The teaching load is typically two quarter (half-semester) courses per year of which one usually is as a teaching assistant.
Applicants in all areas of Mathematics covered by the research groups of the department will be considered. In particular there will be postdoc stipends in the following specific areas/centers of the Department:
- Algebraic and arithmetic geometry, combinatorics, geometry and geometric analysis, Lie theory, representation theory, number theory, and topology, as covered by the Section for Algebra & Geometry and the Copenhagen Center for Geometry & Topology (GeoTop).
- Functional analysis, operator algebras, descriptive set theory, harmonic and classical analysis, history of mathematics, mathematical physics, random matrix theory, partial differential equations, quantum information and quantum computing, as covered by the section Analysis and Quantum, the Center for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory (QMATH), the Novo Nordisk Foundation Quantum for Life Center, and the DFF project Operator Algebras, Groups and Quantum Spaces.
For more information about the above units, please see their webpages, or contact any of professors listed there.
There are also some postdoc stipends available which are not attached to any of the above mentioned centers/grants. Applications in Statistics, Insurance and Economics, including OR, are referred to our call [SPTIE2021 #18015]
