Lund University, Faculty of Science, Centre for Mathematical Sciences

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Science conducts research and education within Biology, Astronomy, Physics, Geosciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Environmental Sciences. The Faculty is organized into nine departments, gathered in the northern campus area. The Faculty has approximately 1500 students, 330 PhD students and 700 employees.

The Centre for Mathematical Sciences has approximately 130 employees, with 30 in the section Mathematics, Faculty of Science. The other divisions are Mathematics with Numerical Analysis, Faculty of Engineering, and Mathematical Statistics. Research at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences is conducted in computational algebra, Lie algebra theory and representation theory, algebraic topology, harmonic analysis, operator theory, complex analysis, linear and nonlinear PDEs, differential geometry, dynamical systems, image analysis and computer vision, as well as mathematical statistics, probability theory, numerical analysis, scientific computing, and mathematical didactics. The degree courses lead to bachelor, master, and PhD degrees and, at the Faculty of Engineering, to civil engineering degrees.

Job description

The position mainly entails research and teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels (especially related to algebra). Supervision of Bachelor, Master and PhD theses is included in the teaching tasks. Initially the amount of teaching will be at most 50 % of full time. Administration tasks may be included.
