Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) invites applications for a

Postdoc position

as part of a new research group in Algebraic and Geometric Topology run by Dr. Manuel Krannich (to be established in April 2022). The starting date for the advertised position is flexible between April and November 2022. Payment is according to the wage agreement of the civil service TV-L of salary level E13. The duration for funding is 2 years, with a possible 1 year extension to 3 years. Teaching duties comprise four hours per week during the teaching period (midst of October to early February and middle of April to end of July). No knowledge of German is required.

We are especially interested in candidates whose research interests lie in geometric topology, homotopy theory, topology of moduli spaces, and related areas.

You have the opportunity to become an associated fellow in the DFG Research Training Group “Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces” (RTG 2229) funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and jointly run by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Heidelberg University. You can thus benefit from the RTG’s funding possibilities as well as from its intensive guest and qualification program.

Applications should be received by 20th November 2021. However the position will remain open until suitable candidates have been identified.

Please submit your application as a single pdf file to manuel.krannich@partner.kit.edu. Applications should include a cover letter, CV, research statement, list of publications and preprints, copy of PhD thesis (or an extended abstract if the thesis is not yet completed), copies of academic degrees and transcripts of records. Further, we ask for at least two recommendation letters to be sent directly to the email address above.

KIT strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment. We therefore particularly encourage female candidates to apply for this position.
