OFFER DESCRIPTION

The CRC has been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) since 2015. Its goal is to analytically understand, numerically simulate, and eventually manipulate wave propagation under realistic scenarios by intertwining analysis and numerics.

Stability and the asymptotic behavior are central questions in the study of fluid dynamics and partial differential equations. Here in particular mixing effects have become a prominent field of research. On the one hand, mixing effects introduce very fine scales which pose major challenges for the modeling and stability analysis. On the other hand, these rapid oscillations also lead to cancellation and homogenization which has a stabilizing effect on the velocity field of a fluid — a phenomenon which is known as inviscid damping. Building on results for the Euler and the Vlasov-Poisson equations, a main objective of the project “Mixing and resonances in magnetic fluids” will be to extend these results to include magnetic interactions in fluids.

We seek for an ambitious doctoral researcher with an interest in partial differential equations and fluid dynamics. You will study the dispersive properties of mixing and learn about resonance effects in magnetic fluids. You will have the opportunity to attend conferences, workshops, and summer schools. Engagement in teaching is encouraged.

We provide 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. Our 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.

The following qualifications are required:

• Excellent Master or an equivalent degree in Mathematics.

• Strong background in one of the following fields: partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, mathematical physics.

• We expect good 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).

We offer an attractive and modern workplace with access to excellent facilities of KIT, diverse and responsible tasks, a wide scope of advanced training options, supplementary pension with the VBL (Pension Authority for Employees in the Public Service Sector), flexible working time models, a job ticket (BW) allowance, and a cafeteria/canteen.

We prefer to balance the number of employees (f/m/d). Therefore, we kindly ask female applicants to apply for this job. If qualified, severely disabled persons will be preferred.
