W2 TT W3 Analysis and Numerics of Partial Differential Equations in Regensburg (Germany)

The Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Regensburg invites applications for a
developing professorship of
Analysis and Numerics of Partial Differential Equations
(grade W2 with tenure-track
leading to professorship for life at grade W3)
for a period of six years with the legal status of temporary civil servant (Beamtenverhältnis auf Zeit),
to be appointed as soon as possible. The tenure-track professorship is supported by the
Federal/Länder program for the promotion of young scientists (tenure-track program). The program
aims to forge transparent paths for young academics so they can plan their progression to
professorships. For this reason, we explicitly encourage applications from young academics who
have only recently achieved their doctorates. We are looking for a highly qualified scientist with an
innovative scientific profile, outstanding initial scientific achievements and extraordinary potential
for their further academic career. Universität Regensburg offers the prospect, upon positive tenure
evaluation, of transferring to a permanent position as W3 grade professor with the legal status civil
servant for life (Beamtenverhältnis auf Lebenszeit). The requirements for the tenure evaluation can
be found at https://go.uni-regensburg.de/tt-satzung.
The research interests of the successful applicant should address current topics in analysis and
numerics of partial differential equations. Research topics include, but are not limited to, theory and
numerics of non-linear partial differential equations, calculus of variations, PDE-constrained
optimisation, stochastic partial differential equations, data driven methods in the context of partial
differential equations.
In particular, cooperation within the Research Training Group RTG 2339 Interfaces, Complex
Structures, and Singular Limits and within the Kepler Research Centre for Mathematics is expected.
In addition, connections with the other research areas of the Faculty of Mathematics or the newly
founded Faculty of Informatics and Data Science are desired.
Applications containing the normal documents (resume, certificates, list of publications with copies
of the most important papers) should be submitted electronically (as a single pdf file)
by 30.09.2021
to the dean of the Faculty of Mathematics (fakultaet.mathematik@mathematik.uni-r.de).
