created by tewodrose on 03 May 2023

Deadline: 23 jun 2023

The Department of Mathematics and Data Science of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium) invites applications for two PhD positions in Mathematics.

The PhD projects will be supervised by David Tewodrose. They fall in the framework of the Odysseus programme “Geometric and analytic properties of metric measure spaces with spectral curvature constraints, with applications to manifold learning”.

The research conducted will lie at the intersection of several research areas in modern geometric analysis, including analysis on metric spaces, computational Riemannian geometry, geometric measure theory and probability theory. The successful candidates will contribute to the vibrant research environment of the department and help creating new ties with the Department of Mathematics of the nearby Université Libre de Bruxelles.

The earliest possible starting date is November 1st, 2023. The duration is 4 years. The position comes with a competitive salary and a light teaching load in the form of assistantship for one course per semester. It also includes funding for traveling to international conferences and visiting collaborators worldwide.
