POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN MATHEMATICS

THE DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS AT KTH, STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, INVITES APPLICATIONS FOR POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS.

The postdoctoral fellowships are financed by a grant from the K. &
A. Wallenberg foundation.

A candidate is expected to conduct research in one of the following
areas: Algebraic geometry, Dynamical systems, Combinatorics, Complex
analysis, Mathematical Physics and Spectral theory, Number theory or
Partial differential equations.

The duration of the stay is 12 months, with a possibility of
prolongation for an additional 12 months, beginning during June-August
or September 1, 2010, at the latest.

An application should contain a Curriculum Vitae (maximum 3 pages) and
a list of publications, a description of research (maximum 3 pages)
and two or three letters of recommendation, sent by the recommenders
not the applicant. It is recommended that the candidate contacts one
of the persons mentioned below before submitting the application.

Candidates cannot have their PhD degrees from KTH or the Stockholm
area. Candidates must not have obtained their PhD degrees earlier than
January 1, 2007. Those who have not finished their PhD studies when
applying must obtain their PhD degrees before June 1, 2010.

The last date for applications is January 8, 2010. Applications
received after this date may not receive full consideration. The
candidates should give the full address at which they can be reached
during January-May 2010. Please indicate the reference number
