  • Al-Khwarizmi Doctoral Fellowships at KAUST

    KAUST has launched a call for the Al-Khwarizmi Doctoral Fellowships, which is a pilot program for students originating from geographic Europe (i.e., 47 countries of the Council of Europe, https://www.coe.int/en/web/portal/47-members-states). There are two Al-Khwarizmi Doctoral Fellowships allocated to students interested to work within the Applied Mathematics and Computational Sciences Program.

    The call text is published here: https://cemse.kaust.edu.sa/alkhwarizmi

    Possible advisors in Applied Mathematics and Computational Science are https://cemse.kaust.edu.sa/amcs/people/professors

  • Phd Positions in Applied Math at Columbia University

    The applied mathematics program at Columbia University invites students to apply to our applied mathematics PhD program. Interested students can find more information about the application process here: https://www.apam.columbia.edu/applied-mathematics-doctoral-program

    In particular, this year, a Research Training Groups (RTG) grant from the National Science Foundation allows us to admit more students who are US citizens or permanent residents to be partially supported as RTG graduate fellows by this grant.

  • PhD Position at Basel

    Applications are invited for a PhD position funded by the collaborative research center “Energy transfers in ocean and atmosphere”, https://www.trr-energytransfers.de/. The project concerns qualitative analysis of large scale models for geophysical flow in the context of the research center.

    The PhD student will be part of Applied Analysis group at the Faculty of Mathematics at Uni Bremen supervised by Jens Rademacher.

    Details can be found at: https://www.uni-bremen.de/appanalysis/. Deadline for applications is Dec 28 2020.

  • One PhD and one Post-Doc positions at the University of Basel

    One PhD position and one Post-Doc position will soon be available within the ERC-funded research group of Gianluca Crippa at the University of Basel, Switzerland. The planned start for both positions is in the first months of 2021, but some flexibility will be possible.

    After a first year of probation, the PhD position will be extended for additional three years. The position includes some limited teaching, consisting in one exercise group per semester (correction of exercises by the students and discussion in a tutorial session).

    The Post-Doc position will be initially for one year, and flexibly extendable upon mutual agreement. It carries the same teaching load as the PhD position, however upon mutual agreement it could be replaced by lecturing a class (for students in mathematics) as main instructor.

    The research topics for both positions revolve around the themes of the ERC Starting Grant "Fluid Flows and Irregular Transport", in particular:
    • ordinary differential equations and continuity/transport equations with rough velocity
    • topics from fluid dynamics (Euler equations, vanishing viscosity, ...)
    • mixing of fluids
    • advection-diffusion equations
    • other PDEs related to transport models (for instance, conservation laws).
    Postdoctoral candidates are expected to have some expertise in at least one of the above areas, a solid background in the analysis of PDEs, harmonic analysis, and measure theory, and some degree of independence in research. Funding for traveling and for research collaborations will be available for both positions. More information about the research in the group is available at the webpages https://dmi.unibas.ch/en/persons/gianluca-crippa and https://erc-flirt.dmi.unibas.ch.

    Submission of candidatures, as well as informal inquiries, is possible via email to [email protected] Please include in the subject the string [PhD] or [PostDoc] depending on the position under consideration. The review of the candidatures will start in the middle of October, and will proceed until the positions will be filled.
