PhD studies at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Mathematics (CIM)

CIM's PhD programme is aimed at those who want to conduct an interdisciplinary mathematical research project. During the programme, you will gain a unique ability to use mathematical models. The education consists of a combination of courses, seminar series and research projects.


We advertise PhD positions once a year (usually in early spring). A link to proposed projects is usually available in the announcement.

Vacant positions at the Department of Mathematics


PhD students within CIM can belong to any department within the university, as long as they have a stable mathematical foundation and interest in mathematical sciences.
