MATHRIX Assistant Professor Programme

The Faculty for Mathematics and Computer Science has set up the MATHRIX Assistant Professor Programme to support gender equality in the mathematical sciences. For that purpose six assistant professor positions (Juniorprofessuren) equipped with an attractive start-up package were established. The positions run for 3+3 years each with regular calls for applications.

    The Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster: Dynamics-Geometry-Structure at the University of Münster invites applications for two

    MATHRIX Assistant Professorships in Mathematics
    salary level W1

    One of the positions will be filled in an area of theoretical, and one in an area of applied mathematics. The professorships are for three years with the possibility of an extension for another three years upon positive evaluation. In exceptional cases, a position may be tenured.

    Applications are particularly welcome if they strengthen, complement and/or connect existing research areas of the Cluster. Successful candidates should contribute to existing and/or future third-party funded grants.

    The professorships should contribute to gender equality within the mathematical sciences, which might for example be documented by an appropriate gender equality concept.

    Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in mathematics or in a nearby discipline. They should demonstrate a strong research record and appropriate teaching experience.

    The University of Münster is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the proportion of women in academics. Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements will be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal possibilities.

    The University of Münster is committed to employing more staff with disabilities. Candidates with recognised severe disabilities who have equivalent qualifications are given preference in hiring decisions.

    Applications including a cover letter, CV, list of publications, research plan relating to the research of Mathematics Münster, and teaching portfolio, should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file by 15 April 2021 to mathdek@uni-muenster.de.

Kristin Courtney

Mathematical Institute (since 2022)

Her research primarily concerns operator algebras, especially C*-algebras, and related objects such as operator systems and topological groups and groupoids.

Anna Gusakova

Institute for Mathematical Stochastics (since 2021)

Her major research area is Stochastic Geometry. This is a branch of modern probability theory, which is investigating various random geometric objects, starting from lines and polytopes and finishing by general random closed sets.

Theresa Simon

Institute for Applied Mathematics (since 2021)

Her research area is the calculus of variations, dealing primarily with problems originating in physics and materials science. In the area of pattern formation falls the study of micromagnetism, nonlocal isoperimetric problems, and the microstructures formed by shape memory materials. She also studies the Mean Curvature Flow in multiple phases as a model for grain growth in crystals, primarily from the gradient flow perspective.

Aleksandra Kwiatkowska

Institute for Mathematical Logic and Foundations of Mathematics (since 2020)

She works on the structure and dynamics of separable completely metrizable topological groups. Her research borders on topological dynamics, Ramsey theory, descriptive set theory and model theory.

Franziska Jahnke

Institute for Mathematical Logic and Foundations of Mathematics, area model theory of fields (since 2017)

Her work combines mathematical logic with applications in algebra. A large part of her work deals with Shelah's conjecture about NIP fields. Studying definable sets in valued fields forms a basis for this.

Mira Schedensack

Applied Mathematics: Institute for Analysis and Numerics, area numerical analysis of partial differential equations (2017-2019).

Her focus was on the development of new numerical schemes and the a priori and a posteriori error analysis with emphasis on non-conforming and adaptive finite element methods.
