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

Postdoc Position (all genders welcome)
in Applied Mathematics

starting as soon as possible for a period of 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 RTG 2088 develops new mathematical concepts for the efficient reconstruction and classification of relevant structural information in data sets. In doing so, we benefit from an interplay between approaches in statistics, optimization and inverse problems. We offer an interdisciplinary qualification program that equips our graduate students with a broad set of skills for analyzing data – also beyond the scientific scope of our RTG.

We are looking for a postdoc who has strong expertise related to at least one of these fields: inverse problems, optimization, mathematical statistics, data analysis, computational harmonic analysis or mathematical signal and image processing. The candidate shows considerable breadth in their previous research and a willingness to explore new topics.

Your profile:
• 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 an interdisciplinary team,
• good programming skills are beneficial.

How to apply:
Your application includes

• a motivation letter,
• a curriculum vitae,
• your degree certificates.
