The department of Physics and Earth Sciences of Jacobs University Bremen (Germany) invites interested candidates to apply for a Postdoc position in Theoretical Physics in the field of Complex Systems, analyzed with tools from Nonlinear Dynamics and Statistical Physics. 
The project is on transient processes and rare events in complex systems, which are related to evolutionary game theory and in particular to heteroclinic dynamics. The focus is on the prediction of transient phenomena like spatio-temporal patterns of temporary winners in competitive interactions. Patterns range from regular temporal sequences of excitations in neural networks to self-organized spatial segregation and the formation of temporary alliances between species in ecological or social systems. Possible applications are to neural networks, in particular to cognitive dynamics, but also to ecological or social networks.
The position is for 2 years. It is allocated to the group of Prof. H. Meyer-Ortmanns and funded by the German research foundation (DFG). Other research topics in the group refer to the impact of stochastic fluctuations on dynamical systems with methods from statistical physics, currently with a focus on stability analyses and optimization tasks in power grids under various factors of risk. For further information and publications related to this project see .
Jacobs University provides a stimulating research environment with interdisciplinary research and an international student body with students from more than hundred nations. The campus language is English.
Your responsibilities:
The candidate should perform and extend previous bifurcation analyses for models of winnerless competition, which amount to coupled heteroclinic networks, and analyze the effect of interactions between these networks. Methods from large deviation theory should be applied to quantify the risk for rare events that are mediated by individual heteroclinic connections. Such events may be extinctions of items, species, or entire parts of a population.
Your qualifications:
Interested candidates should submit their application in a single pdf-file via Email directly to Hildegard Meyer-Ortmanns ([log in para visualizar]), including their CV (together with latest certificates), a summary of previous research, a motivation letter explaining their interest in future research, and contact information for two or three possible referees. The review of applications starts immediately until the position is filled. The start date is preferably by the end of this year or early 2021 unless otherwise agreed.
