HGS MathComp - Where Methods Meet Applications

The Heidelberg Graduate School of Mathematical and Computational Methods for the Sciences (HGS MathComp) at Heidelberg University is the only graduate school in Germany to focus on the complex topic of Scientific Computing. Placed in a vibrating research environment, the school offers a uniquely structured interdisciplinary education for PhD students. The program enables students to pursue innovative PhD projects with a strong application-oriented focus anywhere from mathematics, physics and chemical engineering sciences to cultural heritage.

Members of HGS MathComp are top experts in their fields and work on projects that combine mathematical methodology with topical research issues. Individual mentoring and career-building programs ensure that graduates acquire all qualifications for top positions in industry and science.


Open PhD Positions

HGS MathComp has 18 open PhD positions in the general research areas of Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, and Life Sciences.
