The Centre for Quantum Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Southern Denmark (SDU) invites applications for a number of positions as associate professor in Quantum Mathematics with emphasis on pure mathematics with relations to quantum theory.

The targeted starting date of the position is 1 August 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter. Application deadline: 1 February 2021.

The Centre for Quantum Mathematics (QM) is located at the Faculty of Science on the international campus in Odense, Denmark, which among other activities is hosting the ERC-Synergy Grant “Recursive and Exact New Quantum Theory” with the Head of the QM Centre, Professor Jørgen Ellegaard Andersen as corresponding PI.

The QM centre is newly established with the ambition to create a highly international and interdisciplinary group within a broad spectrum of pure mathematics and mathematical physics. Odense is a fast-growing international community with an open Scandinavian culture, affordable housing and living costs.

Job description A successful candidate will drive internationally competitive research, collaborate with the world community in the field, and attract competitive external research funding. The candidates are expected to contribute significantly to QM’s research and teaching environment, to provide outstanding education, supervise bachelor’s, master’s and PhD level students, as well as to contribute to the development of junior researchers to meet high international standards.

The candidates will get the opportunity to shape this development together with the team and implement research-project ideas with national and international impact. Topics of interest are: Algebra, algebraic geometry, differential geometry, algebraic topology, complex geometry, quantum topology, geometric analysis, operator algebra, number theory and mathematical physics.

We offer We offer an inspirational international research environment with excellent facilities and strong collaborations with a vast international network, research organizations and regulatory stakeholders. We offer a number of positions from which to further develop the mathematical foundations for quantum theory and to combine this pure mathematical initiative with an ambitious build-up in the theoretical foundations of quantum field theory and string theory and further in the theoretical foundations of quantum engineering. We also offer the opportunity to shape our educational programmes to benefit from new developments in pedagogical approaches and content.

We expect The candidates must possess research qualifications and teaching skills corresponding to those obtained after a successful completion of a period of employment as an assistant professor or equivalent academic qualifications. The candidates must have a PhD degree in pure mathematics or mathematical physics. The candidates must furthermore have an emerging research track in the field, evidence of excellent teaching at undergraduate and graduate level (e.g. teaching evaluations, awards, having completed pedagogical and supervision courses), evidence of project/s participation with competitive research funding (at the national and/or international level).

We are seeking highly motivated candidates, who work and communicate well in an international team. The candidates must be able to carry out independent and rigorous work at top international level.

We are looking for candidates with experience and competences in several of the following: • Mentoring and coaching students in projects and theses. • Ability to work in national and international projects. • A relevant international network for research and collaboration activities. • Experience in performing research management activities, editorial experience, planning and running conferences or workshops, etc. • Experience in attracting and managing externally funded projects with multiple partners (e.g. EU projects).

Fluency in English is required. Knowledge of Danish is not a prerequisite for application. The hired candidate will be offered Danish courses by the university.
