Supporting Early Careers

© MM/Peter Leßmann

In line with our tradition, we aim to further develop high-level master's, PhD and postgraduate programmes that attract and educate the very best students in mathematics. We provide a stimulating research environment with active career development and guidance to foster early scientific independence and promote both excellent mathematical research and fruitful academic careers.

For us, combining family and career and promoting gender equality and diversity is as important as providing individual support and guidance beyond mathematical skills. Individual consultation and career development, e.g. from the Graduate Centre or the Dual Career Service, is offered in cooperation with the University of Münster.

Master's Studies in Münster

The University of Münster is a stronghold of mathematical research and education. As a master's student in Münster, you will not only benefit from a broad mathematical training but you will also be introduced to ongoing research.

You can choose focus topics out of seven mathematical fields: geometry and analysis of manifolds, topology, operator algebras and non-commutative geometry, algebra, applied mathematics and scientific computing, probability theory and applications, mathematical logic.

International Affairs

Spending a semester abroad as a Master's student? Have a look at the homepage of the department for existing cooperations with our Erasmus partner universities in Europe. The Fachschaft Mathematik und Informatik [de] (students representatives) informs regularly about possibilies of spending a semster abroad.

As a doctoral student you can also take advantage of the Erasmus+ or the Promos programme of the DAAD. Or write your own proposal to receive funding for a conference you'd like to participate in or for spending a short or longer research visit at an international university or research institute.

The International Office of the WWU advises students, academics and staff who are planning a stay abroad or, vice-versa, who are planning a visit at the University of Münster. It also welcomes and supports visiting researchers and international students.
