Postdoc position in the DFG research unit FOR3022 „Ultrasonic Monitoring of Fibre Metal Laminates Using Integrated Sensors“

A three year research position (100%, according to TVL E13 pay scale) at the postdoc-level is available at the Institute of Analysis and Algebra at the TU Braunschweig in the group of Prof. Lorenz. The position is to be filled as soon as possible.

The successful candidate will work in the project „Model-based damage analysis“ within the Research Unit FOR3022 „Ultrasonic Monitoring of Fibre Metal Laminates Using Integrated Sensors“ funded by the DFG. The project is concerned with the inverse problem of damage identification in fibre metal laminates by guided waves.

A strong background in numerical analysis is required, preferably numerical method for partial differential equations. Knowledge in inverse problems is a plus.

Eligibility criteria:

◼ Candidates must – at the date of recruitment – have obtained a PhD degree in mathematics, computational engineering or computer science with a focus on scientific computing and, as a basis, a master’s degree in the respective field.
◼ Candidates must have very good knowledge of English – knowledge of German is a plus but not a must.
◼ Candidates should have programming skills in MATLAB, Python, Julia or a comparable language. Experience with finite-element software is a plus.

The TU Braunschweig especially encourages women to apply for the position. We promote diversity and integration and strives in all areas and positions to reduce under-representation in the sense of the NGG. Therefore, severely handicapped applicants are preferred if they have the same qualifications (proof must be enclosed). Application costs including travel expenses cannot be reimbursed.
