The University of Potsdam, Faculty of Science, Institute of Mathematics,
invites applications for a tenured
W2 Professorship in Data Assimilation
with an anticipated starting date of Fall 2018. Candidates are expected
to have strong research profile in the field of high-dimensional and
time-dependent inverse problems and to actively contribute to the
Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1294 „Data Assimilation – The
seamless integration of data and models” (www.sfb1294.de). Possible
research foci include optimization algorithms for high-dimensional
parameter and state estimation problems, Bayesian model evaluation and
comparison, uncertainty quantification in the context of data
assimilation, sequential and high-dimensional learning, as well as semi-
and nonparametric inference for stochastic processes. Successful
candidates will have demonstrated the ability to combine theoretical and
algorithmic advances with applications to problems of practical relevance.
The deadline for applications is February 27th, 2018.
for more details on the post and the application procedure.
