PhD Position

Phd Position

The NonSper project is a ANR-Fapesp PRCI project that will run from 2024 to 2028. The project is offering a three-year PhD position that will begin in September 2024.

The PhD will be jointly supervised by researchers in France and Brazil, with the possibility of earning a double doctoral degree.

The research will primarily be conducted in France, but the project will also fund at least three one-month stays in Brazil to facilitate international collaboration and expand the researcher’s exposure to diverse research environments.

List of possible PhD topics includes:

  • qualitative theory of non-smooth dynamical systems
  • singular perturbations
  • singularities of differential equations
  • resolution of singularities

To apply, you must hold a Master’s degree in mathematics and have strong academic credentials. Completion of some intermediate or advanced course in differential equations is also required. Proficiency in French or Portuguese is not a prerequisite.
