Position Description:    

Postdoctoral supervisor: Dr. Bojan Mohar

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship position in discrete mathematics starting in May 2024 (a delayed starting date can be negotiated). The applications are open to candidates of any nationality and selection will be based upon the candidate's research potential. 

It is expected that candidates hold a PhD degree at the moment of employment. The doctoral degree is in mathematics or in related fields (CS or physics) with strong mathematical component. A background and interest in some of the following fields is desired: 
  • structural graph theory; 
  • geometric graph theory; 
  • random networks; 
  • discrete geometry. 
The selected candidate will participate in the research through the ERC Synergy grant KARST, https://erc-karst.eu/, and will also be able to continue with their ongoing research work in related areas. 
The position is for 12-24 months with possible extension for another year. The candidate will be able to split time between the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia and the Simon Fraser University in Canada. 

The fellowship will provide an annual salary in the range 38.000 - 42.500 EUR, depending on previous experience and subject to some strict regulations. There is also a 3,000 EUR allowance for travel and research expenses. 

To apply, do the following: 
  • send an email to sergio.cabello@fmf.uni-lj.si with subject "postdoc KARST" including a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and a research statement;
  • arrange that at least three letters of reference are sent to sergio.cabello@fmf.uni-lj.si with subject "postdoc KARST". The letters should be sent directly by the recommender or their administrative assistants. 
The call is open-ended until a suitable candidate is found. The first selection process will start on April 2, 2024 and all applications received by that date will be evaluated together.

We are not accepting applications for this job through MathJobs.Org right now. Please see the job description above on how to apply.
