Application Deadline: (posted 2022/10/21, listed until 2023/04/21)
Position Description:    

A one year postdoctoral position is available at the University of Haifa June 1, 2023 until May 31, 2024. The postdoc will be funded by an BSF/NSF project of Oren Ben-Bassat (University of Haifa) and Tony Pantev (University of Pennsylvania). This is a research position with no teaching duties and aside from the stipend includes opportunities to visit the University of Pennsylvania. There is no guarantee of a second year, although applications for further funding can be explored during the first year. 

The main goal of the project is to understand arithmetic dualities in the context of derived geometry and quantum field theory. Topics of interest are Banach algebraic geometry, arithmetic topology (knots / primes analogy), moduli stacks of local systems, and moduli stacks of Galois representations. Familiarity with lower/higher category theory is important. 

Consideration of applications will begin on November 7, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. Please send your application or reach out to Oren Ben-Bassat at if interested.

Include the following material: 
3 reference letters 
1 cover letter
