The Division of Mathematics at the department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers invites applications for an assistant professor position in Arakelov Geometry. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the interaction between our research groups in Complex Analysis and Algebraic Geometry and with a research profile including

• Expertise in arithmetic algebraic geomterty/Arakelov geometry

• Analysis on moduli spaces

• Analysis on Berkovich spaces

About the Department
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg has about 170 faculty and staff and is the largest department of mathematical sciences in the Nordic countries. We teach a broad spectrum of courses across programs at the two universities. Internationally high-level research is conducted in both pure and applied mathematics, as well as mathematical statistics.

About the Division
Our research is internationally successful in areas such as algebraic geometry, number theory, algebra and representation theory, harmonic analysis and partial differential equations, computational mathematics and optimization, probability and discrete mathematics, complex analysis, functional analysis, kinetic theory and biomathematics. In recent years we have been very successful in obtaining external research funds.

At the division we also have extensive and broad experience of all aspects of higher education in mathematics.
More information about us is available on the website .

Major responsibilities
Your primary duty will be to conduct your own research in collaboration with the research groups in Complex Analysis and Algebraic Geometry. You are expected to contribute to the expansion of our international networks and to take responsibility for organizing workshops.

Duties also includes teaching for about 25 per cent of your working hours, primarily on undergraduate and master's levels, as well as supervising PhD students to some extent. The position is meritorious for future research and teaching actives within academia.

Position summary
This is a full-time temporary employment for a maximum of four years. Progress will be assessed after two years. You are expected to achieve associate professor expertise within four years.

To qualify for the position, you must have a doctoral degree in mathematics and a strong background in arithmetic algebraic geometry and analytical aspects in this context. The degree should generally not be older than five years. You are expected to be accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education. Experience from a postdoc position or qualified research is a merit as well as experience of organizing major workshops. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in Swedish and English and good ability to create relationships and promote collaboration. If Swedish is not your native language, you should be able to teach in Swedish on undergraduate level after two years. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
