The University of Muenster (WWU) in Germany advertises two W1 JUNIOR 
PROFESSORSHIPS IN MATHEMATICS. These are positions for 3 years with the 
possibility of an extension for another 3 years.Applicants from both 
pure (theoretical) and applied mathematics are welcome. Applications 
from female mathematicians are particularly encouraged. The various 
mathematical institutes at the WWU are very keen to increase the 
percentage of women in research and teaching on their books, and they 
are under pressure to do so.

Deadline: 06.07.2016.//

Your application should be sent per email as a single pdf file to 
mathdek at uni-muenster.de//Format not clearly specified; probably cover 
letter, CV, list of publications, research statement and teaching 
statement are expected. Required: PhD in mathematics or closely related 
field, strong research profile, some teaching experience. Good knowledge 
of the German language is NOT a condition, but applicants should show 
some willingness to acquire it.

[Muenster is strong in topology; we have Arthur Bartels, Johannes Ebert, 
Michael Joachim and myself, Michael Weiss, as professors in topology, 
not to mention a few more in symplectic topology. Muenster is halfway 
between Hamburg and Bonn, i.e., 2-3 hrs by train to either one. It is 
part of the region NRW = North-Rhine Westphalia; the NRW Topology 
Meeting (<http://www.nrw-topology.de/>http://www.nrw-topology.de/) was 
patterned after the Midwest Topology Seminar. Muenster is also the most 
bike-friendly city in Germany.

In the German academic landscape, junior professorships are one step 
below permanent professorships. They come with teaching duties. They are 
sometimes tenure-track positions, more often not – in this case, they 
are not. My impression is that most junior professors end up as 
permanent professors in Germany but often at another university.]
