Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed. ***

The UvA’s Faculty of Science is launching a major recruitment campaign called ‘Connecting Science’ in the areas of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer Science. Our ambition is to attract top talent from all over the world to a large number of newly created faculty positions in a wide range of exciting scientific directions. We offer a stimulating environment and excellent conditions for research, tightly connected to challenging educational programmes.

We are looking for ambitious and motivated scientists to connect different scientific disciplines. Our goal is to have a maximal impact on science and society.

Research area

In recent years the group has focused on describing the computational complexity of graph theoretical concepts arising from statistical physics. Examples include the partition functions of the hardcore, Ising and Potts models, important physical concepts closely related to deep combinatorial quantities such as proper colorings of graphs and clustering in networks. The research in this direction closely connects discrete mathematics to statistical physics, theoretical computer science, dynamical systems, and stochastic networks. As a consequence the discrete mathematics group currently closely collaborates with the dynamical systems group of the KdV Institute.

Strong candidates working in any direction of discrete mathematics are encouraged to apply for this tenure track position. Affinity with dynamical systems is considered a plus, but not a requirement.

The Korteweg-de Vries Institute strives for a better gender balance in its staff. We therefore strongly encourage women to apply for this position. Further information
