Open Position

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

PostDoc Position

from August 1, 2017-March 31, 2020. 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 will be laid upon the interplay between approaches in statistics, optimization, and inverse problems. Most of the proposed PhD projects arise from signal or image processing applications in biology, medicine or engineering.

We are looking for a postdoc having 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 doctorate in mathematics and 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. Applications from severely disabled persons with equivalent qualifications will be given preference.

Please send your application with the usual documents until June 5, 2017 either per letter mail to Georg-August-University Göttingen, Prof. Gerlind Plonka-Hoch, Lotzestr. 16-18, 37083 Göttingen, Germany or directly per e-mail to Prof. Plonka-Hoch: Electronical applications are preferred.
