Six-years PhD position at TU Delft

The Institute of Applied Mathematics at TU Delft invites applications for a

Six-year PhD position in Applied Probability and Mathematical Physics.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate to work on the project “Statistical mechanics problems on random graphs” in a joint collaboration under the supervision of Dr. J.L.A. Dubbeldam, Associate professor in the Mathematical Physics group and Dr. E. Pulvirenti, Assistant professor in the Applied Probability group of Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM).

The research work for the future PhD candidate focuses on metastability for spins models on random graphs, both from the perspective of theoretical probability and numerical simulations.
In addition to the research work, the student is expected to teach (40% of the work load). This position is meant for a candidate who also wants to acquire teaching skills and contribute to the educational program of TU Delft. Therefore the position is for 6 years.
