Postdoctoral position at the University of Iceland

Benedikt Magnússon, November 16, 2015

There is a three-year postdoctoral position available at the University of Iceland financed by The Icelandic Centre for Research, rannis.is.

The research project is called: Complex Analysis with Emphasis on Pluripotential Theory.

We are mainly interested in the theory of holomorphic and plurisubharmonic functions and we are especially interested in applications of the L^2 method for constructing holomorphic
functions.

We are looking for a candidate who has completed a PhD within the last 5 years or is close to defending a PhD thesis. Her/his specialization and interests should be in this area.

Everyone is welcome to contact us for further information.

Applications should be sent to us directly by e-mail, including a CV, list of publication or an abstract of a planned PhD thesis, and a research statement. The names and e-mail addresses of two referees should be included, a thesis advisor should be one of them.

The application deadline is December 31. All applications will be answered.

The starting time for the position is a matter of agreement.
