Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty II - Insti­tute of Math­em­at­ics

Research assist­ant - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

under the reserve that funds are gran­ted - part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

Work­ing field:

You will be work­ing on the devel­op­ment and imple­ment­a­tion of math­em­at­ical algorithms for large-scale optim­iz­a­tion prob­lems in the field of energy sys­tem mod­el­ing as part of the inter­dis­cip­lin­ary joint pro­ject UNSEEN fun­ded by the BMWi.

The research task focuses on the solu­tion of lin­ear and mixed-integer pro­grams using high-per­form­ance com­put­ing. In addi­tion, Ber­lin offers a rich math­em­at­ics land­scape, which is par­tic­u­larly inter­est­ing for young sci­ent­ists thanks to the cluster of excel­lence MATH+ with the Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School for gradu­ate stud­ies.

Fur­ther inform­a­tion on this pos­i­tion will be given by Prof. Dr. Thor­sten Koch


  • suc­cess­ful com­pleted uni­versity degree (Dip­lom, Mas­ter or equi­val­ent) in Math­em­at­ics or a closely related course of stud­ies
  • in depth know­ledge of algorithmic dis­crete math­em­at­ics, espe­cially of lin­ear and mixed-integer pro­grams
  • advanced know­ledge of at least one prgram­ming lan­guage
  • exper­i­ence in using optim­iz­a­tion soft­ware
  • exper­i­ence with imple­ment­ing par­al­lel algorithms
  • an inde­pend­ent and goal-ori­ented way of work­ing
  • abil­ity to cooper­at­ive and com­mu­nic­at­ive sci­entific col­lab­or­a­tion with part­ners of the joint pro­ject
  • good know­ledge of the Ger­man and Eng­lish lan­guage

How to ap­ply:

Please send your applic­a­tion with the ref­er­ence num­ber and the usual doc­u­ments prefer­ably by e-mail to or in writ­ing to Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin - Der Präsid­ent - Fak­ultät II, Insti­tut für Math­em­atik, Prof. Dr. Koch, Sekr. MA 6-2, Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Ber­lin.

To ensure equal oppor­tun­it­ies between women and men, applic­a­tions by women with the required qual­i­fic­a­tions are expli­citly desired. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored. The TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to the goals of equal oppor­tun­it­ies.

Please send cop­ies only. Ori­ginal doc­u­ments will not be returned.
