Turbulence is ubiquitous in nature and technology. Yet, developing theories of turbulence, which ultimately all modeling applications rely on, remains an outstanding scientific challenge. The goal of the EU-funded project UniTED is to combine theory and new computational approaches to tackle this long-standing problem and enhance our fundamental understanding of highly turbulent flows.
We are looking for excellent, highly motivated early-career researchers to join our research team. The ideal candidate should have a master’s degree in physics with a background in complex systems, fluid dynamics and statistical physics. Programming skills are a requirement. Experience in the numerical simulation of nonlinear partial differential equations is welcome. Fluency in English is expected.
We offer excellent working conditions in a newly established international team at the beautiful campus of the University of Bayreuth. The earliest starting date is 5/2022. The salary and working hours are in accordance with the funding guidelines of the University of Bayreuth for early-career scientists. The salary is based on the public salary scale TV-L E13. The PhD position (66,67%) is limited to three years. A structured PhD program is offered in the graduate school of the University of Bayreuth. The postdoc position (100%) is initially limited to two years and subject to possible extension.
The University of Bayreuth values the diversity of its employees and is explicitly committed to the goal of gender equality. Women are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants with children are very welcome. The University of Bayreuth is a member of the Best Practice Network “Familie in der Hochschule e.V.”, and has successfully participated in the HRK audit “Internationalization of the University”. Persons with severe disabilities will be given preferential consideration if equally qualified.
Please apply online via the applicant portal Uni Bayreuth selecting “UniTED” from the drop-down menu. Your application should contain a cover letter (describing your past and current research interests), your CV, your publication list as well as contact information of two references.
The documents will be deleted after the position has been filled in accordance with data protection requirements.
For further information please contact Prof. Dr. Michael Wilczek (email@example.com).
