*** The account for Chair of Analysis and Mathematical Physics, EPFL - Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne has expired and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The Chair of Analysis and Mathematical Physics at the Institute of Mathematics at EPFL welcomes applications for a postdoctoral position.

The appointment will be primarily based on excellent scientific contributions and outstanding research potential in mathematical physics performed by analytical methods. Areas of research interest at the chair, which will be headed by Prof. Marius Lemm as of September 1, 2020, are the spectral theory of Schrödinger operators, homogenization theory, quantum spin systems, quantum information theory, and random matrices. The teaching load for the postdoctoral fellow is comparatively light and entails serving as teaching assistant for 1 course per semester and advising a small number of undergraduate theses.

English is the main language spoken at EPFL, and Lausanne is highly international, so no French language skills are required. EPFL is committed to being an equal opportunity employer.

The start date is flexible and is expected to lie between October 1, 2020 and June 1, 2021. The contract is initially for 1 year and renewable up to 4 years. Review of applications will begin on September 1, 2020. Applications received after this date will still be considered if the position is not filled yet.

To be considered complete, a candidate's application should include the following documents:

  • Cover letter
  • CV
  • Doctoral diploma (alternatively an official note from the current institution stating the date when the doctoral degree is expected)
  • Research statement (up to 3 pages)
  • Contact Information of 3 references (a single PDF file containing the names, affiliations, and email addresses of 3 references)

If the applicant has reference letter writers already registered at mathjobs.org, then for the sake of simplicity, instead of submitting their contact information, the applicant is encouraged to attach their reference letters directly through mathjobs.org in the usual way. (No advantage is given to applicants for using either method.)
