Postdoctoral Positions in the Max Planck Research Group "Rigidity and Flexibility in PDEs"

created by cagnetti on 11 Oct 2017

Deadline: 1 dec 2017

We are seeking two postdoctoral researchers, initially for two years with the option of an extension to a third year (the payment is based on the Collective Wage Agreement for the Civil Service (TVöD) corresponding to 100 percent of Pay Group 13) to join the new Max Planck Research Group ‘Rigidity and Flexibility in PDEs’ at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig (https:/ The positions do not carry teaching duties, but offer the possibility of teaching an advanced course in our international graduate school if desired.

The main focus of the research group will be on different types of rigidity and flexibility properties in PDEs including:

- nonlocal PDEs with an emphasis on unique continuation problems, regularity theory and applications to inverse and control problems,

- elliptic and parabolic free boundary problems of obstacle type,

- non-convex problems in the calculus of variations and in elasticity, in particular motivated by problems arising in the modelling of shape-memory alloys.

The earliest possible starting date for the positions is January 2018 (but is flexible else). Please upload your application documents (CV, list of publications, transcript of your PhD certificate, research statement, and names and contact data of three referees willing to write a letter of recommendation) at


by 01.12.2017 (we will however consider applications until the posts are filled).
