With fund­ing from the Ger­man-Israeli-Found­a­tion (GIF), we endeavor to improve our under­stand­ing of the role of inform­a­tion flows in stochastic con­trol prob­lems. Recent pro­gress in the ana­lysis of prob­lems involving jump pro­cesses has revealed novel mod­el­ling pos­sib­il­it­ies. On the one hand this requires the fur­ther devel­op­ment of tools from dynamic pro­gram­ming the­ory, and on the other hand affords the oppor­tun­ity to study new applic­a­tions, for instance in the micro­struc­ture mod­el­ling of fin­an­cial mar­kets. The pro­ject will be worked on in close col­lab­or­a­tion with the group of Prof. Yan Dol­in­sky at the Hebrew Uni­versity, Jer­u­s­alem.

Work­ing field:

Devel­op­ment of the­ory and applic­a­tions in stochastic optimal con­trol prob­lems in mod­els with dis­con­tinu­ous inform­a­tion flow. Sci­entific cooper­a­tion and exchange with our part­ner group in Israel, in par­tic­u­lar vis­its to the Hebrew Uni­versity in Jer­u­s­alem. Form­a­tion of our research pro­gram and of joint research activ­it­ies.


  • suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in Math­em­at­ics or closely related dis­cip­lines
  • strong know­ledge of stochastic ana­lysis and stochastic optimal con­trol
  • good com­mand of Eng­lish or Ger­man, together with good aca­demic writ­ing and present­a­tion skills required; the will­ing­ness to learn either Eng­lish or Ger­man is expec­ted
  • eager­ness to engage in exchange with Jer­u­s­alem part­ners
