About us:

At the CRC 1456, we develop new mathematical concepts for the efficient reconstruction and classification of relevant structural information in biomolecules. In doing so, we benefit from an interplay between approaches in statistics, geometry and optimization. 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 CRC. For more information we refer to the web page More information on the individual projects can be found at

The position:

You will conduct research in project A01 which deals with statistics on non-Euclidean spaces with applications in ENDOR microscopy. Additionally, you will take part in our study program, which includes special lectures and seminars, our annual SFB workshop, regular meetings with other PhD students as well as with your thesis advisory committee, and a course on good scientific practice.

Your profile:

As a successful candidate, you
