2 PhD positions in Mathematics at University of Augsburg

Applications are invited at the Institute for Mathematics of the University of Augsburg, Germany for

two Ph.D. positions (50%) in Symplectic Topology and Hamiltonian Dynamics

starting March 2018 or by agreement.

Both positions are 50% of a regular assistant positions and are fixed for three years. The salary is according to the German public service tarif scale E 13 TV-L.

However, teaching may be arranged at the request of the successful candidate. The research theme of this position is in the field of Hamiltonian dynamical systems and theoretical celestial mechanics and will be carried out under the supervisions of Dr. L. Zhao and Prof. U. Frauenfelder.

The other position carries light teaching load. The research theme is in the field of Hamiltonian Dynamics and Symplectic Topology and will be carried out primarily under the supervision of Prof. Kai Cieliebak.

The requirement for both positions is a Master degree in Mathematics and a good knowledge in analysis and geometry.
