Three post-doc positions at Orsay

Dear Colleagues,

Emmanuel Breuillard and myself are advertising for three post-doc positions at the Universit ́e Paris-Sud 11 at Orsay (France) starting September 2011. These positions are for 24 months (an extension up to 36 months may be possible for 2 of the positions).

Applicants should be willing to work in the following fields understood in the broad sense : geometry, group theory, arithmetic, analysis, probability and dynamical systems. An interest in the study of group actions, Teichmuller theory or geometric structures will be appreciated but not considered as necessary.

In addition to his own salary the post-doc will receive a personal travel grant of 2000 Euros a year as well as funds to purchase a computer. On top of that they will be eligible for additional travel and equipment funding from departmental resources. Finally, French language courses could be provided to the post-doctoral fellow if desired.

Successful applicants will be expected to have graduated from a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral program by the end of the academic year 2010-2011.
