Open PostDoc Position in Applied Mathematics or Computational Engineering

for the

Development of Parallel-Adaptive Open Source Software for Diffusion Dominated Multi Field Processes

Job Description: We aim to develop and improve open source software infrastructure for parallel-adaptive nite element simulations on unstructured, conforming grids with main focus on diffusion dominated time-dependent and -independent multi eld processes. The implementation is based on DUNE and DUNE-FEM. The post is located at the Chair for High Performance Computing at the Institute for Applied Analysis and Numerical Simulation.

Job Requirement: We are looking for a PostDoc in Applied Mathematics or Computational Engineering with an excellent record both in the application of adaptive nite elements (elliptic and parabolic PDEs) and high performance computing. The position requires a sound mathematical understanding of adaptive methods as well as sophisticated programming skills with C++ on parallel platforms. The PostDoc is expected to participate actively in the EXC SimTech Teaching Programmes and Industry Transfer Concepts.

Pay Scale: The position with designated salary bracket TV-L 13 has a limited tenure of two years with a possible extension.

Application: Your application including
* Curriculum Vitae
* names and addresses of two references
* copies of diplomas, grades obtained (including grade scale)
* pdf-files of your thesis and papers that you have (co)authored

should be sent either by mail (pdf-files on a CD ROM) or by email to Prof. Dr. Kunibert G. Siebert (, IANS, Pfaenwaldring 57, 70569 Stuttgart, Germany, to arrive no later than October 20, 2013.
