Application for the Ada Lovelace Fellowships (add-on PhD position)

Ada Lovelace Fellowships
(salary level E13 TV-L, 25 % add-on position)

Supplementary fellowships will be offered to exceptionally strong candidates in the PhD programme with the aim of increasing gender equality within the mathematical sciences. Fellowships must supplement a doctoral position and applications may be combined with the application for a 75% PhD position. Fellowship applications will also be accepted from current members of Mathematics Münster who hold a PhD position (max. 75%) or who are receiving a scholarship for their doctoral studies.

Applications should contain a cover letter, CV, copies of degree certificates and full academic transcripts. Applicants are invited to include examples of their academic work, if applicable. Suitability for the fellowship might be demonstrated through documentation of an appropriate gender equality concept.

Please arrange for a supporting statement from at least one of the investigators from Mathematics Münster. Statements should be sent directly to before 1 May 2020.

The evaluation for this application round will start on 1 May 2020.
