Job opportunities

First Funding Period : 07/2021 – 06/2025

Within this CRC funding is provided for the CRC-projects described on our website. The funding comprises postdoctoral positions (PDoc) and positions for doctoral students (PhD). Payment is based on the German TVL-13 scale if terms and conditions under collective bargaining laws are fulfilled.

For the postdoctoral positions we are seeking candidates holding a very good PhD in one of the areas relevant to the particular project. For the doctoral student positions we are seeking highly qualified candidates holding an MSc. or equivalent degree with a background suitable for one of the projects.

The CRC provides an excellent infrastructure for training and research in an internationally visible network. We offer support for international students and postdocs. The positions will be based at the universities of the project leader(s) of the relevant projects. Many of the projects are based at more than one university.

  • Goethe-Universität Frankfurt
  • Technische Universität Darmstadt
  • Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg

associated institutions

  • Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität Mainz
  • Technische Universität München

Applications will be considered until all positions are filled.

How to apply

Qualified candidates are invited to submit their application with the usual documents in German or English (in one .pdf file, max. 5 MB) and including the following:

  • cover letter
  • CV
  • name and address of two researchers in the field that we might ask for letters of reference
  • for PhD: you are asked to state your personal research interests and to name possible supervisors and CRC-projects
  • for PDoc: a list of publications, a research plan and indications of their preferred CRC-projects, supervisor and location

Applications should be sent electronically to the spokesperson of the SFB Transregio Jakob Stix at crc326gaus@math.uni-frankfurt.de and also directly to the relevant project leader.
