Post-doc in Lille

By the recently obtained ERC Consolidator Grant on motivic integration, starting spring 2014, I can hire several postdocs between now and 2019. The (prolongable) contracts will be of one-year length each.

Note that the planned research on motivic integration and exponential sums involves techniques and results from algebraic and non-archimedean geometry, model theory, harmonic analysis, number theory, singularity theory, and there are applications to the Langlands Program. Hence, a broad range of talents and specialisms can fit into the research program.

Any interested person may contact me directly via email.

Tenure-track position, Wesleyan University

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Wesleyan University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professorship in mathematics to begin in the fall of 2019. We seek strong candidates in all areas of mathematical logic, especially those whose research interests connect with the interests of current members of the department. However, exceptional candidates in any field compatible with the research interests of the faculty are also encouraged to submit an application.

Wesleyan University is a leading liberal arts school with approximately 3000 students, located halfway between Boston and New York and also halfway between Hartford and New Haven. The university has graduate programs leading to doctoral and master's degrees in the sciences and ethnomusicology. The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science awards the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics, and the MA degrees in Mathematics as well as Computer Science. There are 13 mathematicians and 7 computer scientists in the department, not including visitors and postdocs, as well as approximately 17 graduate students. The low student to faculty ratio ensures close contact between faculty and graduate students. Wesleyan values both scholarship and teaching very highly, has a strong, diverse undergraduate student body, and offers a generous sabbatical program and competitive salaries and benefits.

Teaching duties will be two courses in each semester, typically including a graduate-level course. Additional duties include advising and mentoring students, and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university levels.
