The successful candidates should have a PhD degree related to one of the fol-lowing areas: algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, differential geometry, quantum topology, quantum algebra, Riemann surface theory, gauge theory, Berezin-Toeplitz quantization or mathematical aspects of Quantum Field Theory and String Theory or related disciplines. Further, he/she should have obtained strong results in one of these areas of research.

The successful applicant will take part in all aspects of a university position, including research, fund raising and administration.

The applicant is expected to take actively part in teaching at all levels and supervision of students at bachelor, master's and PhD level.

Applicants should have a strong record of original scientific research at a high international level. Applicants are also expected to document their experience with all facets of university teaching and supervision.

QGM focuses on various aspects of quantization of moduli spaces of various structures on low dimensional manifolds with the view to provide complete mathematical models and to study such models for a number of quantum field theories. Many parts of algebra and geometry are involved in this project.

Documents required for the online application is a CV, a list of publications and a research statement. References can be sent by referees directly to human resource officer, Anett Dagø Rasmussen, no later than 17, December 2017 with the candidate’s name clearly stated in the subject field.

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.
