Deadline for application

Doctoral Researcher (f/m/d – 75 %) for the CRC 1173 doctoral thesis project “Numerical analysis of multiscale methods”

The Collaborative Research Center “Wave phenomena – analysis and numerics” (CRC 1173) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, is currently seeking to recruit, as soon as possible, limited to three years, a doctoral researcher (f/m/d – 75%).

Nowadays a lot of new materials are artificially constructed and tailored to exhibit astonishing physical properties. These metamaterials are characterized by fine structures of different material components. Within mathematical models, this leads to partial differential equations with a coexistence of multiple spatial scales. However, standard numerical methods need to resolve all fine scales and thus have a prohibitive computational effort. Numerical multiscale methods in turn decompose the solution into a macroscopic and a fine-scale contribution allowing for an efficient approximation of the macroscopic solution on coarse meshes. In the project “Numerical analysis of multiscale methods (https://www.waves.kit.edu/AP5.php), we develop such schemes and prove a priori estimates for the discretization error. A main objective of this project is to develop and analyze multiscale methods for problems with nonlinearities, random perturbations, or multiscale dynamics.

More details can be found here.

Applicants should have: Excellent Master or an equivalent degree in Mathematics. Strong background in numerical methods for partial differential equations and numerical analysis. Programming skills (in MATLAB, python or C++) are beneficial. We expect good writing and oral communication skills in English along with the ability to work independently within an international team. Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interest, contact information for two referees, and copies of degree certificate(s).

Please apply online via until November 15, 2021. For further information, please contact Dr. Barbara Verfürth, barbara.verfuerth@kit.edu, or Ms Laurette Lauffer, laurette.lauffer@kit.edu.

Doctoral Researcher (f/m/d – 75%) Project B9 “Dynamical low-rank approximation for the simulation of radiation heat waves”

The CRC has been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) since 2015. Its goal is to analytically understand, numerically simulate, and eventually manipulate wave propagation under realistic scenarios by intertwining analysis and numerics. The Project B9 “Dynamical low-rank approximation for the simulation of radiation heat waves aims at applying, adapting, and implementing the dynamical low- rank method for the simulation of radiation heat waves. We combine the dynamical low-rank method with a high-order Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) discretization in space, and either a spectral or collocation method in angle. The ansatz functions are tensorized so that one can interpret the semi- discretization in space, angle, and frequency as a tensor-valued ordinary differential equation in time. The dynamical low-rank approximation is a low-rank factorization updating technique. It leads to differential equations for factors in a decomposition of the solution, which need to be solved numerically. The dynamical low-rank method seems particularly suitable for our purposes, because in many relevant test cases the propagation of radiation heat waves can be described by an asymptotic limit equation. Thus, the effective dynamics takes place on a lower-dimensional manifold. In this way, the six-dimensional (3 space, 2 angle, 1 frequency) radiation transport problem is reduced, both in computational cost as well as in memory footprint.

We seek a doctoral researcher with strong interest in numerical mathematics and high-performance computing. You will develop modifications of the dynamical low-rank method to enforce the numerical scheme's conservation of the overall energy and mass of particles, and to make the scheme asymptotic-preserving. A special focus will be on the investigation of parallelization strategies so that we obtain an efficient high-performance computing (HPC) implementation. Together with application scientists you perform simulations of radiation heat waves in realistic application test cases and especially investigate the memory use of the new method.

Doctoral Researcher (f/m/d – 75 %) for the CRC 1173 Project “Mixing and resonances in magnetic fluids”

The Collaborative Research Center “Wave phenomena – analysis and numerics” (CRC 1173), of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is currently seeking to recruit, as soon as possible, limited to three years a doctoral Researcher (f/m/d – 75 %).

Stability and the asymptotic behavior are central questions in the study of fluid dynamics and partial differential equations. Here in particular mixing effects have become a prominent field of research. On the one hand, mixing effects introduce very fine scales which pose major challenges for the modeling and stability analysis. On the other hand, these rapid oscillations also lead to cancellation and homogenization which has a stabilizing effect on the velocity field of a fluid — a phenomenon which is known as inviscid damping. Building on results for the Euler and the Vlasov-Poisson equations, a main objective of the project “Mixing and resonances in magnetic fluids” will be to extend these results to include magnetic interactions in fluids
