The CRC is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Its goal is to analytically understand, numerically simulate, and eventually manipulate wave propagation under realistic scenarios by intertwining analysis and numerics. See www.waves.kit.edu for a list of participating scientists and project descriptions.

Job description

With this position the CRC promotes outstanding young scientists on their path towards a scientific career. The Junior Research Group Leader will independently develop her/his own research projects. We expect him/her to contribute as a principal investigator to the renewal proposal of the CRC into its second funding period (7/2019-6/2023). The successful candidate can apply for a KIT Associate Fellowship which allows to supervise doctoral researchers.
