I am a student of an Asian country who completed the 2nd year of masters last year and I am applying for PhD positions in Pure Mathematics in Europe.

I know about this scholarship database website which list open positions for PhDs, but I don't think that the list is complete by any means.

Can you please let me know of some websites that have a list of open PhD positions in Pure Mathematics in Europe?

    Europe is a continent and not a country. A lot of these things are organized nationally. Mar 17 at 14:33

    You should identify the departments/supervisors you are interested in working with and check their websites to see if they are advertising for PhD students. There's no global system.

Almost all open academic positions (including PhD positions) in the Netherlands will be posted to:


I would suggest having a look at the European Commission database of offers


The filtering options are quite useful, although I would suggest you leaving them loose.

The site you listed is just crawling across this site, so better to go straight to the source of informations.


Almost all open PhD positions (in any field) in the UK will be on FindAPhD.com.

  • I don't think that's always true. The department I did my PhD in used to advertise one or two projects are year on there (usually the flashy ones with the big-name supervisor) but there were many other available projects and supervisors besides those directly advertised. Nevertheless, it's a starting point.
