A Postdoctoral Fellow is expected to conduct research and may, to some extent, teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The candidate must be able to collaborate with researchers already employed at the division. It is important that the applicant already before the application deadline establishes contact with Professor Boris Shapiro and discusses the research program.
The Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University with its excellent research record and long lasting traditions has acquired a very special place in Scandinavian mathematics. The department consists of two divisions: mathematics and mathematical statistics. Professors and lecturers working at the Division of Mathematics possess competence in different areas of mathematics ranging from algebra, geometry and analysis to mathematical logic and combinatorics.
A Postdoctoral Fellow is employed foremost in order to perform research and should have a doctoral degree.
The degree should have been obtained no more than three years prior to the deadline. In case of special reasons the doctoral degree could have been obtained earlier. Such reasons are leave due to illness, parental leave, clinical service, trade union service or other similar circumstances.
In the appointment process special weight will be given to scientific proficiency. Weight will also be given to the proposed research program and its connection to research at the department.
The position is directed towards research in orthogonal polynomials, potential theory and related areas of mathematics.
The employment is full-time and for one year with possibility of a second year. Prolongation beyond the second year might be possible only due to special reasons. Starting date is 2015-08-01 or by appointment.
Stockholm University strives to be a workplace that is free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.
