Postdoc in algebraic geometry

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, School of Engineering Sciences

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.

Job description

The department of mathematics is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of Algebraic Geometry. The position is for two years and the starting date is Sep 1, 2022 or earlier. The position is financed by a grant from the Göran Gustafsson Foundation and will be with David Rydh as mentor. The main duty is research within algebraic geometry or a closely related subject. The following research areas are of particular interest: algebraic stacks, moduli spaces, (reductive or non-reductive) geometric invariant theory, logarithmic geometry, derived algebraic geometry, derived categories, motives, arithmetic geometry and non-archimedean geometry. A limited amount of teaching and some administration may be part of the duties. The permanent members of the algebraic geometry group at KTH are Mats Boij, Kathlén Kohn, Sandra Di Rocco, David Rydh and Roy Skjelnes. There is a close collaboration with the algebraic topology group at KTH and the algebra, geometry and topology group at Stockholm University. The successful candidate is expected to interact with these groups, contribute to a vivid research atmosphere and actively partake in seminars and other activities.
