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. Christian Merdon) starting at at the earliest possible date.
The position is framed within the DFG funded project “Kopplung Atomistischer und Kontinuumsskaliger Modelle der Heterogenen Katalyse mittels eines Reduzierten-Basen-Ansatz und Mehrlevel-On-the-fly-Dünngitter-Interpolation”.
The applicant will work at an interdisciplinary project involving the modeling and simulation of multi-scale flow, transport and reaction processes in heterogeneous catalysis in cooperation with the Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck Society. The applicant is expected to perform active research in the development and numerical analysis of modern finite element and finite volume discretizations for partial differential equations and their implementation in the programming language Julia.
We therefore seek for an applicant who
- has a university diploma or master degree in mathematics or a closely related discipline
- has basic knowledge in numerics for partial differential equations
- has some experience with programming languages (desireably in Julia)
- is interested in working together with colleagues also from other disciplines.
Please direct scientific queries to Dr. C. Merdon (Christian.Merdon@wias-berlin.de).
The position is funded for a total of 36 months. This is a part-time position (75%) with a weekly working time of 29.25 hours, remunerated according to the TVöD Bund.
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 via our online job-application facility using the button “Apply online”.
The advertisement is open with immediate effect and will remain open until the position will be filled.
We are looking forward to your application!
