The Delft Institute for Applied Mathematics (DIAM) at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) invites applications for a full-time postdoc position in the field of mathematical analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs). The PhD candidate will be mentored by Dr. H. Yoldaş.
The research topics primarily revolves around PDEs stemming from structured population dynamics and kinetic theory. Examples of such equations include growth-fragmentation equations, run and tumble equations that model bacterial movement, and classical kinetic equations in gas theory, including the Boltzmann equation. For more insights into the research, please visit the Research & Publications of Dr. H. Yoldaş's webpage .
As a postdoctoral researcher, you will investigate the qualitative and quantitative aspects of these PDEs employing a diverse range of mathematical tools from PDE theory, functional analysis and probability theory. The specific research direction will be tailored to your background and interests, potentially encompassing topics such as well-posedness, long-term behavior analysis of PDEs, deriving PDEs from particle systems, and numerical analysis.
The appointment is for a duration of 1 year. The earliest possible starting date is January 1, 2024.
The successful candidate will focus on carrying out mathematical research. If requested by the candidate, there will be the possibility to teach (in English) but the teaching load shall be kept light. Communication will be in English. If desired by the candidate, there is the possiblity to take Dutch language courses offered by the Language Center for Languages and Academic Skills of TU Delft, see .
The candidate should:
- Hold a doctorate in mathematics or a closely related area or have a definite defence date before January 2024,
- Have a profound knowledge on the mathematical analysis of partial differential equations (and preferably probability theory and numerical analysis),
- Have eagerness to explore complex mathematical challenges,
- Have excellent proficiency in English both written and spoken,
- Be able to work both independently and collaboratively.
Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount on health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.
For international applicants, TU Delft has the Coming to Delft Service . This service provides information for new international employees to help you prepare the relocation and to settle in the Netherlands. The Coming to Delft Service offers a Dual Career Programme for partners and they organise events to expand your (social) network.

- A cover letter explaining the candidates scientific interests and why they connect to the topic of the project,
- The most recent CV,
- A publication list,
- Copies of academic transcripts,
- Two recommendation letters,
- The candidates bachelor's, master's and PhD theses (if available online, a link is sufficient).
You will be contacted by Dr. Yoldaş for an interview (via zoom) if you are among the leading candidates, in which case more specific information will be provided.
- A pre-employment screening can be part of the selection procedure.
- You can apply online. We will not process applications sent by email and/or post.
- Please do not contact us for unsolicited services.
