We are offering a PhD position in Mathematics, in connection with the NWO Vidi-grant "Cohomology and representation theory of infinite dimensional Lie groups". The daily supervisor will be B. Janssens. Possible directions of research are:
• Unitary representations of infinite dimensional Lie groups of a geometric origin.
• Lie algebra cohomology for infinite dimensional Lie algebras of a geometric origin.


You are an excellent student, who recently obtained (or is about to obtain) a Master's degree in Mathematics or a related field. It will be considered an advantage if you have experience in one or more of the following subjects: differential geometry, homological algebra, representation theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras, functional analysis (unbounded operators).


The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School. The TU Delft Graduate School provides an inspiring research environment; an excellent team of supervisors, academic staff and a mentor; and a Doctoral Education Programme aimed at developing your transferable, discipline-related and research skills.

Technische Universiteit Delft


Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools. Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science Research at the Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) centres around the analysis of mathematical models arising in science and engineering. This research is both fundamental and applied in nature. The department plays an active role in translating research results into concrete, practical applications. It maintains intensive contacts with other TU Delft departments, the major technological institutes and the research laboratories of major companies. Within its own subject field, the department provides teaching for the Applied Mathematics BSc and MSc programmes and also contributes to the teaching of mathematics courses within other academic programmes at the TU Delft as well as within national programmes such as “MasterMath”.

The Analysis group is one of the key research groups at DIAM. Internationally, the group has a longstanding tradition of excellence in the areas of functional analysis, partial differential equations, and stochastic analysis. The current project is part of a new line of research in the direction of differential geometry and functional analysis.
