The earliest starting date would be June 2023. Candidates should possess a M.Sc. (or a similar degree) in Mathematics and should have a solid knowledge in Analysis of PDEs. In particular, knowledge about the Navier-Stokes equation, fluid mechanics, phase-field models or parabolic equations in general would be helpful but is not necessarily required.

The student will find a stimulating working atmosphere due to the thematic proximity to the "IntComSin" graduate school ( based in Regensburg and Erlangen.

Applicants should submit the following documents via mail to - A short CV including a brief statement of scientific interests. - Copies of certificates of academic qualifications. - A study track record. - A copy of a degree thesis. - One or two letters of recommendation (not necessary but would be appreciated).
