In the frame of the Severo Ochoa award granted to the institute in 2011, the Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas (ICMAT, Madrid) announces the availability of EIGHT pre-doctoral contracts to carry out a PhD thesis in mathematics in one of the research lines of the institute.
Three of the doctoral thesis will be developed in the frame of the ICMAT Laboratories:
The CRC 755 “Nanoscale Photonic Imaging” at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen
seeks qualiﬁed applicants for the position of a
Postdoctoral Research Assistant
(salary group EG 13, TV-L, fulltime 39.8 hours/week)
(salary group EG 13, TV-L, 26.7 hours/week)
to begin on or after December 1, 2013 for a duration of 3 years.
This 2 years postdoctoral position is supported by the ERC grant of Jean-Michel Bismut. Applicants should be working in the following areas: geometric analysis, spectral theory, eta invariants and analytic torsion (real and complex), trace formula, refinements of Riemann-Roch, Dirac operators and their hypoelliptic version, Bargmann kernels, Fokker-Planck operators, geometric probability theory, diffusions on manifolds, mathematical physics. The postdoc will devote most of his time to research, and will participate to the the department activities.
CIMI LabEx (Centre International de Mathématiques et d’Informatique) in Toulouse offers two post-doctoral positions to be filled as from October 2014.
The positions are funded for one year and may be extended for a second year.
The research areas should be developed within the activities at the Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse (IMT) and the Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT).
A postdoctoral Research Fellow (RF) position, starting 1 November 2013 and renewable for up to 3 years, is available at the School of Computer Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University. The RF would investigate shape representation through harmonics. Strong mathematical skills and numerical skills in MATLAB, C++,and Python are desired, but what is most important is a passion to explore how shapes and harmonics relate–in Marc Kac’s famous question “Can you hear the shape of a drum?” Candidates should have a PhD or be very close to completion.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas invites applications for up to five tenured or tenure-track positions beginning Fall 2014. The Department seeks to hire in the following general areas:
One position in statistics/biostatistics
Up to two positions in mathematics with a preference for differential/algebraic/symplectic Geometry and allied fields
Up to two positions in computational/applied mathematics.
The Institute of Mathematics of the University of Zurich invites applications for a position of a
Lectureship in Mathematics
This position, beginning September 1st, 2014 (negotiable), is intended for young scientists with a PhD degree. The lectureship is awarded for a period of three years.
The Institute offers a stimulating research environment and excellent working conditions.
The successful candidate will already have shown exceptional promise in research. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
The Mathematics Center Heidelberg (MATCH) offers postdoctoral scholarships to qualified young scientists. These scholarships can be awarded for 1-year or 2-year periods.
The appointment starts usually around September-October 2014.
Applicants should send a CV, list of publications, two letters of recommendation and a research project with names of possible collaborators at MATCH to:
Mathematics Center Heidelberg
Im Neuenheimer Feld 288
The deadline for applications is January 17, 2014.
For the project "Structured and continuous reinforcement learning" funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) we are looking for a PostDoc with strong background in mathematics (such as dynamic programming, probability theory, statistics, optimization, OR) and interest in reinforcement learning. Highly qualified PhD candidates might be considered as well.
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position fully funded by the European Research Council Starting Research Grant Chaotic Properties of Parabolic Flows: Mixing, Rigidiy and Spectra and supervised by the project leader Dr Corinna Ulcigrai.
The project focus on the ergodic and spectral properties of parabolic dynamical systems and includes a range of objectives connected to Teichmueller dynamics, time changes of homogenous flows and infinite ergodic theory.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Konstanz offers in the research project Hilbert's irreducibility theorem and varieties over number fields a
(Salary Scale 13 TV-L/75 %)
for a three-year limited term.

The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) will fill research positions in the areas
General Relativity and Cosmology
Geometric Measure Theory
Numerical General Relativity
Research programs concern the mathematical problems of general relativity and related physical theories, and are based in analysis, geometry and numerical analysis. In particular, non-linear partial differential equations are a common theme of our research.
The graduated program in Pure and Applied Math at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) seeks candidates for one post-doctoral position through the National Programme for Post-Doctoral Scholarships (CAPES).
1. The scholarship consists of a monthly payment of 4100 brazilian reals per month (tax-free), plus a travel grant. The positions are initially for one year and may be renewed depending on progress. The scholars are expected to teach some undergraduate or graduate classes (at most one course per semester), depending on the necessity of the program.
