Work­ing field:

The Ber­lin Math­em­at­ical School is the gradu­ate school of the Cluster of Excel­lence MATH+ ( and a joint endeavor of the math­em­at­ics depart­ments at the uni­versit­ies in Ber­lin: Freie Uni­versität (FU), Hum­boldt-Uni­versität (HU) and Tech­nis­che Uni­versität (TU).


We offer an excel­lent doc­toral pro­gram taught in Eng­lish in a broad and act­ive research envir­on­ment together with ment­or­ing pro­grams, lan­guage courses, soft-skills sem­inars, fund­ing for sum­mer schools and con­fer­ences, a buddy pro­gram and fund­ing for stu­dents with chil­dren.

What we of­fer:

“Math­em­at­ics as a whole“ is a lead­ing prin­ciple of the BMS. Its focus encom­passes fields that are tra­di­tion­ally termed “pure“ or “applied“ math­em­at­ics, though we prefer not to make that dis­tinc­tion. Instead, research top­ics are grouped into eight parts, each cov­er­ing a broad, but coher­ent, part of math­em­at­ics:

1. Dif­fer­en­tial geo­metry, global ana­lysis, and math­em­at­ical phys­ics
2. Algeb­raic and arith­metic geo­metry, num­ber the­ory
3. Stochastics and math­em­at­ical fin­ance
4. Dis­crete math­em­at­ics and optim­iz­a­tion
5. Geo­metry, topo­logy, and visu­al­iz­a­tion
6. Numer­ical ana­lysis and sci­entific com­put­ing
7. Applied ana­lysis and dif­fer­en­tial equa­tions
8. Math­em­at­ics of data sci­ence

How to ap­ply:

For applic­ants with a Bach­elor, Phase I offers a basic gradu­ate phase of 3-4 semesters com­pleted by a qual­i­fy­ing exam. Phase II is the research phase and open to can­did­ates with a Mas­ter‘s degree. It lasts 4-6 semesters in which can­did­ates con­duct spe­cial­ized research and attend at least one advanced course per semester.
