New School for Simulation and Data Sciences (SSD)

The sector teaching, young researcher qualification, and training within the Center for Simulation and Data Sciences is represented by the School of Simulation and Data Sciences (SSD). The SSD is the consolidation of the German Research School for Simulation Sciences (GRS) and the AICES Graduate School and represents further advancements as well as new projects.

Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University decided to fund 15 positions for doctoral candidates within the SSD. The projects were chosen based on two competitive calls for proposals::

1) High definition analysis of packed bed chromatography - Prof. Marek Behr (RWTH), Dr. Eric von Lierse (FZJ)

2)Generalized Langevin equation-based simulations for mesoscale description of neural cascades - Prof. Benjamin Stamm (RWTH), Dr. Vania Calandrini (FZJ)

3) Rigidity theory-based prediction of protein stability in ionic liquids and seawater for guiding protein engineering - Prof. Ulrich Schwaneberg, Dr. Mahdi Davari (RWTH), Prof. Holger Gohlke (FZJ)

4) Implant topology optimisation for improving adhesion at the bone-implant interface- Prof. Roger A. Sauer (RWTH), Dr. Bo Perrson (FZJ)

Massively parallel adjoints - Prof. Uwe Naumann, Dr Johannes Lotz (RWTH), Dr. Eric von Lieres, Dr. Jörn Ungermann (FZJ)

6) Efficient all-atom RNA and DNA simulations - Prof. Ivan Costa (RWTH, UK Aachen), Prof. Giulia Rossetti, Dr. Sadipan Mohanty (FZJ)

7) Prediction of ligand protein interactions and brain singling cascades using machine learning approaches: olfaction as a test scenario - Prof. Marc Sehr (RWTH), Prof. Mercedes Alfonso-Prieto, Prof. Alejandro Giorgetti (FZJ)
