Postdoc in Symplectic Topology and related fields in Tel Aviv

The School of Mathematical Sciences at Tel Aviv University invites applications for a post-doctoral fellowship in symplectic topology and related fields. The School has a strong and diverse geometry and topology group specialising in symplectic geometry and topology, symplectic group actions, mirror symmetry and algebraic geometry, billiards and convexity, dynamics, spectral geometry. 

The position starts on October 1, 2022. Its duration is two years with a possible extension to the third year. Applications for a shorter period (1-3 semesters) will be considered as well. The applicants have to complete their Ph. D. degree by September 30, 2022 but not earlier than October 1, 2018.

Post-doctoral fellowships are strictly research positions and do not carry any teaching responsibilities. Candidates should email Ms. Nurit Liberman at [email protected] with cc to [email protected] , [email protected] and [email protected] the following application materials:

1) CV
2) List of Publications
3) Research statement

Research Fellow position on Coupled Quantum-Classical Dynamics at Surrey

The Mathematics Department at the University of Surrey (UK) is advertising a full-time Research Fellow position on Coupled Quantum-Classical Dynamics.

High quality candidates from Applied Mathematics or Theoretical Physics (or related areas) with familiarity with numerical methods and a solid background in quantum and classical mechanics are particularly sought.

At the basis of measurement theory, the interaction of classical and quantum degrees of freedom has attracted much attention in several other fields, ranging from mathematics to physics and chemistry. Different levels of scientific capabilities will be engaged: on the one hand, the Fellow will investigate the mathematical features of QC coupling in both reversible and irreversible regimes; on the other hand, they will perform numerical simulations to study decoherence dynamics and other physical effects of QC correlations.

This position is for 2.5 years, starting at any point between 1 December 2021 and 1 March 2022. For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Dr Cesare Tronci via email at [email protected].

In addition to salary, the successful candidate will receive a generous annual leave entitlement and excellent development opportunities.  The University of Surrey offers benefits packages which include pension, childcare assistance and leisure facilities.

Deadline for application: 6 October 2021
