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 mathe-
matical 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.

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.
