Kevin Schnelli


I am an assistant professor tenure track and docent at the
Department of Mathematics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. My research interests are in Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics and Mathematical Physics, with a focus on Random Matrix Theory and Statistical Mechanics. My research is supported by the Göran Gustafsson Foundation and the Swedish Research Council (Grant VR-2017-05195).

Together with Maurice Duits and Kurt Johansson, I am part of the focus group Random Matrices, Stochastic Models and Analysis within the Department of Mathematics at KTH.

We are currently offering two postdoctoral positions in our focus group. One with Maurice Duits and one with Kevin Schnelli as mentors. The positions are for two years and start on July 1, 2019 or later. Deadline for applications is January 9, 2019. For more information click here. Please note that applications have to be submitted via KTH's application system.
