Postdoctoral position in Number Theory

A postdoctoral position in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Basel is open.

This position is available in the framework of the Swiss National Science Foundation project "Height of Rational Points on Algebraic Varieties" led by Pierre Le Boudec. This project aims to apply Analytic Number Theory (and Geometry of Numbers) techniques to investigate problems in Diophantine/Arithmetic Geometry. Therefore, applicants are expected to have research interests close to (at least one of) these areas.

The position carries low teaching duties (assisting for one course every semester).

The duration of the position is two years (with a possibility of renewal for a third year). The yearly gross salary is about CHF 80,000.

The starting date of the position will be September 1st 2018 (at the latest). Applicants who do not hold a PhD yet must have defended before the starting date.

Applicants should send a CV, a publication list, a research statement and arrange for (exactly) three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Pierre Le Boudec at

The position will be advertised until filled. Only selected applicants will be contacted.
