The Director of the Center for Theoretical Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences invites applications for two postdoc positions at the CTP PAS, financed from the project "SCREAM: Symmetry, Curvature Reductions and EquivAlence Methods" DEC-2019/34/H/ST1/00636 (GRIEG).
The principal investigator of the project is prof. dr hab. Paweł Nurowski.
We are looking for two candidates with a PhD degree in mathematics or related areas, and with research experience in differential geometry and (or) mathematical physics. The candidates should have a strong background in differential geometry and in at least one of the following fields: differential systems, structural theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras, the theory of relativity, conformal or projective geometry. An interest in theoretical cosmology and (or) geometric control theory would be desirable. Computational skills in symbolic computer programming will be needed for carrying out the project. The successful candidates will take part in an international collaboration between Poland and Norway. The list of specific problems to be adressed within the project can be found under the link:
We expect that the chosen scientists will actively participate in the realization of the project. Other duties will involve organization of seminars, conferences, and educational activities related to the dissemination of the project’s results.
