The Department of Mathematics is seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate for a research position funded by the NWO ENW-M project ‘Higher Invariants of Finite-Volume Spaces’. This project is about developing and applying new invariants of certain non-compact manifolds which have finite volume. It falls in the broad area of analysis and geometry on manifolds. There are links with index theory, Lie group theory and operator algebras.

The PhD project will be supervised by Dr Peter Hochs. We will support you throughout the PhD process to engage in research, participate in local, national and international meetings, and report on your results in scientific publications. You should ideally be available to start the PhD project between 1 September and 1 November 2024. Other starting dates are negotiable, but the earlier the better. This position has a light teaching load, of up to 10% of your working time. Upon successful completion, you will be awarded a PhD from Radboud University.

We welcome applications from candidates with an excellent academic track record and demonstrable experience in at least one of the areas mentioned above. Members from groups that are underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics disciplines are particularly encouraged to apply.

Profile

  • You hold a Master's degree in Mathematics, or you are on track to obtain one before the start of the project.
  • You have experience in one or more areas relevant to this position, as evidenced by courses followed and your Master's thesis.
  • You have excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • You are a highly motivated, enthusiastic, critical, organised, creative and proactive individual.
  • You work well in a team as well as independently.

We are

The Department of Mathematics at Radboud University (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) is part of the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics of the Faculty of Science. The department represents a broad range of areas, including pure and applied analysis, differential geometry, algebraic geometry and topology, number theory, functional analysis, mathematical physics, non-commutative geometry, special functions and applied stochastics.

The Department of Mathematics has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. There are regular research seminars, a range of specialist lectures and visitors to the department, as well as a number of informal events throughout the year. There are currently about 25 PhD candidates in the department, several of whom work in areas related to this project. This project meshes with the interests of a broader community of mathematicians in the Netherlands working in related areas, with which we regularly organise seminars and other events.

Radboud University

At Radboud University, we aim to make an impact through our work. We achieve this by conducting groundbreaking research, providing high-quality education, offering excellent support, and fostering collaborations within and outside the university. In doing so, we contribute indispensably to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. To accomplish this, we need even more colleagues who, based on their expertise, are willing to search for answers. We advocate for an inclusive community and welcome employees with diverse backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives. Will you also contribute to making the world a little better? You have a part to play.

Faculty of Science

The Faculty of Science (FNWI), part of Radboud University, engages in groundbreaking research and excellent education. In doing so, we push the boundaries of scientific knowledge and pass that knowledge on to the next generation.

We seek solutions to major societal challenges, such as cybercrime and climate change and work on major scientific challenges, such as those in the quantum world. At the same time, we prepare our students for careers both within and outside the scientific field.

Currently, more than 1,300 colleagues contribute to research and education, some as researchers and lecturers, others as technical and administrative support officers. The faculty has a strong international character with staff from more than 70 countries. Together, we work in an informal, accessible and welcoming environment, with attention and space for personal and professional development for all.

We offer

  • We will give you a temporary employment contract (1.0 FTE) of 1,5 years, after which your performance will be evaluated. If the evaluation is positive, your contract will be extended by 2.5 years (4-year contract).
  • You will receive a starting salary of €2,770 gross per month based on a 38-hour working week, which will increase to €3,539 in the fourth year (salary scale P).
  • You will receive an 8% holiday allowance and an 8,3% end-of-year bonus.
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Support Service. The Dual Career Programme assists your partner via support, tools, and resources to improve their chances of independently finding employment in the Netherlands. Our Family Support Service helps you and your partner feel welcome and at home by providing customised assistance in navigating local facilities, schools, and amenities. Also take a look at our support for international staff page to discover all our services for international employees.
  • You will receive extra days off. With full-time employment, you can choose between 30 or 41 days of annual leave instead of the statutory 20.

Additional employment conditions

Work and science require good employment practices. Radboud University's primary and secondary employment conditions reflect this. You can make arrangements for the best possible work-life balance with flexible working hours, various leave arrangements and working from home. You are also able to compose part of your employment conditions yourself. For example, exchange income for extra leave days and receive a reimbursement for your sports membership. And, of course, we offer a good pension plan. We also give you plenty of room and responsibility to develop your talents and realise your ambitions. Therefore, we provide various training and development schemes.
