for a PhD student or post-doc position in Analysis, Probability or Mathematical Physics
at the Department of Mathematics at the TU Dortmund starting in winter 2021.
The duration of a PhD student position is 3 years.
The duration of a postdoc position is 2 years.
In both cases a one year extension is possible under favourable circumstances.
Due to research funding there is a reduced teaching load.
After an adaptation period it needs to be carried out in German.
An applicant with completed PhD needs to have experience in research in analysis or probability theory.
A student applicant needs to have taken courses in partial differential equations and probability theory.
Knowledge of physics is of advantage. Of particular interest is expertise in any of the
elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations on bounded and unbounded domains
large deviations, concentration inequalities, entropy methods
Interested candidates with this profile should write an Email with
subject line: application 2021
and provide the following items:
CV (including academic education, positions, teaching experience, language skills, participation in workshops, international experience)
university degree(s) and transcript of records
all publications (if any)
two or more references (mentors) with name, affiliation and email address
Candidates with completed PhD should include additionally:
a summary of past research (circa 2 pages)
optional: future research plans (circa 1 page)
The chair of analysis, dynamical sytems & mathematical physics and the mathematics department in Dortmund provide
a stimulating research environment. The department
has several groups working in partial differential
equations, variational analysis, (optimal) control theory, stochastic processes,
random matrices, numerical analysis, finite element methods, differential geometry,
and several other fields. Together with the universities in Bochum, Duisburg and Essen, the
TU Dortmund comprises the
University Aliance Ruhr
