About the Technical University of Munich
TUM is one of Europe’s top universities. It is committed to excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young scientists. The university also forges strong links with companies and scientific institutions across the world. TUM was one of the first universities in Germany to be named a University of Excellence. Moreover, TUM regularly ranks among the best European universities in international rankings.
PhD position in Mathematics
Within the Chair for Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing at the Centre for Mathematical Science of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) there is an opening for a PhD Position in Mathematics.
This research position is situated within the project Numerics of Riemann–Hilbert problems and operator determinants, which is part of the DFG funded Collaborative Research Centre SFB/TRR109 “Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics”. In this project, we study numerical methods for Riemann-Hilbert problems from mathematical physics and integrable systems in geometry. In particular, we study the preconditioning of Riemann-Hilbert problems by automatic transforms using tools from (discrete) optimization.
As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, TUM explicitly encourages applications from women as well as from all others who would bring additional diversity dimensions to the university’s research and teaching strategies. Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the same qualifications.
Candidates should send their applications including a letter of motivation, C.V., two letters of recommendation, and copies of all relevant examination certificates and academic testimonials in a single pdf file via email to Diane Clayton-Winter. Please indicate “PhD Position B03” in the subject line.
Email address for applications: email@example.com
Application deadline: August 1st, 2016
