Department: Aerodynamics & Flight Mechanics Research Group
Workload: 100%
Duties: This project is an opportunity to develop and use new theoretical results to understand and control the physics of turbulent flows relevant to aerodynamic and hydrodynamic applications. You will become a part of a group of talented and highly motivated researchers in the Aerodynamics group, researching wall-bounded turbulence. The work is to design flow control surfaces to interact with turbulent flows in order to eliminate drag, or stabilise recently discovered nonlinear exact solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations. The investigation will involve mostly robust control theory, fluid mechanics and some direct numerical simulation (DNS)
Minimum Requirements: The candidate must have a passionate interest in control theory and/or fluid mechanics, ideally turbulence. Prospective candidates must have or be expecting a 1st class 4-year or MSc degree in a relevant subject (Engineering, Maths, Physics) and should enjoy mathematical work.

Department: Biozentrum
Duties: We are particularly interested in uncovering the principles by which genome-wide regulatory networks specify and maintain cell identity in multi-cellular organisms, how cells control and exploit the noise in gene regulatory processes, and how gene regulation evolves. Our lab also takes part in a number of collaborative projects within Switzerland including StoNets, which studies the ways in which cells control and exploit stochasticity in gene regulatory networks, and BrainStemX, which studies the gene regulatory networks underlying mammalian forebrain development. For this position we are in particular looking for candidates that are interested in developing methods for the analysis of next-generation sequencing data, including RNA-seq, single-cell RNA-seq, and ChIP-seq data. The precise topic of the project will be determined with the candidate
Minimum Requirements: We are looking for individuals that are interested to perform theoretical research in computational genomics, genome-wide regulatory networks, and stochastic gene regulation in single cells. Candidates should have strong mathematical and computational skills, and experience in such areas as stochastic processes, dynamical systems theory, and Bayesian statistics is a plus. Experience with next-generation sequencing data is desirable but not strictly required. Candidates do not necessarily have to have a biological background but should have a strong desire to directly work with experimental biologists. The candidates should have a good knowledge of English. German is helpful but not necessary

Duties: Deep learning has been successful when the number of data-cases (N) is large, but much less so in a regime when N is relatively small compared to the number of features, p. To understand the complexities of the real world, future AI systems will have to become much more statistically efficient (i.e. learn more from less data). We identify three research themes to achieve that goal S1: Model the Symmetry properties inherent in data, S2: Inject expert knowledge by learning how to Synthesize data, S3: Use Semi-supervised learning to exploit unlabeled data. The candidate is expected make theoretical and practical progress on these topics and apply these new insights to a real world problem where the p>>N issue is key, such as MRI data
Minimum Requirements: Master's degree in statistics or computer science (preferably with a specialization in artificial intelligence and/or machine learning).

Duties: As the sizes of the system as well as the system temperature rapidly increase, high system failure rates are observed. A solution to the application-level resilience to faults problem must meet the following requirements: (i) Efficiency, without compromising performance; (ii) The reliability level must be user controlled – greater reliability incurs a higher cost (resources, CPU time, energy consumption, or allocation price); and (iii) Minimal code changes in the application. Scheduling algorithms that detect faults and are able to manage them are called fault tolerant. The most common fault tolerance strategies include task replication (via double or triple modular redundancy) and application checkpointing. However, it is unclear which of the existing solutions will scale to the size of the exascale computing systems expected by the beginning of the next decade
Minimum Requirements: A Master's degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Mathematics. Very good programming skills (C, C++, Java). Very good knowledge of operating systems, in particular Linux. Fluency in English (verbally and in writing)

Duties: Each level of parallelism requires at least a scheduler. For instance, at the cluster level there are batch schedulers and runtime systems. Depending on the level of parallelism, schedulers can be viewed as global and local. The scheduling goals differ from level to level and may be conflicting between levels. For instance, cluster level schedulers typically aim at maximizing fairness among all applications in terms of their execution time which may result in non-optimal execution times for certain applications. Application level schedulers typically aim at minimizing the execution time of a single application, which may result in non-balanced execution times among applications. Addressing the problem jointly at multiple levels is called multi-level scheduling and constitutes a multi-objective combinatorial optimization problem
Minimum Requirements: A Master's degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Mathematics; Very good programming skills (C, C++, Java); Very good knowledge of operating systems, in particular Linux; Fluency in English (verbally and in writing)
