The Group of Mathematical Physics of the University of Lisbon, Portugal ( invites applications for a Post-Doctoral position in Mathematics within the scope of the Portuguese Science Foundation project \Schroedinger'sproblem and Optimal Transport: a multidisciplinary perspective" ,

The position is for 24 months, starting December 2019 or January 2020. The gross monthly salary is 1,509.80 Euros (this is almost twice the average salary in Lisbon) and there are no teaching duties associated with the position.

Factors preferred: PhD obtained after January 2014

Work plan: Generalization of the Schroedinger Problem and its initial probabilistic solution to the analogous case of mixed quantum states, i.e much more general evolution scenarios between arbitrary probabilistic data; Numerical analysis and simulation of those dynamics. Construction of a notion of Stochastic Integrability. Fluid Dynamics, where the Navier-Stokes equation is interpreted as a stochastic deformation of the Euler equation. Investigation of connections with the Benamou-Brenier approach, with particular emphasis on symmetries of the former equations.
