Post-Doctoral Position

 This annual call for projects will open in September 2022.

Description of the call

This program aims to support the development of research projects in mathematics and its interactions at the University of Strasbourg through the funding of post-doctoral or research engineers positions within the laboratories of the Interdisciplinary Thematic Institute IRMIA++.

Content of the application

The application is a scientific project in English, submitted by a member of the ITI IRMIA++. It is made up of the following elements:

  • Title of the project
  • Contact details of the project leader(s),
  • Description of the research project, its challenges and its scientific context, 1 to 2 pages. The project may be co-written by the project leader and the applicant, or written solely by the applicant. If the project is written by the applicant alone, the project supervisor must attach a confidential letter of support, detailing the planned collaborations, and committing to act as a referee.
  • Appendices: bibliography, CV of the project leader, CV of the applicant.

PDF files should not exceed 5 pages (excluding appendices).  They must be sent by email to iti-irmiapp[at]unistra.fr before 24 November 2021.

Selection criteria

The first selection criterion will be the high scientific quality of the project. The call is open to projects in fundamental mathematics which will be evaluated on this criterion alone. However, for this 2021 call, priority will be given to interdisciplinary projects involving mathematics. These interdisciplinary projects must either involve a mathematician from IRMA (as a participant or as a potential collaborator) or else expose the potential interactions with the themes present at IRMA. The projects may propose concrete ways of interacting or bringing about interactions (working groups,...).

Please note that candidates who have completed their PhD under the supervision or co-supervision of an ITI IRMIA++ research member are not eligible.

    Conditions

    These are 1-year research positions only (no teaching), renewable once . The salary will be about 2250 euros net per month.

    If they wish, the post-doctoral fellows will have the possibility to teach in the courses of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department or of another component within the framework of the collaborations of the Interdisciplinary Thematic Institute IRMIA++.
