Research AreaTopicProfessorDescriptionDate
Arithmetic GeometryApplications of p-adic/motivic integration to problems in geometryProf. Dimitri WyssThe chair of arithmetic geometry advertises a 4-year PhD position at the intersection of number theory, algebraic geometry and representation theory. For an overview of our recent research activities visit https://www.epfl.ch/labs/arg/
The project is founded by the SNF Grant “Arithmetic aspects of moduli spaces on curves”.
Algebraic GeometryProblems around the classification theory of algebraic varieties Prof. Zsolt PatakfalviThe candidate is expected to learn and then conduct research in a research area connected to the classification theory of algebraic varieties ( https://www.epfl.ch/labs/cag/classification-theory-of-algebraic-varieties/ )
