PhD position in theoretical probability

The Institute of Applied Mathematics at TU Delft invites applicants for a PhD position in Mathematics (theoretical probability) employed full-time.

The research work lies in the intersection of the area of theoretical probability, analysis and distribution theory. The PhD project aims at understanding a long-standing question in analysis and probability, namely how to define functions of (random) distributions. In particular, we will construct functions of random distribution using suitable discrete models and we plan to investigate scaling limits of certain quantities of physical systems in different geometries as well.

This project is a joint collaboration between Dr Cipriani from the Department of Applied Mathematics at TU Delft and Dr Ruszel from the Mathematics Institute of Utrecht University. For information about the position contact A. Cipriani at
