Updated: about 13 hours ago

The Department of Mathematics of Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan (Israel) is now accepting
applications for postdoctoral research positions to begin in October 2020. Each postdoctoral fellow
will be hosted by one of the faculty members listed below. Candidates must hold a PhD, or expect
to be awarded one by the end of the calendar year, and at the time of appointment must be no
more than 5 years from receiving their PhD.

These postdoctoral positions focus on research and carry no teaching responsibilities. Funding is
available through faculty members' research grants, the Israel Academy of Sciences and
Humanities (IASH) , the PBC Fellowship Program , the Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholars
Program , and other external sources. Positions are initially for two years with an option for
renewal, subject to funding availability.

Bar-Ilan University is located in a suburb of Tel Aviv in central Israel. Tel Aviv University, the
Weizmann Institute of Science, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem are all within easy
reach, creating a large and active local mathematical community. It is common for
mathematicians from Israel's many universities to organize joint seminars, conferences, and
reading groups.

Applications can be submitted online or sent to the email address provided below and should include:

  • Cover letter
  • Name(s) of prospective host(s)
