The international Helmholtz graduate school in Energy and Climate research HITEC announces 7 Ph.D. fellowships, specifically in materials science, atmospheric physics and chemistry, plasma physics, thermal energy conversion, photovoltaics, modelling and numerical simulations and economics. For their application candidates have the choice between 22 HITEC Ph.D. projects and 6 research fields: for details of projects and research fields as well as the application procedure check the Call for Applications and Guideline for Applicants (www.fz-juelich.de/hitec/EN/_node.html).
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Jyväskylä, will hire 2-4 postdoctoral researchers. We invite prospective candidates to apply for these positions, which will involve research in one or more of the following areas:
Prospective postdoctoral researchers are expected to have a PhD degree or equivalent. Persons graduating in the near future are also encouraged to apply. See: https://www.jyu.fi/maths/tutkimus/call2014
The Analysis group is one of the key research groups at the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics. Internationally, the group has a long-standing tradition of excellence in the areas of functional analysis, partial differential equations, and stochastic analysis.
Applications are invited for a full-time, tenure track position in the area of Analysis. The successful candidate will have demonstrated excellence in research and preferably have some experience in teaching. His/her responsibilities include:
Applications are invited for a post of Research Specialist in statistics at the Science Institute of the University of Iceland. The main duties of the successful applicant will be to conduct independent research in any branch of statistics, applied or theoretical. However, all statisticians at the University of Iceland participate in the general statistical advice for faculty and PhD students. Although the position has no teaching duties, the future employee may teach some statistics courses but this must remain a minor part of the duties.
Applications are invited for two posts of Research Specialist in the mathematics division of the Science Institute of the University of Iceland. The appointees is expected to conduct research in mathematics or mathematical physics. Teaching is not a mandatory part of the post. The appointee participation in teaching is a matter of agreement and teaching will only be a small part of the workload. The appointment is temporary for two years from the 1st of August 2014, or otherwise according to agreement, with a possibility of an extension of one year.
We are advertising a two-year position at the Mathematics Institute at the University of Heidelberg (http://www.mathi.uni-heidelberg.de/) starting September 2014 in the research group of Prof. Dr. Anna Wienhard http://www.mathi.uni-heidelberg.de/~diffgeo/)
The postdoctoral researcher will have access to funding for travel, conferences and visitors. He/She will have access to resources of the Mathematics Center Heidelberg (MATCH - see http://www.match.uni-heidelberg.de/) and to resources of the GEAR Network (GEAR - see http://gear.math.illinois.edu/).
