The Institute of Probability and Statistics in the Department of Mathematics and Physics invites applications for a University Professorship (Salary Scale W3 NBesO)
in Actuarial Mathematics starting on July 1st, 2018.
Applicants should be internationally recognized scientists in actuarial mathematics. Their research should make significant contributions to both mathematics and its applications to insurance, for example in the area of quantitative risk management. They are expected to engage in interdisciplinary scientific collaboration with the areas of economics, law and engineering.
The position is part of the newly founded House of Insurance at Leibniz Universität Hannover. Initially four faculty positions in mathematics, economics and law will be part of this center. The successful candidate should significantly contribute to the activities of the House of Insurance, including research projects, teaching, grant applications and interdisciplinary projects besides the close cooperation with regional insurance corporations on applied research questions relevant to industry practice. We are seeking applicants with strong communication and management skills. Teaching includes courses for students in our mathematical programs and our teacher training program as well as mathematical courses for students in other programs of study.
Conditions of appointment are in accordance with § 25, Niedersachsen Higher Education Act (NHG). Part-time employment can be arranged on request. As an equal opportunities employer, Leibniz Universität Hannover has set itself the strategic aim of significantly increasing the proportion of women. Female scholars are therefore particularly encouraged to apply. Applications from abroad are especially welcome. Equally qualified candidates with disabilities will be given preference. In its mission statement, Leibniz Universität Hannover attaches great importance to the international orientation of teaching and research. At the same time, it places major value on the intensive guidance and support of its students and on the university’s close ties to the region and to Niedersachsen. Its professors are thus expected to take up residence in the Region of Hannover. Successful candidates who have reached the age of fifty by the time of appointment and who do not already have civil servant status will be given an employment contract.
