Functieomschrijving

The Department of Mathematics at Radboud University (Nijmegen, Netherlands) is seeking an outstanding, highly motivated PhD candidate to work on a project called `Matrix-valued Special Functions and Applications in Physics’. The project concerns the area of analysis, more particularly special functions, with applications in physics. The project is funded by Radboud University and KU Leuven; you will work at each of these two universities for two years. The project is part of a larger programme strengthening the ties between Radboud University and KU Leuven and is supervised by Prof. Erik Koelink (Radboud University) and Prof. Walter Van Assche (KU Leuven).

Upon successful completion, you will be awarded a PhD from both Radboud University and KU Leuven. You will be encouraged to attend and contribute to international scientific meetings. You will have a light teaching load and, if necessary, you will be required to perform your teaching duties in English.

Functie-eisen

- you have an excellent background in mathematics and an interest in physics;
- you should hold an MSc in Mathematics, preferably with a strong component in physics, or expect to have obtained your MSc by the starting date;
- you may also apply if you hold an MSc in a related discipline with a very strong mathematical component;
- a background in analysis would be an advantage, but high mathematical maturity and motivation are of greater importance;
- proficiency in English is essential.

Conditions

you will be appointed for an initial period of 18 months, after which your performance will be evaluated. If the evaluation is positive, the contract will be extended by 2.5 years
- you will be classified as a PhD candidate in the Dutch university job-ranking system (UFO)
the gross starting salary amounts to €2,222 per month, and will increase to €2,840 in the fourth year
The appointment will be for two years at Radboud University, followed by two years at KU Leuven.

Bedrijfsomschrijving

Strategically located in Europe, Radboud University is one of the leading academic communities in the Netherlands. A place with a personal touch, where top-flight education and research take place on a beautiful green campus in modern buildings with state-of-art facilities. Faculty of Science You will be based at the Department of Mathematics at Radboud University during the first two years. The Department of Mathematics is part of the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP). IMAPP has a friendly and open atmosphere, and a strong expertise in mathematical physics and analysis. This year, for the third time in the past five years, our mathematics programme received the highest undergraduate student ratings in a national student survey.

You will be based at the Department of Mathematics at KU Leuven during the last two years of the project. The Department of Mathematics is part of the Faculty of Sciences at KU Leuven. You will work in the Section of Analysis, which has two research groups, one in Classical Analysis (CA) and one in Functional Analysis (FA), with many national and international researchers at the graduate and postdoctoral levels.
