PostDoc Position at Univ. Göttingen

The Research Training Group RTG 2088 “Discovering Structure in Complex Data: Statistics Meets Optimization and Inverse Problems” (Speaker: Prof. Dr. Gerlind Plonka-Hoch) at the Georg-August University Göttingen offers a

PostDoc Position (all genders welcome)

as soon as possible for three years. The salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale (E13 TV-L) with 100% of the regular working hours (currently 39.8 hours per week).

The research projects in this RTG focus on new mathematical concepts for the efficient reconstruction and classification of relevant structural information in data sets, without reconstructing the entire information inherent in the data. One of the guiding principles of this RTG consists of discovering and rigorously exploiting structural a priori information in order to obtain the desired information. Methodically, specific emphasis is laid upon the interplay between approaches in statistics, optimization, and inverse problems. Most of the proposed PhD projects in the RTG arise from signal or image processing applications in biology, medicine or engineering. For more information about our RTG, please check out our website: https://www.uni-goettingen.de/de/514290.html

We are looking for a postdoc who has strong expertise related to at least one of the fields inverse problems, optimization, mathematical statistics, data analysis, probability theory, computational topology or mathematical signal and image processing, but showing considerable breadth in her/his previous research and a willingness to explore new topics.

Candidates should fulfill the following requirements:
– An excellent Master’s degree or equivalent qualification, followed by a doctorate in mathematics with a strong publication record;
– A strong background in one of the mathematical disciplines covered by the RTG;
– Very good English skills (written and spoken);
– Willingness to work in interdisciplinary teams;
– Good programming skills are beneficial.

The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and supports their employees in balancing work and family life.The mission of the University is to employ a greater number of severely disabled persons.

PhD position at TU Braunschweig

The group of Prof. Dirk Lorenz at the Institute of Analysis and Algebra has an open (possible two, depending on grant approval) PhD position for a Scientific Assistant (75% TV-L EG13).  The position is available from April 1, 2020 and is initially limited to three years. The scientific focus of the group includes optimization, inverse problems, machine learning, and mathematical imaging. Besides teaching and research, the position includes work in projects or preparation of projects.

If you

  • have a degree (Masters or Diploma) in mathematics possibly computer science) above average,
  • focus on  optimization and/or numerical mathematics and applications, e.g. imaging or machine learning
  • have programming skills in MATLAB, Julia and/or Python,
  • have good knowledge of German and/or English,
  • have the capacity for teamwork and independent work,

we look forward to your application. If you even have experience with the training of neural networks or even graph networks, it’s even better.

Equally qualified severely challenged persons will be given preference. The TU Braunschweig especially encourages women to apply for the position. Please send your application including CV, copies of certificates and letters of recommendation (if any) in electronic form via e-mail to Dirk Lorenz, d.lorenz@tu-braunschweig.de.
