Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

Two postdoctoral positions are available within the ANR project COSY: "New challenges in contact and symplectic topology". These are research-only appointments (without teaching) for one year starting in October 2024 (with some limited flexibility). As is usual in Europe, this employment comes with benefits including health insurance and social coverage. Funds will also be provided for traveling and inviting collaborators.

The successful candidate will be expected to interact with some researchers in contact and symplectic topology who are members of the project (for more details on the project and its members, see For this reason, the scientific project should explain how the applicant plans to integrate one of the institutions listed on the project website; to this end, applicants are invited to contact directly the members with whom they want to interact.

Applications are welcome in all themes of contact and symplectic topology. The scientific projects are expected to emphasize the connections with the two broad themes of COSY: Lefschetz fibrations and open book decompositions, and persistent homology.


For holders of a Ph.D in mathematics obtained before October 1st, 2024.


Applications must be complete (including all reference letters) by December 31st, 2023.
