Postdoctoral Researcher in Algebraic Topology

The Department of Mathematics at Radboud University (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to join their algebraic topology group and work on a project in homotopy theory.

The successful candidate will work on a project related to equivariant obstruction theory with Dr. Magdalena Kedziorek. The position is funded for two years, with the possibility of an extension for another year. Although there is no teaching load, participation in teaching activities is advised (for up to 10% of the time). During the period, candidates will be encouraged to take part in the activities of the algebraic topology group and the mathematical community in general by participating in conferences, workshops, and seminars. They will be expected to communicate their findings through publications in peer-reviewed journals, mentor PhD candidates, help organize seminars and workshops, and teach bachelor’s and master’s students.
