Freie Uni­versität Ber­lin - Depart­ment of Math­em­at­ics and Com­puter Sci­ence | Insti­tute of Math­em­at­ics

Uni­versity Pro­fessor of Numer­ical Math­em­at­ics of Determ­in­istic and Stochastic Par­tial Dif­fer­en­tial Equa­tions

Salary grade: W3 or equi­val­ent
Ref­er­ence code: W3 Num­Math­Dif

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful applic­ant will cover research and teach­ing in the field of numer­ical math­em­at­ics of determ­in­istic and stochastic par­tial dif­fer­en­tial equa­tions.

Appoint­ment require­ments are gov­erned by Art­icle 100 of the Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act (Ber­liner Hoch­schul­ge­setz – Ber­lHG).

Suc­cess­ful can­did­ates should be able to demon­strate inter­na­tion­ally vis­ible, out­stand­ing research activ­it­ies on con­tem­por­ary top­ics of numer­ical math­em­at­ics of determ­in­istic and stochastic par­tial dif­fer­en­tial equa­tions and the related math­em­at­ical mod­el­ling of com­plex multiscale sys­tems, along with extens­ive, par­tially inter­na­tional, teach­ing exper­i­ence in the field. The abil­ity to teach in Ger­man and Eng­lish is essen­tial for this pos­i­tion. The applic­ants should also be able to demon­strate exper­i­ence in design­ing, acquir­ing, and lead­ing extern­ally fun­ded research pro­jects.

Along with the reg­u­lar offi­cial duties of pro­fess­ors lis­ted in Art­icle 99 of the Ber­lin Higher Edu­ca­tion Act, we expect the appointee to engage in the fol­low­ing activ­it­ies:

The new pro­fessor will con­trib­ute to solv­ing chal­len­ging research prob­lems across a broad spec­trum of applic­a­tions, amongst oth­ers from the nat­ural sci­ences or engin­eer­ing. They will also act­ively par­ti­cip­ate in the Cluster of Excel­lence MATH+, in the col­lab­or­at­ive research cen­ter CRC 1114 “Scal­ing Cas­cades in Com­plex Sys­tems,” and the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School (BMS). Moreover, the suc­cess­ful appointee should take respons­ib­il­ity for integ­rat­ing sci­entific com­put­ing based on solid math­em­at­ical ana­lysis in the math­em­at­ics and com­pu­ta­tional sci­ences Mas­ter’s degree pro­grams. They will also par­ti­cip­ate in under­gradu­ate teach­ing at the Bach­elor level (with courses that will be par­tially open to stu­dents from the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School) as well as in the depart­ment's courses for teach­ers of math­em­at­ics. They should also be pre­pared to fill any gaps in their know­ledge of Ger­man and/or Eng­lish within a period of three years after being appoin­ted. The appointee is also expec­ted to address gender and diversity issues within the scope of their teach­ing.

Applic­a­tions should include a CV, cop­ies of all cer­ti­fic­ates of aca­demic qual­i­fic­a­tion in Ger­man or Eng­lish; let­ters of appoint­ment (please add trans­la­tions if applic­able), a list of pub­lic­a­tions, a list of courses pre­vi­ously taught, and evid­ence of teach­ing aptitude. Please include inform­a­tion on involve­ment in ongo­ing and future research endeavors, joint research pro­jects, extern­ally fun­ded pro­jects, and, if neces­sary, lan­guage cer­ti­fic­ates. If applic­able, please provide inform­a­tion on part­ner­ships with industry, inven­tions/pat­ents, and spin-offs.

How to ap­ply:

All mater­i­als, includ­ing a per­sonal postal address and email address, must be received no later than Novem­ber 5th, 2020, prefer­ably elec­tron­ic­ally.
