About the Department of Mathematics
The department has 45 permanent scientific staff members; around 50 PhD students and 25 postdocs. It has strong research groups in many areas of mathematics, and active PhD, postdoc, and visitor's programs. Our building is located in central Copenhagen next to the central park Fælledparken. You can find more information about the department on its homepage http://www.math.ku.dk/english
Further information about working at Copenhagen University can also be obtained from http://ism.ku.dk/
All PhD students at the department will be affiliated with one of our six research groups: Algebra and Number Theory, Geometric Analysis and Mathematical Physics, Mathematical and Statistical Methods in Insurance and Economics, Non-commutative Geometry, Statistics and Probability Theory, or Topology. You can find description of each of these groups at the Department research homepage.
There will be a limited number of free PhD stipends in all areas of mathematics not attached to specific project. You are welcome to contact any member of the department to discuss specific research projects.
In addition, there will be PhD stipends available in:
- Algebra, topology, operator algebras and non-commutative geometry as covered by the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation
- Mathematical physics and quantum information theory within the Centre for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory (QMATH)
The next ordinary PhD call will have application deadline April 1st, 2018.
