PhD position in Applied Mathematics: "Space-time methods for the computation and analysis of coherent families"

We are searching for a research assistant for the project „Space-time methods for the computation and analysis of coherent families„, which is situated in the DFG Priority Programme 1881 „Turbulent Superstructures“. The aim of the project is the development and implementation of model- and data-oriented transfer operator methods for the computation of large-scale superstructures in turbulent flows. The project is going to be conducted in the group of Prof. Dr. Christof Schütte at the Freie Universität Berlin, and the applicant will be given the opportunity to obtain his/her PhD.

Job description

It is expected that the successful applicant will
