Saarland University is seeking to establish several

Junior Research Groups (W1/W2)

within the recently established Excellence Cluster "Multimodal Computing and Interaction" which was established by the German Research Foundation (DFG) within the framework of the German Excellence Initiative. The term "multimodal" describes the different types of digital information such as text, speech, images, video, graphics, and high-dimensional data, and the way it is perceived and communicated, particularly through vision, hearing, and human expression. The challenge is now to organize, understand, and search this multimodal information in a robust, efficient and intelligent way, and to create dependable systems that allow natural and intuitive multimodal interaction. We are looking for highly motivated young researchers with a background in the research areas of the cluster, including algorithmic foundations, secure and autonomous networked systems, open science web, information processing in the life sciences, visual computing, large-scale virtual environments, synthetic virtual characters, text and speech processing and multimodal dialog systems. Additional information on the excellence cluster is available on and from each of the principal investigators. Group leaders will receive junior faculty status at Saarland University, including the right to supervise Bachelor, Master and PhD students. Positions are limited to five years. Applicants for W1 positions (Phase I of the program) must have completed an outstanding PhD. W1 groups are staffed with one additional researcher. Upon successful evaluation after two years, W1 group leaders are eligible for promotion to W2. Direct applicants for W2 positions (Phase II of the program) must have completed a postdoc stay and must have demonstrated outstanding research potential and the ability to successfully lead their own research group. W2 groups are staffed with two researcher positions. Saarland University has leading departments in computer science and computational linguistics, with more than 200 PhD students working on topics related to the cluster (see for additional information). The German Excellence Initiative recently awarded multi-million grants to the excellence cluster "Multimodal Computing and Interaction" as well as to the "Saarbrücken Graduate School of Computer Science". An important factor to this success were the close ties to the MPI for Informatics, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), and the MPI for Software Systems which are co-located on the same campus. The Saarland University is an equal opportunities employer. In accordance with its policy of increasing the proportion of women in this type of employment, the University actively encourages applications from wo en. For candidates with equal qualification, preference will be given to people with physical disabilities. Applicants should submit their application (curriculum vitae, list of publications, short research plan, copies of degree certificates, copies of the five most important publications) to the postal adress shown below.
