PhD Student Position (f/m) in Biomedical Engineering/Applied Mathematics

Job description

We seek a PhD candidate for CRC 1173 „Wave Phenomena: Analysis and Numerics“ for project B7 „Dynamics of electro-cardiac depolarization waves“. In this project the spread of depolarization waves in the heart is investigated both from a mathematical point of view and from a biomedical engineering / cardiology point of view. Our goal is to develop, numerically realize and mathematically analyse a fully coupled model for the cardiac electromechanical system and to describe the dynamics of the main types of depolarization waves.

The PhD student will work on her/his research project. As a member of the integrated Research Training Group (iRTG) she/he benefits from a variety of qualification programs including for example advanced and tailor-made courses on the topics of the CRC. The PhD student will attend conferences, workshops and summer schools. Teaching possibilities can be offered, too.

Qualification

Candidates hold a Master degree (or equivalent) in Mathematics / Physics / Engineering and have a strong background in numerical methods for differential equations and basic knowledge in biomedical engineering and computational modelling. They are open minded, active and have a good command of English language.

The position is limited for three years, starting date is as soon as possible. The remuneration occurs on the basis of the wage agreement of the civil service in TV-L E13, 75%.

Applications (CV, cover letter, certificates, names of two referees) should be sent until November 17th, 2017 in a single PDF file by email to Tanja Hagedorn.

For the Institute for Analysis at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), we announce as soon as possible

2 Postdoctoral Positions (f/m)

in Mathematics and Mathematics/Mathematical Physics.

Job description

We seek two postdoctoral researchers for CRC 1173 »Wave Phenomena: Analysis and Numerics« for projects A6 »Time-periodic solutions for nonlinear Maxwell equations« and B4 »Effective characterization of optical metamaterials beyond a local response«.

Qualification

Candidates hold a doctoral (PhD) degree in Mathematics for A6 and in Mathematics or Mathematical Physics for B4. They have a strong background in partial differential equations, are open minded, active and have good English language skills.

The position is limited for two years. The remuneration occurs on the basis of the wage agreement of the civil service in TV-L E13.

KIT is pursuing a gender equality policy and encourages women to apply. Furthermore, in case of equal qualification preference is given to applicants with disabilities.

Applications indicating the desired project (CV, cover letter, certificates, the names of two referees) should be sent until September 10th, 2017 in a single PDF file by email to Christian Knieling.
