Opening for PhD-student

At the the Institute of Applied Mathematics of the Delft University of Technology, we are offering a PhD position in Mathematics.

The research will take place in the analysis group, and the daily supervisor will be B. Janssens. The project is connected to the NWO Vidi-grant "Cohomology and representation theory of infinite dimensional Lie groups".

We are looking for an excellent student, who has recently obtained (or is about to obtain) an MSc (or equivalent) in Mathematics or a related field. It will be considered an advantage if you have experience in one or more of the following subjects: differential geometry, homological algebra, representation theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras, functional analysis (unbounded operators).
