The Danish Institute for Advanced Study (DIAS) seeks to fill eight tenure track positions at the assistant professor level. DIAS assistant professor tenure track positions run for up to six years, after which tenure will be offered subject to positive evaluations and reviews. The successful candidate must have an international profile and a strong emerging record of research and funding excellence as well as novel ideas with a clear potential to expand our frontiers of knowledge. DIAS is growing, and this call is in fact the first of five calls: DIAS will hire a minimum of five research fellows at the assistant professor level per year for the next five years (2024-2028). Thus, DIAS is looking to hire a total of 25-35 assistant professors. We consider this a unique opportunity to hire top talent, to offer exceptional opportunities for outstanding researchers, and to attract “rising stars” to our ambitious and interdisciplinary environment.  The positions are joint positions at DIAS and a department at one of the five faculties at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). The candidate will thus have two affiliations — DIAS and the department — and is expected to contribute to both. Tenure will be offered in the department with continued affiliation with DIAS In line with DIAS’s unique and ambitious research aims, DIAS assistant professors have reduced teaching obligations compared to a regular assistant professor position at SDU. Likely, the assistant professor will also receive startup or seed funding from the department, though this is subject to negotiation in the hiring process.  For this position we are looking for candidates with a strong track record in pure mathematics or theoretical physics. You would join the Centre for Quantum Mathematics (QM), a newly established centre with the ambition to create a highly international and interdisciplinary group within a broad spectrum of pure mathematics and mathematical physics including applications to quantum computing.


Deadline: 1 March 2024.
