Umeå is a young city located right next to a large river. It is surrounded by forests and lakes and lies close to the sea. The city offers excellent opportunities for both outdoor and indoor activities. The department has about 100 employees and conducts research in computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, mathematical modeling and analysis, and mathematical statistics.

If you find this opportunity interesting, contact Associate Professor Karl Larsson ( for further information. Selected candidates would work with the department to prepare and submit an application to the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, which is expected to fund the position.
