Positions available

  • A position for a PhD student (from December 2018) is available within the project "Random matrix models: from biomolecules to topological recursions", in the “Team” program funded by the Foundation for Polish Science under the Smart Growth Operational Programme. This is an interdisciplinary project, aiming to develop the theory of matrix models and topological recursions, to understand their role in modern aspects of mathematical physics, and to employ such tools to formulate new topological and combinatorial characteristics of biomolecules. An experience of a candidate in the field of random matrix theory and topological recursions, or theoretical biophysics and various programming techniques, will be an asset. Application documents should include a formal application letter for the position (with scanned signature), “Information on the processing of personal data” (available at http://bsp.adm.uw.edu.pl/bsp/druki-i-formularze/), a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, two letters of recommendation, and MSc. diploma (or a formal confirmation of MSc. degree). All documents, preferably in pdf format, should be sent by e-mail to psulkows [at] fuw.edu.pl (with "Team – PhD application" in the subject line). Primary consideration will be given to applications received by October 25th, 2018. Candidates may also be invited for an interview in the second round of applications. All inquiries in regards to this announcement should be sent to Piotr Sułkowski (psulkows [at] fuw.edu.pl).

  • A two-year postdoctoral position (from December 2018) is available within the project "Random matrix models", in the “Team” program funded by the Foundation for Polish Science under the Smart Growth Operational Programme. This is an interdisciplinary project, aiming to develop the theory of matrix models and topological recursions, to understand their role in modern aspects of mathematical physics, and to employ such tools to formulate new topological and combinatorial characteristics of biomolecules. An experience of a candidate in the field of random matrix theory, topological recursions, and their applications in high energy or mathematical physics will be an asset. A successful candidate should hold the PhD degree not longer than 4 years. Application documents should include a formal application letter for the position (with scanned signature), “Information on the processing of personal data” (available at http://bsp.adm.uw.edu.pl/bsp/druki-i-formularze/), a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, two letters of recommendation, and a PhD diploma (or a formal confirmation of PhD degree). All documents, preferably in pdf format, should be sent by e-mail to psulkows [at] fuw.edu.pl (with "Team – postdoc application" in the subject line). Primary consideration will be given to applications received by October 25th, 2018. Candidates may also be invited for an interview in the second round of applications.

This is an interdisciplinary project, aiming to develop the theory of matrix models and topological recursions, and to employ such tools to formulate new topological and combinatorial characteristics of biomolecules. The tasks of a postdoctoral scholar will include developing measures of complexity of biomolecules and using them to characterize and to classify RNA and protein chains; setting up internet tools for such an analysis; supporting design of RNA and RNA-protein nanostructures, also in collaboration with our partner experimental laboratory at the Aarhus University. An experience of a candidate in (theoretical) biophysics and various programming techniques will be an asset. A successful candidate should hold the PhD degree not longer than 4 years. Application documents should include a formal application letter for the position (with scanned signature), “Information on the processing of personal data” (available at http://bsp.adm.uw.edu.pl/bsp/druki-i-formularze/), a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, two letters of recommendation, and a PhD diploma (or a formal confirmation of PhD degree).
