Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) –

Get Your Math PhD in Berlin

 

The Berlin Mathematical School is the joint graduate school of the mathematics departments at the three major universities in Berlin: Freie Universität, Humboldt-Universität and Technische Universität.

 

We offer an excellent (post)graduate program taught in English in a broad and active research environment. This is complemented by our mentoring program, language courses, soft-skills seminars, travel support for summer schools and conferences, and special funding for students with children.

 

Our seven main research areas are:

 

* Differential geometry, global analysis and mathematical physics

* Algebraic and arithmetic geometry, number theory

* Probability, statistics and financial mathematics

* Discrete mathematics and combinatorial optimization

* Geometry, topology and visualization

* Numerical mathematics and scientific computing

* Applied analysis and differential equations

 

The graduate program starts with three to four semesters of course work (Phase I) leading to a master's degree. This is followed by four to six semesters of thesis research (Phase II) leading to a doctoral degree at one of the three universities.

 

Students who will have completed their bachelor's degree by October 2017 can apply to Phase I; those who will have completed their master's degree by this date can apply to start directly in Phase II.

 

Complete information about applying to the BMS is available online:

Application deadline (scholarships available): 1 December 2016

Late application deadline (limited number of scholarships available): 1 April 2017
