Open Positions

PhD-Students in Computational and Applied Mathematics

Research projects are available in the fields of mathematical model­ing, numerical methods as well as optimization for non-linear partial differential equations with applications in fluid and plasma dynam­ics. The projects typically incorporate multi-disciplinary aspects ran­ging from analysis and engineering to implementation.

Ideal candidates have completed a master or equivalent de­gree in Applied Mathematics or Computational Engineering with a very good academic record. Experience in numerical methods, physical models, and programming are advantageous. Most import­antly, interest in conducting research in transdisciplinary projects at the interface of mathematics and engineering is expected.

The PhD-Students will be hired as research assistants. After successful comple­tion of a PhD-thesis a doctoral degree in mathematics at RWTH Aachen can be awarded.

Responsibilities would include teaching tutorials in Mathematics and Computational Engineering at RWTH Aachen. English can be the teaching language in many courses, yet knowledge of German is appreciated.

Please send your CV, copies of your degree certificates, and a re­search statement with summary of your Master thesis electronically to

If you have questions please contact Prof. Manuel Torrilhon.
