Postdoc positions in Pure Mathematics
We are looking for motivated post-doctoral researchers with a strong research record in one of the following areas of pure mathematics: algebraic geometry, classical analysis, differential geometry, functional analysis, group theory. The successful candidates will develop their own research program in one of the pure mathematics research groups at KU Leuven. A list of research topics is available at http://wis.kuleuven.be/methusalem-pure-math. We also expect postdocs to participate in the guidance of PhD students and to animate the mathematical research environment by organizing working seminars, advanced courses, etc. Postdocs will have a limited amount of teaching duties. Financed by the long term Methusalem funding, the KU Leuven research groups in pure mathematics joined their forces in the research project "Classification, symmetries and singularities at the frontiers of algebra, analysis and geometry", encompassing the expertise of the different research groups involved and focusing on some of the most challenging problems in algebra, analysis and geometry. In this large scale research project that started in 2016, several PhD students and postdocs are employed. We organize colloquia, seminars and advanced courses. In this stimulating environment, all researchers are exposed to a broad spectrum of mathematical research with several collaboration opportunities.
The successful candidates will develop their own research program in one of the following pure mathematics research groups at KU Leuven. More information on the research topics and possible PhD advisors can be found at the web site mentioned above.
