Two PhD positions in Applied Algebra and Geometry Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), the Netherlands

We are pleased to invite applications for two PhD positions in Applied Algebra and Geometry at TU/e, the Netherlands.

The positions are financed by a Vici grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and includes an attractive budget for travelling and inviting guests. The successful applicants will be jointly supervised by Jan Draisma (from Bern) and Rob Eggermont (from Eindhoven) and will frequently visit, and be visited by, the Bern branch of the Vici team.

The topics will be determined together the successful applicants; possible areas include algebraic statistics, commutative algebra, polynomial optimisation, matroid theory, representation stability, and tropical geometry. The unifying theme is stabilisation as underlying combinatorial structures tend to infinity.

The application deadline is November 15, 2018, but later applications will be considered until a suitable candidate is found.

To apply, send a message to Rob Eggermont at r.h.eggermont(AT) with the following information:
