The Department of Algebra of the Charles University in Prague, Czechia, is opening a position of associate professor in the fields of logic, model theory, universal algebra, and their computational aspects.

Applications are invited from candidates with an excellent international reputation and publishing activity in some of the above fields. We expect a positive attitude towards pedagogical work, ability to integrate scientific activities, teaching and supervision of student theses, including training of doctoral students. A long-term foreign experience is expected.

The position bears a formal qualification requirement of habilitation. This means a Czech title of docent, or a comparable foreign academic degree. For example, German Privatdozent, or a position of associate professor at a renowned US university.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University is the leading Czech institution in mathematics. The School of Mathematics has about 110 academic positions, covering most of the major areas. We have highly motivated and well educated students in our mathematics programs. The Department of Algebra offers an open minded international environment, with outstanding conditions for independent research. Currently, we have 16 permanent and 10 postdoctoral positions, with more than a third held by international researchers. The department hosts a project funded by the European Research Council on Symmetry in Computational Complexity (Libor Barto). More information about us can be found at the faculty website or the department website.
