Professorship (W3) „Data-driven Simulation of Fluids on High-Performance Computers“

New job offer: Professorship (W3), Data-driven Simulation of Fluids on High-Performance Computers“

The new professorship aims at a unified perspective on data-integrated simulation science and high performance computing. New approaches combining advanced HPC and data-driven techniques for modeling, simulation, and analysis should be developed for innovative applications in multi-phase flow and/or porous media and in interdisciplinary collaboration between engineering, sciences, mathematics, and computer science. The professorship will be established at the University of Stuttgart in the context of the DFG-funded Cluster of Excellence EXC 2075 “Data-integrated Simulation Science”. The professor will be jointly appointed by the Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science (SC SimTech) and the Faculty 6: Aerospace Engineering and Geodesy of the University of Stuttgart.

We are looking for an excellent scientist with international standing who will advance the field of data-driven simulation of fluids on high-performance computers in research and teaching and provide innovative contributions to several research foci of SC SimTech and the Faculty 6:

  • Methods and software development for simulation on high performance computers
  • Simulation on high performance computers
  • Applications of data assimilation and model reduction
  • Modeling with data-based methods
  • Application of artificial intelligence and machine learning methods
  • Massive parallel data-driven numerical prediction


The research in close collaboration with our international and increasingly diverse team should be tightly integrated into the project networks of the EXC SimTech (see and should be supported by the acquisition of third-party funding and active involvement in further research projects of the University (like DFG-funded Collaborative Researcher Centers and Training Groups as well as Cyber Valley). We expect contributions to teaching in the Bachelor and Master programs of the Stuttgart Center for Simulation Science and Faculty 6 addressing also students from mathematics, computer science, and the sciences.
