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.
