Symplectic Structures in Geometry, Algebra and Dynamics 2021-24

The German Research Foundation has granted the funding of a Collaborative Research Centre / Transregio (CRC/TRR 191) on Symplectic Structures in Geometry, Algebra and Dynamics. This CRC is based at the universities of Bochum, Cologne and Heidelberg, and it includes mathematicians from Aachen University.

Within this CRC, 17 individual projects will be funded. The funding comprises: 12 full-time postdoctoral positions (pd) and 24 positions for doctoral students (ds).

Currently we have openings for 4 postdoctoral positions (pd) and 12 positions for doctoral students (ds). Payment is based on the German TVL-13 scale if terms and conditions under collective bargaining laws are fulfilled; Ph.D. students will be given 75% positions.

All candidates should specify the project(s) to which they apply.
