Jobs at the Department of Mathematics
The Chair of Geometry / Algebra (Prof. Ruth Kellerhals) at the Depart- ment of Mathematics of the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) invites applications for the position of
Assistant professor non-tenure track in Algebra and Geometry
(80 - 100%)
(Oberassistenz resp. Maître Assistant(e))
TIt is part of the duties of the assistant professor to teach up to 4 hours a week on all levels, including service courses, mainly in algebra and geometry. An intensive research activity in a domain between algebra and geometry such as geometric and combinatorial group theory, geometry of numbers, arithmetic lattices and spaces of negative curvature, is expected. The suc- cessful candidate will supervise master theses, organise student seminars, and participate in the scientific and administrative organisation of the chair and the department.
The successful candidate must be in possession of a Ph.D. in pure mathe- matics and show strong promise of excellence in research and teaching.
The position starts August 1, 2015, and is limited to 5 years. The can- didates must be fluent in German or French with a good understanding of the other language (after a convenient time of adaptation, if necessary).
Please send your application, including a letter of motivation, a CV, a concise statement of research and teaching interests, as well as the names and addresses (including email) of at least 3 references, by email to Prof. Ruth Kellerhals, email@example.com. The deadline for the application is May 31, 2015.
