PostDoc position in number theory in Graz/Austria.

I offer a PostDoc position in a research project financed by the Austrian Science Fund FWF, which is currently carried out at the Institute of Analysis and Number Theory of the Technical University of Graz, Austria. The project is concerned with the application of analytic and probabilistic methods to problems from number theory and related fields. Topics include prime numbers, Riemann zeta function and L-functions, uniform distribution theory and discrepancy, exponential sums, Diophantine approximation, metric number theory, pseudorandomness of sequences, Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte Carlo methods, Dirichlet series, convergence of function series. Two young researchers are already working in this project, one PostDoc researcher (Marc Munsch) and one PhD student (Thomas Lachmann).

The Institute of Analysis and Number Theory of the TU Graz has a large (in comparison to the size of the city) and well-established number-theory research group, covering topics from analytic number theory, algebraic number theory, number-theoretic aspects of ergodic theory, additve combinatorics, Diophantine equations, etc. Currently there are 17 young researchers (PhD students and PostDocs) from various countries and with various mathematical interests at our institute, so the atmosphere is very stimulating and inspiring, with many possibilities for collaboration and interaction with other young researchers.

The successful applicant should have a broad knowledge in number theory and mathematics in general, and is expected to be able to work on his/her own initiative and in a self-reliant way. The position starts on September 1st, 2017, and is currently announced for a duration of 1 year. (However, the possibility for a further extension is likely, subject to the extension of some research grants). The research project is well-equipped with funds for traveling, research visits, and for the invitation of guests. The salary is 3.590 € per month, pre-tax, 14 times per year, which accounts to roughly 33.000 €, after tax, per year.

To apply for this position, please send an application containing
- a scientific CV including publication list
- a letter of recommendation from an established mathematician
- a short description of your research interests and potential research topics for the duration of the position.

Applications should be sent to Christoph Aistleitner, Of course you can also contact me if you have questions concerning the position.

Deadline for applications is March 31, 2017.
