This type of study requires a combination of real and complex analysis, as well as methods of functional analysis and operator theory.The position covers four years of postgraduate studies (research and course work) and one year of departmental duties, mainly teaching in mathematics.

Eligibility
The special requirements for admission to postgraduate studies in mathematics are completed courses in mathematics equivalent to at least 120 credits, of which 50 must be at advanced (MSc) level. The courses at basic and advanced level should include a degree project corresponding to at least 30 credits. Special eligibility may be obtained through equivalent studies; this will be assessed in each case. Courses in functional analysis and a primary knowledge about spaces of analytic functions are desirable merits.

Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who- have completed a second-cycle degree- have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or- have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.
