This vacancy concerns a 4-year PhD position in operator algebras under the supervision of Martijn Caspers at TU Delft. You will be working on a topic which within the area of operator algebras (especially von Neumann algebras) with connections to quantum probability. The aim is to demonstrate that tools form quantum probability and harmonic analysis can be used to describe structural and "rigidity" properties of von Neumann algebras. During the PhD project you will (mildly) be involved in teaching activities and further research activities of the Analysis group. The candidate must be appointed before September 1, 2021.

You will be working within the Analysis group of DIAM (the TU Delft mathematics faculty). Our group consists of researchers in several parts of functional analysis including operator theory, quantum groups, stochastic analysis, analysis of PDE's, special functions and representation theory. Our group typically hosts 5-8 PhD students and provides a vivid work environment including seminars, several guest
