For the Mathematical Institute we are currently seeking to recruit, starting October 1st, 2019, limited to three years, several
PhD candidates (f/m/d)
- PART TIME (75%) -
The DFG Research Training Group "Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces" (RTG 2229) is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and jointly run by Heidelberg University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Its research focus is the systematic study of geometric spaces with regard to their asymptotic invariants and their behavior under deformations, degenerations, and taking limits. It provides a structured framework for a cross-boundary PhD training in geometry.
PhD students will benefit from a variety of qualification programs including advanced and tailor-made courses on the topics of the RTG. An intensive visitor's program, frequent workshops and PhD schools will contribute to a vibrant scientific environment. In addition, we offer professional skills modules.
Payment is according to the wage agreement of the civil service TV-L of salary level E13.
You must have an excellent master's degree (or equivalent) in mathematics or theoretical physics. Applicants should show a high engagement and have a strong theoretical background in one of the research topics of the RTG. A good command of English language is required.
We offer an attractive and modern workplace with access to excellent facilities of Heidelberg University, diverse and responsible tasks, a wide scope of advanced training options, supplementary pension with the VBL (Pension Authority for Employees in the Public Service Sector), flexible working time models, a job ticket (BW) allowance, and a cafeteria/canteen.
We prefer to balance the number of employees (f/m/d). Therefore, we kindly ask female applicants to apply for this job.
If qualified, severely disabled persons will be preferred.
Please send only complete applications including CV, motivation letter, Master thesis with extended abstract, copies of academic degrees, transcripts of records and two recommendation letters until
July 1st, 2019 to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, positions will remain open until suitable candidates have been identified. For further information,
