Applications are invited for a postdoc position in Financial Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute of University of Freiburg.
The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. and has an excellent profile in mathematical finance, stochastic processes or a related field. The research agenda will cover a wide range of challenging projects in financial mathematics as for example credit risk, stochastic portfolio optimization and incomplete information. We expect an interest for collaboration with the members of the Department of Mathematical Stochastics on interesting intersections between mathematical finance, biomathematics and economics.
The contract is for an initial time of one year, an extension is possible. Review of applications begins immediately. Ideally, candidates will be able to join us from 1st of April or 1st of May on.
For inquiries please contact Prof. Dr. Thorsten Schmidt (, from 1st of April at University of Freiburg). Please send your application in PDF format  (cover letter, CV, research statement) by email to Monika Hattenbach ( with subject „Post Doc in Financial Mathematics“.  Additionally, we ask for two letters of reference which should be sent directly to the same address.
