OFFER DESCRIPTION

The project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), starts on October 01, 2020. The aim of this project is to design high order numerical methods to simulate time-harmonic acoustic scattering problems, which are modelled by Helmholtz equations, in three-dimensional spaces. Numerical analysis and numerical experiments will be carried out to investigate both the convergence and efficiency of the newly proposed numerical methods.

We seek for an ambitious doctoral researcher with strong interest in the numerical methods for partial differential equations. The position is to be started on October 01, 2020. You will have the opportunity to attend conferences, workshops and summer schools. Engagement in teaching is encouraged.

The doctoral researcher will be integrated into the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1173 “Wave Phenomena” (waves.kit.edu ). The CRC provides an inspiring, attractive, interdisciplinary, and internationally recognized scientific environment with access to excellent facilities of the KIT, a wide scope of advanced training options within our integrated research training group, and flexible working time models. The CRC aims at the implementation of equal opportunities; it promotes diversity and supports persons with childcare or eldercare responsibilities as well as persons with disabilities. Funds for travel and guests are available through the CRC.

Personal qualification

The following qualifications are required:

  • Excellent Master or an equivalent degree in Applied Mathematics
  • Strong background in numerical methods for partial differential equations
  • Very good knowledge of programming (MATLAB, C++, ...)
  • If possible, basic knowledge of parallel computing
  • We expect excellent writing and oral communication skills in English along with the ability to work independently within an international team.
  • Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae,
  • a statement of research interest, contact information for two referees, and copies of degree certificate(s)
