Einstein Visiting Fellows and Professorships

The Einstein Visiting Fellowship and Einstein Professorship aim to enhance the international profile of universities and research institutions in Berlin by involving leading scientists and scholars from abroad in long-term academic research collaborations. Our Einstein Visiting Fellows are:

Scaling Cascades in Complex Systems (collaborative research centre CRC 1114)

Complex processes involving cascades of scales are ubiquitous in current natural science research. Such processes feature more than two characteristic scales, their smallest and largest scales are widely separated, and much of their scale range participates in the process interactions. Also, they are often too complex for experimental studies, but with the steady increase of compute power there is hope that they can be understood through computational simulations. Such simulations remain very challenging, however, as their wide range of scales is associated with very large numbers of degrees of freedom and in many cases this will prohibit brute-force all-detail computational modeling far into the future...

Berlin Mathematical School (BMS)

The Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) is a joint graduate school of the mathematics departments of the three major Berlin universities, TU Berlin, FU Berlin, and HU Berlin.
BMS offers a uniform setting for graduate studies (from bachelor to PhD) in mathematics in Berlin, a coordinated, highly diverse course program in English (Phase I, from bachelor to qualifying exams in two years, German language skills are not necessary), access to all math research groups in Berlin for a PhD (Phase II), in particular to the DFG Research Training Groups and other ongoing research projects, intensive mentoring during the whole duration of studies, and support in non mathematical issues ranging from housing to visas and from child care to language courses.
BMS invites excellent mathematics students from Germany, Europe and all over the world to join BMS - and to make good use of the ample opportunities offered by the rich and diverse mathematics teaching and research environment in Berlin.

DZLM – German Centre for Mathematics Teacher Education

DZLM – Deutsches Zentrum für Lehrerbildung Mathematik
Initiated in 2011, the German Centre for Mathematics Teacher Education (DZLM) is Germany’s first nationwide centre providing teacher training in mathematics. The centre was initiated and is funded by the Deutsche Telekom Foundation (www.telekom-stiftung.de).
The DZLM focuses on developing long-lasting CPD-programmes for multipliers – research-based and practically relevant. These multipliers are teachers themselves (from pre-, primary and secondary schools) who in turn offer professional development courses, advice and support to other teachers, e.g. by supervising professional learning communities. The Centre also provides professional development courses and materials that target specific types of teachers and their educators, e.g. educators who teach mathematics out-of-field, i.e. outside their speciality area, as well as pre-school teachers. All courses are continuously improved based on empirical evidence and are disseminated at a large scale...

ECDF - Einstein Center Digital Future

The Einstein Center Digital Future is an inter-university nucleus for research on the digitalization of our society. Its aim is to foster innovative, cutting-edge interdisciplinary research, and to provide outstanding training for talented young scholars. The Einstein Center Digital Future is a public-private partnership, initiating around 50 new professorships, and bringing together universities, non-university research institutes, and industrial enterprises, as well as regional and federal ministries. The scale of this alliance between public entities, sponsors and supporters is unique in Berlin’s history as a center of academic endeavor.
Areas of reaearch are e.g. smart housing, smart cities, smart mobility, digital education, bioinformatics, personalized medicine, digital diagnostics, new methods in genome data analysis and biomedical imaging as well as semantic data intelligence, identity management, the physical foundations of IT security, the Internet of Things and wearable technologies. The topics of the latest generation of water and sewage systems, digitalization and the workplace as well as multicultural aspects of digitalization also play a role.

Research Campus MODAL

MODAL is a cluster of Mathematical Optimization and Data Analysis Laboratories
On the campus of Freie Universität Berlin. It brings together partners from research on one hand - Freie Universität Berlin, Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum für Informationstechnik Berlin (ZIB),the Berlin Centre for computer science Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum – and economy and industry (free enterprise) on the other hand. Its fields of research and application are data driven mathematical modeling, simulation and optimization of complex processes in logistics, Clinical Research and Health Care. MODAL’s goal is also the optimization of networks like those in public transport, gas supply and medical data. Mathematics is a key factor in making these developments successful in the future. MODAL works on application-oriented, interdisciplinary and collaborative research solutions.
