PhD position in Analysis of PDEs
Updated: 12 Dec 2019
Within the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM), Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Sciences of Delft University of Technology, we offer a PhD position in the research group Analysis for a duration of four years. The PhD candidate will be supervised by M.V. Gnann. Interactions with other members of DIAM or external collaborators are encouraged. The thesis will deal with current questions on the analysis of (stochastic) nonlinear partial differential equations connected to free-boundary problems in fluid mechanics or applications in neuroscience. The candidate is expected to finish his/her studies with a PhD thesis and disseminate results through publications in peer-review journals and presentations at international conferences. The position also entails a light teaching load.
Master in mathematics or a related discipline (or an equivalent degree that qualifies for a PhD position) is required. The candidate should have a strong interest and sufficient prerequisites in functional analysis and the analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations. Knowledge in probability theory and an interest in applications is advantageous.
TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners.
