Work­ing field:

The pos­i­tion requires research and teach­ing in the area of numer­ical meth­ods for par­tial dif­fer­en­tial equa­tions. Areas of research expert­ise of applic­ants should include but are not lim­ited to:
  • Math­em­at­ical ana­lysis of mod­ern meth­ods for the numer­ical approx­im­a­tion of com­plex prob­lems in PDEs
  • Devel­op­ing effi­cient and robust meth­ods for solv­ing PDEs
  • Applic­a­tions of PDEs in the nat­ural and engin­eer­ing sci­ences.
Teach­ing will be required in all math­em­at­ical degree pro­grams (includ­ing under­gradu­ate) and in the ser­vice teach­ing of math­em­at­ics for other pro­grams. Teach­ing require­ments must be met in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Can­did­ates are expec­ted to super­vise stu­dents’ theses on bach­elor, mas­ter and PhD level as well as to par­ti­cip­ate in the aca­demic admin­is­tra­tion of the uni­versity.


Can­did­ates must have earned a doc­tor­ate in math­em­at­ics, sat­isfy the require­ments for a pro­fess­or­ship accord­ing to § 100 Ber­lHG (have out­stand­ing aca­demic cre­den­tials, an excep­tional record of ground­break­ing research in the area of numer­ical meth­ods for par­tial dif­fer­en­tial equa­tions, i.e. pub­lic­a­tions in ref­er­eed journ­als, demon­strated lead­er­ship in their pro­fes­sional com­munit­ies, and a com­mit­ment to excel­lence in teach­ing and all aca­demic duties asso­ci­ated with our bach­elor, mas­ter and doc­toral pro­grams.

The area of research expert­ise should allow co-oper­a­tions with the cur­rent pro­fess­ors at the Insti­tute of Math­em­at­ics as well as par­ti­cip­a­tion in cur­rent and future col­lab­or­at­ive research activ­it­ies. An act­ive par­ti­cip­a­tion in the ongo­ing col­lab­or­at­ive research cen­ters, i.e. the Ein­stein Cen­ter for Math­em­at­ics, the research cen­ter Math­eon and the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School (BMS) is expec­ted as is exper­i­ence in apply­ing for research grants and col­lab­or­at­ive research activ­it­ies.

Applic­ants must show teach­ing exper­i­ence at uni­versity level in the field of math­em­at­ics and in par­tic­u­lar in the area of numer­ical meth­ods for par­tial dif­fer­en­tial equa­tions. Addi­tional exper­i­ence in advising and super­vising bach­elor, mas­ter and doc­toral stu­dents is expec­ted. Exper­i­ence in teach­ing math­em­at­ics to non-math­em­at­ics stu­dents and in lead­ing large research groups is desired.
