The Department of Mathematics at Michigan State University invites applications for two RTG Postdoctoral Associate positions with a starting date of Fall 2023. This is a three-year, benefits eligible position, associated with the NSF-funded RTG project “Algebraic and Geometric Topology at Michigan State.”  Topology at MSU is represented by a vibrant group of faculty and graduate students; a group with rich interaction amongst not only its members but also with the closely connected research groups at MSU in geometry and algebra. RTG Postdoctoral Associates will be integrated into the topology group through pairing with faculty mentors, participation and co-leadership in RTG activities, vertically integrated structured research projects, thoughtful curation of teaching assignments, and engagement in the department’s active instructional mentoring program. Candidates will be evaluated on their potential in research, teaching, graduate and undergraduate mentorship, and their fit with the topology research community at MSU. Candidates are required to have a Ph.D. in Mathematics by August 10, 2023. Due to NSF rules, the position is restricted to US citizens, nationals, or permanent residents.

Some features of the RTG postdoctoral position include: 

  • Mentoring in research, teaching, and other aspects of professional development  
  • Summer support for two summers  
  • Funding in the amount of $6000 per year for travel and supplies
  • A teaching expectation of one course per semester  
  • Participation in RTG activities such as seminars, conference organization, research collaboration with graduate students and faculty, and assisting with mentoring and directed reading programs for undergraduates

Applicants should submit the following items on http://Mathjobs.org to complete your their application
