(CHE-Research Ranking, DFG-Fund Ranking). Our faculty reached number 15 among all mathematics departments in Germany in the DFG-Förderatlas 2018.

This was confirmed in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (Shanghai Ranking) 2018 by a position among the 101-150 best Mathematics Departments worldwide. At the same time, Mathematics at UDE ranks among the top eight in Germany.

Current Events

Research Training Group 2553 “Symmetries and classifying spaces: analytic, arithmetic and derived”

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.
