You can study advanced modern mathematics (both pure and applied) by enrolling in a research education programme that can lead to a licentiate thesis and/or a doctoral thesis in mathematics. This course of study involves intensive training of both mathematical and soft skills as well as working on your own research project.
After obtaining a doctoral degree, you have the possibility to pursue an academic career, to work within an R&D environment in the industry, or to start your own business.
To be employed as a doctoral student in mathematics, you must first be admitted to the research education programme at Karlstad University. A doctoral studentship lasts five years at most. The doctoral study programme takes four years. However, most doctoral students use 80% of their time for research education and 20% for teaching mathematics at the university level (or for performing other research or teaching-related tasks at the department).
We regularly search for new doctoral students. The available positions are always broadly advertised.
