Position Description:    

The intention of the newly founded Collaborative Research Centre (CRC TRR) 358 „Integral structures in geometry and representation theory“ - funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and based at Bielefeld, Paderborn and Bonn - is to establish an internationally visible centre of mathematical research in the region of East Westphalia. The CRC pursues a broad research program in the fields of algebraic combinatorics, automorphic forms, arithmetic and complex algebraic geometry, cat-egorical representation theory, geometric group theory, harmonic analysis on locally symmetric spaces and theory of affine buildings.

The CRC TRR 358 will create an attractive research environment with many guests, seminars and workshops and offers extensive funds for business trips.

In the context of subproject A2, the following position is available at the Institute of Mathematics, part of the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mathematics at the earliest pos-sible opportunity:
