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
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:
