The Doctoral Program (DK, in short for the German name Doktoratskolleg) “Computational Mathematics” (W1214) is a special effort of five institutes (four of the Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU) and one (RICAM) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences). The general goal is combined PhD education in numerical analysis and symbolic computation. Currently the DK is granted by the Austrian Science Funds (FWF) for a duration of three years, with a prospect of prolongation for another nine years. It officially starts on October 1, 2008. The director is Prof. Dr. Peter Paule (RISC).
The participating institutes are:
- Institute of Applied Geometry (Geo)
- Institute of Computational Mathematics (NuMa)
- Industrial Mathematics Institute (IndMath)
- Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC)
- Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM)
We offer nine annual employment contracts for PhD students for the maximum duration of three years. The first year of employment will be a probationary year. A DK contract guarantees a monthly gross salary of EUR 1,877.- (net salary: approx. 1,345.-) for full employment and a social and health insurance at the Austrian insurance agency for public employees (BVA).
Depending on the project, your place of work will either be the Science Park in Linz, directly on the University campus, or the castle of Hagenberg. There are students’ accommodations near both places.
