Duties: The objectives of this project are: To assess existing energy saving devices (ESD) and understand fundamentals of their interaction with ship hull, propuslor and other appendages at the stern and their applicability across a range of ship types; to classify ESD performance and application for a selected ESD family with an in depth investigation (CFD, model testing) and assess changes in ESD performance in various operational conditions; to conduct a systematic assessment of ESD efficiency and applicability on various ship hulls for different operating profiles. Comparisons at ship and model scale are also necessary, involving model tests and full scale trials data if available. Alternatively model CFD compared with ship-scale CFD investigating scaling to investigate differences between ship & model CFD predictions, where the boundary layer differences need to be taken into account for the size and orientation of any ESDs. The research will lead to development of a modelling tool that will allow high level assessment of an overall efficiency of ship with ESD and their impact on the ship performance during operation

One step of the likelihood computation in the FastCodeML computational evolutionary biology code is the eigendecomposition of one 61x61 matrix. This step becomes a bottleneck for scalability because it is essentially sequential because current numerical libraries consider the problem too small to attempt parallelization.

The computation of maximum likelihood for a forest of phylogenetic trees is challenging for an efficient and scalable parallel implementation. But the data structures could be reinterpreted as a Direct Acyclic Graph (DAG) and traversed using a dataflow scheduling in which each node independently fires the computation when all antecedent data are ready. This fine grained computational architecture provides much more opportunities of efficient parallelization and also make possible the reduction in redundant computations over the tree branches

We seek candidates who fit into the broad spectrum of the Cluster of Excellence. Depending on the respective research focus, candidates become members of the “Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences” or of the “Faculty of Law and Economics”. The HCM-Research-Areas are: ‘Geometry of differential operators: from local to global properties’; ‘Shape, pattern and partial differential equations’; ‘Mathematics of quantum physics’; ‘Analytic, algebraic, and combinatorial aspects of moduli theory’; ‘Structures and invariants in algebra and topology’; ‘Stochastics in discrete, singular, and infinite dimensional structures’; ‘Stochastic market models and aggregation’; ‘Mechanism design and game theory’; ‘High-Dimensional problems and multi-scale methods’; ‘Algorithms, combinatorics, and complexity’
Minimum Requirements: We are looking for young researchers holding a doctoral degree who are about to develop their own research agenda and who have already demonstrated their scientific independence by relevant publications. Candidates should have some international research experience. German language skills are not required
