The Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics (KdVI) of the University of Amsterdam invites you to apply for a PhD position in Algebraic and Arithmetic Geometry. There are two projects available.

One project is under supervision of Lenny Taelman. This position is part of the ERC Consolidator grant 'Zeta functions and Fourier--Mukai transforms'. This is a project aiming to uncover the delicate relations between two central areas of algebraic geometry: derived categories of coherent sheaves, and arithmetic algebraic geometry.

The other project is under supervision of Arno Kret. This position is part of the VIDI grant 'Shimura varieties and the Langlands conjecture'. This project is about a detailed study of the arithmetic of Shimura varieties modulo prime numbers, by using the Langlands-Kottwitz method.

The UvA is an equal-opportunity employer. We prioritise diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for everyone. We value a spirit of enquiry and perseverance, provide the space to keep asking questions, and promote a culture of curiosity and creativity.
