PhD stipends in Mathematics


A number of attractive PhD stipends in mathematics are available at Department of Mathematical Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen.

The starting date for the stipends is in September 2020 or earlier. Candidates are expected to have obtained a Master´s degree, or equivalence thereof, before starting. The stipends run for 3 years, which is the duration of the PhD program. You can find more information about the PhD program on the homepage http://www.math.ku.dk/english/programmes/ph.d/.

The PhD stipends include full tuition and a salary of approximately 3,350 EUR per month before taxes (DKK 300,174 per year) plus pension contributions of 17% of the salary (DKK 41,013 per year). Salary, pension and terms of employment are in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Academics Central organization.

All applicants entering the PhD program through this call will be affiliated with one of the two sections Geometric Analysis and Mathematical Physics or Topology, Functional Analysis and Algebra. You can find description of each of these sections at the Department research homepage.

There will be a limited number of free PhD stipends in all areas of mathematics not attached to specific projects. 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
  • geometric analysis: Riemannian geometry, PDEs and curvature flows, with Niels Martin Møller
  • mathematical physics and quantum information theory within the Centre for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory (QMATH)

Your application and all supporting documents must be submitted no later than 15th November 2019.
