The position is associated with the research project
“Mathematical framework for MR Poroelastography”
within the Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+.
The purpose of the position is to carry out research in the field of numerical methods for mathematical image processing.
Specifically, the project focuses on the development, analysis, and implementation of algo-rithms to support the identification of biological tissue parameters using medical imaging.
The project is a collaboration between two WIAS research groups (“Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computing” – PI Alfonso Caiazzo and “Stochastic Algorithms and Nonparametric Statistics” – PI Karsten Tabelow) and the Research group “Elastography” at the Charité (PI Prof. Dr. I. Sack).

Prerequisite is a master diploma or doctorate degree in applied mathematics, as well as expe-rience in at least one of the following areas: discretization of PDEs, scientific computing, image processing, data assimilation methods. Programming skills and expertise in implementation of numerical methods are beneficial.
The successful candidate will work in an interdisciplinary environment, and a close interaction with experimentalists is expected.
Please direct your queries to Dr. A. Caiazzo (Alfonso.Caiazzo@wias-berlin.de) or Dr. Karsten Tabelow (Karsten.Tabelow@wias-berlin.de).

The position is remunerated according to TVöD and is limited until December 31st, 2021.
