Are you an aspiring researcher with an interest in harmonic analysis? Then you have a part to play as a PhD candidate. Join the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the department of Mathematics and help us conduct research in representation theory and special functions at the highest scientific level.
The Department of Mathematics at the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP) of Radboud University (Nijmegen, Netherlands) is seeking two outstanding and highly motivated PhD candidates to work on PhD projects that are part of the NWO-funded project "Vector Valued Orthogonal Polynomials and Multiplicity Free Induction : Deformations and Quantizations'.
As PhD candidates, you will work under the supervision of Prof. Erik Koelink and Dr Maarten van Pruijssen. The positions are funded for 4 years and have a light teaching load (10%).
You will be encouraged to participate in relevant conferences, workshops and seminars, and to communicate your results through publications in peer-reviewed journals.
Upon successful completion, you will be awarded a PhD degree from Radboud University. We particularly encourage applications from underrepresented groups.
Representation theory and special functions, or more generally harmonic analysis, is one of the research areas of the Department of Mathematics at IMAPP.
The department has a friendly and welcoming research atmosphere with researchers in related areas including mathematical physics, geometry, operator algebras, etc.
There is a good balance of senior and young staff, as well as of Dutch and international researchers, and there are regular research seminars as well as a number of informal events throughout the year.
Moreover, the researchers at Radboud University are members of the national research cluster Geometry and Quantum Theory (GQT) and regularly interact and meet for seminars and other events.
There are more than 20 PhD candidates conducting research at the Department of Mathematics. The PhD candidates are part of the Graduate School of the Department of Mathematics.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs.
Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all.
This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning.
You have a part to play!
5 years (4 year contract) or 3.5 years (5 year contract).
Additional employment conditionsWork and science require good employment practices. This is reflected in Radboud University's primary and secondary employment conditions.
You can make arrangements for the best possible work-life balance with flexible working hours, various leave arrangements and working from home.
You are also able to compose part of your employment conditions yourself, for example, exchange income for extra leave days and receive a reimbursement for your sports subscription.
And of course, we offer a good pension plan. You are given plenty of room and responsibility to develop your talents and realise your ambitions.
Therefore, we provide various training and development schemes.
