Position ID: 3222-POSTDOCMATMAT [#22583]
Position Title: Quantifying uncertainties in first-principle material simulations
Position Type: Postdoctoral
Position Location: Lausanne, Vaud 1015, Switzerland
Subject Areas: Bayesian methods, computational mathematics, materials modelling

Position Description:    

The mathematics for materials modelling group (MatMat, https://matmat.org) at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher position. We seek an outstanding candidate with a PhD in mathematics or a related subject and with considerable experience in Bayesian regression, multi- fidelity methods, uncertainty quantification or inverse problems on applications in physics or engineering.

The activities of the MatMat group revolve around understanding modern materials simulations from a mathematical point of view – and to develop algorithms to make such simulations faster, quantify their errors or make them more reliable. You will become part of a young and energetic team, fully integrated with both the mathematics and the materials institutes as well as cross-disciplinary initiatives. The goal of this project will be to investigate the opportunities for uncertainty quantification in materials modelling enabled by modern tools such as algorithmic differentiation (AD). Due to the rather unexplored nature of this topic, a variety of research questions could be tackled, depending on your interests and prior background. As part of the project you will collaborate with researchers from diverse backgrounds and acquire the broad skillset required to become a successful independent researcher in this exciting field.

Screening of candidates starts 1st August 2023 and continues until the position is filled.
