With 6.700 employees in research, teaching and administration and its unique profile, TU Dortmund University shapes prospects for the future: the cooperation between engineering and natural science as well as social and cultural studies promotes both technological innovations and progress in knowledge and methodology, which not only the roughly 32.440 students benefit from.
This position is to be filled in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Chair of Reliability Engineering as soon as possible for a limited period of 3 years. According to public tariff regulations, the salary is based on tariff group E13 TV-L. Employment in or reduction to part-time is possible in principle. The position to be filled in aimed at obtaining a “Doctor” title within a reasonable timeframe.
YOUR TASKS: The PhD research is situated in the quickly advancing field of “Imprecise Probabilities” and it is aimed at developing methods for the modelling of spatial- and time-dependent uncertainties under limited data. Your tasks will include performing basic scientific research in the domain of spatiotemporal uncertainty modelling under scarce data with applications in mechanical engineering, regular presentation of research results at symposia and conferences, as well as in scientific journals, assumption teaching duties (4 SWS) in the broad field of reliability engineering and provide support of the Chair.
WE OFFER: The possibility to perform cutting-edge research in a scientific domain at the cross-roads of numerical simulation, applied mathematics, engineering and computational mechanics, with the possibility to obtain a PhD degree, a solid supporting international network; strong scientific and personal development and training opportunities, to be a member of an international and dynamic team.
