PHD CANDIDATE FOR MATHEMATICS (Ref. BAP2017547)
Employment: Full time Duration: Certain duration City: Leuven Apply until: 30/10/2017
The Analysis Section of the Departement of Mathematics and the Departement of Mathematics of Radboud University in The Netherlands are seeking an outstanding, highly motivated PhD candidate to work on a project called `Matrixvalued Special Functions and Applications in Physics’. The project concerns the area of analysis, more particularly special functions, with applications in physics. The project is funded by Radboud University and KU Leuven; you will work at each of these two universities for two years. The project is part of a larger programme strengthening the ties between Radboud University and KU Leuven and is supervised by Prof. Erik Koelink (Radboud University) and Prof. Walter Van Assche (KU Leuven). Upon successful completion, you will be awarded a PhD from both Radboud University and KU Leuven. You will be encouraged to attend and contribute to international scientific meetings. You will have a light teaching load and, if necessary, you will be required to perform your teaching duties in English.
PHD CANDIDATE FOR MATHEMATICS
You will be based at the Department of Mathematics at Radboud University during the first two years. The Department of Mathematics is part of the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP). IMAPP has a friendly and open atmosphere, and a strong expertise in mathematical physics and analysis. This year, for the third time in the past five years, our mathematics programme received the highest undergraduate student ratings in a national student survey.
You will be based at the Department of Mathematics at KU Leuven during the last two years of the project. The Department of Mathematics is part of the Faculty of Sciences at KU Leuven. You will work in the Section of Analysis, which has two research groups, one in Classical Analysis (CA) and one in Functional Analysis (FA), with many national and international researchers at the graduate and postdoctoral levels.
