Modeling – Analysis – Optimization of discrete, continuous, and stochastic systems
is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and by the University of Klagenfurt.
The doctoral school is embedded into the well-established doctoral program in mathematics, but provides a special structure and a clearly defined research goal.
In our research we aim for solving mathematical problems by creating synergies from a multi-perspective view, combining the knowledge of several mathematical sub-disciplines.
In order to guarantee optimal guidance for this, every PhD student has a supervisor and a co-supervisor from the faculty as well as an international expert as a mentor, who will host the students international research stay.
The doctoral school and the doctoral program in mathematics provide a vivid, friendly, and research-oriented environment for PhD students from all over the world.
In the application phase, potential candidates submit their curriculum vitae, an abstract of max. ½ page (including a statement of interest in multi-perspective research combining different mathematical sub-disciplines and a statement indicating which of the research areas of the doctoral school would be preferred for the PhD), list of courses taken so far and grade report, title/topic of Master’s thesis, Master’s thesis if available. If an applicant has not received the Master’s degree by the application deadline, the applicant should provide a declaration, written either by a supervising professor or by the candidate themself, on the feasibility of finishing the Master’s by August 14, 2021 at the latest.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for a hearing to Klagenfurt. Travelling costs will be covered.
The starting date is negotiable, September 2021 at latest, preferably October 2020.
Successful candidates will be employed by the university for 30 hours per week and initially get a 3 years contract with the possibility of a prolongation by up to 12 months.
participation in at least one (internal or external) summer school and in at least two status seminars
if there are less than two positively reviewed papers in international refereed journals or conference proceedings, then in addition to the two positive international reviews of the thesis, there must be two preprints on arXiv.org, which the supervisor and the co-supervisor declare publishable
research stay abroad (this condition may be relaxed for those PhD students who have strong personal obstacles such as maternity).
