12 PhD Positions in a new Research Training Group at Bielefeld University

We have the great pleasure to share information on a newly established research training group (RTG) „Coping with Uncertainty in Dynamic Economies“ with you. This research training group is sponsored by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for up to 9 years, with approximately one million euro per year.

In a first step, we will hire 12 doctoral students for four years of study. The positions are fully funded, at competitive levels (approx 40.000 Euro gross per year).

The RTG is an initiative of ten principal investigators from the Center for Mathematical Economics and the Data Science Research Group at Bielefeld University. Next to the well established core program of our doctoral school BiGSEM (, students will thus work in an excellent research environment on topics involving uncertainty in dynamic economies.

The research training group holds strong ties with top international researchers who will give specialized block courses and summer schools. As a highlight of our program, the Mercator fellow Jean-Marc Tallon from the Paris School of Economics is part of our research training group. He will serve as a contact person for possible research stays in Paris.

The program is located within economics; we do welcome applications by mathematicians, especially with a background in Stochastics and an interest to apply their knowledge in challenging topics in economics, finance, or data science.
