Postdoc position (Research Group Kohlhaase)

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Duisburg-Essen is inviting applications for a 2-year postdoc position in the research group of Professor Jan Kohlhaase.

Salary level: 100% TV-L E13
Application deadline: April 3, 2020
Starting date: June 1st, 2020 (or later)

Within the research project "Smooth modular representation theory of p-adic reductive groups" the position is funded by the DFG with the aim to advance the p-adic local Langlands program.

Candidates are required to have a PhD in mathematics with an excellent background in arithmetic geometry and/or representation theoretic aspects of the Langlands program. Your research interest and expertise should be related to smooth representations of p-adic reductive groups, the representation theory of p-adic Lie groups, p-adic Galois representations and/or other aspects of p-adic arithmetic geometry.

There is no teaching requirement.

Please submit your application on this web site. We require the following documents:

  • (optionally) a cover letter
  • A research statement
  • A curriculum vitae
  • Transcripts of records of your master's degree
  • A copy of your PhD thesis
You will also be requested to name two mathematicians who are willing to write a letter of recommendation in support of your application. We will contact them directly via email. Please ask them beforehand whether they are willing to write a letter for you.

Formal announcement of the position (in German).

Further information — Frequently Asked Questions

This is a postdoc position, hence we expect that you will have finished your PhD before you start the position here. You can apply if you have not yet finished your PhD. In this case, please interpret the corresponding questions (date, institution, advisor) as asking for the prospective date, ... of your degree. Instead of your PhD thesis, please upload a piece of mathematical writing that you authored: a piece of your thesis that is already finished, your master's thesis, or a publication/preprint that you wrote.

Deadline for applications: April 03, 2020.
