Since January 2019, the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) has been part of the Cluster of Excellence MATH+.

All members of the BMS are automatically members of MATH+ and vice versa.

Please note that only MATH+ members affiliated with one of the mathematics institutes (incl. WIAS and ZIB) can act as BMS Phase I advisors, PhD supervisors or mentors.

The MATH+ Faculty includes a great number of scientists from all three Berlin universities, ZIB and WIAS as well as other participating institutions such as the University of Potsdam. Faculty members are active in teaching BMS courses, advising, mentoring, organizing and contributing to the BMS in various ways.



The Guest Faculty consists of Einstein Visiting fellows and MATH+ Distinguished Visiting Scholars.

Guest Faculty


The MATH+ Postdocs and Scientists are researchers holding at least a doctorate degree and they come from all levels of the academic career: from fresh out of grad school up to senior researchers with permanent positions.

Postdocs and Scientists


The Dirichlet Postdoctoral Program is open to early-stage postdoctoral researchers from around the world across all mathematical fields. MATH+ and the BMS will support their development into independent researchers, while helping them to to further qualify themselves for their future careers and gain international visibility.
