The German Research Foundation DFG will fund a Research Training Group run by the Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic starting April 2020. The first funding period will run for four and a half years. After an initial phase, eventually 13 positions for PhD students and one postdoc position will be funded. The first 4 positions will be formally announced shortly.
Mathematician and UDE Professor Dr. Marc Levine is receiving one of the much sought-after ERC Advanced Grants. With these grants the European Research Council is supporting groundbreaking and visionary research. 2.1 Million euros are going to Levine – him being a leading expert worldwide in the field of algebraic geometry – , so that he is able to realize his project over the coming five years. It is called QUADAG – Quadratic refinements in algebraic geometry.
