Freie Universität Berlin - Cluster of Excellence MATH +
limited to 31.12.2021
Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU
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.
The position is part of the research project EF4-9 "Multilevel methods for agent-based epidemic policy design" in MATH+. The project shall develop concepts and methods for mathematical optimization of complex agent-based models in support of epidemic policy design. The successful candidate will contribute to this challenging research topic by establishing derivative concepts for agent-based models, enabling efficient gradient based optimization, or by developing heterogeneous multilevel optimization methods employing model hierarchies from ordinary differential equations up to stochastic agent-based models.
Master of Science Degree (or equivalent) in Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science or related disciplines.
Advanced experience in theory and/or method development in one or more of the following fields: optimization, numerical analysis, agent-based modeling, network dynamics
Additional knowledge from the following fields is advantageous: stochastics, epidemic modelling, computer simulations, data analysis (techniques from machine-learning that permit to handle complex data-sets) • Advanced programming skills in scientific computing (e.g. Matlab, Python)
All applications (including a short cover letter outlining your background, a detailed CV including possibly some references, and all relevant certificates) quoting the reference code should be directed no later than November 30th, 2020 preferably electronically in one PDF-file to: Frau Bettina Junkes: firstname.lastname@example.org or postal to
