PhD Fellowships in Stochastic Analysis

The RTG Stochastic analysis with applications in biology, finance and physics is offering several scholarships for graduate students in Berlin starting at the earliest possible date. Candidates should have obtained (or be about to obtain) a Diploma or M.Sc. degree in mathematics or closely related fields with results significantly above average, and intend to pursue graduate studies in mathematics within the research areas of the RTG. The RTG offers, besides the opportunity to do supervised research, a rich graduate programme consisting of graduate courses, seminars, guest lectures, and research stays abroad. Fellows are required to actively participate in this programme. The RTG is a certified unit of the Berlin wide graduate school of mathematics, BMS, funded in the framework of the German excellence program.

Scholarships are tax-free and carry a monthly stipend of up to €1468.- plus family allowance. They are initially awarded for two years, subject to renewal to up to 3 years. All graduate students will be expected to work for a Ph.D. degree at one of the participating universities in Berlin and Potsdam.

Applications should provide the usual documents:
letter of application
curriculum vitae
copies of certificates
Diplom/masters' thesis and relevant publications if available
statement of purpose sketching the applicants research interests
two letters of recommendation (to be sent directly to us)

The RTG particularly encourages the application of female candidates. Disabled persons will be given preferential treatment in cases of otherwise equal qualification.

Applications and inquiries should be addressed to:
Prof. Dr. Peter Imkeller, Coordinator, GRK 1845
Institut für Mathematik, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Unter den Linden 6, 10099 Berlin, Germany

preferably via e-mail to fiebig (at )
