KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

 

Job description

The research group in differential geometry and general relativity within the department of mathematics is offering a two-year postdoctoral/researcher position. This position is intended for work on projects in geometric PDE’s, classical mathematical relativity, or a combination of these subjects. By geometric PDE’s we here mean any geometrically motivated partial differential equations, which could be either elliptic, parabolic, or hyperbolic. By mathematical relativity we mean Lorentzian geometry, the study of initial data sets, problems related to evolution (stability, asymptotics, cosmic censorship), the study of horizons and trapped surfaces, static solutions, etc.

Qualifications

A PhD degree, awarded (or planned to be awarded before the commencement of the project) in mathematics is a requirement. We seek a candidate with a strong background in some of the areas described above.

The successful applicant should be strongly motivated, have the capability to work independently as well as in collaboration with members of the research group, and have good communication skills.
