The Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Umeå University, Sweden, is opening a PhD position in mathematics focused on combinatorial geometry. The position is for four years of doctoral studies which include both participation in research and postgraduate courses.

Combinatorial geometry is an area of mathematics that is concerned with the interplay between discrete structures and geometry. We are currently working with topics such as incidence geometries, graph covers, rigid graphs, graph embeddings and symmetries of discrete objects. It is common to apply computational tools in this type of mathematical research, making it highly beneficial (but not mandatory) for a candidate to have a background and/or interest in programming.

The position is intended to result in a doctoral degree and the main task of the PhD student is to pursue their doctoral studies which include both participation in research and postgraduate courses. The duties can include teaching and other departmental work (up to a maximum of 20%). The employment is limited to four years of full-time (48 months) or up to five years if teaching part-time. Salary is set in accordance with the established salary ladder for PhD position. The employment starts after the summer of 2020 or according to agreement.
