I have an opening for a PhD position funded by the Simons Collaboration on Special Holonomy in Geometry, Analysis, and Physics with a starting date of 1 April 2021 (or later). I am looking for a candidate with a strong background in differential geometry, Riemannian geometry, and analysis; moreover, preferably, good knowledge of the foundations of gauge theory and/or the theory of pseudo-holomorphic curves.

HU Berlin is an exciting research environment, with Klaus Mohnke's and Chris Wendl's groups also working on these or closely related areas. In non-pandemic conditions the whole collaboration (which the PhD student will be part of) holds regular meetings in New York, London, and other places. At the moment those take place online. At these meetings the PhD student will have the opportunity to interact with the other PIs of thee collaboration.

If this sounds interesting to you, please, get in touch. If you know any potential candidates, please, pass this information along. Here is the official posting in English (and in German).
