Amsterdam

The 8th General AMaMeF Conference on Mathematical Finance
Date/location: June 19-23, 2017, Amsterdam
AMaMeF is the acronym standing for Advanced Mathematical Methods in Finance. Under this name a research network has been funded by the ESF from 2005 to 2010 (and also by various national scientific organizations). Under the auspices of AMaMeF numerous conferences, workshops and other scientific activities have been organized. Of these the annual General AMaMeF Conferences have been the biggest.
After the end of the funding period, AMaMeF continued as an unfunded European scientific network and activities are still organized under its flag, like the General Conferences.
Plenary lectures will be given by Fred Espen Benth (University of Oslo),
Carole Bernard (Grenoble School of Management and Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Bruno Bouchard (Universit? Paris-Dauphine),
S?ren Christensen (University of Hamburg), Christa Cuchiero (University of Vienna), Paul Glasserman (Columbia University), Xin Guo (UC Berkeley),
Jan Obł?j (University of Oxford), and Mikl?s R?sonyi (Alfr?d R?nyi Institute of Mathematics).

The program further consists of other invited and contributed lectures and posters. Registration, submission of abstracts and further information on the
website.

PhD and postdoc

The Department of Mathematics of Radboud University Nijmegen is seeking outstanding, highly motivated researchers for the NWO VIDI Project:

On the edge: theory and techniques at the frontiers of edge-colouring,

under the direction of Dr. Ross Kang.

The PhD position is four years.
The postdoc position is one year, with a possible renewal.
Both positions offer competitive salary and benefits, including generous support for travel. There is a light teaching duty that may be carried out in English if necessary. For both, the expected starting date is
1 September 2017 (negotiable).

The project is in probabilistic and extremal combinatorics, and the goal is to develop and apply novel methods in the context of edge-colourings of graphs. The research has links with the theory of communication networks, random graphs and algorithms.

Application deadline: 16 March 2017

For more information, including details on the requirements and application procedure: PhD position, postdoc position

For informal inquiries, please contact Ross Kang.
