Postdoc scholarship in Mathematics - Integrable systems

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s
leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of
intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and
learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the
world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and
all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management,
urban planning, history and philosophy.

The workplace

The School of Engineering Sciences carries out a wide range of research at the
international front line, from fundamental disciplines such as Physics and
Mathematics, to Engineering Mechanics with applications such as Aeronautics and
Vehicle Engineering. We also offer university degree programs in Engineering
Physics, Vehicle Engineering, and 'Open entrance', as well as a number of

Project description

A postdoctoral scholarship in the area of integrable systems is offered within the KTH
mathematics department. The project, which runs for a maximum of two years, will take
place under the supervision of Dr. Jonatan Lenells and will involve the study of integrable
partial differential equations and/or other topics consistent with the research interests of the
supervisor (such as Riemann-Hilbert problems, asymptotic analysis, random matrix theory,
spectral theory, statistical models). There are no teaching duties.


A PhD degree, awarded (or planned to be awarded before the commencement of the project) in
mathematics is a requirement. The PhD degree must have been obtained within 5 years from
the start date. The successful applicant should be strongly motivated, have the capability
to work independently as well as in collaboration with members of the research group, and
have good communication skills. KTH is an equal opportunity employer, which in particular means
