Analysis of singular and random systems
funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), offers several PhD positions at Bielefeld University, starting October 1st, 2018.
The IRTG is a joint research program established by the Faculty of Mathematics at Bielefeld University, Germany, and the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Seoul National University, South Korea. In a truly international and competitive environment, doctoral students will study singular and random systems.
The IRTG concentrates on advanced techniques from the mathematical field of Analysis together with latest developments in neighboring fields such as Mathematical Physics, Geometry, and Probability Theory. The focus will be on the mathematical analysis of problems which generically exhibit singular features or randomness. The topics include nonlinear wave equations, integro-differential equations, oscillator models, random matrices, generalized Dirichlet and magnetic energy forms, analysis on manifolds and fractal metric spaces. The qualification program of the IRTG includes a structured course program in English and a six-months research stay at Seoul National University.
PhD students of the IRTG will be offered an E 13 TV-L (75%) position (depending on previous professional experience starting at approx. 1600€ monthly net income) for up to 3 years.
Candidates should hold an excellent Master degree (or an equivalent degree) in Mathematics, Mathematical Physics or a neighboring field. Moreover, communication skills are important for a successful integration into the IRTG and the participating departments. Proficiency in English is required whereas prior knowledge of German is not mandatory.
Bielefeld University has received a number of awards for its achievements in the provision of equal opportunity and has been recognized as a family friendly university.
