internships and one post-doc position) opened in Nancy :
PhD opening at the University of Groningen
The group of Probability and Statistics at the University of Groningen invites applications for a
4-year PhD position
During your PhD you will work at the forefront of research in topological data analysis and spatial random networks. While the previous years have brought forth outstanding progress in the description of large combinatorial random graphs, the understanding of random structures with spatial dependencies is still in its infancy. A key component of your research will be to identify regimes that are amenable to a rigorous mathematical description in terms of central limit theorems and large deviation principles.
Modern materials science is a major driving force behind the interest in topological data analysis and spatial random networks, since the insights gained from appropriate mathematical models make it possible to reduce the number of time-consuming experiments. With the newly established CogniGron, the University of Groningen has created an interdisciplinary research center with the goal of making progress towards cognitive computing. Hence, you will have the unique opportunity to interact broadly with colleagues outside mathematics. You will also be expected to contribute to the teaching at the faculty.
Hence, if you have graduated with an outstanding Master's degree (or are about to do so soon) and are committed to working on fundamental research questions, we are very much looking forward to your application. Any background knowledge in large deviation theory, random networks or central limit theorems will help you to get a smoother start.
We offer a full-time PhD position for 4 years. The salary and working hours are determined according to the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. In 2019, PhD candidates started with € 2,325 gross per month; for a candidate in the fourth year, this figure rises to € 2,972. In addition to that, the salary scheme comprised 8% of the yearly salary as holiday bonus and 8.3% as end of your bonus.
We are an equal opportunity employer that values diversity. We have adopted an active policy to increase the number of female scientists across all disciplines of the university.
We envision that you join us on April 1, 2020 or later. Please send us until January 27, 2020 your cover letter, CV, Master's thesis (or a preliminary version) and transcript of records. All documents should be sent to dr. Christian Hirsch: firstname.lastname@example.org, who will also be happy to answer your questions on the position.
