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 “Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computing”(Head: Prof. Dr. Volker John, Supervisor: Dr. Alfonso Caiazzo) starting at May 1st, 2021 or at the earliest possible date thereafter.
The position is framed within the DFG funded project “Computational Multiscale Methods for the Inverse Estimation of Effective Properties of Poroelastic Tissue”, a collaboration between the WIAS and the Chair of Computational Mathematics of the University of Augsburg (Head: Prof. Dr. Daniel Peterseim).
The project aims to develop computational multiscale models and inversion algorithms to support modern clinical imaging techniques based on Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE). MRE combines magnetic resonance images with mathematical and physical models in order to recover, in vivo and non-invasively, information about the elastic behavior and mechanical parameters of human tissues. The purpose of the project is to develop novel mathematical descriptions of vascularized tissues and efficient computational tools for numerical simulations and for the solution of related inverse problems.
The research will build on the existing collaboration with the MRE group at the Department of Radiology of the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin (Prof. Dr. Ingolf Sack) and the Department Diagnostische und Interventionelle Radiologie of the Universitätsklinikum Augsburg (Prof. Dr. med. Thomas Kröncke).
We are looking for candidates with a master’s degree and a strong background in computational mathematics and scientific computing, with interest in medical applications. Prior knowledge in continuum mechanics, homogenization theory, or finite element methods are beneficial.
Please direct scientific queries to Dr. A. Caiazzo (Alfonso.caiazzo(at)wias-berlin.de ).
The position is funded for a total of 36 months between the WIAS (months 1 to 18) and the University of Augsburg (months 19 to 36). This is a part-time position (75%) with a weekly working time of 29.25 hours, remunerated in Berlin according to the TVöD. The remuneration in Augsburg is based on the collective agreement there.
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 and photocopies of relevant certificates as soon as possible and no later than 25.04.2021 via our online job-application facility using the button “Apply online ”.
We are looking forward to your application!
