Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral research associate post to work on projects in Mathematical Fluid Dynamics under the direction of László Székelyhidi. The successful applicant will take up the post starting 1. October 2013 at the University of Leipzig. The main line of research is the study of weak solutions of inviscid fluid models, primarily the incompressible Euler equations and applications of convex integration. The position is funded by the ERC Starting Grant “h-Principle in Fluid Dynamics” and is extendable for a third year.
The successful candidate will be expected to have a PhD awarded or submitted, in mathematics or a related discipline, a good publication record judged by the stage of his/her career, expertise in analysis and a research record in some aspect of nonlinear analysis applied to problems in fluid mechanics or the calculus of variations.
The candidate should send an application by email, containing a CV, a list of publications, and arrange for two letters of reference to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no deadline, however the selection will start on 2. April 2013 and continue until the position is filled.
