Postdoctoral in Algebraic Geometry


Royal Institute of Technology, School of Engineering


KTH is one of Europe's leading technical universities and an important arena for knowledge development. As Sweden's largest university of technical research and education, we gather students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers both natural sciences and all branches of technology as well as architecture, industrial economics, social planning, technical history and philosophy.


The School of Engineering studies the frontline research in a broad field, from research in basic subjects such as physics and mathematics, to technical mechanics with applications in aeronautics and vehicle technology. The school operates and develops the Master of Science in Engineering, Physical Physics and Vehicle Technology, as well as the open program and several master programs.



The Department of Mathematics at the Royal Institute of Technology, together with Knut and Alice Wallenberg's Foundation, announces a full-time postdoctoral service in the field of algebraic geometry. The service is scheduled for two years by 1 July 2018. Mentor is David Rydh.


The research should be within algebraic geometry or related subjects. Special emphasis should be on one of the following areas: algebraic stacks, module spaces, logarithmic geometry, equivariate geometry, derived algebraic geometry, derived and triangulated categories, tannako categories, birational geometry, motifs, arithmetic geometry or nonarchimed geometry.


The senior researchers in Algebraic Geometry at KTH are Mats Boij, Sandra Di Rocco, David Rydh and Roy Skjelnes. There is close cooperation with researchers in algebraic topology and with the algebra, geometry and topology group at Stockholm University. The postdoctor is expected to work with these groups, contribute to a living research environment, and actively participate in seminars and other activities. The service has no teaching requirements.


 K Validations


Doctoral degree in mathematics is required and must have been received (or scheduled to be received before the start date of the service) from a foreign university. The applicant should have a strong background in algebraic geometry. The applicant should be highly motivated, able to work independently as well as in collaboration with the members of the research group, and have good communication skills in English.
