Research Staff


At the University of Göttingen -Public Law Foundation-, SFB 1456 - Mathematics of Experiment, there is a position as

PhD student (all genders welcome)

Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L/75%,

to be filled. Starting date is as soon as possible. The position is limited for 3 years.

The PhD student will work on the project B06 “Compensating motion and model inexactness in nano-CT and local tomography” in the research group of Anne Wald and will be co-supervised by Tim Salditt. The focus of the project is the fast (iterative) reconstruction of incomplete nano-CT data for undersampled moving objects using inexact physical models. Various possibilities to approach the estimation of the respective modelling inexactness can be addressed, ranging from analytical and statistical methods to data-driven techniques.

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 is addressed in 17 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/en/628179.html. More information on the individual projects can be found at https://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/628437.html.

Your profile:

  • You hold an MSc degree (or equivalent) in mathematics or a related field.
  • You have a background in inverse problems, imaging or optimization.
  • You are interested to work in an interdisciplinary team with an experimental lab and ideally have some background knowledge of physics.
  • You are fully proficient in written and spoken English.

Questions are answered by Jun.-Prof. Anne Wald (a.wald@math.uni-goettingen.de).

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 upload your application in one pdf file including the usual documents until August 31, 2022.

At the University of Göttingen -Public Law Foundation-, SFB 1456 - Mathematics of Experiment, there is a position as

PhD student (all genders welcome) for Project C01

Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L/75%,

to be filled. The position should be filled as soon as possible (September 01, 2022). The position is limited for 3 years.

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.
