Two postdoc possitions

Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences | Prague, Czech Republic


The Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences (IM CAS) is seeking two researchers for the project “Dissipative systems in fluid dynamics” coordinated by Prof. Eduard Feireisl and funded by the Czech Science Foundation. Applications are invited from candidates who have completed their PhD within the last 5 years (or will have completed it before the time of hiring), and who have a strong background in the mathematical theory of fluid dynamics. Excellent knowledge of PDEs and functional analysis, including the framework of Sobolev spaces and weak solutions, is required. Both postdoctoral fellows will concentrate on the concept of generalized solutions. One fellow will focus on the applications of the abstract theory for designing efficient numerical schemes, the second one will work on the stability of solutions and their asymptotic behaviour under general, possibly stochastic perturbations. The positions are granted for a maximum of 30 months starting 1 July 2024. We require verbal and written English communication skills and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively. Publications, as well as other activities and professional achievements, will be judged by the stage of the applicant's career. The successful applicant will be based at the Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, and will perform research in the areas of the project. He/she is also expected to take part in activities of the Department of Evolution Differential Equations, such as seminars and workshops organized by the group. No teaching is involved. Starting date: 1 July 2024 Contract length: 30 months Estimated salary: CZK 48 000 per month Please apply ONLY through our online application system where you also find more details in the official announcement.
