Strong applicants in all areas covered by the research groups of the department will be considered. In particular there will be postdoc stipends in the following specific areas/centers of the Department:

  • Algebra, topology, operator algebra, and non-commutative geometry as covered by the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation.
  • The VILLUM Center of excellence for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory (QMATH) focusing on mathematical physics and quantum information theory. The center offers the possibility to work in close collaboration with theoretical and experimental activities at the Niels Bohr Institute. For more information, please contact Professors Matthias Christandl, Bergfinnur Durhuus, or Jan Philip Solovej.
  • Copenhagen Causality Lab covering such research topics as causal inference for stochastic dynamical systems, partially observed systems, invariant prediction and graphical models. See for more information.
  • There are also some postdoc stipends available which are not attached to any of the above mentioned centers/grants.
