Deadline: 15 nov 2023

The Delft Institute for Applied Mathematics (DIAM) at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) invites applications for a full-time postdoc position in the field of mathematical analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs). The postdoc researcher will be mentored by Dr. H. Yoldaş.

The research topics primarily revolves around PDEs stemming from structured population dynamics and kinetic theory. Examples of such equations include growth-fragmentation equations, run and tumble equations that model bacterial movement, and classical kinetic equations in gas theory, including the Boltzmann equation. For more insights into the research, please visit the Research & Publications of Dr. H. Yoldaş's webpage.

As a postdoctoral researcher, you will investigate the qualitative and quantitative aspects of these PDEs employing a diverse range of mathematical tools from PDE theory, functional analysis and probability theory. The specific research direction will be tailored to your background and interests, potentially encompassing topics such as well-posedness, long-term behavior analysis of PDEs, deriving PDEs from particle systems, and numerical analysis.

The appointment is for a duration of 1 year. The earliest possible starting date is January 1, 2024.

The successful candidate will focus on carrying out mathematical research. If requested by the candidate, there will be the possibility to teach (in English) but the teaching load shall be kept light. Communication will be in English. If desired by the candidate, there is the possiblity to take Dutch language courses offered by the Language Center for Languages and Academic Skills of TU Delft
