The Mathematics Institute at the University of Bern, Switzerland, invites applications for a postdoc position in the applied and numerical mathematics group of Professor Thomas Wihler.
Candidates are expected to hold a PhD in mathematics and to demonstrate excellent research potential in areas that will complement and extend the work of the group. Topics of interest include all aspects of numerical analysis and related fields, with a particular focus on the development and analysis of modern numerical methods for the efficient treatment of applications, or on the mathematical aspects of scientific computing.
Besides contributing to the vibrant research environment in the Mathematical Institute, the successful applicant will teach one or two courses per academic year. Individuals with some previous teaching experiences are thus particularly encouraged to apply. A professional command of English language is mandatory and some knowledge of German is also preferred.
Appointments are made for one year, renewable on a yearly basis for up to three years, if performance is satisfactory. A competitive salary will be commensurate with experience in accordance with the university’s policies.
The starting date of the position is flexible; however, the beginning of 2022 or earlier would be ideal. Review of applications will begin immediately, and the position will remain open until filled.
Applicants are required to submit a CV, bibliography/publications list, a short statement of research and teaching background (max. 1 page total). Letters of recommendation are optional and welcome.
