Interested candidates should have a background in one, or more, of the following areas:
  • nonlinear PDE
  • stochastic PDE


  • Deadline October 15, 2019. Note that late applications may be considered until the position is filled.
  • Please submit your documents (CV, list of publications, transcript of PhD certificate, research statement, contact data of referees) using our online application form and choose “Application MPI MiS” as option.
