The Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) is an institute of the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V. (FVB). The FVB comprises seven non-university research institutes in Berlin which are funded by the federal and state governments. The research institutes are members of the Leibniz Association.
WIAS invites applications for a
PhD student position (f/m/d)
in the Research Group
“Thermodynamic Modeling and Analysis of Phase Transitions”
(Head: Dr. B. Wagner, Supervisor: Dr. M. Landstorfer) starting at April 1st, 2021.
The position is tied to the MATH+ Cluster of excellence project AA4-8:
Recovery of battery ageing dynamics with multiple timescales.
The project aims at developing a data-driven methodology to recover the dynamics of battery ageing on the basis of a mathematical model in combination with numerical simulations and experimental data. The research plan covers three main aspects, (i) modeling of a porous battery cell with degradation effects, (ii) homogenization of the time periodic PDE system and (iii) determination of the parameter evolution as inverse problem with invertible neuronal networks.
We are looking for candidates with a master’s degree and a strong background in applied mathematics, theoretical chemistry, theoretical physics or electrical engineering. Prior knowledge in continuum mechanics, thermodynamics, homogenization theory, software development, or machine learning are beneficial.
Please direct scientific queries to Dr. M. Landstorfer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The appointment is for 36 months until 31.03.2024. The reduced work schedule is 29,25 hours per week, and the salary is according to the German TVoeD scale.
The Weierstrass Institute is an equal opportunity employer. We explicitly encourage female researchers to apply for the offered position. Among equally qualified applicants, disabled candidates will be given preference.
Please upload complete application documents including a cover letter, curriculum vitae and photocopies of relevant certificates as soon as possible and no later than 14.02.2021 via our online job-application facility using the button “Apply online”.
We are looking forward to your application!
