About the research project

The positions are part of the project “Combinatorial methods in Mathematical analysis”, funded by The Research Council of Norway. The main topics of the project are harmonic analysis and its applications to partial differential equations, including discrete models, nonharmonic Fourier analysis and discrepancy theory, analysis of Dirichlet series and analytic number theory. The candidate is expected to conduct research in one of the areas of the project under the supervision of a permanent member of the analysis group participating in the project.


The applicant must have a master’s degree in mathematics or comparable competence, and must also satisfy the requirements for entering the PhD programme at NTNU; please see

The admission to PhD education at NTNU requires an average grade of A or B within a scale of A-E for passing grades (A best) for the last two years of the MSc, and C or higher for the BSc.
