[DMANET] PhD positions at university of Osnabrueck

The DFG Research Training Group "Combinatorial Structures in Geometry"
at the University of Osnabrueck invites applications for

7*positions for PhD candidates and *

*1 postdoctoral position.
The starting date for these positions is October 1st, 2016. All
positions are
within the TV-L E13 German public sector pay scale. The PhD positions

offered at
a 100% base and the contracts are given for 1 ½ years and are planned
to be extended to 2 years.

The central research idea behind the Graduate School concerns the
interaction of combinatorics and geometry, and collaborations between
researchers from different disciplines, such as commutative algebra,
combinatorial optimization, harmonic analysis, homotopy theory,
K-theory, and stochastic geometry. For further information we refer to

Applicants for the PhD positions should hold an excellent master/diploma
degree in mathematics or computer science. Good English language skills
are mandatory. Requirements for the postdoctoral positions are an excellent
PhD in one of the mentioned areas.

The University of Osnabrueck aims at increasing the proportion of female
employees in the involved departments substantially. Therefore applications
from women are particularly welcome, and will be treated with preference
subject to equal qualification. The same applies to qualified disabled

Applications should include the relevant documents (curriculum vitae,
list of publications if available, certificates of academic
qualifications), a
reference letter written by a professor and an accompanying statement
mentioning one or several research projects the applicant wants to work on


Applications should be sent via email in PDF format to
Prof. Dr. Matthias Reitzner:, by May 19th, 2016.
