Doctoral Position (f/m) field of Data Assimilation
University of Potsdam
The DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center SFB 1294 “Data Assimilation – The Seamless
Integration of Data and Models”, hosted at the University of Potsdam jointly with its partner Institutions
HU Berlin, TU Berlin, WIAS Berlin, GFZ Potsdam and University Mageburg invites applications for
5 doctoral 3.5-year positions
in the field of data assimilation (including statistical inverse problems, dynamical systems, applied and computational mathematics,
and machine learning) and its application to biophysics, neurosciences and geosciences.
The approved first funding period is July 1st, 2017 to June 30th, 2021. The maximum possible funding period of collaborative research centres is 12 years.
Our vision. The assimilation of time-dependent data sets into complex evolution models lead to unique mathematical and computational
challenges, which provide the central theme of SFB 1294. Data assimilation is a newly emerging field, which lies at the confluence of
several established research areas in mathematics and statistics on the one hand and application areas such as geosciences on the other.
Our vision is to establish a rigorous mathematical underpinning of data assimilation, to develop principled computational methodologies,
and to apply these methodologies to emerging application fields in the geosciences, neurosciences and biophysics.
SFB 1294 provides a fantastic research infrastructure including a large interdisciplinary network of researchers, its own graduate
school, and funding opportunities for conference visits, summer schools, hosting international experts, etc. SFB 1294 strives to
increase the proportion of women in research. People with an immigration background are specifically encouraged to apply.
