For the CRC 1173 “Wave phenomena – analysis and numerics”, we are currently seeking to recruit, as soon as possible, limited to two years, several Postdoctoral Researchers (f/m/d) In the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1173
»Wave phenomena: analysis and numerics«
The CRC is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) since 2015. Its goal is to analytically understand, numerically simulate, and eventually manipulate wave propagation under realistic scenarios by intertwining analysis and numerics. See http://www.waves.kit.edu for a list of participating scientists and project descriptions.
We seek postdoctoral researchers to work in the area of wave phenomena, in particular on the analysis or numerics of nonlinear partial differential equations. You will work on your research project and you have the opportunity to attend conferences, workshops and summer schools. Engagement in teaching is possible.
We provide an inspiring, attractive, interdisciplinary, and internationally recognized scientific environment with access to excellent facilities of the KIT, a wide scope of advanced training options (e.g., preparation for DFG or ERC grants), and flexible working time models. Our CRC aims at the implementation of equal opportunities, it promotes diversity and supports persons with childcare or eldercare responsibilities as well as persons with disabilities. Funds for travel and guests are available through the CRC.
The following qualifications are required seeking your consideration for this position:
