Job Offers for Academic Positions at Freie Universität Berlin

Fachbereich Mathematik und Informatik 
Institut für Mathematik 
CRC 1114: Young Investigators program

2 positions
Postdoc
limited to 2 years
Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU
reference code: SFB 1114-Z01-YIP

CRC 1114 aims at methodological developments for the modelling and computational simulation of complex processes involving many (more than two) interacting scales, driven by real-life applications from the bio-, geo-, and material sciences. In its individual projects, mathematicians cooperate with colleagues from the natural sciences to advance both their modelling capabilities and their insight into concrete multiscale phenomena.

Job description:

The CRC's field is highly dynamic and competitive so that resources allowing to react to promising new ideas and developments within or outside of the CRC 1114 are needed. To this end, the CRC 1114 offers two post-doc positions as young investigators start-up fund. Applications from young researchers at the early post-doc level will be accepted from within or outside of the program. Successful applicants will receive a two-year post-doc position for exploring the potential of the respective new ideas, starting initial research, and preparing a grant application. Such applications may be addressed to the DFG or other funding agencies, or they may amount to new project proposals within the CRC program. The projects will be embedded in the CRC and benefit from its supporting infrastructure and scientific program. In the next funding period the positions can be extended to a third year given positive evaluation of a report and a follow-up application.

Requirements:

PhD in Mathematics or PhD in a field of the Natural Sciences or Engineering with very strong mathematical background.

Desirable:

Fundamental knowledge in at least one of the CRC's field and first experiences on application for third party funding are appreciated.

  • The application should include a letter of motivation up to 4 pages on the field of interest, respective new ideas or planned initial research pointing out the state of research
  • the degree of complementarity to the portfolio of already existing projects within the CRC 1114
  • the coherence of the young investigator's project with the CRC 1114's mission
  • a list of publications (selection)

All applications quoting the reference code should be addressed no later than April 25th, 2016to

Research Assistant (Praedoc)
1/2-part-time-job
limited until 3,5 years
Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU
reference code: Klinger 001

In the Klinger Lab, we focus on the development of nano-structured polymeric materials and colloids with dynamic and responsive properties. Our research is inspired by nature's outstanding ability to create very specific (macroscopic) functions through molecular and structural design. To approach similar levels of control in synthetic materials, we work on multiple length scales: Starting from the rational design of molecular units, we develop well-defined polymeric architectures and control their self-assembly into ordered superstructures. Additionally, we focus on the use of confinements to create additional elements of hierarchy. The synergy between chemical and structural functionality allows the development of polymeric nanoparticles and -materials for a broad variety of applications.

Job Description:

  • Working on a research project for a PhD thesis/doctoral dissertation;
  • participation in research projects regarding the synthesis and characterization of polymeric nanoparticles: Controlling (macroscopic) functionality by tuning internal morphology and overall shape;
  • participation in teaching (fluent German language skills required).
  • From molecules to materials - the candidate should actively participate in research projects in the Klinger Lab. Especially, the development of polymeric nanoparticles with well-defined shapes and internal morphologies should be addressed. For this, concepts from synthetic macromolecular chemistry should be combined with methods from the fields of colloidal chemistry and self-assembly. This includes synthesis and characterization of (macro-) molecular building blocks, their assembly into nanoparticles, characterization of the colloidal materials, and investigations on the resulting macroscopic functionality.

Requirements:

Completed university degree (Master, Diploma, Staatsexamen) in chemistry, materials science, pharmacy or closely related fields.

Desirable:

  • Very good to excellent university degree;
  • ability to independently work on a research project;
  • experience in conducting goal orientated research and structuring research tasks;
  • excellent ability to work in a team and enthusiasm for cooperative work;
  • sound knowledge and practical expertise in organic chemistry / polymer chemistry / colloidal chemistry;
  • teaching experience in organic chemistry and/or pharmaceutical chemistry;
  • excellent English language skills and fluent German language skills.
  • You are highly interested in multidisciplinary research and are motivated to independently engage with complex topics.
  • Additionally, you are proactive and are able to solve problems together with co-workers in a team.
  • You are able to investigate ideas and hypotheses through practical experiments, thereby advancing research projects.
  • Furthermore, you enjoy presenting your work and are able to promote this with fluent English language skills in a professional international environment.
  • If these points match your profile, we would be happy to hearing from you.

reference code: Rillig-bipolabs

The Berlin-Brandenburg Institute of Advanced Biodiversity Research (BBIB, www.bbib.org) with its member institutions has formed a consortium to implement a major new interdisciplinary research initiative, the "Bridging in Biodiversity Science" (http://www.bbib.org/bridging-in-biodiversity-science.html) project funded by the Federal Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF). Within the initiative, Biodiversity Policy Labs (BiPoLabs) will be established to bridge between science, policy and society. The BiPoLabs are strongly connected to citizen science activities and the experimental platform ScapeLabs within the research initiative.

Job description:

  • Establishing transdisciplinary science-policy-society research using the instrument of the Biodiversity Policy Research Laboratories
  • Assessment of the impact of different governance frameworks, policies and land use practices on biodiversity in specific landscapes
  • Coordination of transdisciplinary workshops for the development of a synthesis across biological, social and political sciences to provide evidence-based feedback for conservation policy and practice development
  • Science-policy-society networking

Requirements:

  • Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in a suitable subject

Desirable:

  • Strong expertise in science-society bridging research
  • Knowledge of biodiversity conservation and conservation policies
  • Background in data analysis and synthesis
  • Excellent communication skills
