Applications are invited for two 36 month postdocs, one funded by the ERC grant `Homological mirror symmetry, Hodge theory, and symplectic topology’, and one funded by the Simons Collaboration on Homological Mirror Symmetry. The intended start date is 1st September 2020; other dates can be mutually agreed.

We invite applicants with a broad range of backgrounds in symplectic and algebraic geometry to apply.
