The Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ is a cross-institutional and crossdisciplinary
Cluster of Excellence in which scientists want to research and further develop
new approaches in application-oriented mathematics. The focus is on mathematical
foundations for the use of ever larger amounts of data in the life and materials sciences,
energy and network research or the humanities and social sciences. The aim is to promote
not only scientific progress but also technological innovation and a comprehensive
understanding of social processes. MATH+ will fund six positions for heads of independent
junior research groups in application-driven basic mathematical research, in order to
strengthen support for excellent young researchers who already have some years of
postdoc experience, and to give them a head start in building their own research profile and
group within the supportive environment of a large Cluster of Excellence.
The offered position is one of the leading positions of a MATH+ junior research group at the
FU Berlin. We are looking for a candidate with extensive experience and independent
research results in the field of "Mathematics for Complex Processes", especially in the field
of modelling, simulation and analysis of dynamical systems with many interacting entities
and applications in the humanities, social sciences or data sciences. In these fields, he or
she can demonstrate internationally visible theoretical research results and applications to
real complex systems and build bridges to possible fields of application. He or she has
experience in the scientific orientation, acquisition and/or implementation of third-party
Dissertation in Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science or related disciplines.
Experience in theory or method development in at least one of the following areas: Agentbased
models, network dynamics, mean field games, neural networks
Additional knowledge from the following areas is advantageous: computer simulations, data
analysis (techniques from machine learning, which make the handling of complex data sets
Experience and good programming skills in Scientific Computing (Matlab, Python)
Excellent written and spoken English
