Our research group "Algorithmic Algebra" has an opening for two five year postdoc positions (salary grade E13) starting in 2019. The positions  are funded by Prof. Bürgisser's ERC Advanced Grant "COCAN: Complexity and Condition in Algebra and Numerics" and do not involve teaching duties. The successful candidates will do independent research in at least one of the fields associated to the ERC project: numerical algorithms in algebraic geometry, random real algebraic varieties, computational (and geometric) invariant theory, complexity theory, convex optimization. 

Berlin has an abundance of activities in all areas of mathematics, fostered by the three Berlin Universities (FU, HU, TU), the research centers ECMath, Matheon, WIAS, the graduate school BMS and several collaborative research centers. Moreover, the Berlin cluster of excellence MATH+ has recently been granted. There are plenty of possibilities for collaboration with other scientists. Beyond this Berlin is an attractive and lively world city.
