In addition to classical areas of mathematics like geometry, numerical analysis, and partial differential equations, our research explores new interactions between mathematics and the sciences, in particular in the areas of complexity and cognition, discrete random geometry, efficient algorithms and scientific computing, materials science, fluid dynamics, mathematical biology, mathematical and theoretical physics, based on a strong background in analysis or geometry or in other formal disciplines. We provide a scientific environment where you are encouraged to explore new scientific directions and where you will find many partners with whom you can discuss a wide range of scientific ideas.
There are no teaching duties, but the possibility to teach an advanced course in our international graduate school.
We typically offer positions for one, two, or three years.
Applicants should submit a CV, list of publications, transcript of PhD certificate, and a research statement also addressing research projects with names of possible collaborators at MPI MiS and arrange for three letters of recommendation.
