The Centre for Quantum Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Southern Denmark (SDU) seeks outstanding candidates to fill a number of three year assistant professor positions in Quantum Mathematics with emphasis on pure mathematics with relations to quantum theory.

The targeted starting date of the position is 1 August 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter. Application deadline: 1 February 2021.

The Centre for Quantum Mathematics (QM) is located at the Faculty of Science on the international campus in Odense, Denmark, which among other activities is hosting the ERC-Synergy Grant “Recursive and Exact New Quantum Theory” with the Head of QM Centre, Professor Jørgen Ellegaard Andersen as corresponding PI.

QM is newly established with the ambition to create a highly international and interdisciplinary group within a broad spectrum of pure mathematics and mathematical physics. Odense is a fast-growing international community with an open Scandinavian culture, affordable housing and living costs.

Job description A successful candidate will drive internationally competitive research, collaborate with the world community in the field, and attract competitive external research funding. The candidates are expected to contribute significantly to QM’s excellent research and teaching environment and to provide outstanding education.

We offer We offer an inspirational international research environment with excellent facilities and strong collaborations with a vast international network, research organizations and regulatory stakeholders.
