The Group of Mathematical Physics of the University of Lisbon (gfm.cii.fc.ul.pt/enapplications for two research post-doctoral positions in Mathematics within the scope of the following Portuguese Science Foundation project.
Eigenvalues of the Laplacian: analytic, geometric and computational aspects (PTDC/MAT/101007/2008)
Positions are for one year, starting before the end of January 2012, and they might be extended for a second year upon mutual agreement – the extension will be dependent on the existence of extra funding. The salary is 17 940 euros/yr (tax free), and there are no teaching duties associated with the position. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mathematics (or equivalent) obtained preferably after January 1, 2008 and must show very strong research promise in (at least) one of the relevant areas for the project:
- Laplacian, Schrödinger and related operators
- Spectral geometry
- Numerical analysis applied to shape optimization
Please send a curriculum vitae, reprints, preprints, dissertation abstract, and a research statement (of no more than 1,000 words) to :
Av. Prof. Gama Pinto, 2, P-1649-003 Lisboa, Portugal
tel: +351 21 790 47 39, fax: +351 21 795 42 88
Three letters of reference should be sent directly to the same address. To ensure full consideration, complete application packages should be received by May 31, 2011, when the review of applications begins. The process continues until both positions have been filled.
The Group of Mathematical Physics is devoted to scientiﬁc excellence and has been ranked as one of the best Portuguese research units in Mathematics in all international evaluations. The selection of candidates will be performed strictly according to this scientiﬁc policy. Additional information about the group and the positions may be found at Official Website.
