PhD positions in Pure Mathematics

We are looking for motivated PhD candidates in the following areas of pure mathematics.

  • Algebraic geometry
  • Classical analysis
  • Differential geometry
  • Functional analysis


Special attention will be given to applicants motivated to build bridges between two or more of these areas. A more detailed description of the main research topics of the pure mathematics research groups at KU Leuven can be found here: ?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwis.kuleuven.be%2Fmethusalem-pure-math%2Fmethusalem-lines-of-research&module=jobs&id=2548" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://wis.kuleuven.be/methusalem-pure-math/methusalem-lines-of-research. All PhD candidates will have a limited amount of teaching duties. We strive to improve the gender balance in the pure mathematics research groups and encourage female candidates to apply.

Financed by the long term Methusalem funding, the KU Leuven research groups in pure mathematics collaborate within the research project "Classification, symmetries and singularities at the frontiers of algebra, analysis and geometry", encompassing the expertise of the different research groups involved and focusing on some of the most challenging problems in algebra, analysis and geometry. In this large scale research project that started in 2016, several PhD candidates and postdocs are employed. We organize colloquia, seminars and advanced courses. In this stimulating environment, all researchers are exposed to a broad spectrum of mathematical research with several collaboration opportunities.
