PhD position in Calculus of Variations at Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Deepen your knowledge in the calculus of variations by working on cutting-edge projects in materials science, in particular on phase separation in heterogeneous media.

The project will be supervised by Riccardo Cristoferi and is funded by one of the 19 grants for innovative projects allocated by the Dutch Research Council in this year's open science competition.

The position includes funding for traveling to international conferences and visiting collaborators worldwide.

Check out the attractive employment conditions at Radboud University, and the surprising city of Nijmegen, 'the progressive city that few know' as the BBC called it in a recent article.

Your teaching duties will be restricted to 10% of the usual teaching load. This means you will only serve as a teaching assistant in Bachelor's and Master's degree courses during the first three years, leaving you free to complete your PhD in the last year.

The gross starting salary amounts to €2,541 per month based on a 38-hour working week, and will increase to €3,247 in the fourth year.
