research agenda and distinguished expertise in Uncertainty
Quantification with strong competency in at least one of the areas:
mathematical and numerical analysis of stochastic problems, statistics,
applied probability theory or *optimization*. Particular expertise on
data assimilation, molecular dynamics, quantum mechanics, conservation
laws and a posteriori error analysis for stochastic problems will be
specially valued. This position is affiliated with the Chair of
Uncertainty Quantification and the Department of Mathematics. The
successful candidate should on the one hand initiate and develop
interdisciplinary collaborations with other research groups at RWTH, in
