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 a 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” ( 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.
