Post-doctoral Research Fellowship in Mathematics

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellowship in
Mathematics, within the scope of the Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT)
project "New Geometry and Topology" (PTDC/MAT/101503/2008), focused on
categorification, gerbes, quantum topology and quantum gravity.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mathematics (or equivalent) obtained
preferably after January 1, 2008, and must show very strong promise in
the following research areas (in order of preference):
1) Categorification (categorified quantum groups, knot homologies etc.);
2) Gerbes.

Currently the PhD members of the project are: Rui Carpentier, Pedro Lopes,
Marco Mackaay,
Joao Faria Martins, Roger Picken, Goncalo Rodrigues, Paulo Semiao, Marko Stosic
and Pedro
Vaz. For more information about the project members' interests, please consult
the
publications page of our previous project:

The position is for one year to start before the end of 2010, with the
possibility of an extension for a second year subject to mutual
agreement and budget approval. The salary is currently 17940 euros per
annum, free of tax, with a minimum of 750 euros per annum support for
conference participation. There are no teaching duties attached to the

Picken (rpicken@math.ist.utl.pt) as soon as possible, and should
include a curriculum vitae and a research statement. Three letters of
reference should also be sent directly to the same email address. All
messages received will be acknowledged. The closing date for applications is
