The Department of Mathematics of BarIlan University in
Ramat Gan (Israel) is now accepting applications
for postdoctoral research positions to begin in October 2020. Each postdoctoral fellow will be hosted by one of the faculty members listed below.
Candidates must hold
a PhD, or expect to be awarded one by the end of the calendar year, and at the time of appointment must be no more than 5 years from receiving their
PhD.
These postdoctoral positions focus on research and carry no teaching
responsibilities. Funding is available through faculty members' research
grants, the
Israel
Academy of Sciences and Humanities (IASH), the
PBC Fellowship Program, the Zuckerman
Postdoctoral Scholars Program, and other external sources.
Positions are initially for two years with an option for renewal, subject to funding availability.
BarIlan University is located in a suburb of Tel Aviv in central Israel. Tel Aviv University, the Weizmann Institute of Science, and the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem are all within easy reach, creating a large and active local mathematical community. It is common for mathematicians from Israel's many universities to organize joint seminars, conferences, and reading groups.
Applications can be submitted online or sent to the email address provided below and should include:
 Cover letter
 Name(s) of prospective host(s)
 Curriculum vitae
 3 letters of recommendation sent directly (not by the applicant)
Review of applications will begin December 15, 2019 and continue
until positions are filled.
