Job description

A 1-year postdoc position in mathematical analysis is available at the Bernoulli Institute of the University of Groningen in The Netherlands. The position is situated in the Systems Control and Applied Analysis group and is funded by Alden Waters’ FSE research grant.

The successful candidate is expected to conduct research on theoretical or explicit aspects of the study of dispersive estimates for Maxwell’s equations.
You are also expected to interact scientifically with other research staff and students, as well as organize and participate in seminars. The position comes with a small travel budget to give research seminars at other universities.
The position comes with mild teaching duties (in English, about 10% of the appointment). Knowledge of the Dutch language is not required.
