Position ID: OhioState-RVAP [#9298]
Position Title: Research Visiting Assistant Professor
Position Type: Postdoctoral

Subject Area: Algebraic Topology or related field
Application Deadline: finished (posted 2016/09/23, finished 2017/05/18)
Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Department of Mathematics at The Ohio State University is accepting applications for two Research Visiting Assistant Professorships (RVAPs) in algebraic topology or related fields. Pending approval, these positions will be available effective Autumn Semester 2017. These positions are for one to three years. These RVAPs will have some teaching responsibilities, most likely teaching two courses (six contact hours) per academic year.

Qualifications: All candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field, and to present evidence of excellence in research and teaching. Appointment is contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.

The first RVAP position will be paid partially out of an AFOSR grant aimed at sheaf-theoretic approaches to cybersecurity. As such, the ideal candidate is interested in applying and/or extending methods from local homotopy theory to formal semantics, in addition to pursuing their own research agenda.

The second RVAP position will be paid partially out of an NSF-RTG grant in Algebraic Topology and its Applications. As such, the ideal candidate should be working in topology, pure or applied, or in a closely related field such as geometric group theory. For this position, the candidate must be a United States citizen or permanent resident to be eligible.
