Positions in the START Prize Project "Geometry of Stochastic Differential Equations"

We are looking for two Ph.D. students and two PostDocs in the area of Stochastic Analysis with possible applications to Mathematical Finance. Additional Interests in areas like Numerical Mathematics, Optimal Transport, non-linear PDEs or Differential Geometry are most welcome but not necessary.

We offer to work on the frontiers of mathematical research within the START project "Geometry of Stochastic Differential Equations". The START-project is headed by Prof. Josef Teichmann and embedded into a highly active and distinguished research group (Prof. Peter Grandits, Dr. Friedrich Hubalek, Dr. Reinhold Kainhofer, Dr. Johannes Leitner, Prof. Walter Schachermayer, Prof. Uwe Schmock).

There are no teaching duties associated with these positions. The start date is flexible and can be anytime in 2007, however, we plan to start soon as possible after January 1, 2007.
