All our research teams are linked to a network of both national and international scientific cooperations. Below is a summary of the Faculty of Mathematics’ third party funded projects as well as of research cooperations both inside and outside of the University.
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.

DFG-Research Training Groups
Within the framework of the Gaspard Monge Program for Optimization and Operations research (PGMO) of the Fondation Mathematiques Jacques Hadamard, Prof. Dr. Schultz is working on "Optimization under probabilistic constraints of complex systems - Application to the Anchoring offshore wind turbines". Partners are the Université Paris Diderot, Paris VII and Électricité de France (EDF).
The Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic consists of scientific research teams working in the area of algebraic geometry, algebraic K-theory, arithmetic geometry and number theory at the Essen Campus of the University of Duisburg-Essen.
