WWTF - Vienna Research Groups for Young Investigators 2017: Numerics of Partial Differential Equations
Numerics of Partial Differential Equations studies numerical methods for computing approximate solutions to problems that are mathematically described by partial differential equations. The research of the group mainly focuses on the design, the analysis, and the implementation of standard and non standard finite element methods (discontinuous Galerkin, virtual element methods, finite elements with operator-adapted basis functions), with applications in acoustics, electromagnetism, and elasticity.
Applications are being invited for outstanding early-career scientists (2-8 years post PhD), interested in building up their first independent research group in the field of "Mathematics" at the University of Vienna.
The aim of this announcement is to source exceptional candidates, who, once selected, will then go on to submit an application together with an experienced scientist at the University of Vienna, to the current call for young investigators by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF): https://www.wwtf.at/upload/VRG17_web.pdf.
In the case of a successful funding decision, the research group will be financed for 6-8 years, with up to 1.6 million EUR being provided by the WWTF, supplemented by an additional contribution from the University itself. After a successful interim evaluation, the University of Vienna will offer the group leader a tenure-track position.
Applicants should have exceptional promise, or a proven record of research achievement, within the field of mathematics. They should also provide strong evidence of their potential to make a significant contribution to substantial state-of-the-art scientific research questions in this particular research field. Female applicants are explicitly encouraged to apply.
Interested PostDoc candidates should get in touch with the scientific contact.
Please send your CV with publication list, list of research projects, teaching activities (evaluations, if available) and supervised PhD students to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 30th April 2017.
