PhD Positions at the Center for Interdisciplinary Mathematics, Uppsala University


The Center for Interdisciplinary Mathematics (CIM) at Uppsala University conducts interdisciplinary research between the mathematical sciences and other areas of science and industry. CIM offers training and expertise in mathematical modeling and computer simulation, see We are now looking for up to three PhD students to work within the center. These PhD students will join CIM's graduate school in interdisciplinary mathematics, which started in 2011.

Eligibility: The candidates are expected to have an interest in applied mathematics and/or using models in an interdisciplinary context. A PhD student position requires a Master of Science in a field that is relevant for conducting research in applied mathematics, e.g., mathematics, engineering physics or scientific computing. Candidates with a background in another area of science, e.g. chemistry or biology, with a strong competence and interest in mathematical modeling are also encouraged to apply.

Application: The application should include a short description of research interests. The application should also include Curriculum Vitae (CV), copies of diplomas and certificates, a copy of master´s degree dissertation.The position is for a maximum of five years and includes departmental duties at a level of at most 20% (typically teaching).
