PhD Position R1-1

The RTG π3 is a collaborative project between mathematicians of the Center for Industrial Mathematics (ZeTeM); mathematicians in analysis, topology, and statistics; and applied scientists of the University of Bremen. We invite applications for a Ph.D. position (75% of a full position) in the area of dynamic inverse problems and applications in tomography in the framework of project R1-1: Singularities in dynamic data.

Industrial or medical applications often require to identify characteristics of objects from observations, e.g. properties of human hearts observed via computer tomography. From a mathematical point of view, this process can often be modeled as an inverse problem. As the dependence between the measured data and the searched-for characteristics is quite often non-continuous, these inverse problems are challenging. This project aims at combining state-of-the-art techniques in microlocal analysis with methods from dynamical systems theory to overcome some of the still existing obstacles in solving such inverse problems.

We are searching for an enthusiastic and committed researcher with an interest in dynamical systems methods and advanced analysis in applications as well as in developing and applying new mathematical models and algorithms. Within the research training group, the Ph.D. student will be part of the Institute for Dynamical Systems at the Department 3 (Mathematics and Computer Science) of the University of Bremen, working under the supervision of Prof. Anke Pohl.

 

Requirements:

  • M.Sc. or equivalent degree with excellent grades in mathematical sciences or related fields.
  • Skills in scientific computer programming.
  • Experience in the fields of microlocal analysis, dynamical systems, and transfer operator techniques is advantageous.
  • Industry or research internships are advantageous.
  • Fluency in English.
  • Desire to work in an international and interdisciplinary team.

 

The position is for a fixed term of 3 years. The earliest starting date for each position in the research training group is the 1st of October 2022. The salary is according to the German federal employee scale TV-L E13, 75% of a full position (i.e., approximately € 1.900 – 2.100 monthly net income). This call is open until all positions are filled.

Applicants are invited to submit their letter of motivation including a reference to Ph.D. project R1-1, an extended CV including copies of certificates, a publication list (as far as applicable), one recommendation letter from a math professor, and contact information of two more scientists as possible referees.

The recommendation letter should be sent by the math professor directly to us (pi3-applicationprotect me ?!mathprotect me ?!.uni- bremen.de), while the application file should only include her/his name and affiliation.

All relevant documents, quoting the official reference number A 106/22, should be submitted by April 25, 2022,

– preferably electronically as a single PDF file to pi3-applicationprotect me ?!math.uni-bremenprotect me ?!.de – to the π3-coordination: Dr. Daniel Otero Baguer, Zentrum für Technomathematik, Universität Bremen, Bibliothekstr. 5, 28359 Bremen.

The University of Bremen has received a number of awards for its gender and diversity policies and is particularly aiming to increase the number of female researchers. Gender equality will be given special emphasis within this research training group. Applications from female candidates, international applications, and applications of academics with a migrant background are explicitly welcome.

Disabled persons with the same professional and personal qualifications will be given preference.
