Position Description:    

Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University (Prague) invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in Geometry/Combinatorics.

The positions will be funded by the Primus Research Programme "Algebraic methods in discrete geometry and topology" led by Zuzana Patáková. The ideal candidates should be capable to work on problems within the framework of the grant project. Knowledge of Czech is not necessary; teaching is negotiable, but will typically consist of one or two advanced courses (in geometry, combinatorics or related area, taught in English) per year. Due to restrictions of the grant, applicants must have received their Ph.D. within the last 8 years.

The expected duration of the positions is June 1, 2021 - December 31, 2023 (negotiable).

The Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University is the leading institution in mathematics in the Czech republic, 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, including more than 10 international researchers. More information can be found at the faculty website and Dr. Patáková's website

Informal inquiries concerning the position are welcome - please email Zuzana Patáková at
