at the Department of Mathematics. Closing date: 30 September 2019.
The last century of research has led the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University to acquire a prominent place in Scandinavian mathematics. The department consists of three divisions: Mathematics, Mathematical statistics, and the recently formed Computational mathematics. The research in the division of mathematics include algebra, geometry and combinatorics, analysis and logic. The research in mathematical statistics include probability theory and statistical inference theory, with applications in biostatistics, climatology, econometrics, finance and insurance. Computational mathematics is a new direction for the department, with activities in computational biology, stochastic modelling, scientific computing for climatology, and logic of programs.
Computational mathematics, focusing on Computer Science, for example analysis and development of algorithms, datastructures, and machine learning.
