PhD position in the working group Biomathematics and Stochastics at the University of Greifswald, Germany
Where: University of Greifswald, Germany
What: PhD position
When: any time, the starting date is negotiable
I am searching for a highly motivated PhD student to join my Biomathematics and Stochastics group as soon as possible! The broad area of the PhD project will be graph theory with applications in mathematical phylogenetics, but the successful candidate is very welcome to discuss his or her own interests with me and help shape the project! If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, let's talk about the details!
Greifswald is an absolute hub for biomathematics, and we are doing basic research in the area of graph theory, combinatorics and stochastics applied to phylogenetics, e.g. to phylogenetic networks. Pre-knowledge in biomathematics might be helpful, but is not a must — however, a mathematical (or similar) degree is required; as well as a keen interest in discrete mathematics and stochastics!
The official job announcement is in German, but knowledge of the German language is not a mandatory pre-requisite. The starting date is negotiable. The position will be based here at the University of Greifswald in Germany, located directly at the Baltic Sea and very close to the famous islands Rügen and Usedom -- come and get your PhD in an area so beautiful that others go here on holidays :-) Greifswald University also has a lot to offer for PhD students beyond only thesis supervision. Come and join our graduate school or our mentoring program if you wish and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere in a small student town! Of course there is also funding for conference traveling etc.
The position is paid according to the German payment scheme TV-L 13 50%.
