(Ref. FOR 2402)


several research positions (m/f/d)

Within the framework FOR 2402 of the German Research Council “Rough Paths, Stochastic Partial Differential Equations and Related Topics” there are several positions to fill. The framework includes these projects:

P1:    SPDEs - a rough path perspective, P. K. Friz (TU/WIAS), M. Hofmanova (U Bielefeld), W. Stannat (TU),

P2:    Foundations of regularity structures, P. K. Friz (TU/WIAS), S. Paycha (Potsdam), N. Perkowski (HU),

P3:    Numerical analysis of rough PDEs, C. Bayer (WIAS), R. Kruse (TU), J. Schoenmakers (WIAS)

P4:    Rough paths and random dynamical systems, P. Imkeller (HU), S. Riedel (TU), M. Scheutzow (TU)

P5:    Singular SPDEs - approximation and statistical properties, J. D. Deuschel (TU), W. König (TU/WIAS), N. Perkowski (HU),

Applications are invited for several postdoctoral research fellow positions to work within our research unit, typically directed by the PIs of the respective project teams P1-P5.

Background: Applicants have a PhD degree in mathematics, although exceptional finishing PhD students will also be considered. Experience in one or several of the areas: stochastic analysis (in particular rough paths, stochastic partial differential equations), harmonic analysis, quantum field theory, renormalisation theory, partial differential equations (in particular evolution equations, variational methods), numerical analysis (in particular of stochastic (partial) differential equations, regression methods, Monte Carlo methods).Indicate on your cover letter which project position(s) you are interested in.

Inquiries: Interested candidates are encouraged to contact any of the coordinators (Peter Friz <>, Nicolas Perkowski <>, Wilhelm Stannat <>) before applying. For more information see also:

This research unit strives to increase the proportion of women in research and therefore strongly encourages qualified female researchers to apply. Among equally qualified applicants, disabled candidates will be given preference.

Location: Berlin and Berlin wider area (TU, HU, WIAS or U Potsdam).

Position: pure research Postdoc (if interested in PhD positions, please see Berlin-Potsdam Graduate School in Stochastic Analysis or Berlin Mathematical School).

Duration: up to three years depending on the project starting in 2019.

Salary:  TV-L/TVöD, the standard German postdoc salary 

Please note that successful candidates will have to undergo some formal application procedure at the respective institutions in due course.

Please upload complete application documents (cover letter, CV, research statement, photocopies of certificates, list of publications, and possibly links to your selected relevant works) as soon as possible and no later than May 24th, 2019 via our online job-application facility ( using the button “Apply online”.

We are looking forward to your application!

Please arrange for two reference letters to be sent to the same email by the deadline.
