    Postdoctoral Positions in Zeta Functions and Fourier-Mukai Transforms

    Postdoctoral Positions in Zeta Functions and Fourier-Mukai Transforms

    Faculteit/Dienst: Faculteit der Natuurw., Wiskunde & Informatica
    Opleidingsniveau: Universiteit
    Functie type: Wetenschappelijk Personeel
    Sluitingsdatum: 17 januari 2022
    Vacaturenummer: 7802
    Do you enjoy algebraic, arithmetic or derived geometry? Do you have experience in deformation theory, p-adic cohomology, Fourier-Mukai transforms, hyperkähler varieties, higher algebra, dg categories, hochschild homology, or related areas? Then one of our two positions as a highly versatile professional postdoc at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is perfect for you.

    What will you be doing?

    As a postdoc you will conduct research in an area broadly related to Lenny Taelman's ERC project 'Zeta functions and Fourier-Mukai transforms'. The positions involve a small teaching load (max 10%, in English).

    What do we require of you?

    • A PhD in Mathematics.
    • Research experience in algebraic and/or arithmetic geometry.
    • Fluency in English, both written and spoken.
    • Experience in teaching is a plus.

    Our offer

    You will be part of a lively local research group and a very active national Algebraic Geometry community. We offer two postdoc positions, each with a two year contract. The preferred starting date is 1 September 2022. The employment contract is for 38 hours a week.

    Your salary, depending on your relevant experience on commencement of the employment contract, ranges between €2,846 to €4,490 gross per month on the basis of a full working week of 38 hours. This sum does not include the 8% holiday allowance and the 8.3% year-end allowance. The Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO NU) is applicable.

    About us
    The University of Amsterdam is the largest university in the Netherlands, with the broadest spectrum of degree programmes. It is an intellectual hub with 39,000 students, 6,000 employees and 3,000 doctoral students who are all committed to a culture of inquiring minds.

    The Algebraic Geometry group at the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics (KdVI) consists of Arno Kret, Diletta Martinelli, Mingmin Shen, Lenny Taelman, and their PhD students and postdocs. We run research seminars and study groups, and together with geometers of nearby universities we organise many national activities including national courses, the Intercity Seminars and the Belgian-Dutch Algebraic Geometry days.

    We also have a lot of interaction with the local research groups in Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics.
