Postdoc position

We currently invite applications for a Postdoc position in the group in Geometric Group Theory and Complex Geometry run by JProf. Dr. Claudio Llosa Isenrich at the KIT. The starting date for the advertised position is October 2022. Payment is according to the wage agreement of the civil service TV-L of salary level E13. The duration for funding is 2 years, with a possible 1 year extension to 3 years. Teaching duties comprise four hours per week during the teaching period (mid-October to mid-February and mid-April to end of July).

We are particularly interested in candidates whose research interests lie in geometric group theory, fundamental groups of compact Kähler manifolds, geometric topology, and related areas.

You have the opportunity to become an associated fellow in the DFG Research Training Group “Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces” (RTG 2229) funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and jointly run by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Heidelberg University. You can thus benefit from the RTG’s funding possibilities as well as from its intensive guest and qualification program.

Applications should be received by 17th June 2022. However the position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been identified.

Please submit your application as a single pdf file to claudio.llosa@kit.edu. Applications should include a cover letter, CV, research statement, and a list of publications and preprints. You can also include a copy of your PhD thesis (or an extended abstract if the thesis is not yet completed). Furthermore, we ask for at least two recommendation letters to be sent directly to the email address above.
