Postdoc Positions in Differential Geometry KU Leuven, Leuven Geometry Section Belgium

POSTDOC POSITIONS IN DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY



We offer a 2 year postdoc position funded by the FWO project "The Geometry of Singular Foliations". The principal investigators are Prof. Marco Zambon and Dr. Ori Yudilevich. The project is aimed at the study of singular foliations (e.g. the holonomy groupoid of a singular foliation, (Riemannian) Lie groupoids, sheaves of Lie algebras of vector fields, etc) and connections with Poisson geometry (in the broad sense). The research interests of the candidate should have an overlap with these topics. The members of the KU Leuven geometry section work on topics related to Poisson/symplectic geometry on one side, and to Riemannian geometry and submanifold theory on the other. KU Leuven, situated in an historic university town, features an excellent mathematics department providing a stimulating research environment.
