UNIVERSITY OF BERN (INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS AND ACTUARIAL SCIENCE)
PhD POSITION in STATISTICS
Funding from the SNF (Swiss National Science Foundation) is available for a PhD student to work on a project supervised by Dr. David Ginsbourger and Prof. Ilya Molchanov.
This project focuses on novel set estimation methods relying on random fields models. The research work will involve concepts and techniques from probability theory, spatial statistics, machine learning, and applied functional analysis.
School of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of St Andrews is looking to appoint a Regius Professor of Mathematics as a part of marking the University's 600th anniversary. This prestigious chair was established in 1668, and the first holder was James Gregory. The successful candidate will have expertise in an area of mathematical sciences, an internationally leading research reputation and a proven track record of academic leadership and engagement with students.

The large-scale integration of intermittent renewables (solar and wind) inside electricity networks presents a problem for the supply-demand balance and for the stability of the grid. The forecasting of the energy production from these renewables is investigated in order to solve these problems and to increase the rate of renewables in the grids. The challenge lays both on technical and economical aspects.
The PhD curriculum in Mathematics of Natural, Social and Life Sciences at Gran Sasso Science Institute will lead the students to deal not only with the more traditional aspects of this discipline, such as Pure Mathematics, Partial Differential Equations and Mathematical Physics, but also with entirely new problems, requiring the development of the most appropriate tools to deal with the complexity, such as stochastic analysis and computational mathematics.
The European PhD Program in Computational Logic (EPCL) is jointly offered by four leading European universities in the field: The Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (Italy), the Technische Universität Dresden (Germany, coordinator), the Technische Universität Wien (Austria) and the Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal). The program involves three years of PhD study in two of the partner universities and leads to a joint doctoral degree.
The upcoming application deadline is 30 April 2013. For more information, see http://www.epcl-study.eu/content/call/call.php
The Departments of Mathematics/Computer Sciences and Physics/Astronomy of Heidelberg University invite applications for a tenured Professorship (W3) in Mathematical Physics. This professorship has been established within the framework of the German Excellence Initiative, and it is to play a major role in connecting research in the two departments.
• Research in the field of applied mathematics with emphasis on the analysis and the numerics of problems in mathematical image processing and inverse problems
• Collaboration in the special research program „Mathematical Optimization and Applications in the Biomedical Sciences“ (http://math.uni-graz.at/mobis) and in interdisciplinary cooperation projects
• Independent teaching of courses in the field of applied mathematics, supervision of students and holding of exams
• Participation in organizational and administrative matters
One of the most desirable outcomes of polymer physics is creation of simple macroscopic equations which would describe flowing polymeric materials such as molten plastics. Traditionally, such equations were either derived analytically, which is only possible in extremely simple cases, or postulated from physical intuition and then checked and calibrated afterwards. If such equation failed, more terms and more adjustable parameters were added, making the process very subjective and arbitrary.
Two Professorships in Pure Mathematics
The Faculty of Science of the University of Basel invites applications for
two professorships (tenured or tenure track)
in pure mathematics
in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, starting 1st February 2014.
The successful candidates are expected to perform independent research work of high quality in pure mathematics, with a preference given to researchers working in areas related to algebra, geometry or number theory. A strong commitment to excellence in teaching and research is essential.
