Deadline:  2019-04-14

Location:  Nijmegen, Netherlands

The Department of Mathematics at Radboud University (Nijmegen, Netherlands) is seeking an outstanding, highly motivated PhD candidate to work on a project in geometric analysis and mathematical general relativity. In particular, you will consider (weak) solutions of the Einstein equations and their global geometry. The position is part of a larger research programme and associated with Dr. Annegret Burtscher. You should hold an MSc in Mathematics (or a related discipline with a strong mathematical component) by the starting date. Applications from candidates with a suitable background in analysis, differential geometry and/or general relativity are particularly welcome. Proficiency in spoken and written English is essential.

The duration of the contract is 4 years and includes a light teaching load. Upon successful completion you will be awarded a PhD from Radboud University. You will be encouraged to attend and contribute to international scientific meetings.

The Department of Mathematics is part of the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP). IMAPP has a friendly and open atmosphere, and a strong expertise in mathematical physics and analysis.

Please submit your application by April 14, 2019 through the online form on the webpage and include a letter of motivation, a CV, a transcript of records, an abstract of your Master’s thesis (if applicable) and contact details of two academic reference writers:

We encourage applications from underrepresented groups in STEM. The starting date of the position is expected in August 2019, but negotiable.

Interviews are likely to be held in April 2019, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.
