Focusing Expertise – Shaping the Future: The Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA) is an innovative cooperation model between RWTH Aachen University
and Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH in Germany. This Alliance brings together an internationally respected university of technology and one of the leading
national research centres in Europe.
As a member of the Helmholtz Association, Forschungszentrum Jülich makes an effective contribution to solve major challenges our society is facing in the fields
of information, energy, and bioeconomy. They focus on varied tasks in the area of research management and utilize large, often unique, scientific infrastructures.
Come and work with around 6,100 colleagues across a range of topics and disciplines at one of Europe‘s largest research centres.
With its 45,000 students, 10,000 employees and innovative research areas, RWTH Aachen University is one of the leading academic and research institutions in
Europe. Both academics and research are structured to focus on international, practical, and interdisciplinary orientations.
The research performed at the Peter Grünberg Institute (PGI) of the Forschungszentrum Jülich ranges from physical concepts and emerging materials to novel nano
electronic devices. Supported by the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) and the Helmholtz Nanoelectronic Facility (HNF), a 1000 m2 clean room, PGI will further
strengthen its activities on neuromorphic computing for artificial intelligence by establishing two new institutes.
In this context RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich are jointly seeking
One Director of the Peter Grünberg Institute, Forschungszentrum Jülich – Institute of Neuromorphic Computing,
to be appointed as Professors (W3) in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at RWTH
The position will be appointed as Chair of
Neuromorphic Software Ecosystem
We are seeking a personality with the ability to head leading edge research for the
conception of software frameworks for exascale post- von-Neumann computing
systems. The envisioned system addresses the computing and communication
requirements of modern applications such as future artificial intelligence and the
simulation of biological neural networks. A background in engineering, computer
science, or physics with demonstrated scientific excellence in preferable more than
one of the following domains is desirable: operating systems, network and resource
mapping tools, compilers, as well as run-time management.
The objective of the institute is to scope and put in place the necessary software
stack meeting the challenging performance requirements as set forth by specific
applications of neuromorphic computing. This includes anticipating new features
brought by novel electronic devices of the hardware system like memristive
components or computing in memory. Furthermore, competences regarding
resilience of the software stack against faults and nondeterministic behaviour
of the overall system are also required. Close interaction and collaboration with
the new Institute of Neuromorphic Computing - Neuromorphic Compute Nodes
is required to ensure seamless interfacing of the developed hardware with the
broad software ecosystem of the community. A longer term vision should be the
integration of the jointly developed neuromorphic computing nodes and related
software components to the modular supercomputer concept of the Jülich
Supercomputing Centre (JSC). The institute is part of the Jülich Aachen Research
Alliance, Section Future Information Technologies (JARA-FIT) and the Chair will
be affiliated to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of
the RWTH Aachen University as a W3 position according to the Jülich model.
Besides a Ph.D. degree in a related area, an outstanding record of achievements as an independent researcher beyond the Ph.D. level is required for the positions.
The ability to form and lead an interdisciplinary research team is expected, including acquisition of competitive third-party funding. Teaching requirements of two
hours / week have to be fulfilled, by offering courses within the electrical engineering curriculum at RWTH Aachen University.
RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich are equal opportunities employers and pursue a policy of excluding all types of discrimination. Applications
from women scientists are particularly welcome. Applications from women will be given preference in the case of equal suitability, qualifications and experience, unless
special reasons concerning the person of a male candidate outweigh these considerations. Attention is drawn to Art. 8, Para. 1, of the Equal Opportunities Act of the
Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia (LGG). Forschungszentrum Jülich has been certified as family friendly as part of the „auditberufundfamilie“ initiative. RWTH
Aachen University awards its „FAMOS für FAMILIE“ prize to executive staff who have made a special contribution to family-friendly measures. Both institutions also
offer support for dual career couples. Upon acceptance of the position support is available from Human Resource Development in the form of comprehensive services.
Applications from suitable candidates with disabilities are explicitly encouraged. This also holds for those with an equivalent degree of incapacity in terms of Art. 2 Code
of Social Law (SGB) IX. RWTH Aachen University has been named a „disability-friendly“ employer for its commitment to training and employing disabled people.
Applications should be in English and should be sent with the usual documentation (CV, copies of certificates, list of publications, teaching experience, brief summary of
previous research activities including a list of acquired third-party funding, research concept for the advertised position),
by the 27-01-2020, to (e-mail preferred):
