Your re­search pro­jects will com­prise all aspects of ap­plied mathem­at­ics, from model devel­op­ment and mathem­at­ical ana­lysis to nu­mer­ical im­ple­ment­a­tion and stat­ist­ical es­tim­a­tion of mod­els.

Moreover, you will have teach­ing and su­per­vi­sion du­ties at the un­der­gradu­ate Ievel (2hrs of teach­ing per week).

Your Pro­file:

MSc or dip­loma in ap­plied mathem­at­ics or, al­tern­at­ively, an MSc in either quant­it­at­ive fin­ance, quant­it­at­ive eco­nom­ics, or stat­ist­ics, with a strong mathem­at­ical back­ground

  • Very good back­ground in stochastics (prob­ab­il­ity the­ory and stat­ist­ics)

  • A strong mo­tiv­a­tion for aca­demic re­search

  • Good Eng­lish as well as good pro­gram­ming skills

  • Ped­a­go­cical and present­a­tion skills

Ger­man lan­guage skills are not a pre­requis­ite. Some prior back­ground in eco­nom­ics or fin­ance is an ad­vant­age.
