Postdoc in Geometric Analysis and Differential Geometry

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, School of Engineering Sciences

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Job description

The postdoctoral fellow is expected to conduct research in the subject of geometric analysis and differential geometry and participate in the division's ongoing projects. The research includes, but is not limited to the following areas: geometric flows (such as Ricci flow and mean curvature flow), elliptic PDE (e.g. Einstein manifolds and minimal surfaces), mathematical general relativity, spectral theory, Schrödinger operators and their heat semigroups and microlocal analysis. Additionally, you will also be expected to perform up to 20% of full-time the department duties i.e., teaching, supporting PhD students, supervision of thesis students, etc.
