The intention of the newly founded Collaborative Research Centre (CRC TRR) 358 „Integral structures in geometry and representation theory“ - funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and based at Bielefeld, Paderborn and Bonn - is to establish an internationally visible centre of mathemat-ical research in the region of East Westphalia. The CRC pursues a broad research program in the fields of algebraic combinatorics, automorphic forms, arithmetic and complex algebraic geometry, cat-egorical representation theory, geometric group theory, harmonic analysis on locally symmetric spaces and theory of affine buildings.
The CRC TRR 358 will create an attractive research environment with many guests, seminars and workshops and offers extensive funds for business trips.
In the context of subproject C2, the following position is available at the Institute of Mathematics, part of the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mathematics at the earliest pos-sible opportunity:

Research Associate (f/m/d)
(salary is according to E 13 TV-L)

with 75% of regular working hours. This is a qualification position in the sense of the Wissen-schaftszeitvertragsgesetz (WissZeitVG), which serves to promote a doctoral procedure in the field of algebra. The position is to be filled for a limited period of time for the duration of the doctoral process, depending on the qualification achieved so far, but usually for a period of 3 years. An extension for the completion of the doctorate is possible within the time limits of the WissZeitVG.

Your Tasks:

  • Scientific collaboration within the subproject C2 „Hereditary categories, reflection groups and non-commutative curves“, in particular research in the field of tilting theory, theory of Hall alge-bras and the structure theory of non-commutative curves
  • Active participation in project-internal activities of the CRC and the working group „Algebra“
  • Participation in general work of CRC TRR 358, planning and support of general joint CRC ac-tivities

Your profile:

  • Very good scientific university degree (master’s degree)
  • Good skills of spoken and written English

Since Paderborn University seeks to increase the number of female scientists, applications of female are especially welcome. In case of equal qualification and scientific achievements, they will receive preferential treatment according to the North Rhine-Westphalian Equal Opportunities Policy (LGG), unless there are cogent reasons to give preference to another applicant. Likewise, applications of disabled people with appropriate qualification are explicitly requested. This also applies to people with equal status according to the German social law SGB IX.
