TU Dresden is among the top universities in Germany and Europe and one of the eleven German universities with the status of a ‘University of Excellence’. As part of its strategic development, TU Dresden seeks to form strong, interdisciplinary links by extending computational science approaches across various disciplines. In this context,

three (3) chairs (W3) in the broad area of “Interdisciplinary Digital Science for Healthy Human Development”

are to be filled as soon as possible.

Research in digital and computational methods at the interface between human, natural, technical, and medical systems is an important component of the interdisciplinary, cross-departmental research at TU Dresden. Using computational methods, the three chairs will investigate emergence in heterogeneous complex adaptive systems as they pertainto healthy human development. In particular, this includes applications in the areas of (1) biomedical, (2) neuroscience, and (3) social collective systems with diverse human and technical constituents. In the context of the Synergy of Systems (SynoSys) Department of the newly founded Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Science (CIDS), the three chairs will collaborate in the development, application, and transfer of innovative computational methods for explaining, forecasting, engineering, and optimizing emergence, self-organization, and synergy between complex human, natural, and technical systems under the umbrella theme of “healthy human development”.
