The Department of Mathematics at the University of Duisburg-Essen offers a 3-year-scholarship for a PhD project to be conducted under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Jan Kohlhaase. Possible research topics include the representation theory of p-adic Lie groups, moduli spaces of p-divisible groups, p-adic Galois representations and the p-adic Langlands program.
Applicants are supposed to have completed or to be about to complete a master's program in mathematics with a strong focus on algebra, number theory or algebraic geometry.
The Department of Mathematics at the University of Duisburg-Essen hosts one of the largest groups of researchers in algebraic and arithmetic geometry in Germany. Currently, there is a group of about 25 PhD students and postdocs. We regularly offer a wide variety of advanced courses and seminars. For further information please consult the following web sites:
Your application has to include a CV, transcripts of records, a short letter of motivation, a list of advanced math courses you attended, a copy of your master's thesis and a letter of recommendation from a permanent faculty member (preferably the advisor of your master's thesis).
Please send your documents as pdf-files to firstname.lastname@example.org
Excellent students are invited to apply before March 31, 2018. We would particularly like to encourage female students to apply.
