At TU Dresden, Faculty of Mathematics, the Institute of Mathematical Stochastics offers a position as

Research Associate / PhD Student (m/f/x)

(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)

starting as soon as possible. The position comprises 75 % of the full-time weekly hours and it is limited for 3 years. The position offers the chance to obtain further academic qualification (e. g. PhD).

Tasks: The successful candidate is required to conduct research on the DFG-funded project “Lévy-driven Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes in infinite dimensions”. The position is within the international collaboration transCampus ( between Technische Universität Dresden and King’s College London. Working within this framework provides the candidate with an international training and a tandem supervision by Professor Anita Behme (TU Dresden) and Professor Markus Riedle (King’s College London) that will foster internationally competitive research.

A stay of 15 months at King's College London is planned as part of the contract period (can be divided into 2 to 3 periods if necessary). The candidate will profit from establishing contacts and gaining insights into structures and processes at both locations, while improving their language skills.

This research project aims at a better understanding of dynamical systems driven by cylindrical Lévy processes. The key aspect lies in establishing qualitative properties of the solution, such as regularity of trajectories, strong Feller property, stationarity, ergodicity, etc., some of which being closely related to analytical properties of the associated transition semigroup. It is expected that the results will enable the modelling and understanding of a wider range of applications which require a random perturbation by a highly irregular noise.

Requirements: university degree in mathematics, preferably with a focus in probability theory or analysis.

Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.
