Postdoctoral position offering (24 months)

General information

The DIMERS project, funded by the French National Agency for Research, is dedicated to the study of combinatorial and probabilistic aspects of dimer and related models from statistical physics.

It offers a two-year postdoc to be started during the fall 2020. The successful applicant will join the research activity of the DIMERS project members. There is no teaching duty.

The salary offered will be around 2200 euros per month depending on experience. We will also provide the postdoc with some travel money (around 1500 euros per year) and a laptop if necessary.

The candidate should have a strong background in at least one of the following subjects: probability theory, algebraic combinatorics, theoretical physics. His/her research interests should be related to dimer models at least in some of its aspects. Possible research themes include: determinantal processes, discrete differential geometry and complex analysis, integrable systems, statistical mechanics, conformally invariant stochastic processes.

The default affiliation of the post-doc would be the probability department (LPSM) of Sorbonne Université, which is located in the center of Paris and interacts with many other research institutions.

Joining another home institution of a member of the DIMERS project can be considered. The list of members with their affiliation is available here.

Applications should contain:

  • a CV
  • a list of publications
  • a research statement of about 4 pages, with research achievements and upcoming projects
  • two recommendation letters to be sent directly to postdoc@dimers.science
  • a cover letter explaining possible interactions with members of the project and affiliation preferences

The application is done through the CNRS website with this announcement (which requires the creation of an account on their platform, in the candidate area)

and should be sent before Jan 5, 2020 by e-mail to postdoc@dimers.science.

Applicants are expected to have a PhD in mathematics, theoretical physics or computer science when the position starts.
