Postdoc positions in Trondheim
February 10, 2012 )
Up to 4 post.doc.-fellowships for 3 years with 33% teaching
and other duties are vacant at the Department of Mathematical
Sciences at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
A post.doc.-fellowship is intended to give candidates holding
a PhD-degree a possibility for further research on an advanced
level. At the Department of Mathematical Sciences research on an
internationally high level within the main disciplines algebra,
analysis, differential equations and numerical analysis, geometry/
topology, and statistics is conducted. Part of the research is
also done in close cooperation with other fields of science and
technology within NTNU as well as in cooperation with industry and
external research institutions.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences wants to support the best
candidates and therefore makes no restriction on the field of
research except that it has to be within the main subjects of the
department as mentioned above. The application must contain a short
project description written in conjunction with one of the research
groups at the department. Strategic considerations may be taken in
the final distribution of post.doc.-fellows between the disciplines.
Strong applicants in topology and functional analysis are encouraged
The post.doc.-fellows will be part of the Department for Mathematical
Sciences at NTNU and will have their workplace there. See:
Applicants who do not speak a Scandinavian language have to document
eminent knowledge in English (with TOEFL score 600 or better).
The applicants must hold a PhD-degree within one of the research
areas of the department (algebra, analysis, differential equations
and numerical analysis, geometry/topology, or statistics) or have
reached an equivalent level of education and research before being
employed as a post.doc.-fellow.
