Type of Position
PhD - Doctoral Programme
Field of Research
Mathematics / Natural Sciences
Description The Department of Mathematics in The University of
Göttingen, Germany, pursues cutting-edge research in mathematics including
excellent and manifold opportunities for pursuing doctoral studies. PhD
Students are integrated into the international and inspiring environment of
the department. The spectrum of possible PhD research topics ranges from pure
over applied mathematics to mathematical statistics. PhD projects may also be
interdisciplinary, with close connections to other disciplines, such as
mathematical physics or mathematical foundations of data science.
The PhD programme in Mathematical Sciences focuses on high-level research in
mathematics. It features intensive training and cutting-edge research projects
in pure and applied mathematics, emphasising independent research on the part
of the students. A list of research areas is available here:
- https: // www. math.uni-goettingen.de/forschung/indexen.html
- https: // www. uni-goettingen.de/en/607643.html
- https: // www. uni-goettingen.de/en/628437.html
Applicants are required to include in their letter of motivation the area of
research where they would like to pursue their doctoral studies.
As part of its structured doctoral programme, the Department of Mathematics
provides training in the core competences of research methods, content-related
expertise and interdisciplinary research skills; furthermore, it places the
emphasis on competences which give its doctoral candidates a competitive edge
across research areas and occupational fields as well as those that enhance
their ability to assume executive functions.
The PhD programme in Mathematical Sciences is designed as a structured
academic programme for graduates whose academic profile and outstanding
interdisciplinary research proposals set them apart from the rest.
Consequently, selection is based solely on the applicants' qualification.
The successful candidates are expected to hold an excellent master's degree
that formally qualifies them for doctoral studies. In their previous studies,
candidates are expected to have acquired relevant discipline-specific and
methodological knowledge in their field of expertise that enables them to
successfully complete their research project. Beyond the formal
qualifications, seeing a research project through from beginning to end
requires a great deal of dedication, the ability to deal with conflicts, self-
management skills, the ability to think and act strategically, self-
motivation, well-developed communication skills and the ability to work
together with others.
