Information about the department, division and the project

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg has about 200 employees, and is the largest department of mathematical sciences in Sweden. We deliver undergraduate and graduate courses for a diverse set of engineering and science programs at both universities, including two Master programs in mathematics. The department is comprised of three academic divisions: Algebra and Geometry; Analysis and Probability; Applied Mathematics and Statistics. More information about us can be found on our website:

The Division of Applied Mathematics and Statistics conducts internationally recognized research in areas such biomathematics, mathematical optimization, finite element methods, inverse problems, stochastic partial differential equations, mathematical statistics, and data science. The division is also rapidly expanding in the area of Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence

We are looking for one doctoral student, positioned at Chalmers, for the project “Structured multi-marginal optimal transport and applications”. The position is financed by the “Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program” (see below), and the project will develop theory and methods for this type of optimal transport problems: developing efficient solution methods for a class of strucutred problems; connecting it to stochastic differential equations; and exploring its use in machine learning.
