Full Professor position in Geometry/Topology at Paul Sabatier University (Toulouse 3)

The Institute of Mathematics of Toulouse (IMT) is hiring a top-level researcher specializing in geometry or topology as a full professor at Paul Sabatier University (Toulouse 3). The main selection criteria for this position will be: the scientific excellence of the application, the clarity and relevance of the research project, the ability to lead scientific activities and the adequation to teaching needs.

The candidate is expected to be a leader in a field of geometry or topology, who will come to reinforce and structure the staff of the laboratory already present in these disciplines. We can mention, among the themes in which recruitment would be relevant (non-exhaustive list): low-dimensional topology, categorical invariants, Teichmüller theory, geometric group theory, symplectic geometry... An opening towards emerging themes, such as the topological analysis of massive data, is also possible. All high-level applications in related disciplines will be given careful consideration. In addition to their personal research activities, university professors are expected to be involved in scientific animation and in research management.

Teaching in the mathematics department of Paul Sabatier University covers all aspects of the discipline, from research-oriented courses to those intended for non-specialist students. In addition to scientific expertise, the candidate should demonstrate solid teaching skills and be open to pedagogical innovation. The recruited person is expected to eventually take on teaching-related responsibilities. Teaching load is standardized over French universities and roughly equivalent to two courses per semester. Paul Sabatier University offers a teaching reduction of one third during the first two years.

The official teaching language at our department is mostly French, apart from certain Master programs which are taught in English. Only a part of the teaching duties can be done in such programs, so the candidate is expected to be able to teach in French language. Also, French regulations require the job application to be written and the interview to be held in French.

IMT is a highly reputed institute: Paul Sabatier University ranks 51-75 in the 2022 ARWU ("Shanghai") ranking for Mathematics. It offers a very rich scientific environment covering the whole of mathematics. The recruited person will be able to benefit from the opportunities offered by the Labex CIMI (International Center for Mathematics and Computer Science), by the Institute of Artificial Intelligence ANITI, or by the graduate school MINT (Mathematics and INteraction in Toulouse). In addition, Toulouse's ecosystem of applied research, both public and industrial, offers numerous opportunities for interaction. Finally, Toulouse is a very dynamic student city and benefits from a beautiful location in the south of France (an hour and a half away from the Mediterranen sea and the Pyrénées mountains).

The hiring process is managed by the national platform "Galaxie".
Submission of applications for the position: February-March 2023 (expected) Interviews: April-May 2023 (expected)
