PhD Positions in Mathematics / Mathematical Physics Universität Bielefeld Germany

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 October 1st, 2018.
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 will study singular
and random systems.

The IRTG concentrates on advanced techniques from the mathematical field of Analysis together with
latest developments in neighboring fields such as Mathematical Physics, Geometry, and Probability
Theory. The focus will be on the mathematical analysis of problems which generically exhibit singular
features or randomness. The topics include nonlinear wave equations, integrodifferential equations,
oscillator models, random matrices, generalized Dirichlet and magnetic energy forms, analysis on
manifolds and fractal metric spaces. The IRTG offers a structured course program in English and a
six-months research stay at Seoul National University.
