W2 Professorship in Geometry (duration: tenured)
Location: Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany
Possible Start: Oct 01, 2024
Contact: Thomas Kahle

The department of mathematics at OvGU Magdeburg seeks to fill a W2 professorship in Geometry, in particular algebraic geometry, non-linear algebra, tropical geometry, and discrete geometry.

Deadline: Apr 08, 2024
Junior Professorship (W1) for Combinatorics (duration: 6 years)
Location: Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany
Possible Start: Oct 01, 2024
Contact: Christian Stump

The Faculty of Mathematics at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum invites applications for the position of a Junior Professor (without tenure track) (m/f/d) for Combinatorics (Salary Scale W 1) to start on as soon as possible. The successful candidate will represent the subject of Combinatorics in research and teaching. Applicants should have demonstrated excellence in an active area of Combinatorics. Preference will be given to applicants working at interconnections of the following fields: enumerative combinatorics, reflections and symmetries, commutative algebra, discrete geometry, matroid theory, convexity and lattices, applications such as the theory of amplituhedra and positive geometry. We are looking for a junior scientist with an internationally visible research profile who complements the existing research expertise and fundings at the Faculty of Mathematics. A close collaboration with the priority program SPP2458 "Combinatorial Synergies" will be expected. The teaching duties will include mathematics courses at undergraduate and graduate level. The teaching load is reduced.

PhD position in Statistics and Combinatorics (duration: 3 years)
Location: Bielefeld University and MPI MiS Leipzig, Germany
Possible Start: Jun 01, 2024
Contact: Martin Wahl

The Faculty of Mathematics at Bielefeld University (joint with MPI MiS Leipzig) invites applications for one PhD position for the project "Convexity and Grassmannians in Statistical Inference" which is a project at the interface of Statistics and Combinatorics. The position will be based at Bielefeld University, but the doctoral researcher will also work for two semesters in the Nonlinear Algebra group at MPI MiS in Leipzig. Applicants should have expertise in one of the following areas and high motivation to learn more about the other area:

  • statistics, in particular high-dimensional statistics, algebraic statistics, matrix and tensor methods, and manifold learning

  • combinatorics, in particular convex bodies, Grassmannians, matroids, and connections to algebraic geometry

Postdoctoral Positions in Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics and Related Fields (duration: open)
Location: MPI Leipzig, Germany
Possible Start: Jan 01, 2024
Contact: Bernd Sturmfels

We seek open-minded scholars with an exceptional research record. Strong computational skills are desirable. For our new ERC-Synergy project Universe+, we are especially interested in candidates who are excited about connections with physics.

Postdoctoral position in Combinatorial Algebra at Bielefeld University (duration: 2 years)
Location: Universität Bielefeld, Germany
Possible Start: Oct 01, 2024
Contact: Christopher Voll

Applicants should hold, or be about to complete, a doctorate in a relevant mathematical subject area such as algebra or combinatorics. Research experience in asymptotic group theory will be an advantage, but is not essential. The appointee will be required to contribute to the Faculty of Mathematics' teaching portolio (4 hours per week). German language skills are not a necessary requirement, but the ability and willingness to learn German to be able to teach in German after a year is. Support for language tuition is available.
