The Department of Mathematics (at the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer
Science and Physics) at the University of Innsbruck seeks to fill the
position of a full-time (40 hours per week) assistant professor as of
February 01, 2019. The position is limited to 6 years. However, a
tenure track agreement can be offered within the first year of
employment. Upon positive evaluation, the position is converted into a
tenured associate professorship. The position holder should carry out
excellent research on the mathematical foundations of deep learning
and neural networks, for example in connection to inverse problems,
optimization, or approximation theory. In addition to the acquisition
of third-party funding, cooperation with applied research groups are
to be established. Moreover, this is one of 12 career positions the
University of Innsbruck is creating in diverse scientific disciplines
connected to digitalization. The Development Plan 2019-2024 of the
University of Innsbruck includes the creation of a new,
interdisciplinary center for digitalization. The holder of the
position is expected to prepare and conduct teaching at university
level within the study programs of the department of mathematics (in
