We are looking for an ambitious, excellent PhD student for Applied Mathematics starting in January
2019 or later for three years. The successful candidate will join the research group of Prof. Ansgar
Jüngel at the Institute for Analysis and Scientific Computing of the Vienna University of Technology.
The research focus of the group is on nonlinear partial differential equations, including crossdiffusion
systems and structure-preserving numerical schemes, inspired by applications from
biology (biological cells, population dynamics) and physics (semiconductors, quantum physics).

The position is based on a regular working contract including social security. The pre-tax salary is
about 2096 Euro (14 times per year). The position comes with a teaching load of max. 4h/week
(exercise classes).

The succesful candidate will benefit from the activities of the Doctoral School "Dissipation and
dispersion in nonlinear PDEs" ( and the "Vienna Center for PDEs"
( Vienna is one of the most livable cities world-wide with an excellent
infrastructure, a huge cultural program, and various recreational opportunities.

The Vienna University of Technology intends to increase the number of women on its faculty and
therefore specifically invites applications by women. Among equally qualified applicants women will
receive preferential consideration.

Application Instructions

The candidate must have or be close to obtain a Master in Mathematics or related fields. A strong
background in (nonlinear) partial differential equations is required. PhD candidates are invited to
send a detailed CV and a short description of current scientific interests as a single pdf file by
e-mail to until 09 December 2018.
