Qualification Details

Applicants must have a strong background in mathematics. They must have obtained a master's degree or a 4-year bachelor's degree, or expect to complete that degree or by the time the employment starts. Experience in some of the following areas is meritorious: complex analysis, algebraic geometry. It is important that you mention in the application your specific research interests. You should also include all relevant work such as bachelor's or master's thesis and articles (provide an English summary if necessary) that you have authored or co-authored. Evidence of mathematical problem solving skills is significant, besides course grades. The bachelor's level teaching is normally in Swedish, although the teaching at the master's and PhD levels is in English. Thus, good language skills are required. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Responsibilities/Job Description

As a PhD student you will be part of an international research environment while you expand your knowledge of the field and write your thesis.
