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

 A postdoctoral position is available in the research group of Hisham Sati at New York University Abu Dhabi. The proposed research would ideally be interdisciplinary on the interactions between topology, geometry and physics, but emphasis on one area, e.g. algebraic topology, is also possible. The research position is initially for two years, but extensions to longer terms are possible upon review. Research funds will be made available and there will also be opportunities for (co-)teaching and (co-)mentoring of students. 

The candidate must hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics or a relevant field, and ideally will have expertise in at least one of the following areas: homotopy theory, higher differential geometry, mathematical physics. Previous projects with postdocs were on differential refinements of generalized cohomology theories and their applications in physics (Daniel Grady) and on parametrized homotopy theory in physics (Vincent Braunack-Mayer). The current project can be in one of several related directions, depending on the candidate. 

We have an active research group, which includes Urs Schreiber as another senior member. 

The start date for the position will be August 2021 and screening will begin in March 2021. 

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 through in PDF format: 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.
