Oct 17, 2017 - Open Positions (Contact Mechanics and HPC)
With great excitement I can announce today that I will take up a new position as Full Professor at the Universität der Bundeswehr (UniBw) München in early 2018. I will build up a new research group for "Computer-Based Simulation" within the Institute for Mathematics and Computer-Based Simulation there. For this new group, I am currently looking for two doctoral candidates / postdocs for full-time positions (TVöD 13/14) in computational contact mechanics and HPC research, both also including teaching or HPC administration responsibilities. Fluency in German is essential for these positions. The envisaged starting date would be Jan 01, 2018 and the official job posting (in German) can be downloaded here. Please contact me as soon as possible for further details!
