The Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) is an institute of the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V. (FVB). The FVB comprises eight non-university research institutes in Berlin which are funded by the federal and state governments. The research institutes belong to the Leibniz Association.
WIAS invites applications for a
PostDoc position (f/m/d)
in the Leibniz Junior Research Group
“Probabilistic Methods for Dynamic Communication Networks”
(Head: Prof. Dr. B. Jahnel) starting as soon as possible.
Field of work: The aim of the position is to perform rigorous probabilistic and analytic mathematical work on dynamical spatial random geometric systems as models for future telecommunication networks, in collaboration with other group members and our partners at WIAS, in industry and in academia. The research results shall be published in scientific journals and technical reports, and presented at conferences.
We are looking for: A applicant must at a minimum hold a master’s degree in mathematics or related fields with high emphasis on probability. The PhD in mathematics should be completed or very close to completion and assumption of project responsibility is desired. Knowledge in statistical physics, interacting particle systems, or stochastic geometry will be important.
What we offer:
- WIAS Berlin is a premier research institution known for its strength in mathematical mod-eling, optimization, dynamical systems, and applied mathematics in general.
- Payment according to the collective agreement for the public service (TVöD Bund) includ-ing the usual social benefits (30 vacation days in a 5-day week, company pension plan); subsidy for the company ticket for public transport
- Mobile working
- A certified (Audit berufundfamilie) family-friendly work environment.
- Berlin offers endless opportunities to enjoy life outside work. Neither the job nor living in Berlin requires German language (although WIAS offers free German courses). We highly welcome international applications. Scientifically, Berlin offers a rich landscape with numer-ous opportunities for research, as well as job prospects in academia and industry.
Please direct scientific queries to Prof. Dr. B. Jahnel (Jahnel@wias-berlin.de).
This is a full-time position and initially limited to two years. The salary is according to the TVöD scale.
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.
