Job advertisement

We advertise an opening for

in the group of Ivan Veselic at the chair of Analysis, Dynamical Systems, and Mathematical Physics at the Department of Mathematics at the TU Dortmund starting in summer/autumn 2022.

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.

The positions are partially funded by research grants and partially through teaching duties. Hence, both solid mathematical education & previous research experience on one hand and the ability to teach in German, possibly after an adaptation period, on the other, play a role in the selection process.

A PhD student applicant is expected to have acquired a sound knowledge in analysis/differential equations and probability theory, for instance by having taken courses & exams in these topics.

An applicant for the postdoc position is additionally expected to have experience in research in at least one of the mentioned fields. Knowledge of physics is an advantage.

The future research of the successfull candidates will focus on elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations. Moreover certain aspects of the following mathematical fields will play a role in the project

The variety of topics offer the opportunity to broaden the mathematical foundations. If candidates had previous experience in some of the mentioned areas they should point this out in their application.

Application emails should be

Candidates for the PhD position should provide the following items:

Candidates with completed PhD should include additionally:

For details or updates please consult the webpage

The chair of analysis, dynamical sytems & mathematical physics and the mathematics department in Dortmund provide a stimulating research environment. The chair coorganises an active weekly seminar, please consult this page for a list of previous talks. 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.
