The Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ sets out to advance mathematics itself and its interdisciplinary power with the aim of achieving progress on grand challenges in a wide variety of application fields. MATH+ will start with nine major units for project-oriented research: four Application Areas and five Emerging Fields. In both, mathematicians from a wide range of different disciplines collaborate – with each other and with leading researchers from diverse application fields as well as representatives from industry. These Research Units are complemented by Transfer Units designed for translational research. For further details please visit www.mathplus.de.
Within the Cluster of Excellence MATH+, project EF4-4 “Diffusion in dynamically crowded cells: stochastic models from spatiotemporal motion data” is looking for a research assistant. The project is devoted to the stochastic modelling and the statistical analysis of spatiotemporal transport, based on data from fluorescence experiments and molecular simulations. Main objectives are the inference of effective stochastic models and the quantification of memory effects, using state-of-the art techniques from multiscale modelling, complex analysis, and data assimilation. We offer a vivid research environment that facilitates national and international research collaborations and that provides excellent opportunities for the candidate’s academic development. Within the above-mentioned research project EF4-4, the pursuit of a doctoral degree is possible.
MSc. or equivalent in mathematics, physics, or related fields.
We are searching for a talented and motivated scientist with a solid background in applied mathematics or theoretical physics and proven expertise in at least one of the following subjects: stochastic differential equations, multiscale analysis, anomalous transport, diffusion, or molecular dynamics. Relevant experience in the implementation and testing of numerical algorithms is expected.
