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 are members of the Leibniz Association.
WIAS invites applications for a
Research Assistant Position (f/m/d)
in the Weierstrass Junior Research Group
“Modeling, Analysis, and Scaling Limits for Bulk-Interface Processes”
(Head: Dr. M. Thomas) starting at April 1st, 2021.
The aim of the position is the analysis of mathematical models describing the flow of non-Newtonean fluids with rate-independent dissipation using methods for nonlinear partial differential equations and variational methods. The research goals shall be achieved in collaboration with other group members and our partners at WIAS and in academia. The research results are to be published in scientific journals and to be presented at conferences.
The applicant is expected hold a master’s degree in mathematics or related fields as well as a completed PhD degree. Expertise in methods for the analysis of partial differential equations, linear and nonlinear functional analysis, variational methods, as well as sound knowledge of methods for the analysis of the dynamics of non-Newtonean fluids are necessary prerequisites for the successful work on this position.
Please direct scientific queries to Dr. M. Thomas (Marita.Thomas@wias-berlin.de).
The appointment is limited for 9 months. The work schedule is 39 hours per week, and the salary is according to the German TVoeD scale.
