The RTG 2229 is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). 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.
The PhD students (f/m/d) 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.
We are seeking PhD applicants (f/m/d) with an excellent master degree (or equivalent) in mathematics or theoretical physics. The applicant 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.
