Post-Doctoral Fellowship - University of Neuchatel, Switzerland

Within the framework of the Swiss National Science Foundation project ``Higher-dimensional geometric and combinatorial structures'' a Post-Doctoral Fellowship is available. The tentative start date is January, 2018 (or at an earlier convenience). The application deadline is November 1st, 2017.

This position has duration of two years (with a one year extension pending financial approval). All candidates must hold a Ph.D., or an equivalent.

In addition to their research, the successful candidate is expected to engage in the faculty activities (organising seminars, reading groups for doctoral students, etc) and to seek collaboration with other faculty members.

The emphasis of the project is in the areas of hyperbolic geometry, geometric topology, group theory, and related topics (e.g. geometry of polyhedra and manifolds, as well as its connections with Coxeter groups and combinatorics). More information about the group's research can be found on my web-page.

This position carries a competitive salary which starts at approximately 80'000 CHF per annum (gross income).

Application package should include:

  • a complete curriculum vitae (with a photo),

  • letters of recommendation (no more than three).

Preferably all application should be sent by e-mail in order to receive timely consideration. Please bind your application package as a single .pdf file. Only selected candidates will be contacted.
