Associate Professor of Mathematics, Leiden University
The institute’s research is driven by the curiosity of its members and has many internal and external connections. It is fundamental but with an open eye for applications. With 45 staff members, 10 postdocs, and 55 PhD candidates (including 3 funded by CSC), it is one of the larger mathematical institutes in the Netherlands. The lively atmosphere is very informal, with everyone from first year students to full professors mingling on a first name basis.
In national evaluations, the institute’s research consistently receive the highest possible scores. The Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences has 22 members in Mathematics, 9 of which are affiliated to Leiden. This is more than 3.5 times the average number for the nine mathematical institutes in the Netherlands.
The research is clustered into four themes:
PhD projects can be started whenever there is a match between a candidate and an advisor and funding is available. Your own knowledge and interests can be part of determining such a project. It will become clear during an interview (or during several interviews) whether such a match can be found.
During the PhD Workshop China Dutch Virtual Event you can contact Dr. De Jeu via Skype (username marcel_de_jeu).
