The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) creates knowledge for a better world and solutions that can change everyday life.

Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (IE)

Department of Mathematical Sciences (IMF)

Two PhD positions in Analysis

Two new PhD fellowships in analysis are available at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at NTNU. The successful candidates will be offered three-year positions. The Department may offer a six to twelve month extension as a teaching assistant. The work place will be Trondheim.


About the research project


The positions are part of the project “Combinatorial methods in Mathematical analysis”, funded by The Research Council of Norway. The main topics of the project are harmonic analysis and its applications to partial differential equations, including discrete models, nonharmonic Fourier analysis and discrepancy theory, analysis of Dirichlet series and analytic number theory. The candidate is expected to conduct research in one of the areas of the project under the supervision of a permanent member of the analysis group participating in the project.




The applicant must have a master’s degree in mathematics or comparable competence, and must also satisfy the requirements for entering the PhD programme at NTNU; please see http://www.ntnu.edu/ie/research/phd.


The admission to PhD education at NTNU requires an average grade of A or B within a scale of A-E for passing grades (A best) for the last two years of the MSc, and C or higher for the BSc.

MSc students in their final year are also invited to apply. Employment will then be postponed until the master’s degree is finished.


The applicants who do not master a Scandinavian language must document a thorough knowledge of English (equivalent to a TOEFL score of 600 or more).


The application


The application must include the following:


  • CV which includes information about education background and work experience.

  • Certified copies of relevant transcripts and diplomas. Candidates from universities outside Norway are kindly requested to send a Diploma Supplement or similar documentation, which describes in detail the programme of study, the grading system, and the rights to further studies associated with the degree obtained.

  • A short research plan written together with at least one of the permanent members of the analysis group participating in the project (Bondarenko, Grepstad, Lyubarskii, Malinnikova, Seip)

  • Contact information for two references.

  • Documentation of fluency in the English language.


Applications are to be submitted electronically through this page. Preferably, the attachments should be submitted as a single pdf file.


Terms of employment


The positions adhere to the Norwegian Government’s policy of balanced ethnicity, age and gender. NTNU wishes to increase the number of women in its workforce, and female candidates are therefore encouraged to apply.


The appointment of the PhD fellows will be made according to Norwegian guidelines for universities and university colleges and to the general regulations regarding university employees. Applicants must agree to participate in organized doctoral study programs within the period of the appointment and have to be qualified for the PhD-study.


The PhD fellowship is placed in salary code 1017, with a gross salary of NOK 436 500 per year before tax. A pension contribution of 2% of the salary will be deducted as an obligatory premium to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund.
