2. one in discrete probability (, position at Chalmers

3. one in computational mathematics with a focus on analysis and implementation of advanced finite element methods (, position at Chalmers

4. one in applied mathematics with a focus on developing and analysing models for tumour growth ( , position at Chalmers

5. one in mathematical biology/systems biology ( , positions at the University of Gothenburg

6. for other (at most three) positions all research areas will be considered, positions at the University of Gothenburg

As a PhD student you will be part of an international research environment while you expand your knowledge of the field and write your thesis. This gives opportunities for many inspiring conversations, a lot of autonomous work and some travel. You are expected to develop your own ideas and communicate scientific results orally as well as in written form. In addition, the position will normally include 20 % departmental work, mostly teaching duties.
