Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University (Prague) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Number Theory.

The position will be funded by Dr. Kala's project "UFOCLAN: Universal Quadratic Forms and Class Numbers" awarded by the Czech Science Foundation. Knowledge of Czech is not necessary; teaching is negotiable, but will typically consist of one advanced course (in number theory or related area, taught in English) per semester. Due to restrictions of the grant agency, applicants must have received their Ph.D. within the last 8 years (exceptions are possible in cases of parental leave and long-term sickness).

The expected duration of the position is June 1, 2021 - August 31, 2023 (negotiable).
