The Applied Algebraic Geometry Group at KU Leuven, which is part of:

has openings for several PhD students and postdoctoral researchers funded by Fatemeh Mohammadi's FWO Odysseus Research Grant, FWO Project Grant, and the KU Leuven iBOF Grant. These positions are fully-funded at internationally competitive rates. The group aims to develop theoretical and computational tools in discrete mathematics and algebraic geometry to study problems in mathematics, statistics, theoretical computer science, industrial engineering, and quantum physics.

Current Open PhD Positions (link):

I have openings for several four-year PhD positions for outstanding students to start anytime in 2023. The successful candidates will work in the area of Applied, Combinatorial, and Computational algebraic geometry. A master's degree in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, or Computer Science is required.

What we offer:

Please see this link for more details. If you are interested, send me an email ( containing the following:

Current Open Postdoctoral Positions:

I have openings for several research postdoctoral positions to start anytime in 2023. Applicants must have, or be close to completion of a PhD in Mathematics (algebraic geometry, discrete mathematics), Mathematical aspects of Physics, Statistics, Computer Science, or other related fields. 

What we offer: 

If you are interested, send me an email.

Additional Fellowships: 

From time to time, I will announce open positions on this website. I am also happy to consider new students/postdocs outside the framework of the above open positions. In particular, I am happy to support strong applicants for the following schemes.

Funds for Postdocs:

Funds for PhD students and visiting students:

Undergraduate Students

I have dedicated funds and am happy to supervise exceptionally strong undergraduate/master's students, both from Belgium and internationally, for research internships, theses, or reading courses. Write me an email if you are interested, and already have some background in themes similar to my research (algebra, combinatorics, polyhedral geometry, statistics). As a general rule of thumb, write to me only if you are at the top of your class or have related publications or medals in national/international competitions in mathematics, computer science or physics.
