We invite applications for 2 Postdoctoral Research Positions in the research group `Geometric Analysis in the Applied Sciences' at the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig (Germany). The appointments will be for two years. The planned starting date is October 2012, but upon candidate's request the position can start at any time between February 2012 and December 2012.
Candidates should have experience in at least one of the following areas:
- calculus of variations (e.g. in the context of nonlinear elasticity or geometry)
- geometric analysis (e.g. geometric evolution problems, Willmore surfaces, harmonic maps...)
- partial differential equations.
In order to receive full consideration, applications should be submitted no later than January 31, 2012. Applications submitted after that date will be considered until the positions are filled.
For further information please refer to the official announcement on our group website (http://www.mis.mpg.de/hornung/open-positions.html) or send an email to Peter Hornung under the above address.
