1 year PostDoc position in analysis and number theory at TU Graz, Austria

I am offering a position for a PostDoc researcher at the Institute of Analysis and Number Theory of the Technical University of Graz in Graz/Austria. The position is for one year. The position starts in summer 2018 (starting date is flexible, could be May, June, July, August or September).

The position is located within a large research network called "Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods: Theory and Applications", and in particular within the sub-project "Number-theoretic, probabilistic and computational aspects of uniform distribution theory". The problems investigated in this project are situated somewhere on the intersection of number theory, analysis, probability theory and numerical analysis. See http://www.sfb-qmc.jku.at/ for more information on this research network.

Particular topics of the project include:

- equidistribution theory (theory of uniform distribution modulo one), pair correlations, Diophantine approximation, metric number theory, analytic number theory
- low-discrepancy sampling, Quasi-Monte Carlo integration, information-based complexity, tractability theory, pseudo-randomness of deterministic sequences.

The applicant is expected to collaborate and interact with other members of the research project and of the institute. The Institute of Analysis and Number Theory currently has a (relative) large number of young scientist, totaling to 15 PhD students and PostDoc researchers, so we can guarantee a stimulating and lively atmosphere.

Applicants should have a PhD degree. Salary is 3.626 € per month (before taxes, 14 times a year).

Please send your application per e-mail to aistleitner@math.tugraz.at, including a CV, publication list, relevant certificates, a copy of your PhD thesis and/or research papers, a short description of your current research topics and intended future research, and a letter of recommendation from a senior scientist. The letter of recommendation can be included in your application documents, but it can also be sent directly to me (aistleitner@math.tugraz.at) by its author. Deadline for application is March 31, 2018.

Female mathematicians are particularly encouraged to apply (but male applicants are considered as well, of course).
