Position Description:    

Department of Algebra, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University (Prague)

... invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in homological algebra, commutative algebra or representation theory of associative algebras.

Each positions will be funded by one of the projects awarded by the Czech Science Foundation: "Symmetries, dualities and approximations in derived algebraic geometry and representation theory" (PI: Jan Stovicek) and "Cohen-Macaulay rings and their applications in higher algebra and topology" (PI: Liran Shaul). There are no teaching duties and knowledge of Czech is not necessary.

Applicants should have working knowledge of homological algebra, and experience with derived categories is preferred. Applicants with experience in the theory of ring spectra are also welcome to apply.

Due to restrictions of the grant agency, applicants must have received their Ph.D. within the last 8 years excluding maternity and parental leave, and sick leave in the case of a long-term illness. The applicant funded by Dr. Shaul's grant also must not exceed 35 years in 2019.

The expected duration of the position is July 1, 2021 - December 31, 2022 (the starting and ending dates are negotiable).

The Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University is leading institution in mathematics in Czechia, with highly motivated and well educated students in our mathematics programs. The School of Mathematics has about 110 academic positions, covering most of the major areas of mathematics.

The Department of Algebra, where the position will be hosted, offers an open minded international environment, with outstanding conditions for independent research. We currently have about 15 permanent and 10 postdoctoral positions, with over a third of these positions held by international researchers.

Electronic application accompanied by

  • curriculum vitae (including a list of publications)
  • research statement

should be sent via e-mail to; informal inquiries concerning the position are welcome.

The candidate should arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the same address.

Review of candidates will begin on May 16, 2021, although late applications may be considered.
