The Weierstrass-Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS, Leibniz Institute in Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V.) and the Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin (HU) invite applications for the following position to be filled as soon as possible:


Professorship in Applied Mathematics – analytical, statistical and stochastical modelling


The position is at the rank of a German full professorship (W3-S according to the cooperation agreement between WIAS and HUB), and it includes heading a research group at WIAS with a correspondingly reduced teaching load of 2 hours per week at HU.


WIAS is one of the leading European research institutes in applied mathematics and is internationally recognized for combining fundamental research in applied analysis and stochastics with complex real-world applications. Situated in the center of Berlin, it offers a highly dynamic research environment. Researchers at WIAS enjoy unique opportunities for mathematical and multidisciplinary collaborations within Berlin and worldwide.


The successful candidate will have an internationally outstanding research record in a modern field of mathematical modeling and analysis, statistical or stochastic modeling, respectively, involving partial differential equations and dynamical systems. Possible application areas of interest include energy technology, nano- and optoelectronics, biomedicine, or thermodynamics and phase transition.


The research focus of the candidate will be suited to enforce the strategic scientific orientation of WIAS in cooperation with the other research group leaders. The research focus of the candidate will further facilitate cooperation with the mathematics-oriented and related interdisciplinary projects in Berlin.


Experience in successful research grant applications is expected.
