The German–Korean International Research Training Group (IRTG) 2235 “Searching for the regular in the irregular: Analysis of singular and random systems” funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), offers several PhD positions at Bielefeld University, starting January 1, 2021.
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 study singular and random systems.
The IRTG concentrates on advanced techniques from the mathematical field of analysis including geometric, stochastic and numerical analysis together with latest developments in neighboring fields such as mathematical physics and probability theory. The focus is on the mathematical analysis of problems which generically exhibit singular features or randomness. The topics include stochastic dynamics, stochastic partial differential equations, machine learning, nonlinear wave equations, integrodifferential equations, random matrices, generalized Dirichlet 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 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.
