The Group of Science, Engineering and Technology, Faculty of Science, Department of Mathematics of KU Leuven, invites scholars to apply for a full‐time research professorship in the Section of Analysis. We are looking for motivated and internationally oriented candidates with an excellent research record and with educational competence in the field of mathematical analysis and probability theory. The appointment is expected to start on October 1, 2023. This position is funded by the Special Research Fund (BOFZAP), established by the Flemish Government. During the first 10 years, the teaching obligations as a research professor will be limited. Afterwards, the position will be transformed into a regular professorship.

The candidate develops a research programme with a focus on mathematical analysis, probability theory, random matrices, or closely related research directions. The current research in the Section of Analysis focuses on random matrices, orthogonal polynomials, operator algebras and ergodic theory. We are looking for candidates who have both a clear connection to one of these research directions, as a profile that is complementary to the present expertise. Starting up collaborations with other research directions within KU Leuven is a plus.

Depending on their qualifications and academic experience, the candidate will be appointed to or tenured in one of the grades of the senior academic staff: assistant professor, associate professor, professor or full professor. In principle, junior researches are appointed as assistant professor on the tenure track for a period of 5 years; after this period and a positive evaluation, they are permanently appointed as an associate professor.
