The Cluster of Excellence EXC 2120 on "Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture" (IntCDC) at the University of Stuttgart invites applications for the position of a

*** Independent Junior Research Group Leader in Computer Science for the Cluster of Excellence IntCDC (f/m/d) ***

EXC 2120 was newly established in 2019, with an initial funding period of seven years. A Cluster of Excellence is the most significant and substantial grant funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). For the first time, a Cluster of Excellence has been awarded to the field of architecture, bringing together a world-leading interdisciplinary team of researchers from seven faculties of the University of Stuttgart and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems.

To complement our research activities, we are seeking a highly motivated young scientist with an outstanding early-career track record and substantial international research experience in fields related to the aims of the cluster. A successful candidate should have a PhD degree in computer science or a similar area, and profound experience in one or more of the following or related topics:

* Human-computer interaction or human-robot interaction, in particular, for digital fabrication

* Augmented reality and mixed reality, especially, in the context of engineering domains 

* Visualization and visual analytics,  machine learning for visual data science

* Computer vision or robot perception

* Computational approaches for architecture and the building industry

A successful candidate will combine above computer science research with the application-oriented research on methods that support digitization in architecture and the building industry.

This research-focused position will lead a new Independent Junior Research Group within Research Unit IV (Computer Science and Robotics) of the Cluster of Excellence IntCDC. The establishment of a competitive research program is expected. The Research Group is expected to collaborate actively with the IntCDC partners at the University of Stuttgart and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems.

The Research Group is funded for up to three years, including the Group Leader position (TV-L E14), funds for PhD projects, as well as startup and annual budgets. The Research Group will be embedded into the Visualization Research Center (VISUS) at the University of Stuttgart and benefit from the support structures of VISUS and IntCDC, including access to several specific labs.
