Postdoc/researcher in geometric PDEs and mathematical relativity

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s
leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of
intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and
learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the
world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and
all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management,
urban planning, history and philosophy.

Job description

The research group in differential geometry and general relativity within the department of mathematics is offering a two-year
postdoctoral/researcher position. This position is intended for work on projects in geometric PDE’s, classical mathematical
relativity, or a combination of these subjects. By geometric PDE’s we here mean any geometrically motivated partial
differential equations, which could be either elliptic, parabolic, or hyperbolic. By mathematical relativity we mean Lorentzian geometry,
the study of initial data sets, problems related to evolution (stability, asymptotics, cosmic censorship), the study of horizons
and trapped surfaces, static solutions, etc.


A PhD degree, awarded (or planned to be awarded before the commencement of the project) in mathematics is a requirement.
We seek a candidate with a strong background in some of the areas described above. The successful applicant should be strongly motivated,
have the capability to work independently as well as in collaboration with members of the research group,
and have good communication skills.


Log into KTH's recruitment system in order to apply to this position, see link below. You are the main responsible to
