Within the DFG Research Training Group ?Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces? (RTG 2229), funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and jointly run by Heidelberg University and the Karlsruhe Institut for Technology we invite applications for
2 Postdoc positions.
Appointments are for two years with the possibility of a one year extensionPayment is according to the wage agreement of the civil service TV-
L 100% of salary level E13.
The research focus of the Research Training group is the systematic study of geometric spaces with regard to their asymptotic invariants and their behavior under deformations, degenerations, and taking limits.
It provides a structured framework for a cross-boundary PhD training in geometry.Postdocs will benefit from a broad, inspiring mathematical environment, mentoring by the PIs and advanced and tailor-
made courses on the topics of the RTG. An intensive visitor's program, frequent workshops and PhD schools will contribute to a vibrant scientific environment.
In addition, we offer professional skills modules.We seek candidates with the following profile : They have written an excellent PhD thesis in an RTG related area, and their research should have potential for further development.
They should show broad mathematical interests and be able to bridge different research areas of the RTG.Heidelberg University strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment.
We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply for this position. With appropriate qualifications, applications from persons with handicaps will be treated with preference.
