Postdoctoral Position in Analysis, Calculus of Variations and PDE

The Research Group ``Analysis and PDEs'' at the University of Heidelberg invites applications for a
postdoctoral position within the DFG Priority Program 2256 for a duration of three years. The position
comes with a salary in the German pay scale group TV-L E13 and is without any teaching duties.
The postdoctoral position is within the DFG Project RU 2049/1-1 in the group of Professor Angkana
Rüland. The project focuses on the analysis of ``wild microstructures'' in shape-memory alloys, their
rigidity and flexibility properties. The successful candidate will carry out research on microstructures in
shape-memory materials as outlined in the DFG project. The incumbent will particularly work on the
analysis of scaling laws for elastic and surface energies describing relevant phase transformations in
martensitic materials.

Applicants should hold a PhD in mathematics with some background in
- the calculus of variations,
- and/or the analysis of PDEs.
The starting date is flexible, ideally in the fall of 2020.

Please send your application documents (including a CV, a list of publications, a transcript of your PhD
certificate, a research statement, and the names and contact data of two referees willing to write a let-
ter of recommendation) to

Angkana.Rueland with the subject ``postdoc SPP''

by August 16th, 2020 (we will however consider applications until the position is filled).

Preference will be given to disabled applicants with equal qualifications.
