soon as possible, limited to three years,
Doctoral Researchers (f/m/d – 75 %) for the project “Stability of nonlinear
The CRC has been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) since 2015.
Its goal is to analytically understand, numerically simulate, and eventually
manipulate wave propagation under realistic scenarios by intertwining analysis
The proposed doctoral project focuses on the stability and long-term dynamics
of nonlinear waves with the goal to handle couplings between dispersive and
We seek ambitious doctoral researchers with an interest in analysis and
partial differential equations. Within the project, you will learn about the
