The Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ is a dynamic interdisciplinary research center that focuses on application-driven mathematical research relevant to our society. Its three main goals are to train highly skilled young mathematicians across the entire breadth of mathematics, to develop innovative application-oriented mathematics with a focus on data-driven modelling, simulation, and optimization, and to open up new mathematical thinking spaces. MATH+ is supported by Berlin mathematics as a whole in cooperation with other scientific disciplines. Moreover, MATH+ strives to communicate its findings actively to the general public. MATH+ will fund six positions for heads of independent junior research groups in application-driven basic mathematical research, in order to strengthen support for excellent young researchers who already have some years of postdoc experience, and to give them a head start in building their own research profile and group within the supportive environment of a large Cluster of Excellence.

The position is limited until 2022/12/31; a three-year-extension after a positive evaluation is possible, under the reserve that funds are granted.

Working field: Research in the field of "Mathematical Foundations of Data Science", for example, in the field of applied harmonic analysis, imaging science, compressed sensing, machine learning or statistical learning theory.

* Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) and doctoral dissertation in Mathematics, Computer Science or related disciplines.
* Research experience in "Mathematical Foundations of Data Science"
* Excellent written and spoken English

Applicants should be distinguished by an excellent doctorate and their own research results in this area and should have achieved initial international visibility.
