Doctoral positions (f/m) in the field of data assimilation
University of Potsdam
The DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center SFB 1294 “Data Assimilation – The Seamless Integration of
Data and Models”, hosted at the University of Potsdam jointly with its partner Institutions HU Berlin, TU Berlin,
WIAS Berlin and GFZ Potsdam, invites applications for
14 doctoral 4-year positions
in the field of data assimilation (including statistical inverse problems, dynamical systems, applied and computational
mathematics, and machine learning) and its application to biophysics, neurosciences and geosciences.
The approved first funding period is 01.07.2017 to 30.06.2021. The maximum possible funding period of collaborative research centres is 12 years.
Our vision. The assimilation of time-dependent data sets into complex evolution models lead to unique mathematical and computational challenges,
which provide the central theme of SFB 1294. Data assimilation is a newly emerging field which lies at the confluence of several established
research areas in mathematics and statistics on the one hand and application areas such as geosciences on the other. Our vision is to establish
a rigorous mathematical underpinning of data assimilation, to develop principled computational methodologies, and to apply these methodologies
to emerging application fields in the geosciences, neurosciences and biophysics.
SFB 1294 provides a fantastic research infrastructure including a large interdisciplinary network of researchers, its own graduate school, and
funding opportunities for conference visits, summer schools, hosting international experts etc. SFB 1294 strives to increase the proportion of
women in research. People with an immigration background are specifically encouraged to apply.
