In the framework of the *Initiativkolleg (IK) 1008-N: Differential Geometry
and Lie groups* ten positions are financed for mathematicians who prepare
a doctoral thesis in the general field of differential geometry and Lie
groups, with thesis advisor one of the members of the IK.
These positions are half-time assistent position (14.000
E/year) at the University of Vienna. Positions started October 1, 2006
and end September 30, 2009.

This group combines people interested in differential geometry, Lie groups, Lie algebras, nonlinear partial differential equations, nonlinear theory of generalized functions, singularities, and general relativity.

The call for applications is closed, all positions are filled.
