The IRTG Stochastic Models of Complex Processes Berlin-Zurich is offering several scholarships for graduate students in Berlin starting October 2009. Candidates should have obtained (or be about to obtain) a Diploma or M.Sc. degree in mathematics or closely related fields with results significantly above average, and intend to pursue graduate studies in mathematics within the research area of the IRTG. The IRTG offers, besides the opportunity to do supervised research, a rich graduate programme consisting of graduate courses, seminars, and guest lectures. Fellows are required to actively participate in this programme.

Scholarships are tax-free and carry a monthly stipend of e1203.- plus family allowance. They are initially awarded for two years, subject to renewal to up to 3 years. All graduate students will be expected to work for a Ph.D. degree at one of the participating universities
