Title Computational Physics of Multiscale Phenomena
University FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg
Department Institute for Multiscale Simulation
Application Deadline Open until filled
Position Start Date Available Immediately
  • Erlangen, Bayern
  • Post-Doc
    Graduate Student
  • Physics - General

The Institute for Multiscale Simulation (MSS) of the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg ( is
currently seeking

1 graduate student and
1 postdoctoral researcher

in the field of

computational physics of multiscale phenomena

At the MSS we investigate the multiscale physics of particulate systems. The MSS hosts an interdisciplinary research team with a unique combination of scientists working numerically, theoretically and experimentally.

One of the most challenging tasks in computational physics is the investigation of phenomena which involve multiple length or time scales. Solving such multiscale problems is highly demanding but typically equally rewarding. The announced positions are dedicated to two topics from computational multiscale physics which are booth, scientifically appealing and application oriented:

-fracture in many-particle granular systems and -granular pipe flow

Depending on your interests and qualification, further topics from computational multiscale physics are possible.

You are highly motivated and you are deeply committed to research. You are able to work independently and as part of a team. You are equipped with an analytical and critical mind-set and you communicate clearly and concisely.

———————— -master’s degree or PhD in physics or related -background in computational physics -programming skills (e.g. C++, Python, Matlab) -experience in particle simulations (e.g. DEM)

——————— -one single pdf including your research statement, two references, your CV and, if applicable, a list of your publications -please send your application to

Prof. Thorsten Pöschel -open until the positions are filled

Please reference in your cover letter when
applying for or inquiring about this job announcement.
