RWTH Aachen - Chair for Computational Analysis of Technical Systems

Research aim at our institute is to bridge the gap between simulation-based and experimental investigations for a variety of engineering problems. Focus is the development and assessment of both physical models and numerical methods. In most cases, the numerical methods are connected to complex applications. A selection of important research fields are stabilized finite element methods for fluids, numerical shape optimization and non-Newtonian material models. Please refer to for further information. 

Research Assistant/Associate

Work­ing field:

Simu­la­tion tech­ni­ques have become an important instru­ment for the deve­lop­ment, design and qua­lity assurance of engi­nee­ring com­po­n­ents. Since its foun­da­tion in 2004, our insti­tute con­ducts active rese­arch at the inter­face bet­ween mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring and app­lied mathe­ma­tics. Our main focus is the deve­lop­ment and imple­men­ta­tion of nume­ri­cal methods. Cur­rently, we are sear­ching for a new doc­to­ral can­di­date in the area of fun­da­men­tal nume­ri­cal methods for flow simu­la­tion of com­plex fluids, e.g., col­lo­ids, blood, or poly­mers. The posi­tion is part of the coope­ra­tion with the Uni­ver­sity of Texas at Aus­tin in the frame­work of the Inter­na­tio­nal Rese­arch Trai­ning Group IGK 2379 "Modern Inverse Pro­blems", and is fun­ded by the Ger­man Rese­arch Foun­da­tion DFG.


Requi­re­ment for this posi­tion is a diploma or mas­ter’s degree in CES, engi­nee­ring, app­lied mathe­ma­tics, phy­sics or a simi­lar sub­ject with a supe­rior aca­de­mic record. Prac­tical pro­gramming expe­ri­ence in For­tran, C or C++ as well as with par­al­le­liza­t­ion (MPI or OpenMP) are of advan­tage. Fami­li­a­rity with UNIX ope­ra­ting sys­tem would be ideal. We expect you to cont­ri­bute to gene­ral tasks at the insti­tute, such as teaching and advi­sing mas­ter or pro­ject the­ses.

What we of­fer:

The posi­tion is for 3 years and is to be fil­led as soon as pos­si­ble. This is a full-time posi­tion. It is also avail­able as part-time employ­ment per request.

The suc­cess­ful can­di­date has the oppor­tu­nity to pur­sue a doc­to­ral degree.

The salary cor­re­sponds to level EG 13 TV-L.

RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity is cer­ti­fied as a "Family-Fri­endly Uni­ver­sity". We par­ti­cu­larly wel­come and encou­rage app­li­ca­ti­ons from women, disa­b­led per­sons and eth­nic mino­rity groups, reco­gni­zing they are under­re­pre­sen­ted across RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity. The prin­ci­ples of fair and open com­pe­ti­tion apply and appoint­ments will be made on merit.
