created by wenger on 20 Apr 2023

Deadline: 31 aug 2023

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, invites applications for a PhD position in Mathematics under the supervision of Professor Stefan Wenger.

The PhD thesis project is at the intersection of several research areas in modern analysis and geometry, including analysis on metric spaces, sub-Riemannian geometry, geometric measure theory and geometric group theory. It is part of a Swiss National Science foundation project studying fundamental questions related to uniformization problems in non-smooth spaces, mapping problems in sub-Riemannian geometry, and isoperimetric problems in groups using novel techniques from geometric analysis and geometric measure theory.

The successful candidate will contribute to the vibrant research environment of the department and will be integrated into the research groups in Geometric Analysis and Non-Smooth Geometry. The PhD position comes with a competitive salary and a light teaching load in the form of a teaching assistantship. A good command of English is required. Moreover, a certain degree of fluency in German or French after a period of adaptation is expected.
