The Faculty of Physics and Earth System Sciences, Institute of Theoretical Physics at Leipzig University seeks to fill the above position at the earliest opportunity, but by 1 October 2024 at the latest.

The PhD position is offered within the Mathematical Physics research group, led by Prof. Dr Dejan Gajic and will be part of the research project “The Mathematical Analysis of Extremal Black Holes and Gravitational Radiation” funded by a 2023 ERC Starting Grant. The PhD project will lie at the crossroads of mathematics and theoretical physics, aiming to tackle cutting-edge research questions related to the dynamical aspects of black holes using tools developed in the study of hyperbolic partial differential equations.

The selected PhD candidate will also be part of the International Max Planck Research School at Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig, where they will have the opportunity to interact more broadly with different areas of mathematics and mathematical physics.
