Department of Algebra, Faculty of Mathematics and Physiics, Charles University, Prague, invites applications for a faculty position at the rank of an assistant professor in the areas of algebra and mathematical logic. The expected starting date is October 1, 2018 and it is negotiable.

We look for candidates that would complement and/or strengthen the current main research areas in the department (in particular, applications of algebra and logic in computational complexity, and representation theory). However, strong candidates in all areas of algebra and mathematical logic will be considered.

Informal inquiries are welcome and may be sent to Jiri Tuma (the department head), using the email address

A successful candidate will be expected to pursue an active research program, teach advanced and introductory classes in Czech and/or English and possibly supervise undergraduate and graduate students. Teaching in Czech is not required. (English is sufficient since the advanced classes may be taught in English even in standard undergraduate programs.)

The expected duration of the initial contract will be three years. Such a position is renewable under a mutual agreement for another three years (and possibly for further three years, depending on the career stage). These new contracts depend on how successfully the assistant professor carries out research and teaching duties. Then, subject to a separate review process, a promotion to the rank of associate professor is usual. This promotion is usually connected with a tenure. However, if your career is already advanced and your research record is strong, the initial period can be substantially reduced and you can progress to the promotion very fast.

A signed application, accompanied by a curriculum vitae, a proof of PhD in Mathematics (e.g. a scan of the diploma), a list of publications, a description of your pedagogical experience and a brief research statement should be sent by

March 15, 2018
via e-mail to: .

The candidate should also arrange for two letters of recommendation to be emailed to the same address.
