"Complex contact manifolds and geometry of secants" (CoCoMaGeS)
Polish title:
Zespolone rozmaitości kontaktowe i geometria siecznych
The project is realized within the
Sonata Bis
programme of National Science Centre, Poland.
Time span of the project:
August 1st, 2018 -- July 31st, 2023 (60 months)
Project number:
2017/26/E/ST1/00231
Main Location:
Institute of Mathematics of Polish Academy of Sciences (IMPAN), Warsaw, Poland.
Participants:
- Jarosław Buczyński, IMPAN, principal investigator
- Weronika Buczyńska, MIMUW (Math at University of Warsaw), investigator
- Maria Donten-Bury, MIMUW (Math at University of Warsaw), investigator
- Giovanni Moreno, FUW (Physics at University of Warsaw), investigator
- Aleksandra Borówka, postdoc Oct 1st, 2018 - Sep 30, 2021,
- postdoc in secant varieties and related notions (expected employment period: two years from Sep 2020),
- 2-3 Phd students
- 2 MSc students
Student scholarships:
The project has a possibility of funding several scholarships
for students in the Master program and PhD program:
- !Open call! Scholarship for a PhD student, deadline: Aug 22nd, 2018.
- Soon we will open a call for a MSc student scholarship.
- Further PhD scholarships are expected to begin in Oct 2019, Oct 2020, perhaps also Oct 2021.
- Another MSc scholarship is expected to begin between Oct 2020 and Oct 2021.
Postdoc positions:
Two postdoctoral positions will be funded jointly with the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
Contact manifolds are the main topic of the first position (awarded to Aleksandra Borówka).
The deadline for applications for the first position was April 30th, 2018.
Details and an official announcement are available here.
Later in 2020 another position related to secant varieties will be announced.
