There is a strong connection between mathematical theories of group representations and special functions. Over the past years this connection has been extended to representation theory of quantum groups, which can be considered a deformation of groups, and special functions. The goal of the project is to establish the relationship between quantum groups and matrix-valued special functions, and to obtain new results in these areas.

You will be supervised by prof.dr. H.T. Koelink and dr. P.M. Román (Cordoba, Argentina). Duties include teaching.

**Requirements**

You must have a Master’s degree in mathematics, preferably with an emphasis on representation theory, Lie groups, and/or special functions.

**Organization**

The Mathematics Department in Nijmegen is part of the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP). The Mathematics division of IMAPP consists of three groups: Algebra and Logic, Applied Stochastics, and Mathematical Physics. The opening for the PhD-student is in the Mathematical Physics (MP) group. This group has three chairs: Analysis, Geometry and Mathematical Physics. The main research themes in MP are Noncommutative Geometry, Lie and Quantum Groups, Special Functions and Symplectic Geometry.
