PhD positions


Deadline: 1 August 2017 (contact PI before 23 June 2017)
Starting date: 1 November 2017

We advertise a possibility for a PhD position, starting the 1st of November 2017, in the area of COMPLEX GEOMETRY at Centre for Quantum Geometry of Moduli Spaces (QGM) within the Department of Mathematics at Aarhus University (Denmark). 

The position is funded by the Aarhus University Research Foundation (AUFF) in the framework of the AUFF Starting Grant “Special metrics on complex manifolds, their moduli spaces and geometric formation of singularities” held by Associate Professor Cristiano Spotti.

The research project (under the supervision of Cristiano Spotti) focuses on metric aspects of complex manifolds (e.g., Kähler geometry, canonical metrics) and their relations with complex analytic and algebraic aspects (e.g., degenerations of varieties, formations of singularities). 

Application procedure
Interested applicants should contact the PI ( approximately before the 23rd of June 2017. The application is via the Science and Technology PhD program of Aarhus University.

See for further information regarding the requirements (e.g., necessary degrees and English qualifications).

Associate Professor in Geometry/Topology at Aarhus University

Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science and Technology, Aarhus University, invites applications for a permanent position as Associate Professor in Geometry and Topology to be filled as soon as possible. The workplace will be the Department of Mathematics and the successful applicant will be associated with Centre for Quantum Geometry of Moduli Spaces (QGM) within the Department of Mathematics.

The chosen candidate is expected to play an active role in securing external funding and take part in the teaching and supervision of students at all levels.

QGM focuses on Quantum Geometry of Moduli Spaces. In particular the aim is to provide and study complete mathematical models for a number of quantum field theories.  These include topological twists of quantum Yang-Mills theory, the geometric Langlands Program, quantum Chern-Simons theory and quantum gravity in two- and three-spatial dimensions. It is a collaborative project involving representation theory, algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, quantum algebra, quantum topology of three-manifolds, Riemann surfaces and Teichmüller theory, gauge theory and Berezin-Toeplitz quantization, together with mathematical aspects of quantum field theory and string theory.
