Postdoctoral Position
Hisham Sati’s Topology and Geometry Research Group
NYU Abu Dhabi

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the research group of Hisham Sati at New York University Abu Dhabi. The proposed research can be interdisciplinary on the interactions between topology, geometry and physics, but emphasis on one area, especially topology, is also possible. The research-only position is for two years with a possible extension to a third year.

The candidate must hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics or a relevant field, and must have a strong background in algebraic topology, preferably generalized cohomology. The ideal candidate will have expertise in homotopy theory, and possibly also higher differential geometry and/or mathematical physics, but the latter is not a must. The ongoing project with the current continuing postdoc Daniel Grady is on differential refinements of generalized cohomology theories and their applications in physics. The proposed project can either be closely related or proceed in a complementary direction.

NYU Abu Dhabi offers a stimulating research environment led by a distinguished research community and supported by state-of-the-art research facilities.

The terms of employment are very competitive. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and candidates will be considered until the position is filled. To be considered, all applicants must submit a cover letter summarizing research experience and specifying the interests in this position, a curriculum vitae (including a list of publications), a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation.
