Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematics at Aarhus University seeks candidates with excellence and vision in their research for two Associate Professor/Tenure Track Assistant Professor positions in Mathematics. Aarhus University is an international top 100 university with its campus located centrally within the city of Aarhus, Denmark. The positions are open from 1 February 2022.

In 2019 the Department of Mathematics underwent a strategy review, resulting in 10 specific goals being set for the period 2020—2025. See https://math.au.dk/en/about/strategy/. The purpose of this call is to add two new mathematicians to the scientific staff that can help the department meet its strategic goals by the year 2025.

The Department of Mathematics currently employs 30 permanent scientific staff members within the traditional mathematical disciplines and stochastics. The Department of Mathematics is a stakeholder in DIGIT, "Centre for Digitalisation, Big Data and Data Analytics" and has collaborations with BiRC, "Bioinformatics Research Centre", and CREATES, "Center for Research in Econometric Analysis of Time Series".

The successful candidate should have:
  • a sterling record of original scientific contributions to mathematics
  • a track record of independent and collaborative research
  • a documented ability and interest in taking responsibility for teaching mathematics at all levels
  • obtained, or the convincing potential to obtain, external funding for research activities
  • the potential to help the department meet its strategic goals
        See strategy at https://math.au.dk/en/about/strategy/

The successful candidate is expected to:
  • shine in international collaborative research
  • teach and develop courses taught by the department at all levels
  • supervise/co-supervise students at all levels from Bachelor to PhD
  • build and sustain a research group around her/himself through external funding
  • contribute towards the department’s strategic goals,
           See strategy at https://math.au.dk/en/about/strategy/

What the Department of Mathematics, the city of Aarhus as well as Denmark can offer the successful candidate:
  • A typical teaching load of four hours of lectures per week during the semester, plus project supervision
  • Administrative support and professional guidance for submitting grant applications
  • A positive and international work environment with a hierarchy as flat as a pancake
  • Subsidized preschool child care and a free education system from primary school up to university level
  • Universal health insurance as a resident of Denmark, including family members officially residing in Denmark
  • Five weeks paid holiday per year
  • In connection with child birth: the right to have a total of 52 weeks shared maternal/paternal leave with full or partial salary pay
Applicants should address, in the cover letter uploaded with the application, how they see their own role in relation to some of the department’s strategic goals.

We encourage all applicants to apply. However, in light of the current gender balance at the department, we particularly encourage female applicants to apply. All applicants will be assessed objectively and according to the same criteria. Note that female applicants would automatically contribute towards one of the department’s strategic goals, which is to improve gender balance.

The positions will be re-posted if there is a well-grounded presumption that a second advertise-ment will attract a more diverse and qualified pool of applicants.

The applicants may upload up to ten key publications with the application. While the assessment committee will evaluate the overall scientific achievements of all shortlisted candidates, the committee can only be expected to look into individual scientific results amongst those contained in publications submitted with the application.
