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
“Numerics for innovative semiconductor devices”
(Head: Dr. Patricio Farrell) starting January 1, 2024.
Field of work: The aim of the position is to work on numerical discretization methods for partial differential equations (finite volume methods) in the semiconductor field. In particular, perovskites will be studied together with our project partners of Imperial College London and Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.
We are looking for: A PhD in mathematics or a related field is expected. Furthermore, the candidate should have worked with at least one programming language (such as e.g. Matlab, Python, C++, Julia) and have a decent command of the English language. It is desirable if the candidate has experience with team work, knowledge of the finite volume method to numerically solve partial differential equations well as an interest in interdisciplinary research.
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 Dr. Patricio Farrell (Patricio.Farrell@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.
We are looking forward to your application!
