Professorship (W3) for Machine Components
INSTITUTE FOR MACHINE COMPONENTS I AT THE EARLIEST CONVENIENCE The professorship is associated with the management of the Institute of Machine Components (IMA). A close cooperation and coordination in research and teaching with the existing professorship "Railway Vehicle Technology" at the institute is expected. A cooperation with colleagues within faculty 7 and other faculties is desired.The tasks of the professorship include teaching and research in the field of smart, reliable machine components in mechanical and vehicle engineering. At component and module level, the focus is on researching and developing new types of machine elements that take into account new additive manufacturing processes and which, in addition to the existing mechanical capabilities, can generate sensor-based information and execute actuator-based actions to enable self-regulating and autonomous systems. The description of the machine elements shall be integrated into a model-based development methodology. In addition, the reliability of the smart machine elements and, based on this, a general reliability assurance of intelligent systems is to be considered. Implementation of sealing technology is preferable and an application in vehicle powertrains is desired. Active participation in the university profile areas "Production Technologies" and "Simulation Science" as well as in the potential area "Autonomous Systems" is expected. Teaching commitments include significant participation and further development in design teaching in the Bachelor's programmes in mechanical engineering and vehicle and engine technology and further courses in the field of machine components and reliability technology in higher Bachelor's semesters or in the various Master's programmes of the two mechanical engineering faculties. The CAD training centre StutCAD is assigned to the institute.We are looking for a personality who is outstanding in the above-mentioned research topics through high-ranking scientific publications or patents with international visibility and who has made outstanding contributions to the development of machine components. Furthermore, several years of industrial activity with experience in research and development projects as well as in the management and motivation of employees are expected. A list and description of the three most important achievements (publications, patents, projects) in relation to the professorship should be attached to the application documents. The requirements for employment listed in § 47 and § 50 Baden-Württemberg university law apply.
