PostDoc Position in the project "Nonstandard methods for Ramsey Theory"

The Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna is the largest Austrian institution of mathematical research and tertiary education in the mathematical sciences. It consists of active research groups in a wide range of fields, starting from logical foundations, bridging all classical core subjects, and up to concrete applications in industry.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in the FWF Project "Nonstandard methods for Ramsey theory" (webpage: This projects is focused on several problems in combinatorial number theory, with methods based mostly (but not solely) on mathematical logic.

We are searching for a PostDoc interested in working in the area of combinatorial number theory, particularly on problems related with the partition regularity of equations and finite embeddabilities.
The ideal candidate has some prior knowledge of at least one of the following: (1) combinatorial number theory; (2) nonstandard analysis; (3) ergodic theory.
The candidate is expected to work in strict contact with the project leader on themes relevant for the project. Moreover, he/she will be expected to develop independent research in Ramsey theory, in particular concerning problems related with the partition regularity of polynomials and algebraical configurations.
There are no teaching duties.

The PostDoc will work in this project for 18 months.

The deadline for applications is 30 June 2018.

The winning applicant is expected to start working on the project not later than the 1st of September 2018 (a short delay might be allowed for exceptional reasons).

The salary will be offered in accordance with the guidelines prescribed by the FWF. Additional infos can be found at the following link:

All applications should be submitted electronically to before the 30th of June 2018
Applications should include:
- a letter of motivation;
- an academic cv listing all submissions/publications (if any; preprints will be considered only if they are freely available online);
- name of at least one reference;
- a letter of reference (preferred, but not necessary).
