PhD position within the CRC 1456 (Mathematics of Experiment)

At the University of Göttingen -Public Law Foundation-, SFB 1456 – Mathematics of Experiment, there is a position as PhD student (13 TV-L/75%) to be filled. The PhD student will work on the project B06 “Compensating motion and model inexactness in nano-CT and local tomography” in the research group of Anne Wald and will be co-supervised by Tim Salditt. The focus of the project is the fast (iterative) reconstruction of incomplete nano-CT data for undersampled moving objects using inexact physical models. Various possibilities to approach the estimation of the respective modelling inexactness can be addressed, ranging from analytical and statistical methods to data-driven techniques.
Deadline for application: August 31, 2022
Application at: https://obp.uni-goettingen.de/en-us/OBF/Index/72702
Starting date: as soon as possible.
Limited for 3 years.
About us:
The aim of CRC 1456 is to develop mathematical data analysis for the natural sciences, i.e., mathematical theory and tools to efficiently extract maximal quantitative information from experimental data. This challenge is addressed in 17 projects which are all lead jointly by a mathematician and an experimental scientist. For more information we refer to the web page https://www.uni-goettingen.de/crc1456.
• MSc degree (or equivalent) in mathematics or a related field.
• Background in inverse problems, imaging or optimization.
• Interested to work in an interdisciplinary team with an experimental lab and ideally have some background knowledge of physics.
• Fully proficient in written and spoken English.
Questions are answered by Jun.-Prof. Anne Wald (a.wald@math.uni-goettingen.de).
