PhD Scholarship Position in Geometric Analysis and Applications to Microbe Ecology

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position in mathematical physics at Chalmers University of Technology. The funds for this fellowship are available for four years. Candidates are welcome before March 17, 2019.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg has about 200 employees, and is the largest department of mathematics in Sweden. The department has three scientific divisions, Algebra and Geometry, Analysis and Probability Theory, and Applied Mathematics and Statistics, and conducts successful research in pure and applied mathematics and mathematical statistics.

We are located in a modern building at the center of Chalmers campus. More information about us can be found on our website:

At the Department of Mathematical Sciences there are many internationally successful researchers in a wide variety of research areas. The division Analysis and Probability Theory conduct research in areas such as harmonic analysis and partial differential equations, mathematical physics, probability and discrete mathematics, functional analysis, and kinetic theory. We are looking for one doctoral students to work in Geometric analysis and applications to microbe ecology (with supervisor Julie Rowlett), see

Major responsibilities

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.

Full-time temporary employment. The employment is limited to a maximum of four years with a possibility for an additional year for carried out departmental duties.


Applicants must have a strong background in mathematics. They must have obtained a master’s degree or a 4-year bachelor’s degree, or expect to complete that degree by August 15, 2019.

You should include all relevant work such as bachelor’s or master’s thesis and articles (provide an English summary if necessary) that you have authored or co-authored. Evidence of mathematical problem solving skills is significant, besides course grades.

The bachelor’s level teaching is normally in Swedish, although the teaching at the master’s and PhD levels is in English. Thus, good language skills are required.

Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the dynamic city ofGothenburg.
