TitlePhD / PostDoc: algorithms & multiscale modeling energy systems
CategoryJob in Academia
EmployerBTU Cottbus-Senftenberg
LocationGermany, Brandenburg, Cottbus
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
The newly established Energy Innovation Center (EIZ) in Cottbus is looking for 
ambitious PostDocs and PhD students in the area of scientific computing, mainly 
algorithms, multiscale modeling, and optimization:

1) Algorithm engineering and optimization for multiscale problems in 
multi-energy systems (PostDoc)

2) Algorithms in multiscale modeling (PhD student)

Both positions deal with the design and implementation of efficient numerical 
algorithms for problems in next generation mutli-energy systems. Tasks depend 
on the project partners, but address issues in scientific and high-performance 
computing, parallelization, optimization, networks, model coupling, data 
management, and data assimilation on heterogeneous and HPC hardware, to name a 

Successful candidates will be working in an international group of engineers, 
physicists, and mathematicians. Potential candidates should be motivated to 
perform fundamental research that is linked to applications. We seek applicants 
with a scientific attitude, a strong background in scientific computing, and 
with an open mind towards novel methods. 

A very good Master (M.Sc.), and, for the PostDoc position, a very good PhD 
degree, in a relevant engineering or natural sciences discipline is required.

Good command of the English language and excellent command of at least one 
programming language (preferably C++) is a must. 

Experience in at least two of the following fields is desired: algorithm 
engineering, computer science, scientific and high-performance computing, 
programming, numerical methods, partial differential equations, CFD, 
optimization, multiscale modeling, stochastic methods, data-driven modeling, 
and/or data assimilation.

The positions are associated with the Scientific Computing Lab (SCL) of the 
Energy Innovation Center (EIZ) Cottbus, hosted partly by the Chair of Numerical 
Fluid and Gas Dynamics and the Department of Discrete Mathematics and Computer 
Science of the Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus-Senftenberg. 
The mission of the EIZ is to bundle transdisciplinary research activities on 
next generation energy systems by connecting departments from BTU with federal 
research institutions and companies. 

The city of Cottbus is located about 100 km South of Berlin and 100 km 
North-East of Dresden in the area state of Brandenburg. It owns the BTU main 
campus, which is in the heart of Lusatia. Latter is one of the three major 
energy regions of Germany, which is currently becoming a center for clean 
energy research.

In case you are interested, please contact us via sending your CV (preferably 
in PDF format) to Please use either EIZ-POSTDOC or 
EIZ-PHD as subject in the e-mail.
