Professor of Computational Engineering (M/F)

University of Luxembourg

The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University.

The University of Luxembourg, Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication is looking for outstanding candidates committed to excellence in research and teaching, open to interdisciplinary work, and helping to develop an emerging academic institution.

Professor of Computational Engineering (M/F)

Area: Data-Driven Modelling and Simulation in Engineering Mechanics

  • Ref. F1-130017
  • Permanent contract, 40hrs/week, Starting date: As soon as possible
  • Employee status 


  • The candidate will reinforce and complement the research of the computational engineering research institute (within the Research Unit in Engineering Sciences) by creating bridges with the other research units involved in computational and data sciences: the Mathematics Research Unit, the Computer Science and Communications Research Unit, High-Performance Computing and other cognate disciplines. The candidate will be expected to engage in multi-disciplinary computational and data science activities across all faculties of the University.
  • She/He will be involved in teaching at the Bachelor, Master, and PhD level. 


  • The candidate must hold a PhD in Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or a related field and must have a post-doctoral experience of at least six years. Experience in PhD supervision is essential, as lead or co-supervisor (it is expected that the candidate supervised or co-supervised a handful of students to completion already).
  • The successful candidate has a strong research record in modeling and simulation with firm groundings within applied mathematics, preferably at the interface between engineering mechanics, mathematics and computer science. Preference will be given to candidates showing significant results at the basic research level outlined by highly cited publications. Examples of research directions include data compression such as model order reduction, multi-scale problems, error estimation, model selection and machine learning for data-driven modeling and simulation. Possible applications in materials science, through collaborations with the Physics and Materials Science Research Unit are a plus.

The University of Luxembourg is set in a multilingual context. It is desired that the successful candidate will have a working knowledge in at least two of the following languages: English, French, and German. However, it is also possible to obtain proficiency in a second language after being hired as the University provides access to language classes. A basic knowledge of French has to be acquired during the first two years.

The University offers competitive salaries. The University of Luxembourg is an equal opportunity employer.

Please send your application letter and attachments (in PDF format, including a detailed curriculum vitae, list of publications, a short research statement and a short teaching statement) in English, with clear referral to the concerned position to the Dean of the Faculty, using the email address:

You can also send your application by ordinary mail, including a DVD with PDF attachments, to the following address: 

Prof. Dr. Paul Heuschling
Université du Luxembourg – Campus Kirchberg
