The DFG Research Training Group “Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces” (RTG 2229) is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and jointly run by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Heidelberg University. Its research focus is the systematic study of geometric spaces with regard to their asymptotic invariants and their behavior under deformations, degenerations, and taking limits. It provides a structured framework for a cross-boundary PhD training in geometry.


For the research period commencing in October 2023, we invite applications for


several PhD positions (75%)


to be based at the KIT.

Payment is according to the wage agreement of the civil service TV-L of salary level E13. The maximal duration for funding is 3 years.


PhD students will benefit from a variety of qualification programs including advanced and tailor-made courses on the topics of the RTG. An intensive visitor's program, frequent workshops and PhD schools will contribute to a vibrant scientific environment. In addition, we offer professional skills modules.


We are seeking PhD applicants with an excellent master degree (or equivalent) in mathematics or theoretical physics. Applicants should show a high engagement and have a strong theoretical background in one of the research topics of the RTG.


KIT strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment. We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply for these positions. With appropriate qualifications, applications from persons with handicaps will be treated with preference.


Applications for positions starting on October 1st 2023 should be received by 22nd June 2023; however, positions will remain open until suitable candidates have been identified.
