The Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) is an institute of the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V. (FVB). The FVB comprises seven non-university research institutes in Berlin which are funded by the federal and state governments. The research institutes are members of the Leibniz Association.
WIAS invites applications for a
PhD student position (f/m/d)
in the Research Group “Partial Differential Equations” (Head: Professor Alexander Mielke) starting as soon as possible.
It is the goal of this position to explore the connection between mechanical deformations of solids and reaction-diffusion processes via partial differential equations. The range of problems includes consistent modeling of this connection for specific applications (e.g. in semiconductor theory or growth of biological tissue), the mathematical wellposedness (existence and properties of solutions) via functional analytical methods, and the derivation of effective models.
We are looking for candidates with a master’s degree in mathematics and a strong background in applied analysis. In particular, a very good knowledge in the area of partial differential equations and functional analysis is required. Prior knowledge in the calculus of variations, continuum mechanics and/or the modeling with partial differential equations is beneficial. A willingness to work interdisciplinary with researchers from different fields (e.g. physics or biology) is also desirable.
Please direct scientific queries to Dr. M. Liero (matthias.liero(at)wias-berlin.de ).
The appointment is for 36 months. The reduced work schedule is 29,25 hours per week, and the salary is according to the German TVöD Bund scale.
The Weierstrass Institute is an equal opportunity employer. We explicitly encourage female researchers to apply for the offered position. Among equally qualified applicants, disabled candidates will be given preference.
Please upload complete application documents including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, relevant certificates and the master thesis (as draft if not finalized yet) as soon as possible and no later than May 16, 2021 via our online job-application facility using the button “Apply online ”.
We are looking forward to your application!
