Zahlenplattform Imaginary.org: So spektakulär ist Mathematik

Junior Professorship (W1) on Computational Methods for Uncertainty Quantification

Mon Mar 04 14:25:00 CET 2013; Sylvia Zur

The University of Stuttgart with its 24,000 students and 7,000 employees is one of the leading European Research Universities with a main focus on engineering and natural sciences.
The University of Stuttgart is committed to excellent basic and applied research and interdisciplinary academic education.

At the Stuttgart Research Centre of Simulation Technology, funded at the University of Stuttgart in the frame of the excellence initiative of the German state and federal governments as Cluster of Excellence ExC 310 Simulation Technology (SimTech), the following junior-professorial positions is offered:

Junior Professorships (W1) on Computational Methods for Uncertainty Quantification 

at the Institute of Applied Analysis and Numerical Simulation (Faculty 8: Mathematics and Physics)

or at the Institute of Hydromechanics and Modelling of Hydrosystems (Faculty 2: Civil and Environmental Engineering)


The Junior Professor strengthens the field stochastic modelling and quantification of uncertain problems in continuum mechanics. The position is located at the interface between applied mathematics and engineering sciences. Prospective research fields in mathematics are all related aspects of probability theory and model-based numerical simulation. In engineering it is expected that the professor satisfies the demands of one or more relevant applications. This includes in particular fluid flow and dynamical processes in porous media.


General Remark:

The Junior Professors are expected to participate in the teaching obligations of their institute and to present courses within the BSc/MSc-degree programme Simulation Technology.

Applications with the usual documents (CV, degree certificates, references, publication list, selected off-prints) should be sent to the Coordinator of the Cluster of Excellence in Simulation Technology, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Ehlers, Institute of Applied Mechanics (CE), Pfaffenwaldring 7, 70569 Stuttgart, Germany, to arrive not later than 31 March 2013.

The University of Stuttgart has established a Dual Career Program to offer assistance to partners of those moving to Stuttgart. For more information please visit the web-page under:  www.uni-stuttgart.de/dual-career/

The University of Stuttgart is an equal opportunity employer. Applications of women are strongly encouraged. Severely challenged persons will be given preference in case of equal qualifications.
