Doctoral student in Mathematics
Type of employment: Limit of tenure, 4 years
Extent: 100 %
Location: Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Division of Mathematics (Faculty of Science), Lund
First day of employment: 2013-06-01 or as soon as possible
Official Records Number: NPA 2013/138
The position is placed at the Faculty of Science.
The research will focus on nonlinear waves, especially water waves. The mathematical theory is based on partial differential equations and the study of these equations requires a combination of real and complex analysis, functional analysis and dynamical systems theory.
The position covers four years of postgraduate studies (research and course work) and one year of departmental duties, mainly teaching in mathematics.
The special requirements for admission to postgraduate studies in mathematics are completed courses in mathematics equivalent to at least 120 credits, of which 50 must be at advanced (MSc) level. The courses at basic and advanced level should include a degree project corresponding to at least 30 credits. Special eligibility may be obtained through equivalent studies; this will be assessed in each case.
Courses in differential equations and functional analysis are desirable merits.
The basic requirements for admission to postgraduate studies are: a degree at advanced (MSc) level, completed courses equivalent to at least 240 credits, of which 60 must be at advanced (MSc) level, or the equivalent knowledge or qualifications obtained in some other way, in Sweden or in another country.
Basis of Assessment
The employment of doctoral students is regulated in the Swedish Code of Statues 1998: 80. Only those who are or have been admitted to PhD-studies may be appointed to doctoral studentships. When an appointment to a doctoral studentship is made, the ability of the student to benefit from PhD-studies shall primarily be taken into account. In addition to devoting themselves to their studies, those appointed to doctoral studentships may be required to work with educational tasks, research and administration, in accordance with specific regulations in the ordinance.
When applying you should upload a current CV and a scanned copy of your academic transcript. Additional supporting documents such as letters of recommendation could also be submitted, but are not required.
