Position: PhD and Postdoc positions (m/f/d) available as part of the ERC Consolidator Project UniTED
Institution: Universität Bayreuth
Department: Chair of Theoretical Physics
Location: Bayreuth, Bayern, Germany
Duties: Turbulence is ubiquitous in nature and technology. Yet, developing theories of turbulence, which ultimately all modeling applications rely on, remains an outstanding scientific challenge. The goal of the EU-funded project UniTED is to combine theory and new computational approaches to tackle this long-standing problem and enhance our fundamental understanding of highly turbulent flows
Requirements: We are looking for excellent, highly motivated early-career researchers to join our research team. The ideal candidate should have a degree in physics with a background in complex systems, fluid dynamics and statistical physics. Programming skills as well as experience in the numerical simulation of nonlinear partial differential equations are a requirement. Fluency in English is expected
