The "Scientific Computing" group at the Institute for Mathematics (IfM) is inviting applications for a position as

Doctoral or Postdoctoral Researcher (m/f)
TV-L E13 (100 %)

for a duration of three years. The intended start of the project is February 1, 2017.
The position is part of the research group "2337 - Denitrification in Agricultural Soils: Integrated control and Modelling at various scales (DASIM)" funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
The research group will contribute to a better understanding of denitrification (the microbial conversion of nitrate to nitrous oxide or molecular nitrogen) and a better quantification of the emission of green house gases by denitrification. Central aim of the project in Clausthal is the development of a hierarchy of models, which allow a high-resolution simulation of processes at the pore scale (microbial conversion and growth) and at the sample-/profile scale (transport of substrate, oxygen and products) building on existing codes. The models will be applied to measurement data of our project partners at the universities of Gießen, Göttingen and Hanover, the Thünen- Institute and the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ in Halle.
We expect strong interest in modelling and numerical simulation of processes in porous media. Applicants should hold a master degree in mathematics, natural sciences or engineering related to modelling and simulation. A solid experience in scientific programming with C++ and a good basic knowledge of the numeric of partial differential equations is required. We expect the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team and the readiness to contribute to teaching.
As an equal opportunity employer, Clausthal University of technology actively encourages applications from women. We welcome applications from qualified candidates of all nationalities. Preference will be given to disabled applicants with equal qualifications.
For questions regarding the research project please contact the head of the scientific computing group Prof. Dr. Olaf Ippisch (olaf.ippisch@tu-clausthal.de). Interested candidates should send their certificates, their CV describing background, training and research interests and a statement regarding their previous experience with modelling and simulation and their programming skills in C++ as a single PDF (max. 10 MB) with the keyword "DASIM" to Ina Küster (ina.kuester@tu-clausthal.de) until December 22, 2016.
