠Excellence of the candidate describi overview. Further the strategy how to integrate in and interact with the multi - disciplinary research environment of ARI, a plan for the acquisition of research funding, and optional required additional infrastructure and their financial support. ⢠approaches: ⢠Financial planning and management ability: This process can be terminated at any stage if no outstanding a pplication is available. Contact Submit applications before January 31, 2022 to office@kfs.oeaw.ac.at .
