Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter*innen


The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1456 Mathematics of Experiment: The challenge of indirect measurements in the natural sciences at the Georg-August-University Göttingen has started on January 1, 2021 and offers the position of a

Research Group Leader (f/m/d).

The research group will be embedded into an interdisciplinary environment of researchers from mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, and biology. It will be equipped with one PhD position (75% TV-L E13) for three years. Moreover, there is the opportunity to hire student assistants. The position should be filled as soon as possible and ends on 31.12.2024. The salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale (E14 TV-L). The position is offered with 100 % of the regular working hours.
About us:
The aim of CRC 1456 is to develop mathematical data analysis for the natural sciences, i.e. mathematical theory and tools to efficiently extract maximal quantitative information from experimental data. This challenge will be addressed in 16 projects which are all lead jointly by a mathematician and an experimental scientist. For more information we refer to the web page https://www.uni-goettingen.de/crc1456.

Your profile:
o You hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) in mathematics or a related discipline such as computer science or a natural science related to the CRC.
o You have a track record of excellent research, ideally related to data modelling and analysis in the natural sciences.
o You are able to lead a small team of PhD and Master students. o You intend to collaborate with other groups in the CRC and contribute to its main goals.
o You are fully proficient in written and spoken English.

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 under-represented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and support 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.

Your application including also a curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation describing your research plan and how you intend to collaborate with the CRC, copies of your certificates and contact information of at least two references should be submitted to the to the online application platform https://lotus2.gwdg.de/uni/uzdv/perso/knr_100846.nsf by June 30, 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact Eva Hetzel via e-mail (eva.hetzel@math.uni-goettingen.de) or
Thorsten Hohage (hohage@math.uni-goettingen.de).

The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1456 Mathematics of Experiment: The challenge of indirect measurements in the natural sciences at the Georg-August-University Göttingen has started on January 1, 2021 and offers the position of a

PhD student (f/m/d).

The PhD student will work on the project C01 “Density matrix reconstructions in ultrafast free electron optics” in the research group of Thorsten Hohage and will be co-supervised by Claus Ropers. This project investigates the mathematical foundations of new experimental technique and will exploit its potential towards the nanoscale study of electron-matter interactions. This research project will either focus on the inverse problem to reconstruct electron density matrices from observed energy spectra or on the numerical and analytical study of plasmonic resonances and inference on such resonances from experimental data.

The position should be filled as soon as possible (July 01, 2021). The salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale (E13 TV-L) for three years. The position is offered with 75% of the regular working hours.

The position should be filled until May 31, 2021. The salary is in accordance with the German public service salary scale (E13 TV-L). The position is offered with 100 % of the regular working hours.
