PHD POSITIONS IN PURE MATHEMATICS

 

Financed by the long term Methusalem funding, the KU Leuven research groups in pure mathematics joined their forces in the research project "Classification, symmetries and singularities at the frontiers of algebra, analysis and geometry", encompassing the expertise of the different research groups involved and focusing on some of the most challenging problems in algebra, analysis and geometry. In this large scale research project that started in 2016, several PhD students and postdocs are employed. We organize colloquia, seminars and advanced courses. In this stimulating environment, all researchers are exposed to a broad spectrum of mathematical research with several collaboration opportunities.
