The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1283 “Taming uncertainty and profiting from randomness and low regularity in analysis, stochastics and their applications” at the Bielefeld University has a job opening for a Ph.D. position in its  project C7.

The research in the project C7 focuses on model uncertainty in dynamic settings and the development of new solution concepts for a wide range of Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations appearing in the context of robust finance and optimal decision  problems under uncertainty. The project also focuses on numerical aspects and selected topics from actuarial science, stochastic optimal control, and mean field games.

The successful candidate is expected to have a scientific university degree in Mathematics, Mathematical Economics, Mathematical Finance or a related field and to have good knowledge in at least one of the following topics: measure and probability theory, stochastic  analysis, functional analysis, partial differential equations, and (stochastic) optimal control.

For full consideration, your application (including a cover letter, CV,  copies of diplomas, and, if available, a copy of the master’s thesis) should be sent via email  as a single PDF document to Please mark your application with the identification code: Wiss22273.
