Funded PhD places in Geometry in London

The London School of Geometry and Number Theory (LSGNT) 
is now considering applications for a 4-year Ph.D. program in 2014/2015. This is joint venture between Imperial College London, King’s College London and University College London. Our students share a common first year of specially tailored courses and mini research projects; later then they select an advisor (the potential advisors are listed in the link below).

We expect to admit approximately 15 students this year, with around 10 expected to be in Geometry (broadly construed) and we welcome applications from students with interest in Analysis and Geometry.

We are therefore looking for bright and highly motivated students from around the world. They can apply at The initial deadline for applications is 8 December 2014.

LSGNT will also consider applications from highly-qualified students with funding available from their home countries.

Warwick postdoc positions in geometric analysis

The Warwick Mathematics Institut (UK) is currently inviting applications for 12 month and 24 month postdoctoral positions in geometric analysis, hosted by Peter Topping.
The positions are within a larger research consortium including also Andre Neves (Imperial) and Mihalis Dafermos (Cambridge, Princeton), funded by EPSRC.
The proposed start date is 1 September 2015, although this is flexible (earlier or later).
The 12 month position is primarily intended for candidates wishing to delay an offer from elsewhere while they visit Warwick for 1 year.
Candidates should have experience of, and strong research potential in, some of the following areas: Geometric analysis, geometric flows, nonlinear partial differential equations, and differential geometry.
The main duties of the position will be research, and the development of our geometric analysis group. There will be at most a light teaching load.
** Closing date: 8 December 2014 **

Open ESR position (MAnET)

Call for applications for an ESR (Early Stage Researcher) position:

Applications are invited for a full-time ERS position (leading to a PhD degree) at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Helsinki, within the Marie Curie ITN project MAnET.

Duration: 36 months
Starting date: September 2014

Living allowance + mobility allowance:
According to the MC-ITN rules the basis for calculating the gross monthly living allowance of the recruited Early Stage Researcher is 38.000 €/year as a living allowance, plus a mobility allowance 700/1000 €/month (depending on the family status). These amounts include overheads and are subject to the applicable country correction coefficient to adjust to the cost of living of the country where the project is carried out. [In Finland this means about 3550 €/month minus taxes for an unmarried fellow.]

Mobility requirements:  According to the regulations for mobility within the Marie Curie program, at the time of recruitment by the host organization, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.

For all recruitments, the eligibility of the researcher will be determined at the time of recruitment and the status of the researcher will not evolve over the life-time of a contract.

Academic requirements: Master’s degree and less that 4 years (full-time) research experience after Master’s degree.

Main research fields:  Differential geometry, Geometric measure theory, PDEs, in particular, Minimal Surfaces. The recruited fellow will prepare his/her PhD thesis on

Minimal surfaces on Cartan-Hadamard manifolds and/or sub-Riemannian manifolds

under supervision of Ilkka Holopainen. The specific topic of the thesis will be decided in accordance with the scientific background of the fellow.  The fellow will actively participate in all events organized by the network.

Deadline for applications: May 31, 2014.

How to apply:

Please, fill in the following on-line application form

and send by e-mail (To: ,  Subject: “Application to ESR position” ) the following documents:

– Curriculum Vitae, with list of publications (pdf-file)
– Pdf copy of your identity document (with photo)
– Short presentation letter (max. 3 pages) including research interests, a description of your Master’s thesis,
knowledge and possible research experience on differential geometry, geometric measure theory, minimal surfaces.
– Names and e-mail addresses of 2 reference persons who are willing to write recommendation letters upon request.

The selected fellow is asked to consult the following general criteria for postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Science at the University of Helsinki.
