The Institute for Mathematical Stochastics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Georg-August-University of Göttingen invites applications for a

PostDoc Position (all genders welcome)

starting from September 1, 2020 or later for the duration of two years. The salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale (E13 TV-L) at 100% of the regular working hours (currently 39.8 hours per week).

We are looking for highly-motivated applicants with an excellent PhD thesis in mathematics who have a significant background in spatial stochastic processes and/or spatial statistics. Their research work may range anywhere from purely theoretical to fairly applied. An interplay of both along with good programming skills is an asset.

The advertised position is associated with the Chair of Spatial Stochastics of Prof. Dominic Schuhmacher. The PostDoc is expected to enter actively in research collaborations at the institute within topics of spatial stochastic processes and spatial statistics. Such topics include correlation and
mixing in (marked) point processes, Wasserstein distances between point process distributions, convergence behaviour of point processes and random graphs evolving in time, point process statistics, neural networks for point process data. Teaching duties include support for the remodeled lecture cycle "Spatial Stochastics" as well as exercise classes and the supervision of seminars for an equivalent of 4 hours a week in total during the semester. Good English skills are important.

In addition the position offers the possibility to do own independent research. Finishing a habilitation or the willingness to work toward it is very welcome.

Mathematicians from outside Germany are particularly encouraged to apply. The University of
Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and supports their employees in balancing work and family life. The mission of the University is to employ a greater number of severely disabled persons. Applications from severely disabled persons with equivalent qualifications will be given preference.

Please send your application with the usual documents (motivation letter, CV, publication list, diplomas etc.) as a single pdf file (in electronic form) to e-mail: Application deadline: August 7, 2020
